This movie sucked. It tried WAY to hard to be cute and catchy and trendy and avant garde and cool and hip and retro-stylish and it just came across as trying WAY TOO FUCKING hard. You’ve seen this exact same thing in almost EVERY Elmore Leonard adaptation but this time you get Will Forte with a moustache, Isla Fisher in a bikini and 70s panties and Tim Robbins looking like a fucking vampire. I hated this movie as much as I hated Trucker Hats, Planking, Tebowing and The Macarena. PFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFT.
P.S. I like Mos Def but I can barely understand a word that comes out of his mouth sometimes.
P.P.S. Since this post was not much of anything let’s see if I can get something better out this afternoon. Well – not necessarily better – since I have set the bar pretty low for future generations of people writing about movies – but – something else.
