All opinions wrong, I take full responsibility
So tight and slick and peppy and higher production value than what you see coming from Hollywood now that you almost don't notice that the first half of this is just guys in tight spaces with moody lighting spouting jargon and being puzzled.
The motor that runs this thing are the fun performances, everyone is having a blast. Highlight is definitely Connery's enigmatic Soviet captain and James Earl Jones' oddly gleeful CIA officer. Baldwin is miscast as the fish-out-of-water nerd…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Ailing industries, hustlers by nature, dudes with shitty jobs, scruffy oldheads, and those of us just trying to vibe all working out our personal shit in the face of an impending existential catastrophe and gawking at the spectacle.
Truly a movie of our times
The American Dream is really more like a relentless and arbitrary cascade of nightmares caused by our own desires, but this movie correctly assumes that most of us are gigantic imbeciles that can't internalize such a reality before we get pleasantly distracted by all of our nifty bullshit.
Nearly uninterrupted perfect gags
Steve Martin is in peak form.
RIP Carl Reiner
