Hey, thanks. I was about to spend the dinner and a movie sum for myself and my girlfriend.
Now I'll just spend the dinner sum.
Excellent discussion of a film with a trailer that almost sucked me in.
That's kind of what I thought about the first one. Huge cast, all the money in the world to make a great film or at least an entertaining one, and it's all for squat in the end.
And frankly, I have had enough of caper flicks. The message is that if you were handsome, smart and daring enough, you'd do the same and not be a sucker like the rest of us working stiffs. Any crime can be excused as long as we can hate the victim and the perpetrators are good-looking and stylish enough. It's despicable.
Three couples of differing ages and interests just saw this movie and enjoyed the light-heartedness and "contrived" complexities of the movie. It was entertaining, which is what movies are supposed to be. It was not literature - I read books for that! You're much too critical about this film.
