Movies I’ve Watched Lately: Good Luck Chuck Sucks Edition
Been awhile since I’ve did one of these. I haven’t really watched many movies since the last one(early September). However I’ve got Netflix now so will hopefully be watching a lot more movies.
Bad Teacher: Pretty sure there was more swearing in the actual red band trailer than the fucking movie. Was pretty weak, the supporting roles of Segal & Timberlake added absolutely nothing. *1/2
The Perfect Host: This is the one with David Hyde Pierce(Niles from Frasier) that had a really fucked up trailer. Holy shit this was REALLY good. The story itself was great, but it really needed an A+ performance from Pierce and he fucking delivered! One of those movies where the actor delivers to the point that you can’t even imagine any other actor in that role. Highly recommended. *****
The Roommate: Oh dear god is this ever a DUD in every sense of the word. Absolutely horrible with nothing interesting going on whatsoever. FFS at least have some crazy kill scenes or something. This is absolute tripe, and even a girl on girl kiss won’t get it 1/2*.
Everything Must Go: I usually absolutely hate coming-of-age stories, but this had just enough to keep me plugging along. Still wouldn’t recommend it though. Stranger Than Fiction it ain’t. **
Beethoven: This movie just gets better and better the more you see it. ***** This was the first time my kids watched it. Mason was hilarious. He went from “I dont want to watch this movie if the dog is going to bite anyone in the privates” to screaming for the dog to do that to the evil vet.
Fuck me what a good movie. I’ve watched it easily 100 times and I still tear up at the swimming pool scene.
Harold & Kumar 3: Very weird in the sense that there’s no medium ground – at times it’s fucking HILARIOUS, and at times it’s absolutely AWFUL with a ton of jokes falling flat. Danny Trejo has the best 3D scene, and NPH is fucking FANTASTIC. ***
Along Came Polly: Awful. Stiller & Aniston have anti-chemistry. Anistons character is just fucking weird, and they didn’t even try to flesh out Stillers character past the opening 5 minutes. Turned it off with about 30 minutes left. DUD
Good Luck Chuck: Oh dear god so so bad. I shoulda just turned it off when it turned into Dane Cook having sex with about 100 different women, but I struggled to about 30 minutes left before just giving up altogether. I wish I could remove this movie from my memory.
