Alarms first went off at the extremely clichd makeover-montage-while-the-other-person-sits-in-a-chair-in-the-middle-of-the-store-as-if-any-store-would-allow-that. Decent characters although a bit one-dimensional and cookie cutter. The dialogue would've been good if they only stopped at the point where it goes from 'witty and fresh' to 'nobody talks like that'. I had a couple of sincerely loud laughs, but by the end it felt like eating through a cardboard box just to get to the m&m's in the middle, and then having to eat through the rest of the cardboard box.Nice try and nice style, but it was very overcooked, the team has to find the right balance.

It is like a little vignette with the toys putting on a little Hawaiian vacation of sorts for Barbie and Ken. It is funny enough, and it has the wonderfully lovable characters from the Toy Story films (at this point probably one of my favorite film series ever). I wouldn't rank this among the best of the Toy Story stuff or even the Pixar shorts, but I liked it fine enough.

William B (de) wrote: The interesting concept is about the only thing keeping me from shutting off my TV right now. With Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler, I thought we'd be watching a pretty solid film tonight. I was wrong. Don't get me wrong, I was entertained at a couple points. But Michael Bay's cheap thrills and generic Hollywood plot tricks were endlessly frustrating. Just when you thought you'd seen it all, another "Deus Ex Machina" happens. Film leaves a bad taste in mouth. Maybe I need to start watching independent films that aren't motivated as much by revenue.

Hamad S (jp) wrote: This Almodovar has the usual high-energy craziness as any other of his works, but it failed to make a lasting impression. It seems that there were (at least) two (good) stories competing with each other, which left this viewer unresponsive to either. Sadly, this one just does not stand on it's own without the crutch of the Almodovar name.

Nandi C (ca) wrote: Again, I will say this. If your going to tell a story on a person's life, tell the darn truth. I saw this movie once, and I am sorry, I had no feelings or nothing for it. We know Billie had her troubles, but why add more to the misery pot? Sorry. though I have to say it's worth Billy Dee doing his thing and see Diana sing a few of Billie's hits, uhh uhh. I'm not feeling this.
K G (jp) wrote: Bob Hope and Bing Crosby make such a great team. i personally think that Hope steals the show, though. the storyline isn't exactly perfect: it seems more like numerous ideas stitched together. the movie is rather hilarious all the same and the situations the guys get themselves into is simply outrageous. entertaining.

To be honest, I checked this film out because of the cast: Elizabeth Olsen, Oscar Isaac, Tom Felton, and Jessica Lange are all superb actors, but their characters never had much depth. There were major problems with the adaptation of the screenplay from mile Zola's 19th century novel, "Therese Racquin," while the pacing was an issue for me as well. The production design transported me to 19th Century Paris very well, but the English language used never felt like it was from that period. In Secret does begin with some promise and I actually was drawn to the characters, but after 20 or so minutes it began to lose its appeal as it became hard to sympathize with any of the characters. We've seen this sort of Shakespearean tragedy played out many times and much better than it is done here. Jessica Lange is the only one who actually raises above from the rest of the cast and tries to salvage the movie, but it is expected considering her character had to undergo the most emotional ranges. Her character is the strongest thing about In Secret where she slowly transforms from an unsympathetic character to a sympathetic one.The story is set during the 1860's in Paris as we are introduced to a forced marriage between Thrse Raquin (Elizabeth Olsen) and her cousin Camille (Tom Felton) by his domineering mother, Madame Raquin (Jessica Lange). Therese was raised by Madame after her mother passed away and her father decided to leave her in their care before moving to Africa. Therese grew up playing nurse to the often sick Camille, and eventually was forced to marry him. Camille cares for Therese as a brother, but doesn't really show any affection towards her as a husband, which leaves Therese sexually repressed. One day Camille brings an old friend home. His name is Laurent (Oscar Isaac) and he soon begins a secret affair with Therese behind Camille's back, which eventually leads to tragic consequences.This is the third film I've seen Olsen in over the past two weeks, and despite not choosing the best projects for her I still consider she is a talented actress. She has not reached the same level she did in Martha Marcy May Marlene, but she is someone whose movies I'm always looking forward to. Despite this, I still didn't like the character she played in this film and didn't believe the chemistry she shared with Oscar Isaac on screen. This period drama really relies on that strong chemistry, but other than the forbidden love premise the film doesn't have much going for it. The film explores common issues we've seen in other better films. In Secret uncovers the tragic consequences of dark secrets and how they can end up destroying you. Only Jessica Lange fans might leave this film satisfied because she does deliver the strongest performance in the movie, but nothing else works very well in this uninspired film.
Robyn L (es) wrote: One of the most quotable films of all time. And also one of the greatest. My favorite scene is in the car when they're discussing food and hash in Europe, it sounds like a conversation i'd have with one of my friends. A insanely clever and humorous neo-noir mix up.
