Its about a hitman whose asked by his crime boss to collect a bag and bring it back to him. All of the instructions are straight forward but he's not allowed to look in the bag, no matter what. Whilst waiting in a hotel for the collectors to get the bag, a bunch of random events makes the whole transaction harder than he thought. On top of that, a girl ends up in Jacks hotel room because she is trying to escape from her pimps. Once Jack has fort of the crooked cops and a couple of criminals, with the girl by his side, he then meets up with his crime boss to exchange the bag for loads of money but all is not what it seems. I was actually enjoying the movie before all the random events started to happen. I liked Cusack and DeNiro's character but the girl spoilt it because she distracted Cusack from the whole mission. I also thought that the storyline got out of hand after a while but when the story unfolds at the end, it actually made a lot of sense. By that time I had lost interest in the movie so I really wasn't that bothered about how the film was going to pan out. Anyway, the performances were average from Cusack and DeNiro and the script really wasn't that great. DeNiro wouldn't stop waffling on about rubbish, which got on my nerves after a while and I really didn't understand why Cusack just didn't open the bag when he first got it. At the end of the day, it was just a bad day at the office for these two veteran actors and I'm not surprised that this film went straight to DVD. Not that great!Round-Up:At one point in DeNiro's career, you would have never imagined his movies going straight to DVD but now it really isn't a surprise. I didn't understand why he had that awful wig and weird nose extinction in this film either! Anyway, this is the first movie directed by David Grovic who also produced the awful Dying of the Light with Nicolas Cage. Basically, its the second time that he had the chance to make a movie with some decent actors and he's made a right mess of it. There's a couple of twists near the end of this film which would have made the movie quite clever if the middle wasn't so sketchy. Anyway, I'm obviously not alone by saying that this movie really wasn't that great, judging by the movies takings but I really doubt that it will damage Cusack or DeNiro's reputation.Budget: N/AWorldwide Gross: $462,000 (Terrible!)I recommend this movie to people who are into their crime/drama/thrillers about a hitman who has to collect a bag for his crime boss but he's not allowed to look in the bag, regardless of the circumstances. 3/10

This was the last movie when you might've asked yourself "Who's Keira Knightley?" as 2003 was her springboard to superstardom - you may have heard about a movie released just one month earlier she was in about some cursed pirates. Her appeal is just as evident here as the striker who recruits Jess off the park pitch into an organized league and the two become fast friends. Parminder Negra is equally charismatic as Jess and a pity she hasn't been in more movies. Sharp eyes will recognize Anupam Kher playing her father as Bradley Cooper's sympathetic psychiatrist from Silver Linings Playbook.Jess' attempt to keep her feet in both worlds provides an enthralling look into a culture with very different values, existing as a country within a country. A crowd-pleaser to be sure, and may be faulted for trying to please too much by fitting everything in a too-neat little package by the end. I also felt uneasy with the evolving relationship the team coach who appears mid-twenties has towards the girls, who presumably are near 18 since they talk about attending university soon, but look more like they are 15.

Think of it as a where cruel intentions, mean girls, and thirteen meet. however it isnt as good as any of them.

(mx) wrote: An iconic 'cop' movie from the 70s about a tough cop hunting down criminals using his own code of justice, portrayed by inimitable Clint Eastwood. This role is a logical continuation/enhancement of his previous roles in spaghetti westerns of Sergio Leone.
(br) wrote: There is something beyond hypnotic about this movie. It constantly feels dream like and almost nightmarish. The film centers on the chaos of the uprising on inhabitants of an island. The laugh of the one little old man is the best and when he gets a case of the giggles its gold. There is so much to dig in this movie
(es) wrote: The movie is not out of this world and could be considered another monotonous love story by many but, if you have some free time on your hands, give it a watch! You wont disappointed. A Case of You is still very entertaining and enjoyable. Sam Rockwell is memorable in his few moments on-screen along with Vince Vaughn and Brendan Fraser. Check it out when you can.
(au) wrote: First of all Sam Jackson is a bad motherfucker. But he can't sing. And I have been a fan of Christina Ricci's since The Addams Family but she can't sing either. Plus, she looked emaciated in this movie. I recall time in the flick when she lifts up her arms and ribs protrude everywhere. Yuck. I never thought she was fat before but what do I know. I don't work in Hollywood. Back to the movie. What the hell is this movie about? Well simply it's a story about love. Told in a very weird way. I saw the preview for this and said "What the fuck? I gotta see that!" I'll warn you. It's bizarre. And I'll leave the viewing of this up to you.
(gb) wrote: Very loosely adapted from the hit Broadway show, Cabaret follows a prim English student (Michael York) and an energetic stage performer (Liza Minnelli) as they chase fortune, romance, and dreams in Weimar-era Germany. Director Bob Fosse skillfully uses this film's backdrop of ascending Nazi prominence to highlight the pitfalls facing Jews, the LGBTQ community, and every other facet of theater culture that's vulnerable to racist fascism. What really sells this movie, however, are the invested performances from York and Minnelli. The Cabaret movie is very much a product of its time, but it still brings enough charm to be of interest to social historians and casual musical fans alike.
