Solaris

Posted in movies with tags , , , , , , , , on February 8, 2011 by Parker Connell

I am starting a new tradition for movie fans. I think of it a bit like a pilgrimage one might make if they were religious, you know if your religion was based around good movies, which mine is. This filmgrimage is called Soderweek and this is how you go about accomplishing it. For seven days you must watch as many Steven Soderbergh films as you can. They don’t have to be the only movies you watch, but they should make up the majority of them for those seven days. The other rule of Soderweek is that you must watch at least 2 Steven Soderbergh films that you have never seen before. If for some reason you have already seen all of Steven Soderbergh’s films (which I find unlikely unless you are in fact Steven Soderbergh, in which case hello Mr. Soderbergh I really enjoyed The Informant, and I hope those rumors about you retiring soon are false.) you have to get a friend (or enemy) to watch 2 Soderbergh films with you that they have not seen. The most exciting part about Soderweek, like any religious pilgrimage, is that it is a wholly personal experience; you choose the week when you will do it. It is written that you must complete at least one Soderweek in your lifetime but it is recommended by the Elder Gods that you make as many Soderweek pilgrimages as possibly. I have chosen the week starting Feb 7th and ending Feb 14th as my first Soderweek, and the first film I watched was Solaris.

Solaris is a surprisingly great film. It’s a simple sci-fi story about a shrink (Cloon the goon) who has to take trip to a space ship that has stopped all contact. The ship is orbiting a celestial body known as Solaris. Solaris is a strange entity that nobody understands and when Clooney gets there he finds half the crew dead and the other half slowly being driven mad by the power of Solaris.

Any description of this film will make it sound much more intense and science fictiony than it is, but like 2001 (a film that obviously influenced Soderbergh in the making of this film) Solaris is a much subtler more subdued thing. Really this film is about one man coming to terms with the death of someone he loved, set against the always interesting back drop of madness from the vastness and intense alienness of the cosmos.

The film also stars Jeremy Davies, Viola Davis, and Natascha McElhone, and that is pretty much it. Personally I love Jeremy Davies in this and pretty much everything, he is just a fascinating person to watch, and his fidgety pause filled delivery is perfect for a Space Madness film. Viola Davis is also quite good she plays the other surviving crewmember and while she is just as crazy as Davies she plays it exactly the opposite, she is always stone still and very unassuming. McElhone plays Clooney’s lost love in both flashbacks and as a projection of Clooney’s memory via Solaris. McElhone has the tough job of being simultaneously off-putting to the audience but believable as somebody Clooney would immediately fall back in love even though he knows she is dead and she pulls it off perfectly.

As a sci-fi fan I was disappointed a bit with the way Soderbergh pushed aside most possibilities for some great sci-fi, but by the end I got what he was trying to get across. This isn’t a film about space and alien life it is about memory, and death, and love, and big themes that have been explored before, but in my opinion any theme is better if it is explored on a space ship.

Flicks Looking Forward: Spring 2011

Posted in movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 2, 2011 by Parker Connell

Okay folks I’m sorry to say I do not have a review ready for you on this Wednesday, but I made a promise that I would update at least once a week on Wednesday and I plan to stick to it. Hopefully I will have a review for The King’s Speech soon and that will be posted as soon as it is finished.

Until then I’d like to say a little bit about the films coming out in the spring of this year. In the coming weeks I’ll do a few more posts about the summer and fall, and maybe winter, who knows. Enjoy!

Drive Angry (February 25th) – Yes it looks unbelievably stupid, yes Nic Cage looks to be playing the guy from Bangkok Dangerous, yes it’s actually called Drive Angry, but watch the trailer and then tell me it doesn’t look like it’ll be worth every cent. Plus it was filmed in 3D none of this post-3D-ification Clash of the Airbenders nonsense.

Rango (March 4th) – I haven’t been this excited for a kids movie since Where the Wild Things Are. I don’t think Rango will be as good, but man Rango looks fun as hell. It’s really nice to see worthwhile CG projects coming out of a studio not named Disney.

The Adjustment Bureau (March 4th) – I really want this movie to be good. I know it won’t be good, but damn it could be. It looks to straight-laced to be a great PKD adaptation (like Minority Report or A Scanner Darkly) but a bit too weird to get the Matt Damon soccer mom crowd. I probably won’t be seeing this until it’s on Netflix Instant

Mars Needs Moms (March 11th) – Just kidding this looks really stupid.

