Part porno, part rape fantasy, part Stockholm Syndrome. I rarely think, "oh no, this movie needs a huge disclaimer before anyone under 25 sees it", but this movie is trashy scary in all the worst ways
Do I like this movie? ALOT! Would I like this movie if I saw it for the first time today? Unlikely. This is a great movie to watch with the entire family, but more so if you saw this yourself as a kid. This movie plays very dated by today's standards. The cast has really great chemistry, and it has a huge nostalgia factor if you are of a certain age, but unless you are watching with really small children, you will find yourself looking for the remote pretty quickly.
Acting saves this otherwise slow romantic "comedy". You can tell that Salma Hayek and Matthew Perry are really trying to make the movie work, and have a nice, believable chemistry, but are struggling with a script that is underwhelming. It's a good watch on a lazy Sunday, but not a movie you are going to rush to tell you friends about. It's sweet, but you feel like outside of the acting, it's amateur hour.
If you like Rush Hour, just consider this a prequel. Chris Tucker is the real star here, who will keep you laughing on par with Sandler or Carey. The story is ridiculous, but just sit back and enjoy it. Even Heather Locklear's comedic chops are evident. Charlie Sheen's character is forgettable, but necessary to move the plot along. Hopefully you will give this movie a chance.
the problem here is not Chan or Tucker. They obviously wanted some nice paychecks, but apparently there wasn't enough money leftover for a script.
