Mr. Brooks Reviews
One could classify this film as a black comedy like Harold and Maude. The only bona fide comedian in the cast is Dane Cook but suprisingly, he plays his role very straight. The tongue-in-cheek performance of Costner is good, while Hurt shines as the self-deprecating and saracastic alter-ego of Brooks. Demi Moore okay but her character didn't have the layers of some of the other characters. On second viewing I found myself reacting to the dead-pan almost British humor moreso than the "shock" scenes. The conclusion comes with too many clever twists but still entertaining.
