Implausible. That's all I kept thinking while watching this movie. Ridiculous was another. The action was okay, I guess, but hardly innovative. The plot was full of holes.
The only good thing in the movie was some of the dialog about couples. It rang pretty true, like the scene where Pitt asks Jolie to turn off the lights and she says 5 more minutes.
But beyond this it wasn't my cup of tea!
she is sooooooooooooooo hot, that I couldn't really concentrate on the movie / plot / dialogue etc.
ps. Pitt ain't too shabby either!
A big fat MEH.
It wasn't a kitsch cliche as True Lies, which at least had that "PLONT-esque"ness to it. I just couldn't buy the fact that these two would exist. Expect me to suspend my disbelief that super-spies are invincible, at least provide them with some flaws...
I find Angelina Jolie now has become a living parody of herself...I mean, I wonder what it must be like to have sex with this woman? When she does do the nasty, does she SLAM up against a wall and writhe in erotic blood-lust? She's (if you can imagine the word) OVER-sexy....?
But me and the missus DID have a good time watching it only for the fact that it sparked a GREAT debate over which one of us would be able to kill the other first....
My money's on the ball-and-chain, there, Mikey. Hands down. You wouldn't even see it coming. She be like, in the kitchen, chopping vegetables for the kiddies' dinner, and you'd come home, tired from a day's work, turn around from closing the door and KCHUNK!! the kitchen knife is in your throat.
"Don't get any blood on the floor," would be the last words you heard from your beloved wife...
LOL. You're one sick bastard, Suavey!
LOL I did a search for 'sick bastard' and THIS came up! It looks EXACTLY like my brother's dog, Milo!
Sick, maybe, but TELL ME I'M WRONG.
You can't, can you. No.
No one can.
I DO have a brain, I can defend myself...I have a green belt in Karate! I'm no spring chicken and....oh, who am I kidding?
I'm a (fictionally pseudo) dead man.
Dead as, well.....THESE GUYS
Do de dooo...
Dum de dum...
Double True !!
Good come-back...bravo (golf clap)
Your hotlinking skills parallel your skills with the blade.
"Problems displaying the picture" INDEED!
Go Sens Go!
"Hi I'm Mikey and I slept with Zdeno Chara last night. It was the greatest moment of my life! His hand hurts because it was up my ass"
True story !
I'd just like to point out that Chara was quite the gentleman, bought me a nice dinner and several glasses of QUALITY Chardonnay before I let him stick his injured hand up my ass, thank-you-very-much.
But I'd rather be Z-Man's man-whore than YOUR questionable choice of Space-Docking partner:
He showed me his "happy little tree" if you know what I mean (nudge, nudge, wink, wink)
Anyways, finally got around to seeing this (face it, I'm gonna have time to getting around and seeing everything now...) and it was better than I thought it would be. I thought Pitt and Jolie had good chemistry, and the story (though ludicrous) was at least cute amd entertaining for a while. Vince Vaughn was his usual smarmy funny self too. My big complaint was with the ending.
They gun their way out of a Home Hardware store (in a ridiculously choreographed scene) and a few more words in therapy and that's it??
Didn't explain at all how they got away from the spy agencies, where they ran off to, whether or not they live on the run, etc.... I mean, I guess we assume they stick together and work out a system of survival, but this was more a light-hearted spy-comedy than a serious thriller. A bit of a wrap-up is expected. Even 'Spy Kids' gave us that!
I have to parrot Mitch's review exactly.
a) Funny thread.
b) Mildly amusing, but ended very oddly. Huge plot holes.
I have to say that while this movie LOOKED great (i.e., it is hard to take one's eyes off of Ms. Jolie), I didn't feel there was much chemistry between the two leads, despite that in reality, this was the movie where Angie and Brad became Brangelina, leaving that delightful Ms. Anniston alone to star on the cover of tabloid magazines...
All in all, a very MEH experience.
(Just glad I didn't pay to watch this... borrowed it from a friend...)
