Going the Distance (2010)
too annoying and not funny
and cliché after cliché: 1. the obligatory, not funny guy friends of Justin's character 2. toilet humor (his roommate wanting to keep the door open while he was on toilet, whatever, not funny) 3. the over-acted/bitchy/disapproving/overbearing sister character played by Christina Applegate (just watch K. Heigl's sister character in "Knocked Up", much better and believable)and the whipped husband 4. two words: "Mia! Statue!" whatever, not funny, and what a stupid way to end a movie 5. overall, just like the summary says: too annoying and not funny at all. watch "forgetting sarah marshall" for some seriously unique laughs and even some believability (for this genre).
Haute tension (2003)
eerily similar to book "Intensity"
A few years ago, I read a book by Dean Koontz--"Intensity." I know this movie is not based on the book, but the set up is strangely similar...a girl goes to a country house with her friend for the weekend...a killer gets into the house..murders the family, but she gets away, yet is led on a very crazy 24 hour fight for her life. There is even a gas station scene, very similar. As soon as the gas station scene started to develop in the movie, I predicted it where it was heading! But from there the book is quite different from this movie..but it DID make me wonder.... BTW, if you liked this movie, then read "Intensity." Also, if anyone else is aware of the similarities, let me know!
