Breaking In (2011)
Laugh Out Loud Funny
Not sure what the reviewer who gave this show one star was watching. I like Jack Nicholson, and other than having similarly shaped eyebrows, Slater has his own unique style.
The pilot was clever and the dialogue rapid-fire. Was the plot "silly"? Well, maybe. But what else should we expect from a 30-minute comedy that is produced by Adam Sandler? This show is a great addition to our list of favorites that include Leverage (which, by the way, has a great cast) and Psych.
This show wins on many levels. The concept of criminal masterminds is not original, but having it done in a 30-minute comedy is genius! This show has LOT's of potential. Looking forward to seeing more!!

Something New For A Change
This is a creative and imaginative story line. So far, there is also the absence of the droll, overused idea that aliens planted things and are now watching us like some sort of big lab experiment. As the story unfolds, lets hope that nothing pops out of anyones stomach. Its actually interesting that the writers are giving the credit for these items to God.
While the story line is an attention grabber, the acting is just so-so. The lead character does a good job, but most others seem stiff and over-rehearsed. And, some scenes are just a little too hard to digest, pulling the viewer back into reality -- like how many times can one fall out of the sky onto hard pavement and survive? There is also an element of familiarity between the little girl and Dakota Fanning, who has been very successful in pulling off the big-eyed, innocent parts.
All in all, this show is worth watching.
I am rarely moved to go out and find the DVD of a film I've just seen, however, I will be buying this one. Like many other commenter's, I stumbled across this work of art while channel surfing (I missed the first 20 minutes or so), and was immediately captivated.
The movie is ROTFL funny (the 'jazz-off'), moving (the girl, the music), and insightful. Tim Roth was inspiring as was the music which absolutely deserved the Golden Globe Best Score. Tornatore succeeded in drawing me into the life of this ship and the heart of this gentle and charming man. To all who gave this film to us who live beyond the 88 keys... well done!
