Jumpin' Jack Flash Reviews
"Earl, look at this face. This is the face of a woman on the edge." "I know, my wife has that same face."
(Full review coming soon - with better wording)
PLOT:Terry (Whoopi Goldberg) is an average*ahemNOWAY* bank terminal worker with an asshole boss and a crazy work family. One day when she's about to leave, she recieves a message from a person who calls himself Jumpin' Jack Flash and he asks her to get a code key to talk to him. That's as much as I will reveal because it's a wild, unpredictable plot, but it is obvious, this being a classic mystery-comedy, he's a spy. The plot's basic but LAID with twists and turns to shock and fill with laughter. It's executed excellently.
ACTING:Most all acting was very good, but one actor was just annoying even if she did play the part well and that was Carol Kane as Cynthia. Watch and you'l lsee what I mean!
SCORE:The score was very mezmerizing and mysterious. Well done to Thomas Newman, who's style I enjoy. The soundtrack was pretty neat to and included a rockin' version of "Jumpin' Jack Flash" by Aretha Franklin with Keith Richards still on guitar! I always jam out to that.
OTHER CONTENT:Besides HER acting, the only other flaw I can find is that the acting and comedy can get very crude, whic makes it a little wrong and imperfect. But I, with my twisted sense of humor, love it. I also liked how computers were used in the movie. Very cool.
OVERALL,it's a great comedy-mystery with an unpredictable plot, great acting (minus one), mezmerizing score, and crude jokes. But I love the crude jokes.
