Crop And Save
Due Date (2010)
This film was truly unbearable. The characters were unlikable, and the situations they got themselves into were frustrating to watch. Both leads do their best to rise above the banal and awkward script, but inevitably fail. The plot suffers from being forced to the typical conclusion - in which one main character warms to the idiosyncrasies of the other - despite the fact that the guy is a complete and utter moron incapable of anything resembling normal human interaction.
This has nothing in common with The Hangover, regardless of who was involved in its production. It has more in common with the classic, and much, much superior Planes, Trains, and Automobiles - which I immediately loaded in the DVD player after watching Due Date to get the bad taste out of my mouth.
My recommendation is to stay away from this and save yourself the frustration of watching it from beginning to end.
The Ten (2007)
Funny film for smart people
This will not be everyone's cup o' tea. If you are an avid fan of, oh I dunno, Adam Sandler or Wil Ferrel films, then you might want to steer clear of this one.
It basically consists of 10 disparate stories that actually intertwine. Each story loosely concerns one of the 10 Commandments. Introducing each "parable" is Paul Rudd's character, who is involved in a "parable" of his own.
The comedy ranges from the scatological to the ridiculous to the satirical. At times it is a groaner and other times downright laugh-out-loud funny.
Miami Vice (2006)
What a load...
Pretentious, slow, with about 5-10 minutes of total action in the film (a shooting scene at the beginning and one at the end), and at times totally incomprehensible (were they all mumbling, or was it just me).
I cannot believe idiot critics gave this an almost passing grade (see rottentomatoes.com). To the people who liked this movie, what was to like? The real cool visuals (I mean, get a freaking steady-cam!)? The bug-eyed stare of Colin Ferrel? The mumblings of Foxx? The leads swaggering walk ("oh man, that's so cool!"). The romance sub-plot that took place in Cuba (which felt like it went on for an hour!)? Really, what was good about this movie? Someone mention the visceral violence? What violence? For a cop film, there was decidedly little violence in this film.
This film could have been cut down to a 1 hour TV episode, and nothing would have been lost from it.
Dull, dull, dull...
Company Man (2000)
Funny and clever
A slapstick, stupid comedy for intelligent people. I was pleasantly surprised and recommend it to anyone who isn't so far into crap like The Fast and the Furious to enjoy a movie filled with outrageous satire and in-jokes. If you don't know your history, as it concerns Cuba, go back to munching popcorn and watching some tepid "action/adventure" flick.
