WOW!!!! For those of you who thought i had even a shred of intelligence in me, i can promise you it is now gone. This movie is by far the worst movie i have seen in the early 2013 so far. I never imagined that a movie with Emma Stone would be so bad. This movie has a great cast, but they are doing these stupid Mad TV style skits. The difference is that i loved Mad TV and this unfunny piece of shit is beyond comparison. I wouldn’t recommend this movie to anyone unless there is someone in your life that you really hate. Even then, it might be too severe of a punishment.
Honestly this was a huge surprise. I really enjoyed this because it was similar to the 90’s action movies that i loved to watch. The dialogue is bad,but the action is phenominal. I loved the characters in this movie as well as the amazing villain work of Peter Stormaire (Abruzzi in Prison Break). Definitely recommended for the action fan.
A very funny first 35 minutes, but then it flattens. I really don’t have a lot much more to say about it because i felt dumber after watching it
I had to watch it a 2nd time to decide how i truly felt about this movie. The positives for it are the performances of Leonardo Dicaprio, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L Jackson. It also has a lot of Tarrantino dialogue. The negative for me was the running time of 2 hours and 45 minutes. I could’ve easily shaved a good hour of this movie and had it still be just as entertaining. My overall opinion is good, but far from Tarrantino’s best.
Not a bad little movie for the family. Billy Crystal brings his status quo of wit and charm to a slapstick movie that is a little different for him. I did only give this film a 5.5 because it does have some problems. This just doesn’t seem like the kind of film Crystal is normally in. It does have it’s wits and charms, but the film seems more along the lines of a Kevin James or Adam Sandler film. I understand Crystal was cast because of the age of the character, but his kind of humor almost seems outdated in a film like this. The casting is also a bit of an issue with Marisa Tomei playing Crystal’s daughter. Billy is 16 years older than Marisa in real life and Tomei looks almost to old to play the daughter in this film. It’s a shame that Thomas Everitt Scott is left with nothing to do in this film. He is someone who i have come to admire a lot in the last 15 years as an actor, but he almost never stars in a film. Parental Guidance had a couple parts that put more of a smile on my face than a laugh. Not sure if that is what the director was going for, but i look at this as more of a cute film than a funny one. The kids were a perfect fit for the movie. Bailee Madison is slowly taking over as one of the better child stars, today. If you have a family night, i recommend giving this a shot. I think it’s a film that the adults and the kids will get a kick out of.
