Ollie: "Cats" is the second worst thing that ever happened to New York City.
What can I say, I am biased towards liking Smith's movies. It's not part of the View Askewneverse and Jason Biggs is for some reason involved, but I liked it. I think everyone does a good job here and I enjoy watching it.
Ben Affleck was a big player in New York, until his wife, Jennifer Lopez, dies during child birth, eventually resulting in Affleck moving back to Jersey to live with his father, George Carlin, and raise his daughter.
Years later, he must struggle with trying to find another job in New York while also raising his daughter. He has also just met a local girl, Liv Tyler, who takes a liking to this duo.
If there is any problem with this movie, its that it eventually follows a familiar formula. Its not a bad thing, but it doesn't make the movie stand out too much. It does help that there are a number of scenes that show off Smith's talent for dialog. It also helps that the girl playing Affleck's daughter is very good, especially for a young child actor, and not in an annoying cute way either.
Overall its decent and enjoyable, but Smith should stick in R rated territory.
Ollie: Isn't that cute? It's 8 o'clock and you both get a bottle.