Battle: LA (March 11th) – I only know the bare bones of this flick, but I can’t imagine it goes much deeper than aliens attack. I’m mildly interested to see this, if only for Aaron Eckhart and maybe a solid Military Sci-Fi story.

Jane Eyre (March 11th) – In my The Kids Are All Right review I made some big proclamations about Mia Wasikowsk, the big one being that I would see anything and everything she does from now on. Well this Bronte adaptation is hr next work so I guess I’m gonna have to eat my shoe on that one. For I am mostly a man of my word, mostly.

Paul (March 18th) – When I first heard about this flick I was mad excited, and each new sliver of information that was released over the following 2 years was met with enthusiasm. Then the first trailer came out and I had my first twang of worry, then the second trailer came out and I have pretty much given up on this flick.

Sucker Punch (March 25th) – March 25th cannot come soon enough, I am so unbelievably stoked for this outrageous looking movie. I’ve enjoyed everything Snyder has done in the past and this, his first original work, looks to be his best most entertaining flick. 2011 has a lot of lackluster looking action flick but hopefully Sucker Punch can redeem them.

Source Code (April 1st) – Everything about this movie screams cookie cutter light sci-fi thriller, but, I am excited for this film simply by virtue of it’s director Duncan Jones the man who brought us Moon. Also it has Jeffrey Wright the best actor alive not named Robert Duvall.

Your Highness (April 8th) – Could be great like Eastbound and Down, could be pretty good like Pineapple Express, but it could be awful. I’m hoping for greatness, and expecting pretty goodness, but there is a reason Willow 2 was never made.

Thor (May 6th) – Of the big budget Superhero flicks coming out this year Thor is the only one I want to see. The lead looks good, Natalie Portman is a talented actress who can hold her own against everyone in the cast. Plus nobody is wearing weird ugly CG clothes.

So that pretty much covers the movies I want to see in the springtime. Maybe I’ve sparked your interest in an upcoming film, maybe I made you decide not to see another, at the very least I hope I have entertained you momentarily.

 

Buried

Posted in movies with tags , , , , , , , on January 26, 2011 by Parker Connell

Forget what I said last week and move every movie on my best of 2010 list down one (sorry Babies) because Buried is my favorite film of 2010. This unbelievably tight thriller stars Ryan Reynolds as a guy trapped in a coffin and that is all I feel comfortable saying in terms of plot, if I were to speak a single syllable more on what this film is about I could possibly ruin your film going experience and I don’t want to do that. Not that it would make the film any less of a masterwork because I’ve seen it twice and can tell you that the second time through is just as engaging and maddening.

Everything about this film is incredibly well crafted, it’s a literal movie translation of Occam’s Razor in that ever aspect of the film is down to the bare minimum and this works to give the film a fresh, unhindered, free quality not seen in other “man trapped in one spot” movies (I’m looking at you 127 Hours).

The minimalistic quality of the film helps to keep your mind on the subject and the freedom Rodrigo Cortes as director and editor has given himself keeps the “gimmick” of Buried from killing it. That gimmick being that you never leave the coffin and are never more than a few inches away from Ryan Reynolds’s (wicked handsome) body.

Sure parts of the flick get a little political, but in the end, you forgive it for two reasons. A) Everything these days is a little political because like war and poverty man, and B) we can forgive it because it never gets in the way of the unbelievably tense story.

That is the best part about Buried, it never lets up, and I mean never. At one point you think it’s letting up, you feel like you might get a moment to breath and calm yourself, but then “No” says Buried, “Fuck you” it shouts at it runs off with your nerves and emotions in a tiny bag, a bag which Buried then pees on and sets fire to.

The first time I saw this film (being last Sunday) I wanted to tell everyone I knew to see it. The second time I saw it (being the Tuesday after my first viewing) I was actually a little upset that everyone I knew hadn’t already seen it. I film like this deserves a wide audience more than any of the crappy movies that came to my theater over the past year, and it worries me that since so few people have actually heard of Buried that now that it’s out on DVD and Blu Ray they’ll think it’s some straight to video piece of garbage. My only hope is that every person who loved Reynolds in The Proposal rents this and instead of being confused (like fans of Sandra Bullock films would normally be when faced with a film with zero jokes about underpants) they are hit with a sudden case of intelligence and enjoy this flick.

