3.0 out of 5 stars ALOT OF LAUGHS IN A SHALLOW POND!!!, December 28, 2008
This review is from: Watching the Detectives (DVD)
This movie is hilarious beyond belief. Staying up late and catching it on Showtime at 6:30 in the morning was like finding a diamond in the rough. This movie lacks major character development more like a television show that you should have been watching for a few weeks and then got a 2 hour finale special. You never really get any character insight you never fully get to know who NEIL is (CILLIAN MURPHY BATMAN BEGINS SCARECROW) or the even more mysterious Violet (LUCY LIU CHARLIE'S ANGEL'S). Half the movie is spent with Neil half the movie is spent with Neil trying to get Violet's phone number& figuring out where she lives. Neil is quite the classic movie buff and hates the big time establishment "MEGA VIDEO" (something like blockbuster) for their lack of love and knowledge of movies they own. He has his own set of nerdy movie friends who bicker over different movie topics, whereas Violet is a very bizarre and spontaneous character who comes and goes her friends like herself are very kooky and random but play minor various roles throughout the movie. She meets Neil and tries to get him to portray the characters he watches in movies rather than just talk about them this leads Neil on an adventurous life risking few days or weeks. The movie loses you in confusion numerous times, amazingly and surprisingly funny if you want a change of pace, just bored out of your mind or you want to see Lucy Liu and Cillian Murphy out of their normal character watch it. It won't disappoint if you fall under those 3 categories. My rating 3.5 out of 5 stars. IT HAS POTENTIAL.
