CONS: The ending was unsatisfying and left us wanting more, which is typically a good tactic for the production of a sequel. However, the plot left no room for a sequel and the film was a flop, so here I sit, unsatisfied. PROS: Lots of dark humor and offensive jokes throughout the movie. The plotline was well thought out, and was executed fairly well. Largest pro of the whole movie was getting to see Matthew Broderick on MDMA. ð???ð??»
A conpulsive gambler escapes his wife and goes to Las Vegas where he meets his daughter Amanda working as a prostitute and attempts to rescue her, while she doesn't want to be rescued. Nobody becomes a better man in the process, but the audience gets its laughs.
well I thought this might b a romantic rom-com but what I got was a black comedy in which broderick in his everyman hang dog put upon ( think "election") as an uncle with a lot of issues who goes to vegas to find his niece and bring her back 2 LA to put her in rehab.
Finding Amanda didn't nearly get enough credit as it should have. I will say that it's not the best film that i've seen, but for what it is, it's descent. Broderick & Snow have some good dialogue together, & they work when they act together. Finding Amanda has a great plot & great premise but sometimes it can't quite pull off those type of things that it should've. It's good but not great.
I thought, "Oh, Broderick and Snow, this movie will at least be entertaining." I wouldn't necessarily go that far although I did actually finish the movie. It was banal and ridiculous--and I don't mean that in my "ridiculous is awesome" way. It's one of those movies you can skip and never feel bad about never seeing.
While the trailer for the film looks really good, the film itself disappoints. The film needed a major rewrite. There was a few funny scenes in the film. Matthew Broderick, Maura Tierney, and Brittany Snow were wasted in this film. The best thing in the film is Steve Coogan. He is hilarious in ever scene that he is in. He steals the film.
Decent black comedy about people with vices, how aware they are of them and how they deal with them in their everyday lives. This movie is a good study of the flawed side of human nature, and leaves itself open-ended for its audience to interpret and relate to.
