I'm a huge fan of the original, and despite the bad reviews, I still wanted to see it for nostalgia sake (also I had a free pass) there are some funny moments for sure where i laughed out loud, and it was fun just seeing these characters in a movie again. However there definitely aren't as many laughs as in the original, at times it gets pretty mean, and some gross out gags go over the top (tho i suppose so did the original) I did like the girl that played penny, harrys daughter, she was pretty good, overall its pretty much just a repeat of the original plot, if you're a big fan of the original id say rent it, or just see it somehow without paying
Despite looking like a cheesy B movie, i was surprised by how well done it was, the story is good, and you dont even see the CHUDs till almost halfway through, the acting is pretty good too, with somewhat big names like john heard and daniel stern, not a classic by any means, but an enjoyable way to kill some time
Really well done political comedy, that also skewers the hollywood system, mamet wrote a great script filled with several great passages of dialogue, levinson keeps everything moving at a fast pace, the movie goes by so quickly and never gets confusing despite all the different pieces moving, and then hoffman and deniro are great together, both very smart coming up with all these ideas as another thing goes wrong, even tho theyre lying to the public, youre still rooting for them to win, and they develop a real friendship over the course of the movie, really good stuff
I've always been fascinated by the life of stephen hawking, and everything he was able to accomplish while being incapacitated. So I was def interested in seeing this. It's a standard biopic, hitting all the usual beats, but has 2 really good performances from raymayne, who is impressive with all the way he contorts his body and speech, and jones, who ive always liked and is just very strong, and has a bright personality. It's quite tough to watch some of the scenes of his body collapsing, and heart breaking him not being able to touch his children. Charlie Cox is really good as family friend Jonathan. I def recommend for those interested in hawkings life
