this movie last night. I'm not gonna lie, my initial motivation was strictly about Ryan Reynolds. Ironically though, his extended brooding poses were possibly the most annoying thing about this movie. Hope Davis and Melissa McCarthy were spot on fantastic. I ended up getting REALLY excited thinking it was the next Memento, or Adaptation, or some unique hybrid of the two. I was on the edge of my seat, right until the very end.... where I kinda felt like I just got unwittingly sucked into a Ron L Hubbard book... where you think it's going to make sense until you realize it's really about Scientology. Not that the movie is about Scientology, I don't think. I watched |
I still give it 4/5 stars for being refreshingly different. I feel the potential could have been great, though. Charlie Kaufman would've nailed it, methinks.
