Unreached potential
I like sci-fi stuff like this; when extraordinary things happen to ordinary people...but this one just seemed a little too morbid at times and a little to slow at other times. It started out good but never reached the potential that its premise promised.
Although it didn't get much critical acclaim, I thought this was a fun little movie with a nice twist. One of Mr. Shyamalan's better efforts.
Nice hats
Is our destiny pre-ordained? Who are the guys with the hats? Why can't Matt Damon become president and have the girl of his dreams too? This movie has more questions than answers and that's not always a bad thing.
Thumbs up.
Movies about Cedar Rapids should stay in Cedar Rapids. Cedar Rapids makes Vegas look like the Vatican. I have nothing against movies about amoral people so long as they make me laugh. These folks didn't.
This far-fetched Lifetime channel-ish flick quickly drifts into monotony. Although I found myself rooting for him during the last half hour of this tedious marathon, I didn't really care too much about the Russell Crowe character or his incarcerated wife. The movie didn't make me care because she wasn't shown as having a hard time in prison or being too inconvenienced. Because I stayed awake Ill give this one a C+.
