The Plot: A comedy centered around a foul-mouthed, junior high teacher (Diaz) who, after being dumped by her sugar daddy, begins to woo a colleague — a move that pits her against a well-loved teacher.
The Buzz: Nope, no buzz. No competition here. Bad Teacher could (or should) be Diaz’ swan song as a sex symbol, she’s just not looking the part these days. Director Jake Kasdan does have some reputable directorial chops, most notably five episodes of Freaks and Geeks, but this looks to be just another lukewarm comedy. A weak cast and a weak premise will probably doom this film at the box office.
So the film has romance and it has comedy, but the primary focus of the story is Not the romantic relationship between Aaron Eckhart and Jennifer Aniston, as the marketing of the film would have you believe. Love Happens is a much deeper story than the average rom-com, but for the sake of reviewing the film, we’ll just assume it fits nicely into my abnormally strict definition of what make a romantic comedy.
Zach Galifianakis is a man of multiple talents. Comedian, pianist/musician (sort of) and or course, he’s an actor. Anyone who’s seen The Hangover knows that he’s a very funny guy, and his comedy routine, while dry and off-beat, is very good as well. But, I’m not sure everyone knows what kind of an actor he really is, at least not yet. Visioneers will give you a wonderful sneak peak into the thespian talents of Zach Galifianakis.
Visioneers is the feature film debut for director Jared Drake, working from a script by his brother Brandon Drake. The very first thing that came to mind for me early on while watching this movie was a fear that it was going to be Terry Gilliam’s Brazil all over again.

Rating: 7.6 out of 10
Visioneers is the impressive feature debut of brothers Jared and Brandon Drake. A story driven exploration of an already here Corporate Dystopia, and what it takes to survive as a human being. The flick came in at under $1m and the Bros Drake adapt to circumstance by making great use of simple and retro technology. Clever dialogue had me laughing my ass off, especially in the first half, and made me think of a light hearted version of Hal Hartley in movies like the Unbelievable Truth. I love absurdist humor and word games. I thought the story lost a bit of its power when it got into the love and pole vaulting can conquer all, but I know others will disagree with me on that.
