I expected to dislike this film & while it's not a great movie there were a couple of good laughs. Robin Williams is back to his old charming self as the father who takes his family on the wildest RV holiday ever. Predictably it brings them together but Jeff Daniels & family add a touch of randomness as does Williams' form of comedy. I actually enjoyed it.
Not a big fan of either of these two actresses, although I have liked some of Jamie Lee Curtis' other stuff, but this was actually a little better than I thought it would be. I thought it would be complete & utter crap but surprisingly it's watchable as the two have to put up with a day living in each others world, oh yeah & body. Some of the moments at school are a little funny even.
Great effects from Wolfgang Petersen, of course, & maybe even a more believable storyline but it's still just a disaster movie. New Years Eve on a giant cruise ship toppled by a giant wave with a handful of people trying to escape. I enjoyed it though as Petersen keeps up the pace nicely.
I guess that this is the pilot for the new TV series. Kitt is back but it's a new updated version - I don't think he is quite as sarcastic as I remember the original Kitt being. The car is great to watch especially the morphing effect, as for the humans, it was ok but nothing to rave about. There is a new driver for a new world, even the Hoff gets a look in.
A very strange film, it's a bit like watching a documentary in which we are never really told what is going on. Two young men seem to build a machine that allows them to travel in time, but it seems that there is a little side effect that is never fully explained, as each time they travel, they create other selves that they have to set out to avoid, or to miss them altogether by travelling back further each time. (At least I think that's what is happening). Low budget film that is hard to take your eyes off.
