When I die, the scientists of the future, they're gonna find it all. They gonna know, once there was a Hushpuppy, and she live with her daddy in the Bathtub." - Hushpuppy (my new favourite protagonist starring in my latest favourite film).

(us) wrote: Nothing I can write would fully express just how horrible this movie is. It's not even bad in a funny way, it's just embarrassing. Short of Mr. Jingles, I can't think of many movies that are worse than this catastrophe. Seriously, the acting is appalling, the script shameful, and the direction something from the a film school text book on how not to direct a film. Bottom line, just don't watch this. Please, please don't watch this.

A Pre-Bend it Like Beckham and Pirates of the Caribbean, an appealing Keira Knightley was only 15 at the time. She had provided an inspiration to the imaginations of many pre-teen girls( its assumed target audience) who will delight in Knightley's Gwyn's accomplishments. A fun tale added to a beloved lore.

He really proved to me that he was able to make an ALRIGHT movie. But this is a complete disappointment, and why am I surprised! I thought that after that movie, he would slowly but surely get better and better, but this is definitely not the way to go. "Icarus" or "The Killing Machine" was absolutely horrible, for it's absence of plot, sense, quality, aesthetics, and overall necessities for a good picture. Lundgren plays a guy who used to be in the KGB but now he lives in the United States. It seems that his past has come back to haunt him, and now it's threatening his family's safety. So there is only one thing to do. Kick some ass. The problem with the plot was that it wasn't introduced in a way for me to actually care about the characters. Lundgren's character's introduction was mind-numbing and dull, so what happened was, an hour through the film, I honestly didn't really care about what was going on. I guess that's what happens when you can't develop your story enough. The acting, was horrible, as expected. The lines were atrocious. I don't know if Dolph wrote them, but it sure sounds like it, because it has a complete absence of basic human qualities. Everything seems to contrived and manifested. There is absolutely nothing real here, everything is so fake, and the bare grasp that we had on any relation with any character is completely erased once the movie dives deeper and deeper. It's outrageously aggravating. Here's just a little bit of information. This movie obviously wasn't released theatrically in the United States because it would have bombed critically and of course financially, but I think it was released in Europe. I'm pretty sure the film's budget was over a million dollars, and the film made less than 100,000. That's just...horrible. I know that doesn't have to do with the quality of the picture, I'm just saying. But it's no wonder that the movie did so poorly because it's content is THAT poor. There is absolutely nothing good about it. Unlike "Command Performance", I felt no excitement, no commitment, no attachment...all I thought about was hoping that the movie would end. It pains for me to say it, but Dolph Lundgren is NOT going in the direction that he needs to go. He needs to get better, not worse. This movie is horrible.
(au) wrote: This film is executed like a play. While the ending is far from the best part--a rather obvious end, really--the script is written to showcase the actors as they probe each others' feelings, keeping the viewer guessing and re-forming our opinions towards them and toward the subject itself (infidelity). The lines are sometimes grossly unrealistic and horribly verbose, but for the most part clever and even thought-provoking. Robert Downey Jr. truly delivers, bringing the drama alive when he arrives and starts showcasing his stellar, convincing acting talents. Don't expect to be treated to any ultimate truths or memorable romance, but you will probably be entertained. There are a couple good laughs but this is not a party movie by any stretch. Viewers are in for a dialogue-heavy social drama that occurs almost entirely in one apartment and focuses inward. Highly entertaining, though far from perfect.

(ag) wrote: Alternately heartwarming and heartbreaking major chick flick (a bona fide 10-hanky special) captures the intensity of a friendship as it recounts the lifelong alliance of two opposites. It stars the always passionate midler and the more detached Hershey. This hard-hearted sorts yawn its a sappy soap opera, but others say when you need a good cathartic cry, this is the guilty pleasure is the one to watch!!

Lots of funny moments, and definately memorable, its worth seeking out if you like strange movies (or are a big fan of Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, it makes a great double feature with this). Christopher Lee and Alan Arkin are both great. Definately reccomended
