Barely Lethal movie review: hidden in plain sight

28 August 2015 9:14 AM, PDT | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Charming and funny, a wonderfully sweet and silly mashup of spy stuff and high-school comedies, like if John Hughes made a James Bond movie. I’m “biast” (pro): desperate for movies about girls and women

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Here we go again. After Lila & Eve earlier this summer, here’s another example of a film that, if it were about a guy, would have gotten a big splashy release instead of being shuffled off to the land of VOD. (Arguably, American Ultra is sort of a guy version of this. That opened on 2,778 screens in North America. Barely Lethal opened on 22… after it had been on VOD for a month.) The fact that is stars Hailee Steinfeld, one of the most interesting young actors working today, and in a role that shows off comedy chops I don »

Barely Lethal review: “Mean Girls meets Kingsman, but not as good”

Barely Lethal review: Despite it’s very different twist, Barely Lethal turns out to be just another teen movie. Barely Lethal review

Barely Lethal is the brand new movie from director Kyle Newman, who you may remember brought us that really rather good Fanboys a few years back – the film about the young guys that want to break into George Lucas’ home to screen The Phantom Menace? I really liked that. Following on from Fanboys, Newman worked on The Crazies TV show, and another couple of shorts projects before landing the gig to direct Barely Lethal, which can only be described as a cross between Mean Girls, Spy Kids, and well, Kingsman.

Scripted by John D’Arco, the film revolves around the character of Megan Walsh (Hailee Steinfeld), an orphaned teenager who was brought up by Samuel L. Jackson‘s Hardman, a mysterious figure who runs an organisation called the Prescott School for Girls, »

Movie Review – Barely Lethal (2015)

27 August 2015 7:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Barely Lethal, 2015

Directed by Kyle Newman.

Starring Hailee Steinfeld, Jessica Alba, Sophie Turner, Thoman Mann, Dove Cameron, Rachael Harris, Jason Ian Drucker and Samuel L. Jackson.

Synopsis:

A teenage special ops agent coveting a “normal” adolescence fakes her own death and enrolls in a suburban high school. She quickly learns that surviving the treacherous waters of high school is more challenging than international espionage.

Actress Hailee Steinfeld is seemingly everywhere now that her Hollywood stock is on the vertical up-and-up. After captivating audiences aged just 14 in The Coen Brothers’ excellent True Grit, the Californian actress has moved swiftly through film after film with fine performances in Begin Again, The Homesman and this summer’s Pitch Perfect 2 whose massive box-office success will no doubt see her return for a third aca-go-round. Still only 18, the world is her oyster but she takes a break from the musical word to get down-and-dirty in action-thriller-comedy Barely Lethal which, »

Film Review: ‘Some Kind of Beautiful’

23 August 2015 2:29 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

There comes a point in “Some Kind of Beautiful” when a boy, his father and his grandfather stand together on a pier, unzip their flies and proudly urinate into the Pacific Ocean — a scene of intergenerational bonding that Salma Hayek watches from afar with an affectionate “Aww, isn’t that sweet” expression on her face. It’s a wretched moment for any actress to have to play, though it’s certainly preferable to the one in which Hayek imitates a series of noisy, grunting male orgasms in front of two prim school administrators, whose expressions of withering unamusement will likely be matched by the audience’s own. From first frame to last, “Some Kind of Beautiful” is some kind of hideous, a perfect storm of romantic-comedy awfulness that seems to set the ailing genre back decades with the sheer force of its ineptitude. Commercially and artistically, this Lionsgate atrocity is »

Some Kind of Beautiful Is Some Kind of Ugly

22 August 2015 2:24 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Some Kind of Beautiful, which apparently at one point had the significantly less generic (but kind of icky) title How to Make Love Like an Englishman, is a breezily sentimental romantic comedy in which everybody is hateful to one another. Look past its colorful, smooth surfaces and something corrosive emerges. And it’s not like the film isn’t aware of this. But it doesn’t really know what to do with it.The movie’s well cast, though. Pierce Brosnan plays Richard, a Cambridge English professor who when we first meet him is carrying on his father’s legacy of lecturing to adoring co-eds about the Romantic Age while shtupping them after class. One of those co-eds, Kate (Jessica Alba), has snared him, however; six months into their relationship, she’s convinced him to come down to London to meet her visiting corporate raider father. Dad never shows (in fact, »

Some Kind of Nonsense: Vaughan’s Unintentional Antithesis of the RomCom

Not long into Some Kind of Beautiful, the new film from director Tom Vaughan, a man best known for his 2008 Ashton Kutcher/Cameron Diaz film What Happens in Vegas, it becomes achingly clear that someone, somewhere pitched this film with intentions of crafting a romantic comedy. However, the film wasn’t painted in shades of either, and has the opposite effect of deadening emotional receptors. Staunchly filled with resolutely sturdy clichés in the hoary tradition of the aging lothario coming to uncertain terms with his playboy instinct and need for companionship, Vaughan and first time screenwriter Matthew Newman glide through this set-up with an icy dazedness, as if daring us to wade through its fretful yet uneventful schemes to an outcome prophesized from the moment its three leads converge.

