One Sentence: The preview is the good parts.

If you are like me, you wanted to see this as soon as your saw the preview.  It looked so funny, and who doesn't want to make a bunch of silly movies and have everyone want to rent them.  I have a whole library of movies available for rent starring me in all the roles if interested please send 20 dollars and I will get one out to you in 4 to 6 weeks.  But yea, movie, awesome looking, got to watch, let's go see it in the theater, even though everyone is saying it is not so good.  How can it be bad, did you see the preview.

Yea the preview is the only funny parts of the movie.  Outside of what you have already seen in the previews, it is a sort of slow, sweet movie about saving an old landmark.  With mildly ok community involvement that makes your heart warm 1 degree at the end.  The movie remakes are creative, and they do show very well what the movie is, and doing it in a way that a group of guys could do.  But this takes on a smaller part that we are led to believe and it is only just a few movies.  

The movie is confused about what it wants to be, and it looks like it wanted to just be a movie remake movie, but someone forced them to have a plot.  A plot no one cared about or wanted in the movie.  Everyone just wanted to have fun doing movie remakes.  Another weird thing was the cuts in the movie were very harsh.  There were times it felt like the scene got cut right in the middle of a conversation for time or some other reason, but those cuts stood out to me and distracted me from the movie.  It was just ok anyway, so I was not missing too much just another thing I noticed.  Overall I would say it's a renter maybe.

  • I still want to see this, it looks decent enough. I could have gone to a pre-screening of it, but school made it hard for me to attend. I will keep your review in mind when I see it, and I hope you will visit my blog and read my review of it when I get the chance to write one.

    Have a good one,
