5.0 out of 5 stars Elmore Leonard weirdness at its best February 27, 2013
Crispin Glover, is perfect. Loved the book, love the movie even more. Bravo! Stylish and moody, with a strong feeling of absurdity.

2.0 out of 5 stars PUT THAT THING AWAY! March 18, 2013
I love a good grindhouse. Heck I even love a mediocre grindhouse. This one didn't make it, and it wasn't just because Christian Slater was in it. The film starts in 1975 then plays newsreel headlines from 1968-1975 just to let us know the writers didn't care about details. We are then fed a story that is highly improbable. All this is find and well for a grindhouse.

What this story lacked was the grindhouse soundtrack and over the top dialouge. Instead they feed us a tale of Woody (Crispin Glover) a rich stoner accused of rape by a woman (Sabina Gadecki) that wasn't sure he actually raped her. The investigator (Billy Burke) gets kicked off the force, but that didn't seem to be a plot point, just an attempt at humor. Meanwhile seductive Robin (Breanne Racano) is after the money and utilizes bomb expect Skip (Christian Slater) to assist her.

The film has a lot of drug use, but lacks decent drug humor. The humor wasn't crude or low brow, it just wasn't well written and executed, lacking zing and delivery. While people get killed in this wannabe grindhouse, there is no blood or fight scenes associated with such features. The movie is out right lame compared to how it is being promoted.

If you like a modern unrealistic view of the 70's in Detroit with substandard writing and performance, you might want to rent this film.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, lame sex scenes, no nudity.

Format:Amazon Instant Video
Author Elmore Leonard speaks with a particularly stylized voice. His stories, characters and dialogue can seem very straightforward, even laid back, but there is a surprising intricacy in his tone. Everyone can seem slightly off-kilter and his plotlines can meander ceaselessly, but he always manages to ground even the most outlandish tale with unexpected smarts. Adapting a Leonard novel is no small task, but I was optimistic when I heard Charles Matthau (son of Walter) was taking on "Freaky Deaky." As the writer and director of this piece, Matthau has tried to stay faithful to the source material in plotting. Ultimately, though, the end result never quite gels like vintage Leonard. Most of the movie feels inert and lifeless, which is odd in a movie abounding with eccentricity.

For the sake of argument, I'll contend that "Freaky Deaky" might be considered a cross between two more successful Leonard adaptations as a point of reference. It has the showbiz chicanery of "Get Shorty" mixed with the duplicitous double dealing of "Jackie Brown" (from Leonard's Rum Punch). Stylistically, both of these films adeptly translated Leonard's interwoven plotlines to great amusement. The dialogue was whip smart and clever, even as you revel in the idiocy of some of the major players and misfits. "Freaky Deaky" has the potential to do the same and its comedic sensibilities are squarely in place. It's a lesser work, to be sure, but it still has the colorful cast of losers and grifters that seem to shape Leonard's body of titles. Why, then, did I not laugh more?

The movie centers around a disillusioned Detroit cop (Billy Burke) who gets involved in a sexual assault case brought about by a comely stranger (Sabina Gadecki).

3.0 out of 5 stars I like the freaky but request more deaky June 19, 2013
I like the 2012 caper film FREAKY DEAKY, based on the Elmore Leonard novel of the same name, well enough to recommend it. Stylish and fast-paced, FREAKY DEAKY held my attention even if I did not get into it as much as I did viewing, say, GET SHORTY, to name another movie version of a Leonard book. But the reason I say that is part of what I admire about FREAKY DEAKY: I was not sure whom to root for/root against. I give the flick credit for challenging the audience to make up its mind instead of having the movie do it for them. Maybe had its bigger schemers, played by Michael Jai White and Breanne Racano, had more screen time I would have been more caught up in it.

As FREAKY DEAKY takes place in the year 1974, in the background of a couple of scenes you'll note movie theaters playing films starring director Charles Matthau's famous dad, THE TAKING OF PELHAM ONE TWO THREE and THE FRONT PAGE.

With dynamite being a favorite tool of FREAKY DEAKY antagonists, it must have been hard to resist using a clip of the then-hit television show GOOD TIMES, with its "Dy-no-mite" catchphrase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freaky 70s Leonard February 25, 2013
It's hard to get the Elmore Leonard tone right. Justified does it for the most part, Out of Sight did it extremely well, and this falls right in line with those. Amazing cast, quirky characters, surprising left turns, this movie has it all. And oh, the set design! Fun, fun stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not an Elmore Leonard fan but Matthau pulls it off! February 25, 2013
This is something that only a skilled Director would tackle. Charlie Matthau used his same style he did, as with 'The Grass Harp', even though Freaky deaky is an entirely different genre. This is similar to Frank Capra's work, no matter what Frank did, you could tell "Capra' did it. By far, anything Charlie directs, has his touch on it.