Speaking of The Proposal (or whatever crappy movie Reynolds was last in), Buried pretty much redeems him for every previous sin he’s committed against filmed entertainment. The movie totally depends on the performance of its main character because he is (excepting about 3 seconds) the only person on screen for the entire 90 minutes. If the performance had been anything short of great, this review would be entirely different, but as it stands Reynolds knocked it out of the park, using some real, honest to god, acting skillz. It’s just too bad that his next flick after this is the one where all his acting will be computer generated.

I cannot recommend this flick anymore highly; you owe it to yourself as a respectable human being to see it as soon as possible.

Top 15 Films of 2010

Posted in movies with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 19, 2011 by Parker Connell

15: Babies

I had a tough time picking between this and Catfish, and in the end Babies won because man this is just a joyful flick. I was excited for Babies for almost a year and when it finally came out I was bummed because I knew it would never play at the theater in my town, but luckily my mom lives in a much more culturally rad city and they got it.  Rarely do I squeal like a teenage girl at a Jonas Brothers (are they still a thing?) concert but man this movie caused uncontrollable fits of Jo-Bro squealing.

14: Iron Man 2

Iron Man 2 improves on every aspect of the original. A more menacing villain, a better actor playing Tony Stark’s buddy (the always great Don Cheadle replacing the always boring Terrence Howard) and the finale isn’t tacked on and boring.  If you liked the original you probably saw this, if you didn’t like the original, give this one a shot.

13: The Losers

I’m a sucker for the rag-tag team of soldiers each with their own area of expertise genre, I’m also a sucker for Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Idris Elba (STRINGER!!), Chris Evans, and Zoe Saldana. The Losers is a great looking flick with some incredibly cool characters and even cooler action, and excellent popcorn flick that was superior to the similar in idea A-Team.

12: True Grit

The Coen’s are on a serious hot streak ever since No Country for Old Men. The past couple years they’ve made the most thoroughly maddening, interesting, and entertaining films of their careers. True Grit isn’t as maddening, interesting, or good as A Serious Man, Burn After Reading, or No Country, but it’s still better than most films released in 2010. It’s an extremely simple western with three great performances from Jeff Bridges, Matt Damon, and the best most, impressive coming from Hailee Steinfeld. While True Grit wasn’t what I’ve come to expect from the Coen brothers I thoroughly enjoyed it.

11: The Town

If you haven’t seen this film because Ben Affleck is in it then fuck you, pardon my French but seriously, you suck. Ben Affleck is a pretty good actor, he’s been in some bad movies but from what I’ve seen he comes out of event he worst flicks pretty okay (Gigli not withstanding that flick is really as bad as you’ve heard). However, Ben Affleck is a god damn great director. The Town is his second film behind the camera after Gone Baby Gone and this time he decided to star in it as well, which works because he really got his best performance to date out of himself. Plus the dude from the Hurt Locker (Jeremy Renner) and the handsomest man in show business (Jon Hamm) are also in it and they are also really good.

10: Exit Through the Gift Shop

This is the best documentary I have ever seen, unless it’s not true, but you know what I think at least part of it is true, and whatever parts of this are true are the best documentary I’ve ever seen. A flick by street artist Banksy that is sort of about the rise of urban street art but mostly about a Frenchman who is nanners and carries a video camera everywhere he goes. It’s an engaging, enlightening, entertaining, and to break the alliteration, hilarious film.

9: Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

I’ve heard myriad complaints leveled against this film but I don’t understand any of them. It’s certainly not Stone’s best film, but it’s far from his worst. It’s a slick infinitely watchable drama with some great performances by Michael Douglas, Josh Brolin, Carey Mulligan, and yes Shia Lebeouf who I will stand by as a really good actor except when he’s acting with giant CG robots and gross, gross, inexplicably popular actresses. And sure it’s pretty much a modern retread of the original Wall Street but come on if you are going to steal from a movie you can do a lot worse than the Wall Street.

8: The Killer Inside Me

Despite the fact that The Killer Inside Me takes place in a small Texas town and takes place mostly on sunny days, it is an intensely dark flick. Casey Affleck gives an insanely creepy performance as the sexually violent main character Lou Ford, a deputy sheriff with some extremely serious sexual issues. The best way to describe this film is if American Psycho were set in Texas and actually as good as people think it is. Also remember Bill Pullman? He needs to be in more movies.

