These are films that I've seen over the years that I've either liked or loved, but A LOT of people…
Two's Company, Three's A Crime.
Two bank robbers fall in love with the girl they've kidnapped.
I am a huge Bruce Willis fan. I saw this movie in theaters during its opening weekend. I was so unimpressed with it on the first viewing that it took me 14 years to revisit it.
In this one Willis and Billy Bob Thornton play bank robbers called the Sleepover Bandits. While the travel across the country robbing banks they stumble upon Cate Blanchett and they both fall in love with her.
This one tries real hard to be a Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid movie. It does not even remotely come close to reaching the heights of that classic movie. The second time around....I appreciated the acting of Willis, Blanchett and Thornton a lot more. I still strongly…
Bruce Willis has the scariest looking wig I've ever seen.
Barry Levinson has a habit of making clever, really interesting films and with a cast this good I expected a lot better.
Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thornton are the bank robbing escaped convicts that become a media sensation with their unusual bank robbing technique. Arriving the night before at the bank managers home and then spending the night with their family they then casually arrive at the bank early the following morning and rob it. Ruthlessly efficient they intimidate without violence and with Thornton's character amiably likable they earn a grudging respect from both the media and law enforcement. Things however become complicated when a disillusioned housewife comes into the mix in the shape of Cate Blanchett creating mayhem…
Yo Bruce Willis that's the craziest looking hair piece I've ever seen. This shit makes Donald Trumps hair look like Fabio. Billy Bob Thornton wears a long blonde wig in this that's more convincing than that rug. It looks like you have an alien creature taking roost on top of your head fam.
Hey Bruce is that a fucking dead bird you have attached to your head because it looks like the sparrow my cat dragged into the house the other day. I actually think the dead bird that is now in my trash can would be a more convincing toupee.
To make matters worse you're tying it in a little pony tail at the back. What is that accomplishing? Distracting people from the top? Who are you Michael Bolton? Get outta here with that.
I don't ever remember seeing this film before and after twenty minutes I wish I could still say the same.
Maybe I had seen it back in 2001 then had the memory of it surgically removed. Now I have to go through the process again.
Am I doomed to keep repeating this?
It's taken me four days to watch this whole meandering, tedious affair. It's not funny, just annoying. The script (I'm guessing there was one) just seems to ramble on and on. Bruce Willis is at his worst, but nobody comes out of this well.
Its not one of the best action movie, but it its a good comedy and i laughed alot.
Great performances, but the film itself doesn't make much sense.
This film literally did not make sense from start to finish AND included U2 and Five For Fighting on the soundtrack as if people wanted to hear that music.
This film uses U2's "Beautiful Day" TWICE.
One full star for Billy Bob Thornton as a hypochondriac bank robber, half a star for the shot of the backlit robbers-on-the-run shooting roman candles into the ocean.
Top ten dance scenes in movies:
1.) Dil Se
2-10.) Cate Blanchett dancing to "I need a hero."
Desperate housewifes, watch out, Cate is not desperate at all, she kicks butt!
There was a time some 15 years ago when I adored Bruce Willis and watched everything he was in. A lot has changed in 15 years. Thornton and Blanchett both stand a good head taller than Willis, who frankly comes off a bit bored.
Really, Bandits as a whole is a tad boring. It's overly long and not all that compellingly paced. There are little character moments that I love, especially Blanchett's earliest scenes and I still like the ending despite itself.
Outside of Billy Bob Thornton, there is very little to enjoy in BANDITS. It plays like an attempt at a PG rated NATURAL BORN KILLERS. Bruce Willis is given very little to do and could care less, while Cate Blanchett is forced to stand around between the two male leads. Bummer.
lowk not to be mean but this movie would've sucked without cate blanchett
Not really holding out for a hero. (4/10)
