Did You Know?


Many supporting actors and background talented noted how Sandra Bullock kept forgetting her lines. See more »


To emphasize the point of the problematic German author of the quote provided to Pat, some Mariachis sing at his hotel door. This is the 3rd verse of the 'Deutschlandlied', the national anthem of the Federal Republic of Germany. The notorious 1st verse ("Deutschland, Deutschland über alles") favored in the 3rd Reich would have been more fitting to the quote's author. See more »

Jane: Who are my heroes? Well, when I first started in this business, my heroes were politicians and leaders. And then I met them.

Our Brand is Bland.
31 October 2015 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

Definitely does not live up to it's cool title.

It had potential, coming out at the right time when people are gearing up for a big election. It's that type of comedy that is suppose to be funny up till that dramatic life changing moment, but the movie is to uninteresting to be funny.

Sandra Bullock plays a political strategist who gets back on the horse after years away in order to help a politician win a presidential campaign in his Latin American country.

I think Bullock's character is suppose to go through some soul searching event that is not clear to the point in a movie that's to boring to look for it.

Billy Bob Thornton was the best part of the movie. Our Brand is Crisis is suppose to be a vehicle for Bullock, but Thornton steels the show. It does not help that some of the other characters in the movie seem useless. Like I'm still trying to figure out what Antony Mackie's purpose in the movie was other than people like Antony Mackie.

It feels like the movie was having a hard time picking weather they were going to be a political drama or a political comedy, and trying to be both made it neither.

Skip this one.