7: Valhalla Rising

This movie messed me up man. When the credits rolled I sat in the theater in stunned silence totally in awe of what I had just seen, then some stupid chick behind me had to say “I don’t get it” and ruin my moment of cinematic nirvana, I hate her and will hate her forever for doing that to me. Directed by Nicolas Winding Refn, the Danishman behind the disturbingly good Pusher trilogy and the almost too fucking good Bronson. You may not have heard of this but seriously watch it, if you have netflix it’s on the instant streaming deal, watch it and tell your friends, and if you don’t get it, keep that to yourself asshole.

6: Toy Story 3

Pixar mostly makes great movies, occasionally they make good movies, and once they made a bad movie, but Toy Story 3 as you most likely know, and if you don’t know you must have heard, belongs to the first category, it’s great. Sure I have my problems with it, mostly regarding the scene that made me cry (the one before the other scene that made me cry again) but other than that it’s a funny and engrossing piece of animation, now seriously Pixar forget about Cars and make a Bug’s Life sequel

5: How to Train Your Dragon

That’s right it’s higher on the list than Toy Story 3. Admittedly it’s probably a “better” film but Dragon is just more fun and had me emotionally invested in the characters without the filmmakers unnecessarily depressing the hell out of me. How to Train your Dragon is just a really fun adventure that almost makes up for how terrible the last three Shrek movies were.

4: Scott Pilgrim

If you find yourself complaining about the dearth of fun and originality in films these days you need to see Scott Pilgrim Vs The World because it is without a doubt the most fun film in years, and certainly Edgar Wright’s finest hour to date. This film is non-stop, every joke is tight and hilarious, every actor turns in if not there best performance certainly their funniest. I really cannot recommend this film anymore. Also if you think this film isn’t original because it’s based on a comic that is heavily influenced by video game and anime/manga culture name me one other movie that is anything like Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, you can’t because it’s original.

3: The Social Network

Dude like I really dig this flick because I mean like it’s really about my generation and like the way we kind of uumm communicate with each other and like how Facebook has totally changed like the way our lives work and like how friendship is, you know, but like it’s also got like really good acting and stuff from that guy from Adventureland and some guy who I’ve never seen before but is like playing Spider-man or something and like it’s super good and the guy who did Fight Club did this one and like his last few movies were totally boring but like this one is more exciting like Fight Club, but The Social Network isn’t as confusing or like trippy as Fight Club, because like Fight Club is probably the most confusing and trippy movie ever made.

2: Inception

You know what I like about Christopher Nolan’s latest and greatest flick Inception? It makes you think. Everyone can think about this flick, from the idiots who are still wondering if it’s all a dream or if the top fell over, to actual thinking human beings who wonder what this film says about filmmaking or wonder if maybe it’s all a metaphor for gay/lesbian rights (think about it Cobb and Saito really seem to be interested in growing old together). On top of all that elitist thinking that us artistic pinkos love this film also has some top-notch action set pieces for the plebes, and also for the non-plebes because no matter who you are zero-g face punchin’ is cool.

1: Black Swan

Darren Aronofsky is a director who knows how to gross me out. Every film he’s made so far has made me flinch, gag, or cover my eyes, in Pi it was the thing with the drill, then in Requiem it was the arm sore, The Fountain actually didn’t have a moment but every rule needs an exception to prove it, or so I’ve been told, then in The Wrestler the staples in the guys back freaked me out, Black Swan had like 20 moments like that. What’s worse (or better?) was that the movie totally makes you forget that it just made you want to throw up by having really tremendous acting by Natalie Portman, Vincent Cassel and surprisingly Mila Kunis. Seriously, Portman is getting a lot of praise, which she totally deserves and it is a superb bit of acting she does (some people would call it brave, I wouldn’t because I don’t really know what that means) but Mila Kunis really surprised me, I mean I hated her more than Wilmer Valderama on “That (awful piece of garbage) 70’s Show”. I’d compare it to The Aviator for DiCaprio where you forget he was on a really crappy sit-com and accept him as an actor, except Kunis did it way sooner in her career. I expected Black Swan to be good, but it turned out to be the best flick I saw in 2010.

