Hard to believe this is a film by David O. Russell
12 February 2015 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

I had the misfortune of seeing this film the other night. And this is someone who is a fan of David O. Russell. I love films like Three Kings, The Fighter, and Silver Linings Playbook, but this doesn't even feel like an O. Russell movie. It is the most baffling thing I've seen him make.

This movie does not know what it is trying to be; it's a slapstick comedy, but also a black comedy, but also a romantic comedy. This might be because it was written by three different people. Some of the comedic segments were painful to watch. At times this felt like the least funny Steve Martin kiddie comedy ever made.

Jessica Biel and Jake Gyllenhaal are quirky and have somewhat of a slight amount of chemistry between them, but this is not enough to save the movie. The supporting cast is only made up of cartoon characters.

Some of the songs and sound effects that you hear during certain segments are just bizarre. This is like watching a parody of what a bad David O. Russell movie would look like.

Overall, if you're a fan of Russell you don't really lose anything beside 100 minutes of your life by watching this film. But if you aren't a hardcore movie person and you just wanna watch a comedy for Friday night then avoid at all cost.
