Critic Reviews for Esto es un Robo
Screenwriter Joe Wein has smartly wired these three bizarre personal stories into a raucously satisfying triumph of good over evil.
The comedy is extremely broad and there's a slight air of desperation to the whole thing, as if the film is trying too hard to be quirky and likeable.
It feels completely pointless, despite some entertaining sequences and gifted performers.
The word 'quirky' should be stricken from the English language if Hollywood doesn't stop churning out comedic romps that try too hard.
Audience Reviews for Esto es un Robo
Shmally: You wanna jack with the ripper?
"To break out... You gotta break in"
Although not as clever as it tries to be and not as funny as it needs to be Scorched is still pretty entertaining. In the end though, it's just not enough. The cast should be great, but only one character is all that interesting and that's Rachael Leigh Cook's. Every other character was either extremely dull or extremely over the top.
This is the type of movie we get when a Tarantino wannabe think he finally has a great idea. It's pretty easy to tell throughout this movie that the written (Joe Wein) and the director(Gavin Grazer) think their material is pretty smart. In reality they fail to pull all the characters and their stories together. The movie has a few decent ideas, a few good scenes and a few good actors. But the movie ends up being a below average comedy.
Rachael Leigh Cook is a reason to watch this movie though. She's a decent actress who isn't in enough movies; so whenever I come across a movie with her in it, I'll normally watch it. Woody Harrelson is completely wasted throughout the whole movie. John Cleese's character is too over the top. The movie has a lot of problems. Most of which come from the writing.
Fun in a PG13 kinda way. In other words, they got off way too easy.
This was an entertaining movie I thought. I always try to grasp at what the directors and Producers were trying to say in their creation of a movie. This one show's two seprit groups of people and their grasping to take what belongs to others so they can grasp that easy street that we all look for when buying a lottery ticket. It's really a funny movie and could also some up an inside cult of the worship of the sun my things I picked just in the songs that were chosen for this movie. I recommend this movie as a good entertaining movie and worth the watch.