The Kids Are All Right

Posted in movies with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 12, 2011 by Parker Connell

I really wanted to enjoy The Kids are All Right. Going in I was expecting a light, funny, intelligent comedy about an interesting modern family. In the end, however, I wasn’t all that impressed.

The Kids are All Right is about a lesbian couple played by Julianne Moore and Annette Bening and their two children 18-year-old Joni and 15-year-old Laser played by Mia Wasikowska and Josh Hutcherson respectively. Joni has just graduated high school and with some pushing on the part of her brother decides to call the guy whose donated sperm was used to impregnate the moms. That dude’s name is Paul and the normally very entertaining Mark Ruffalo plays him.

Now if you were presented with this premise, just this sort of over long log line, what story would you tell? I know I would tell the story of the kids and use it to explore the idea of homosexual parenthood and the bizarre act of people using a stranger’s seed. That to me is infinitely more interesting than a story about the dysfunctions in the marriage of Moore and Bening.

My disinterest and boredom with the squabbles and bickering of the parents has absolutely nothing to do with the fact that it is two women; it has more to do with the waste of an excellent and original story. As far as I know there has not been a film about teens born from donated sperm, certainly nothing as mainstream as this, starring bankable actors and actresses. Instead The Kids Are All Right seems more interested in telling the same old boring upper-middle class suburban marriage falls apart at the slightest interruption to the status quo.

Annette Bening does what she’s been doing since American Beauty by playing an uptight control freak, this time she’s a bit looser, which was occasionally refreshing, but mostly it just felt extremely cliché. Julianne Moore plays a bit against character as the fun-loving, new agey, middle-aged hippie. I found Moore’s performance a bit nerve-racking in the beginning, and then her character makes a few decisions that were so bizarre and stupid to me that I just sort of lost it.

Now before you think I’m completely writing this flick off let me just say that there are moments that were incredibly intelligent and equally as entertaining. Every one of those moments involved the kids. Especially Mia Waskowska her performance was incredible, something about the way she got across her character’s unassuming intelligence and her, in a way, contradictory need for approval really floored me in a way few teenage character’s do, plus she was really quite funny. Hutcherson was also quite funny in almost all of his scenes in a much more obvious (but in a good way) and jokey manner. Hutcherson’s friendship with a mildly psychotic neighbor kid was also interesting and realistic, it’s one of the few honest teenage friendships in a film where yes jock type straight-laced looking kids in this day and age do in fact hang out with insane punk rock junkie types, it’s just the accepting kind of world we live in now. It’s just too bad these characters have felt more like tangents to the director’s intended story.

Speaking of acceptance, the portrayal of the homosexual relationship was one thing I really felt the director Lisa Cholodenko along with her co-writer Stuart Blumberg got right. Now when I say right I don’t necessarily mean true to life, this I do not know, I have never known a seriously committed lesbian couple so I do not know how they or their children would be treated, I do however know that the least interesting thing they could do would be to have the kid’s having to deal with their peers mockery for having “two moms”. I applaud the writing team for that, however, as much respect as I have for that aspect of the film, I would like to heap on doubly so my disdain for another aspect of the writing.

If this film wins any writing award, especially from the academy, I will be mildly perturbed, for really only one reason, but this is just so glaring and annoying that it took me out of the film every time it happened. I am speaking of course of naming Josh Hutcherson’s character Laser. Holy crap man, why, I mean that reads to me like a first draft kind of thing, where your put it in as like a joke, with maybe a couple of jokes about it strewn throughout and then in subsequent drafts when you realize that it is stupid you take out all the jokes, which the must have done, but then the writers forgot to do a find and replace function for the name Laser to replace it with Ansell or Vincent or some sort of arty name. Naming the kid Laser just felt over written and kind of twee, and if that was the point then it was a bad idea because they didn’t need to give the audience anymore reason to dislike the annoying, bickering, overly hip parents.

I expected to like The Kids are All Right more, instead what I got was a really dull experience punctuated by glimpses of the kind of movie it could have been. Taking the good with the bad, at least I know to look out for any and every flick Mia Wasikowska does from now on, and I have another reason to really like Josh Hutcherson besides his (surprisingly awesome) previous work on Zathura.

