I wasn't expecting to like Max - it's the story of a military-trained dog that is shipped back to America after his handler is killed in action - but it's surprisingly enjoyable.
Cartoony romp has a slick surface but not much underneath. What it does have are three charming actors who work hard to buoy it with their personality and charisma. Tom Hardy and Chris Pine work well together actually their chemistry with each other is much stronger- than either share with their female co-star. Reese is ditzy and sweet but who ever was in charge of her hair should be ashamed, it looks distractingly like straw. The director's roots in music videos are painfully obvious and he does nothing to smooth out the many kinks in the borderline creepy plot. Wasted in nothing parts are Til Schweiger a good actor stuck in a standard villain part that must have been larger in the original script and Angela Bassett, a great actress in a stick figure part that is so far beneath her abilities it's a crying shame. Silly and painless you'll forget it as soon as it's over. All involved have made better films and will again.
They're too old for this shift. Hilarious 21 Jump Street is incredibly funny. So far this years funniest film. I laughed full time throughout the movie. This is the type of movie that after you watch it you constantly keep quoting the lines, because they stick to you like glue. Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) are two underachieving cops. After ruining an operation, both of them are sent to 21 Jump Street, where they are assigned to infiltrate and go back into high school to bring down a new group of drug dealers that have invented a new synthetic drug. Like Captain Dickson (Cube) says, "Your assignment is simple: infiltrate the dealers, find the supplier. " Turns out things aren't so simple. Remember how annoying it got when kids after watching Superbad or Step Brothers constantly kept quoting lines from the movie? Well get ready because 21 Jump Street will have the same effect. The movie is fast paced, smart, action packed, and humorous. I simply loved this movie. This is only the second movie, out of 4 that I have seen by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, and I have to say these guys are genius. They are able to bring back a comedy that doesn't have to be R-rated and dirty. These guys are young and they know what they are doing, and although its not their original idea - considering the movie comes from an old tv show starring Johnny Depp, Lord and Miller still kick-ass. As for the actors in 21 Jump Street, Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, they work well together. They contrast each other well and don't steel each others spotlight, and I know that's hard considering we have a comedy actor (Hill) and a ladiesman actor (Tatum), but both of these actors have a natural bond worth noting. At first I was afraid of Tatum taking this role, but he totally made me shut up, he really blasted it! Overall their chemistry was fantastic. Plus we have Ice Cube, Rob Riggle and Dave Franco that were fantastic. The cast was great overall. Honestly this movie blew me away. I loved how they made fun of everything including themselves. The plot might be silly but it's well grounded and fast paced. The movie never dragged, it made me laugh all the time. I say you should go see it because it is not just a good cop comedy, but a good action film too. Captain Dickson: Hey! Hey! Stop fuckin with korean jesus. he aint got time for your problems, hes busy with korean shit!
A sex addict finds his routine disrupted when his irresponsible and unstable sister comes to
live with him. Falls into the same trap as many "serious" movies about sex; it makes the surroundings dull, dreary and dour so that we can't enjoy the rutting scenes, or will feel guilty if we do. But nothing in this sex addict's life looks authentically empty; his lifestyle actually looks like a lot of fun, and he'd probably enjoy it if the director would stop playing such depressing music during the threesomes.
