There are no words to express how awful this film was. To illustrate just how nonsensical the plot of this film really is without spoiling too much, let me just reveal that the heroes at one point have their plans thwarted by-I kid you not-A PARKING VIOLATION, and it just keeps getting worse from there. I'm thankful that I at least didn't pay for my ticket, but I'll never get that two and a half hours of my life back.
Being a latter-day saint myself, I wanted to like this movie, but I couldn't. In fact, I found it sort of an embarrassment.
the concept had potential, but I didn't like anything about this film. I was so annoyed by these neurotic parents trying to impress the neighbors with their perfect kid that required no effort on their part to raise, that by the end of the movie I didn't even care what happened.
At several points in the movie I found myself practically begging this husband and wife to just shut up and get over themselves!
Spoiler - this movie is not about the couple learning that it's pointless to use your kid to impress people. Rather, it almost seems to endear the notion. It was like the kid shows up just to gives the neighbors what for, then, once they're sufficiently impressed, he goes away. Blah.
I can't recommend this one to anyone.
When I first heard the concept for this film, I really wanted to hate it, but after seeing it, I really can't. Granted, I miss the journey of self-discovery that made the Bourne trilogy a hit, but while Aaron Cross' journey for survival seems a little more dumbed-down, everything still made sense and made for a solid movie. My only complaints: the beginning sort of throws you into the middle of it all and takes a while to make any sense. The ending is nonexistent. There was not a shred of even partial closure. I know they want to keep this open for another movie, but could we at least feel like SOMETHING was accomplished?
