This isn't great cinema, or even a movie you'll remember four hours later, but as stupid thrill rides go, it's smart enough to show you a good time.
A movie has to be memorable in order to be recommendable. In times like these, you shouldn't tell people to throw away ten dollars on a film they will never think about after seeing.

I don't think it does, sometimes you just want a fun film to occupy an afternoon, and I think CLOD fits the bill well enough, besides it's hard to completely hate a film that has both Weaver and Willis in it.

I hated this movie, and it happened to have Weaver and Willis in it. A good cast does not a good film make. To tell people that in tough times like these, it would be a good idea to throw away ten or twenty dollars to see a forgettable movie just doesn't make much sense. I respect contratian opinions. However, there are still plenty of great movies that are memorable that are still in theaters. "Marvel's The Avengers", "The Dark Knight Rises", "Moonrise Kingdom", "Beasts of the Southern Wild", "Compliance", "Farewell, My Queen", "Ted", "ParaNorman", and "Hope Springs" all immediately come to mind.

Meh, Hope Springs sucked, now THAT was a waste of a good cast, very dissapointing performances.

The film as an acronym spells "clod."
That makes WAY too much sense.

I agree with Alonso, and I didn't go in expecting a truly great movie in the first place, which helps. As Alonso points out, it was an entertaining, if somewhat predictable thrill ride. My advice is not to go out of your way to see the movie, "The Cold Light of Day", but if friends wanna go, as was my case, it's O.K. and just that.
