Sheer unpretentious entertainment. The three Minis car chase is awesome.
I understand all the rave reviews this movie gets, it has all the ingredients of an excellent arthouse film. But it didn't grab me for a second. I found it chaotic and slow, and the performance of some actors poor. Only Cruz shines.
To quote the Globe and Mail review, it's a fascinating character study insolated within a mediocre film. No one plays a jerk more convincingly than Douglas.
Pretty funny comedy, Reynolds is on a roll to the point of overacting and Faris is not too shabby either. Some golden comedy moments keep this movie afloat.
An amusing little cinematic snack laden with caricature-esque characters, entertaining enough and quickly forgotten.
