This movie is wholesome family fun. Just a big stupid fun adventure comedy that features Jack Black at his best. (Right up there with School of Rock) Some people might not find this kind of movie sophisticated enough, agreed it's juvenile and puerile, but it's also a bit charming and just darn fun for the family. It's ok to be a kid and watch fun movies with no other reason then escape, lighten up RT reviews. I think the people who spend their time praising Oscar nominated rubbish shouldn't stoop so low as to come here on RT to seriously rate Jack Black movies?? Go off to your elite film review soirees and leave the rest of us alone here in our basements, drinking light beer and cheering for Gulliver!!!. Well done Jack!
Has the world gone mad? How did this movie get so many good reviews and get listed on multiple websites as the Funniest movie of the year? There wasn't one humorous scene and I was eager to see an aging Buscemi playing a Russian politican. Steve, over here, remember when you put lipstick on in Billy Maddison and crossed Billy's name off your list? (CLASSIC!!!!! Go back to that kind of comedy) This Movie is fodder for elite socialite parties where Muffy and Brad boast how delightful a flick "Death of Stalin" was as well to do people "in the know" quip "pip pip, old chap" and the onlookers giggle with delight into their Tom Collins... Oh I can hear them now, "you just don't get it, it's too over your head, the comedy is too smart for you" huh? what? I actually laughed more watching Legends of the Fall then this travesty. Do not waste your time on this unfunny Russian themed bog wash. If the Shawshank Redemption is on your top Comedies list then you will really enjoy this fun romp! Muffy just take your top off. Ugh.... bye.
How did this get a 98 rating? I love racing. I love America. How did this film make use of both of these angles? By pairing 2 good actors with ridiculous accents in a movie that made me dump popcorn all over my head and blow on a trumpet for 2 hours in the corner. Christian Bale loves the fact that his bottom teeth don't fit in his mouth?? we get it, I'm happy for you, but that's not acting. And Matt Damon talking about 7000 RPM's (90MPH?) like he's Chuck Yeagar breaking the sound barrier is so over the top. Plus this type of enduro racing is not easy to translate on screen. The wear and tear on the driver, the wear and tear on the hardware, it's about pushing to the limit where things should break but they don't. This racing actually takes 24 hours in real life for a reason, I get that it is hard to make exciting for people that don't "Get it" - So what does this movie do? (here comes the Hollywood execs) Every time a race car goes off the road it immediately explodes, bursting into flames... A Flat tire = bomb explosion, And now I'm making popcorn snow angels in a fetal position. Come on guys. The movie is about big business "Committees" getting out of the way of the true individual "Experts" and letting the people who know what they are doing "Win the race" - Why didn't you make this movie with the same philosophey? Popcorn ruined, trumpet time over. Need a warm blanket. Thanks a lot.
Why have you done this?
If you are a Tom Hardy fan you will like this movie. Tom convincingly plays two characters (twin brothers). You get familiar with both of the brother's personalities and it doesn't feel like you are watching the same actor play across from himself, think opposite result of Michael Keaton in Multiplicity. Add in a bunch of Cockney slang (ALA Peaky Blinders) and some really entertaining gangster violence for laughs. It's a very classy and fun movie.
