Is This Too Much To Ask?
24 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Is it my home theater or the cast really are whispering? I barely heard the words they're saying. So I wasn't quite sure if I get this movie. I checked wiki and suddenly I felt enlightened.

Reading the synopsis makes this movie looks so good. However I didn't really feel that way last night. And I couldn't stand watching Orlando's bangs. So weird because they ruin my Legolas' image. And so with all the doctors and the staffs. They're having too much "fun" at the hospital, giving the negative image to the hospital. Like they're playing around and not serious about their job. Martin's is the only one is good but slowly becoming crazy.

One thing that seems implausible to me about the story. When Mrs. Nixon wants to thank Martin for taking a very good care of her daughter by giving him a present. But she doesn't have time to send it so she invites Martin to her house only to get the present. It's weird. She can deliver it by package service, right? I know why it is made like this because it has something to do with Martin's next move. But please... Give me something more plausible. Is this too much to ask?
