Griffin: This is my new favorite moment in human history! Unless this is the one where K forgot to leave a tip... [he looks over to K's tip-less plate, then looks up. We see a meteorite heading for Earth]
Agent K: [re-enters, and leaves a tip. He looks to Griffin] Almost forgot.
Griffin: [the meteorite is intercepted by a satellite. Griffin looks to the camera] That was a close one!
I do not know why people are so enthralled in this movie. I found it bogged down with unlikable characters, a cliched plot and an ending revelation that wastes time for Courtney and Mitch's characters to develop.
This is easily the most overrated movie of 2012. It wasn't the worst movie I've seen (animation and acting was OK, villain looked amazing) but it is not, by ANY stretch of ANYone's imagination, a good movie. See it at your own peril.
I have seen movies that were good. Movies that were great. Truly exceptional. Pure brilliance. The Artist surpasses all of these, and reaches a level all its own, but the amazing thing is that it doesn't do anything fancy along the way. It's pure Hollywood magic, something many, many movies these days lack...
