Why Stop Now!! Because it's not funny, entertaining and, there are better things to waste your time on
I have to say that after watching this movie I was shocked to see Jesse, whom I would like to believe has a well-endowed acting talent and now a career, would do this kind of script, again. I mean, if anyone, has seen 30 minutes or less, both the movies are similar in more ways than one. A normal guy who is pulled into criminal frenzy, tries to cope up but always finds time to tell the girl that he loves her. I mean in both films, the progress and character development goes just at the same pace, but 30 minutes was way too fun with proper script and punch lines. Because it's funny the first time, but unappealing, rather painful the second time.
The story has a happy ending running on a straight line with high predictability. The acting of Melissa Leo, Jesse and Tracy actually salvaged the film from shrinking to the bottom of IMDb ranking database.
My verdict, if you've seen the trailer, then that's it. It's the whole movie, nothing new is going to happen in 1 hour, 25 minutes.
