No Ed or Woody
14 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

Watched this film after watching Ed Burns Newlyweds. What's the difference? First of all I could understand Ed. The lead actor here speaks so fast you can't make out all he says. I understand he's a director, but neither Ed or Woody don't have to worry. Ed's movie had a great cast who had presence while this movie has one actress with a little presence, the blonde "actress" in the movie. She seems more alive than the boring dinner conversations.

The movie lost me after 10 minutes but I stuck with it because I thought it had to get better. It didn't. I also didn't understand all the scenes with him and his wife in bed that really didn't push the story forward, in fact it slowed down to almost stopping. The lead seems to not really care, he carries an arrogance that is annoying as hell. He really think's he's Woody or Ed. Maybe better.

I don't like to diss movies, I know how hard it is to make good movies, I just wish they would have given the money to someone else.

Movies about movies don't usually work with the exception of Sunset Blvd and The Stuntman and a few others that don't come to mind. This one doesn't hold together and the lead's monotone doesn't help. Trouble is, nobody really cares about what movie people do, believe me, I know that all too well.
