Given how much I love In Bruges I expecting to enjoy this one a bit more.
The script just wasn’t great, and by that I mean the dialogue. The concept is quite fun but the movie’s tone is quite rocky, mostly due to many of the intended jokes falling flat.
JOAN CUSACK STEALS THE MOVIE! She might have 5 minutes of screen time but she makes the most of it, going from 0 to 100 on the phone and she delivered some of the biggest laughs.
Also, I don’t get the Minnie Driver thing, why was she all over the place in the late 90s? She doesn’t seem very charming to me and I don’t find her very attractive.
