David Norris(Matt Damon)discovers that his fate is signed,sealed, and about to be delivered until he decides to try to change it in this sci-fi thriller based on a Philip Dick story. Emily Blunt is his love interest who may divert him from a promising political career and Terence Stamp and Anthony Mackie are members of a mysterious secret society who ensure that all individuals follow their fated path. The material here has much potential but the screenplay lacks the tension and suspense one would expect from this genre.
Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis are two 30-somethings who are not yet appreciating the promise of marriage and worry they have missed out on the joys of bachelorhood in this latest Farrelly Brothers comedy. The first two-thirds of this film is very funny with some laugh out loud moments, but it predictably degenerates into a conventional final act and a neatly crafted ending. Men with a strong adolescent streak will get a kick out of the effort though.
Seth Rogen and Jay Chou are a dynamic duo in this unexpectedly rousing action film about the ambivalent son of an influential newspaper editor and heir to his fortune who becomes an unlikely crime fighter. Seth Rogen does his usual sctick, appealing to some and annoying to others, and Jay Chou delivers an interesting straight man that complements Rogen's zaniness. Throw in the beautiful Cameron Diaz and Ghostbuster's director Michel Gondry and you end up with some terrific popcorn fun.
Ed Helms is a salesman thrown into the lion's den at an insurance convention where he has to compete for a coveted industry award. A Sundance export, Miguel Arteta's smartly written film is a wonderfully offbeat effort with a rich mix of quirky characters that come to rely on each other in surprising and endearing ways. John C. Reilly is pivotal as Dean Ziegler, a comic Bill Murray, who keeps the laughter going throughout. A small gem!
Lightning does strike twice as Liam Neeson(Taken)once again stars in a terrific action piece in which he plays a professor who suffers an accident that separates him from his wife in Paris and later discovers that she no longer knows him, his identity has been erased, and he is targeted for murder by a shadow organization. Mr. Neeson is a really good player in this genre and the film is watchable and exciting throughout. Suspend incredulity, fasten your seatbelt, and enjoy the ride!
