Re: Rate & Mini-Summarize the Last Movie You Saw
Knight and Day- a film about a man who meets a girl on a plane, and her finding out that he is a wanted man. Starring Tom Cruise (Valkyrie), Cameron Diaz (Shrek Forever After), and Peter Sarsgaard (Orphan). The plot sounds a lot like The Killers, which came out recently as well. This one is better though. I have a knack for watching Cameron Diaz films, because I find her attractive. There are moments that are nice and funny, and it has substantial action in it, so it never runs out of steam. Probably not going to be one of the most standout films of the summer, but it has its entertainment value.
Grown Ups- a film about four friends who reunite at a lakehouse, after the death of their high school basketball coach. Starring Adam Sandler (Funny People), Kevin James (Paul Blart: Mall Cop), Chris Rock (Death at a Funeral), David Spade (The Benchwarmers), and Rob Schneider (You Don't Mess With The Zohan). I'm not a fan of all the said comedian actors, but I think they worked together very well. I've been reading some really bad reviews for this film, but honestly its pretty good. It has its great funny moments, even from Schneider who has some horrible funny moments in his past. Only big problem there is with the film, is that there really isn't a plot that serves for buildup, but rather a relaxing comedy throughout. Overall, if your looking for a relaxing comedy this one is good.
