    ★½

    The Good:
    Lou Diamond Phillips in drag
    Harrison Ford’s dad dancing
    A baby-faced Anthony Mackie
    Lena Olin

    The Bad:
    Pretty much everything else. It is desperate to be Lethal Weapon, but it ends up being more of a Water Pistol.
    Also: it is the most heinous crime against music to bastardise the mellifluous sounds of The Temptations’ My Girl into the tinny bleating of an early 2000s flip phone ringtone and to then compound that villainy by replaying it throughout the film ad nauseam.

    Like a brick of tainted cocaine, this has been cut to shit. Disjointed, barely coherent and a criminal waste of Cage and Fishburne (although the latter does have a couple of wild moments that leaven the crushing tedium).

    Last Year at Marienbad

    An ambiguous story that I may or may not have enjoyed.

    Only kidding: I unambiguously found it impenetrable and increasingly irritating, in no small part because of the intermittent screeching of the organ on the soundtrack.

    The sheer fucking unwarranted hubris of Todd Phillips that he thought he could better (let alone equal) Planes, Trains & Automobiles. I laughed a total of two times - both times because RDJ pulled a facial expression that managed to rise above the pitiful slop of the script.
