    Fun and beautiful and entertaining with smile throughout. But...

    The whole movie is just gimmick and after gag after gimmick and they started to become somewhat stale and predictable by the last third or so.

    There are lots of wonderful moments and it was a good time in the cinema, but I just wish I cared more. It's not quite funny enough to make it a "wow" experience and there are nearly zero stakes or anything much to care about.…

    Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.

    The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
