Do we really have to swallow all that bullshit before anything starts to, like, happen?
I mean, yeah yeah yeah, it's meta. I got it.
There's only one thing that's worse than a movie in which a pet makes funny faces to react to what the characters do.
And that's a movie in which a pet makes funny faces to react to what the characters do and then one of the characters immediately shouts: "Don't look at me like that".
WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD.
To begin with, the main conflict is based on one of the most annoying horror clichés ever: the memory loss one.
Ok, whatever. A lot of other movies do so and some of them are pretty good, aren't they? I mean, what really pisses me off is that the screenplay is not smart enough even to set its main conflict and stick to it: first, we're led to believe it's all about what Adrien Brody's character has…
It may be easy to overlook this movie, since it seems to tell just another tale of a man's struggle to overcome (or at least survive) his disabiliy.
It is as sweet, tender and straightforward as it could be, though, avoiding all the clichés and distractions of an ordinary feel-good movie.
