(ag) wrote: Double the pleasure! Double the fun! Annie and Nina are both preggers, and it's a heartwarming, if a bit saccharine, sequel.
(br) wrote: This an extremely gripping movie that captures the toxicity of southern racism. Hackman and Dafoe shine at certain moments. They seem overshadowed by power of the film's subject at times.
(ca) wrote: Even though a musical may not have been the best choice, and Drew Barrymore and Ed Norton miscast, it's official...I must have been on something not to have liked two Woody Allen movies. (I believe this is the only Woody Allen movie I've seen that I thought was subpar.)
(jp) wrote: Why mess with a winning formula? Producers try to add comedy to Chuck Norris' standard action movie blueprint and the result is this regrettable film about two fortune hunters searching for a lost treasure.

(kr) wrote: I found this movie to be very entertaining and fulfilling. Was the movie a little outlandish as far as events that occur, yes. But...this movie did what most don't. It made me laugh out loud several times and kept me interested in what was going to happen to the main character. The way overly harsh main critic reviews of this movie are exactly why I don't like to read a review for a movie before I see and comment on it. I feel like sometimes the critics are under a lot of pressure to "go with the flow" and are afraid what other critics will think of them. Maybe not...I don't know but the difference between critic and audience reviews is extreme on this movie. And viewers from Netflix gave it almost a perfect score. Give this one a shot, I think you will enjoy it.

(br) wrote: Moody period gangster film. It's a good job and Bruce Willis still commands authority as a tough-guy hero in this one.
