It’s expensive to see movies. It’s not expensive to watch the trailers, guess what it’s about and try to review them. Here’s what’s opening this week.
*SPOILER ALERT* You are not interested in this movie. I know you think you do because you like hunky, shirtless men traveling to a different world and conquering it but alas, you are busy this weekend with college basketball and Kony. With a lot of movies I like to guess the specific population of people the Hollywood execs were trying to grab and with this gem I’m going with “Not Americans.” Not that we are some super-intelligent culture who can only enjoy The Artist or Con Air but I picture when they were writing the script, a lot of notes from the studio were, “Please use small words and sentences that are easily translatable to other countries. Thanks a mil!”
Eddie Murphy can only say a 1000 words before he loses the ability to speak. This movie would have been great before the advent of technology. I don’t think I “speak” a 100 words a day. It’s a lot of sexting and sexIMs and sexmails so if Eddie Murphy reaches a 1000 words, he can be OK. Maybe they put a qualifier “NO SEXTING” in the movie to get around this little issue but I doubt it. The moral lesson of the movie is to not be self-centered and focus on your needs but to be patient and listen to other people’s needs. Another way to say that is let other people be self-centered and you have to listen to it. Twist! Not really. I don’t know. None of us are ever going to see this and I don’t think that’s a bad thing in any way.
