stupid, pointless, boring, pedantic, idiotic, and did I mention pointless?
Wow, what a challenge, trying to commit ten lines to a movie whose script didn't deserve ten lines, nor ten minutes of my time. I'll try to be strong. One good thing I can say is that Elias Koteas displays terrific range as an actor and is very underrated in general. Here, in this stupid and pointless movie, he plays a stupid and pointless man who, when his flight out of town for a business trip is delayed, sneaks back to his home so he can spy on his wife and daughter while they stupidly believe he is out of town. When the wife mentions how strange his behavior is, he acts like a stupid deceptive child, like all stupid men do when they're called out on their lies. He witnesses nothing amiss and nothing out of the ordinary. Yawn. Somewhere in there, Edie Falco is being her typically irritating self with that hideously ugly "Noo Yawwwwk" accent making all of her lines indecipherable. Apparently her character is hellbent on aggravating the crap out of some visiting "mooovie stah". Someone PLEASE get that woman a vocal coach!!! Well, looky there, I've wasted 5 minutes of my life discussing a movie whose plot didn't deserve 5 seconds of my time. Wanna waste a couple hours of your own life watching this idiotic abortion of a "film"? Be my guest, but don't say you weren't warned. Disclaimer: I don't need "action" to make a movie interesting, and I often enjoy pointless and slow movies, but this one was just TOO pretentious and stupid to be forgiven.
