Critics Consensus: Source Code Is Certified Fresh
This week at the movies, we've got a funny bunny (Hop, starring James Marsden and Russell Brand); identity intrigue (Source Code, starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Michelle Monaghan); and a juvenile ghoul (Insidious, starring Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne). What do the critics have to say? Recipe for a sci-fi thriller: take a sprig of Memento, a dash of Groundhog Day, and a pinch of Inception. Mix them together and you've got Source Code, which critics say is a smart, suspenseful popcorn flick with excellent performances. Easter's right around the corner, so it would seem like an ideal time for a family comedy about a bunny battling with an army of chicks for control of the holiday, right? Right?
