It isn't Sandra Pires that makes it worth at least a look...
Look, I find it disheartening that the story line between Elfi Eschke and Ben Cross wasn't focused on by these writers just a bit more...THAT was the hilarious part of the movie--not the good twin/bad twin stuff. That was all done before anyway and is old hat.
This movie did show me that Cross needs to do more comedy. He IS funny. I know he gets used for bad guy roles a lot, but he would be an asset to any real comedy show out there...I'd love to see him show up on "Men of a Certain Age" or on SNL. I've seen some of the joking he does and he's a natural at it. This guy has never really had a chance to show his stuff so Hollywood needs to give him a shot. There aren't many like him left. Yes, he's well known for playing Abrams in Chariots of Fire--but I didn't know who this guy was until 2009 and he is way too under- appreciated in my book.
I cannot fault the actors for the job the writer's did with this script. It could have been better, but I suspect that some of the funny scenes with Cross and Eschke ended up on the cutting room floor. These two were good in this picture together--and I am usually finicky about the actresses as much as the actors! And if you want to see him in a hilarious role, I highly recommend "Nightlife".