Richard (Pierce Brosnan) is a Cambridge poetry professor, aging gracefully »

Salma Hayek Gets Butt Naked In Movie ‘Some Kind of Beautiful’ (Video)

20 August 2015 6:45 PM, PDT | GossipCop | See recent GossipCop news »

Salma Hayek romps around nude in the upcoming movie Some Kind of Beautiful, and Gossip Cop has a clip of it. In one particular scene, Hayek's butt naked in bed with Pierce Brosnan when her sister (Jessica Alba), with whom Brosnan's character has a child, unexpectedly shows up. That prompts Hayek to jump of bed and expose her bare body, as she scurries out of Brosnan's bedroom, past an amused gardener, and then leaps into a pool. See the video here. »

Bitch Stole My Look! Jessica Alba & Lily Collins Stun in the Same Blue Floral Crop Top Set

20 August 2015 9:03 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

You know what they say, ladies: Great minds think alike. Evidently sharing the same brain wave, Jessica Alba and Lily Collins both fell head-over-heels for this crisp little Sam & Lavi two-piece ensemble. And rightfully so, considering this dainty floral design is in sync with each of their personal street styles (which Fyi, are flawless), and makes a perfect end-of-summer outfit. Whipping out Sam & Lavi's Laurel top and Isadora skirt—which are both on sale, we might add— for producer Jennifer Klein's annual Day of Indulgence bash in Brentwood, Calif., Lily kept accessories to a minimum to  better showcase the enviable crop top set. Paired with a black fringe crossbody, nude wedges »

Jessica Alba Knows She's Been In "So Many" Bad Movies

18 August 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | TooFab | See recent TooFab news »

With films like "The Love Guru," "Valentine’s Day," "Good Luck Chuck" and "Fantastic Four" on her resume, Jessica Alba is aware not all of her films are critical darlings. "I mean, there's so many bad ones," she admits in a new interview with Allure. "But they're fun. You learn from every experience you have, right?" Though she seems comfortable with her IMDb credits, Alba may still have a regret or two. "I wish I found my voice as a person earlier," she continues, "because I felt like I had to just shut up and do what they wanted me to, even though it was against how I really felt." "I never wanted to play into a stereotype, where its like, Oh, you’re just the girl who gets saved by the guy, and she doesn’t know how to make decisions, and she gets overwhelmed with all this stuff happening around her, »

Jessica Alba Talks Gwyneth Paltrow: "People Aren't Lumping Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher Together"

18 August 2015 6:53 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jessica Alba does not view Gwyneth Paltrow as competition, nor does the actress and co-founder of The Honest Company see Blake Lively or Reese Witherspoon as rivals. In fact, as she explains in Allure's September issue, she finds it "unfair" to "lump actresses together" when they launch their own business ventures. "People aren't lumping Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher together. They do other businesses," she says in reference to the singer, 34, who bought a $35 million stake in MySpace in 2011, and the TV star, 37, who is a venture capitalist. "I think it's expected that when you get success in one area, you're supposed to evolve and try to do something else—especially in »

Jessica Alba Calls Gwyneth Paltrow Comparisons "Unfair," Sexist

She's just being honest! Jessica Alba isn't shy when it comes to how she feels about comparisons between herself and Gwyneth Paltrow. Alba, 34, thinks the played-out contrast between The Honest Company and Goop is sexist.

9 Reasons Fantastic Four Is A Fantastic Fail

17 August 2015 4:03 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Fox

Fox just can’t seem to get this right. Their previous attempts at bringing Marvel’s First Family to life on the big screen (Fantastic Four and Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer) were massive disappointments. Those films had spots of brightness in the films (such as the brilliant chemistry between Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans) and a tone that was more or less consistent with the comics. But those things were countered by stupid decisions like turning Galactus into a giant cloud and the incredibly bad casting of Julian McMahon as Doom and Jessica Alba as the Invisible Woman.

I had hoped that the third time would be the charm with Fox and the Ff. Even though they were using the awful Ultimate Fantastic Four origin as opposed to Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original take and even though the film was intended to be a »

Nothing but a number! "I was really sad when I turned 30," Jessica Alba told Us Weekly in April. "I still wanted to party like a rock star."
