Watching Baruchel and Quaid is the payoff in Real Time. But the repetitive, occasionally banal script lets them down.
The actors are good, but the dialogue only mediocre, leaning toward a kind of exasperated kookiness.
...the movie's final half hour [is] affecting and involving in ways that one might not have initially anticipated.
With good actors like Baruchel and Quaid, Real Time, have an involving screenplay and a interesting direction, dispite the plot aren't original and the situation of both principal characters remind the three of The Last Detail, which Quaid act and win a Oscar nomination. Anyway, this film is entertaining, funny and moving, showing to the audience different actors of different genarations, but that have a good chemistry in the screen and surprise anyone, by the way is a original duo, that I never thing before: Baruchel and Quaid. The tension coming up to the climax and presents a unexpected end. Real Time is a good exemple of new art film that edge between comedy and drama. Fresh.
Great acting. The dialogue was interestingly written, but often unbelievable and written like a stage play. Randy Quaid's hitman character broke the lovable comic oafish type he normally plays (eg. Vacation movies, ID4, Quick Change). I appreciated the kid's losing streak throughout the story, when trying to escape his predicament. I watched eagerly to see what would happen when the hour ran out. I hate endings like that and didn't buy it, even though many of the events in the movie supported the resolution. Overall, interesting character piece.
A really, really black comedy...that has an ending you will not expect. I adore Jay Baruchel, probably the reason I was intrigued enough to see what this was. Could have been better, but altogether a pretty eye-opening film.
BEST PART EVER.
