Not as good as the original, sadly, it just seems to lack that something special that makes the first Fletch seem so effortless. Perhaps the change of setting was a mistake - making Fletch a fish out of water deprives us of the enjoyment of watching him work every situation to his advantage and approach everything as though he's encountered it a thousand times. A couple laughs but mostly a disappointment.
A movie that is, I think, worse than the sum of its parts. I like most of the principal cast and certainly respect Guy Ritchie's potential, but this quickly careened out of control and mutated into some Hollywood CG-enhanced actionfest. Had it been a little less ostentatious I think it would have made for a good movie, though not the blockbuster it was.
I mean, it's a really impressive technological achievement and every cinematic element of the film is executed well. The 3D is incredible, the scope is epic and the action is well choreographed - but it's a story we've heard a million times before and kind of a laughable romance. So I've seen it twice now, and I really only needed to see it once. Still a must see, just for cultural relevance.
A little uneven to begin but really hits its stride once they hit Hollywood. By that point the characters have started to connect (though Eisenberg's acting is surprisingly clumsy) and the screenplay's amateurish narration is less overbearing. Becomes quite funny and almost-successfully touching, though it's no Shaun of the Dead.
Not one of the better Star Trek movies but still worthwhile for the return of Captain Kirk. The huge leaps of logic necessary to enjoy it and the exponentially rushed pacing really do it in, at the end of the day.