 

Catfish

Posted in movies with tags , , on January 4, 2011 by Parker Connell

First off I’d like to apologize for my lack of updates. This blog is my homepage but I have done very little to necessitate that in the past few months. So from this point on, call it a vow or a New Year’s resolution, I’ll do my best to bring you fine readers, or reader?, reviews at least once a week. You folks can give me a hand as well by suggesting flicks.

In a way this leads me into the review for the documentary I literally just finished watching. Catfish is directed by Ariel Shulman and Henry Joost and is about Ariel’s brother Nev’s internet correspondence with a child artist named Abby and Abby’s older sister Megan.

It begins simple enough with Abby sending Nev, a photographer based in New York City, an unsolicited painting of a photograph Nev had published in a periodical. From there they being a sort of artistic relationship, and soon Nev becomes friends with the mother Angela and sister Megan.

The friendship with Megan becomes something more, and really that’s all I can tell you without spoiling the flick, and as the poster indicates one shouldn’t let anyone tell one what it is.

Without giving anything away I can tell you that this flick is emotionally draining. You may be thinking, how lame of you to say such a thing, that’s like saying that some of the imagery in The Fountain was “so emotionally profound as to be arousing” and while I agree that saying such things about The Fountain, an excellent film don’t get me wrong, would be foolish and should be embarrassing to any such person who would seriously say such a thing, but saying Catfish is emotionally draining is nothing like that.

Mostly this has to do with the second half of the flick, but some of it comes from following this guys long-distance internet relationship, or lo-dis-netationship. Now this may have a lot to do with myself having once been in a lo-dis-netationship so I knew kind of the vaguely bizarre feelings this cat was going through while on the phone with her, but mostly it was just god-damned honest, especially considering Nev’s brother was filming this. I know that if my brother started filming me talking on the phone with a girl i was in a psu-lo-dis-neationship (a psuedo-long-distance- internet relationship) i’d just punch him in the nads and walk away. I certainly wouldn’t let him continue filming me.

Anyway go see this flick and by go I mean rent it/buy it, it came out today on DVD so it should be relatively easy to come by.

Cop Out

Posted in movies with tags , , , , , on September 15, 2010 by Parker Connell

Let me start by saying I saw Cop Out the day it was released in theaters. I went with a couple of friends, expecting a sub-par Kevin Smith experience. We all left feeling let down from that expectation. Upon watching it at home recently I now realize just how wrong we were. We went in expecting something that wasn’t very good so we left feeling let down. In reality we should have gone in expecting the best from Kevin Smith because that is what Cop Out is, Kevin Smith’s greatest work as a director, and a strong contender for best comedy of the past 10 years.

Cop Out takes the tired old mismatched buddy cop genre and turns it around making it vibrant and fresh again. Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan are partners in the NYPD and they play by their own rules, and sometimes their rules are no rules at all. As a for instance take the stake out scene where Tracy is dressed as a giant cell phone. What perfect comedic invention made even better by Smith’s decision to let Morgan riff freely. Tracy Morgan is hilarious in shows like 30 Rock and SNL where he is reigned in and controlled by television censorship but given the Kevin Smith seal of unmitigated swears he is revolutionary. He bounces comedy off everything on-screen.

Bruce Willis is also used perfectly. He’s a grizzled old cop, like John McClane if he hadn’t had all those run-ins with greedy Germans and just became jaded and sarcastic. As a straight man for Morgan’s antics he is amazing, but don’t worry in the realm of comedy Bruno is no slouch. Smith and the writers give Willis ample opportunity to stretch that comedy muscle.

The story is all over the place, which is a welcome departure from Smith’s usual linear way of telling a story, but at the center is a baseball card worth enough money to pay for an elaborate wedding for Bruce Willis’ daughter’s wedding. Needless to say things aren’t so simple for our heroes. I won’t spoil anything (because I highly recommend you see this) but let me just add that this has one of the most menacing villains I’ve ever seen in a comedy!

The look of this film is pretty great. It reminded me so much of old cop flicks like The French Connection and Serpico. Very down on the street, gritty, which made juxtaposition of comedy pop even more.

I could go on and on about this movie, from Kevin Pollack and Adam Brody as Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan’s rivals on the force with a weird predilection for cowboy wear, or the out of this world action set pieces, but I won’t I want this revelatory comedy experience to be a new and fresh experience for you.

I promise you will not be disappointed!
