(us) wrote: I'm kind of puzzled. Was this movie supposed to be funny? This movie started out fairly enjoyable. It started out dealing with a sweet story about a writer who seems to think that no man is interested in him until he meets someone on line, and begins long phone conversations with him, and discovers that it is someone he has been admiring. And, you think, this could get interesting. Well, it turns out that the man he admires thinks he is someone else, and that someone is the writer's stud room-mate. Instead of telling him the truth, the writer decides to let his online crush believe that the room-mate is him, and they sort of switch identities as part of a challenge to see if true love will win over brawn. What follows is a predictable story of missed chances at making things right, and making mistakes without using your tiny little brain first. I found the whole idea of the switched identities annoying. Mainly because there was scene after scene of where things could have been made right, and it just dragged on and on. If I were there, I would have gave the writer a buggs bunny slapping! Snap out of it, and tell him already! Gees! If it wasn't for the older room-mate of the cowboy, I think I would have not liked this movie at all. But, it did have some nice moments. But, a lot of it was very predictable, including the end of the film. I didn't give it a rotten review based on performance. The acting was decent, and the roles were likeable. But, the story just wasn't that great.
(it) wrote: a pretty good movie about how different people need to get together to make life easier. when a skinhead brutally attacked an indian immigrant and kills him, a public defender is given the tast of showing and guiding the skinhead to really come into grip on what his crime was all about. the twister is that the lawyer is jewish. the movie is very completing. a bit slow at a few times, but the acting is very well done. good movie to see.

(gb) wrote: This film has the ability to make anyone laugh not matter your age, gender or ability...The film came out in 2004 and made 69.1M in the box office. The two brilliant brother actors, Shawn Wayans and Marlon wayans play as two undercover agents (Kevin and Marcus Copeland) waiting to make a bust on a drug scheme, when it all goes horribly wrong. As their rivalry partners show them up (Lochlyn Munro and Eddie Velez), it makes them determined to make a comeback. Two daughters of the very wealthy Warren Vandergeld are in trouble becuase of what their farther has done. The two agents go undercover trying to keep them safe dressed as girls. But you will have to watch to see how it all ends. Altogether This film keeps you laughing, ingredient and waiting for what madness will happen next. My personal opinion on this film is outstanding, i enjoyed it very much and have admittedly watched it a fair few times. If i was going to recommend this film to anyone it would literaly be ANYONE... Everybody can enjoy the comedy and the great acting within the film. If i was going to saying anything bad about this film is that they have not made another one.
(es) wrote: The acting and the direction suck. The only thing good about this movie is the concept of showing what happens when you run past your ex- and when two people from your past get together (ex- and ex-best-friend in this movie). Probably may come as a quick 'hint movie' for teens. Otherwise, it's a watch and forget movie.
(au) wrote: This is a forgotten classic sci-fi from the 90's that is unfairly dismissed. Sure, it's not high-brow entertainment, but compared to CGI heavy the sci-fi trash served up today, 'Virtuosity' is beginning to look like a vintage wine. Crowe and Washington give the film a A-list vibe despite it's B-movie premise. Crowe looks like he's having the most fun playing the villain than any film he's starred in since. Those who like sci-fi and action should check it out.

(nl) wrote: A slightly more surreal offering from Hammer but still with its identifiable style. It's characters have a little more thoughtful depth to them, although it doesn't really work in terms of the films interest value.
