Double Take Reviews
(hay critics) Fuck you!
*sigh* Fine. As gratifying as that was, I guess I could stand to write a bit more. I am starting to believe I truly don't understand the movie biz as much as I thought I did. It seems like everytime I go to review one of my favorite movies (excluding something obvious like Pupl Fiction) it has an absolutely dreadful rating. What am I missing? I thought, if you truly enjoy a movie, even if it is flawed you could at least rate it over %50 so it would at least be marginally fresh. Then I go to rate "Double Take", and it's at %12 Rotten. Clearly, I don't understand Hollywood or it's critics.
To be blunt, this is maybe my favorite comedy of all time. It's hard to rank it, really, since I also love "Anchorman", "Eurotrip", and all the "Bring It On" movies (if those count!). Also, some would probably say "Van Helsing" was comedy (get real, that movie is prtty cool).
But I digress. I absolutely love this movie. The script is decent, but what makes it so great is the luminosity of it's comedic actors. Orlando & Eddie are fabulous together. If only this movie had a sequel! Alas, with a rating of %12 and a total of 3 Facebook "likes" (including mine!), obviously no chance. This movie is a ton of fun. Who cares if the plot doesn't nescessarily come together perfectly. It's still a damn fun movie with lines that I even quote sometimes.
"The Black Rogue. You jussa rooogue." or "That's okay, I'll just throw a bullet at'cha!" or "Leprechaun Pimp" lololol.
So to reiterate: critics of this movie, whoever you are:
Fuck you. That is all.
[u]Director[/u]: George Gallo
[u]The skinny[/u]: [size=1][size=2]DOUBLE TAKE opens in Hitchcock fashion with a Manhattan businessman finding himself on the run; He is suspected of illegal activities, and has to prove his innocence while being pursued by the authorities.[/size] [/size]
[u]My view[/u]: This movie never received the publicity or credit it truely deserved. This movie is a little difficult to follow, but the writter has done his homework on how investments and securities work. Orlando Jones and Eddie Griffin team up well together and the scripting and camera work accent the movie nicely. This is a movie that you can watch again and again, and shouldn't be too vulgar for the kids.
[u]Notable[/u]: This is a movie that you'll probably have to watch more than once. In a short time a lot happens that can confuse the audience. In the end if you haven't picked up on some key items of the plot you probably wont like this movie.
