(de) wrote: Best way to describe this movie would be...quirky. There's not much too it, nothing really happens, but there's a simple charm that makes it strangely likable. All the dialogue is improvised, which is impressive and gives the movie a more realistic feel. It feels like watching a home movie of this family around Christmas time. It covers a few issues in an honest manner, like the different lifestyles of someone young and single and someone married with a child and how these clash, as well as the embarrassment and consequences of a hard-partying alcoholic lifestyle. It doesn't make a commentary on these things, it sort of just shows them without any judgement and lets you make of it what you will; I really liked that. Still, the movie isn't great, and I don't think it's a movie I really see myself returning to. It was a nice enough time, but a lack of any real arc or conflict made it feel sort of empty. Okay, but not great.

Comme c'est en ce moment le triomphe d'Oamr Sy, on se retrouve dans un buddy-movie o un flic de banlieu se la joue "flic de beverly hills" doit faire quipe avec un flic de Paris pte-cul, fan de Bbel "le professionnel".

(es) wrote: "A rocket-propelled misadventure." A comic tale of three would-be entrepreneurs who set out to invent a rocket belt. The clash of their mismatched personalities soon dissolves the business into a morass of recriminations and retaliations, kidnapping, and murder in this parable of American dreams and delusions. REVIEW This is another quirky independent film, this one about a pair of business-oriented dreamers who are all attitude and no substance. The great idea is a working rocket belt, something neither of them know anything about. What they have instead is an abundance of business models, motivational pep talks and winning slogans. For the actual rocket belt they succeed in hiring an actual unemployed rocket scientist who begins to develop a prototype. Much of the humor is Gogolesque, treading a fine line between absurdity and apparent success. They are successful in raising money from dreamers like themselves. There is a broad satirical implication that "the money people" are a class apart requiring to be spoon fed a certain formula unrelated to business realities. But the project is satisfyingly rejected by the big-time investors, summarily dismissing it as needing "more science" (itself a business euphemism). The film is thus very amusing from the outset and I was prepared for more amusing developments. But the story takes some unfunny turns. The rocket belt becomes the focus of in-fighting which is carried almost to the point of bloodshed. This is probably because it is based on a true story, but that does nothing for poetic justice. This film turns into one focusing on male bonding or the lack of it. The two original entrepreneurs are best friends with a bond that supersedes anything, including reason. The third partner, the rocket scientist, engages with the two to gain recognition, but in the long run the original promoter is implacable. At issue is the prototype rocket belt itself which he has hidden. You aren't supposed to ask the seemingly reasonable question why the scientist, who is the only one who knows how the thing works, doesn't just build a second prototype--maybe this time one capable of better than 30 seconds flight time. So much is this an all-male film that what might otherwise have been a romance developing between the original promoter and Kirsten Wiig's character is simply dropped, as if for lack of interest. It all adds up to a flick which starts out very funny and is worth watching to the end, but with a little let-down so far as humor is concerned.

It requires a further understanding; because sometimes our lives is not exciting as a Hollywood movie. When we have no direction and our life is clueless, we could easily fit in this movie.
(ru) wrote: This movie was a misfire. First off, it felt more like a synopsis of a TV show that lasted three years than it did a movie. Secondly, the characters were the best part of this movie, and rather than dwell on those really interesting characters, it kept shoveling on more and more plot. Seldom will I say that a movie has too much plot, and this movie does. The comedy was pulled off with grace and aplomb, but the drama was handled ham-handedly. I was disappointed.

(au) wrote: Everyone Says I Love You is simply delightful. Woody Allen's decision to do a musical with a collection of respected actors who basically have no business singing was an inspired one. The characters are real people, not professional singers, so when they sing, they sound like real people. They sing because the emotions they're feeling can no longer be conveyed in simple dialogue (as it is with all musicals), and while a few of the actors prove themselves to be quite respectable singers (Edward Norton and Goldie Hawn in particular), most are merely passable, and the movie is all the more beautiful because of it. The musical selections are perfect, and each and every one slaps a huge grin across your face. It's nearly impossible not to fall in love with this film. Absolutely magical.

Cusack has huge hair and A. Baldwin just plain snake. Also O. Platt, D. Duchovney and even K. Spacey playing their parts. Cast overcrowding!
