Alright, some reviews on this 'motion picture' are a little rough, and thats fine because everyone is entitled to their own personal opinions. So/But i figured i'll put mine out there too, so everyone doesn't think this is a horrible movie not worth your time/money.
The directing/cinematogrophy. . .alright, the director wanted it to feel personal, and up close. Like a documentary. And he suceeded. You have alot of upclose shots of the characters, which works in this type of movie. its filmed in DV to give it that 'raw' feel, as the director said in the behind the scenes stuff. Also the camera's, if not always, are mostly hand held and a tiny bit shakey. But again, it works for this type of film.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays his part just. . he's perfect in it, so is Zooey, she's absolutely beautiful in her character. So with those two, the movies already worth watching, IMHO. Then you add the ward Doctor, Don Cheadie, he's just, amazing in this.
Yes, i know this is one of those reviews that sounds like i was paid by the director to write, but its not that way. I thought this movie was perfect, even the soundtrack was great. But hey, i'm just some guy, writing a review, on a movie i liked. This is all in my little humble opinion.
I say, if you read a bad review, or hear it from the critics, watch it anyway. you might just like it
Going Overboard (1989)
Not even listed
alright, i saw this at blockbuster, and i was like 'whoa, an adam sandler movie i haven't heard of' so i rented it, i watched it and, in the first 5 minutes you have adam telling you that its going to be a loosely thrown together movie with no budget at all. well, he's not lying. but the movie isn't that bad. i mean, it is adam's first movie, but i still find him enjoyable to watch, the 2 cuban terrorists are hilarious, and you even have Allen Covert as the bartender. . . . i mean allen and adam have apparently known each other for a LONG time.
anyway, the chase scene during the end will show you that. . . .well lets just say adams shirt changes from green to red, red to green. . . .back and forth during the chase scenes. Still, there's nothing wrong with that, i was expecting him to make a joke about it.
So if nothing else, watch this for adam, and the 2 cuban guys. No one else in the movie can act, and i think they did it that way on purpose.
I don't hate this movie at all, in fact, i own it, and i watched it again last night.
Billy Bob Thorton even makes an appearance, along with billy zane and as i said before, allen covert, who was probably unknown then.
but i do love allen covert. and adam. . .and seeing adam in his eaaaaarly days is refreshing.
So see this, at least once. Don't watch it expecting a very enjoyable sandler film. watch it expecting to see what you hear adam tell you your gonna see in the first 5 minutes.
to all those people who think this is just a HORRIBLE movie. . .well duh, it was MENT to be. adam tells you its gonna be.
Sadly, this move is NOT listed on adam sandler's websight. guess he's ashamed of it or something, i dunno why he would be, maybe cause of his shorts. . ..
anyway, be sure to check this out, but don't watch it in a serious fashion, be light hearted. . .
