The Happening

The Happening ★★½

wahlberg gets a lot of shit for his work here, but he comes off looking better than zooey deschanel who seems to have no earthly idea what she's doing on screen. he's a movie star who has been miscast, she's just an actor who's not cutting it.

the rest is fine, some very effectively creepy sequences from shyamalan and fujimoto in the early going, but the whole movie can't quite find the right tone.
