I was looking forward to seeing this movie for some time now, finally got to see it and it was really good. Incredibly heavy at times and lighter at other times to break up the tension and seriousness, the movie focus's on real life issues like depression, being in the closet, gay relationship issues, parental abandonment issues, suicide, and dysfunctional relationships within a straight marriage, the movie really did seem authentic, and was well done! Many people could relate to something going on in the story as nothing in life is perfect. Kristen Wiig seems to take on both roles quite well. A whole new respect for her. The on-screen chemistry between her and Bill was noticeable. Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell are also a great addition. I hope this movie gets a lot of attention and I would recommend it to anyone.
The follow-up wasn't anywhere near as good as the first one, although the first one wasn't awesome to begin with. It had a few raunchy laughs; mostly the Jennifer Aniston sex addiction parts but besides that it's not worth seeing really...which is unfortunate.
The Hunger Games franchise consistently stays on top of it's game, almost outdoing the movie before it each time! Mockingjay Part 1 is a departure from the first 2 which focus on fighting in the arena, this one is the aftermath of the games and an all our war. It's paced nicely being done in 2 movies, Mockingjay Part 1 and Mockingjay Part 2 which will end the franchise to go along with the books. Jennifer Lawrence is stellar as Katniss. All living characters return, Julianne Moore is a perfect addition! Lots of suspense and build up for the final chapter. Can't wait to see how it plays out.
The movie was mildly entertaining at best. Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels do have good chemistry together. The storyline was on a road trip and not overly interesting. It had some of the same jokes from 1994's original but didn't seem to come across as effective this time around, not sure if it's because the guys are 20 years older or due to a mediocre script. Unfortunately most of the jokes were tired, forced or redundant, especially with a running time of almost 2 hours. Laurie Holden played a decent role and looked immaculate. It's always hard to recreate a follow-up movie especially after 20 years. Not sure what i expected. They did revisit the old apartment and the blind bird guy.....and the shag van (for about 60 seconds). Overall it was ok but nothing great or memorable, or something I would need to watch again. 2.5/5
