I’m not even ashamed to say that I enjoyed this film. When I first heard of it I wasn’t excited at all and I never gave it a chance until recently. But once I started watching it I got really into it – and I didn’t wanna stop watching it until it was over. I’m not sure what it was about this movie that entertained me. It must have been the story cause the characters were really boring. I’d watch it again though and Im happy that I finally gave it a chance to impress me.
For being a childrens movie i greatly enjoyed..it covered the basic childrens story but at the same time some of the humour you can tell was directed at a more mature crowd. Which made this movie even out very nicely, it made me oooo and ahhh but also laugh at the witty humour. The voices couldnt have fit the characters any more perfectly :)..I was definately impressed!

A box boy who was happy with nothing, finds a girl that makes him want to improve his life. He learns that she is attracted to people who acheive ‘Employee of the Month’ awards in the department store that they work in. He does everything in his power to become the ‘Employee of the Month’.
I actually enjoyed this film a lot more than I thought I would. When it first came out I always desided against watching it cause i thought it would be way to boring and annoying. It wasn’t quite as bad as I had imagined but it still wasn’t that amazing. I really have something against Jessica Simpson, I don’t know why, but something about her acting really bugs me – she’s really bad.
Dane Cook was mediocre, nothing to say about him either way. The whole idea behind the movie was really boring though. I think they made the best movie they could have made about a storyline so flat and almost annoying.
I dont know if i really liked this movie or not. It was just..one of those romantic comedy movies. I guess those who LOVE Dane Cook, or are infatuated with Jessica Simpson would die for this movie. But personally….it wasnt ANYTHING special at all to me. Yeah, i laughed a little..but not much. I wouldnt want to see this movie again. I really dont enjoy Jessica Simpsons acting, i think she should…i dont know…work fast food? cause she cant really sing either.

B’s Review of Jessica Simpson
Jessica Simpson is a really bad actress. I’m not just saying that because she’s a horrible singer, and using her in a film pretty much garauntee’s a bust – she just isn’t fun to watch. She may be a beautiful woman with a “great” career – but she isn’t entertaining – shes bland, boring and really flat as a character in all the films that I’ve seen her in. It really puts me in a bad mood when I hear of another film that she’s in.

A girl who’s babysitting at a house for the first time finds herself in a bad situation when a man enters the house with the intention to kill her and the kids. She fights back for her life as well as the children she’s meant to be caring for.
The title of the movie is pretty much the intire film – What do you do ‘When A Stranger Calls’??
In my opinion this film wasn’t worth watching, ya it was a little scary in some parts and a couple of the scenes were well made – but it was just like every other horror film out there, pointless killing with no story. The actress was alright, not that interesting – she did a better job in the film ‘The Ballad of Jack and Rose’ which she did only months before this one. The movie was mediocre, nothing special. I watched it once when it first came out and I didn’t really wanna watch it a second, now that I have – I doubt I’ll ever watch it again.
Oh boy, this movie was so scary…one of the scariest movies i have ever seen. Oh, and the actresses were amazing, and the storyline….was flawless!…Kidding. This movie was ridiculous. They shouldnt havent have remade this film, sometimes when they do remakes it just ruins the originals. The actress in this movie, horrible. Like seriously! Just get those kids and find a way outta that motha f***in house!!!!..Just horrible. The kids that didnt even spend that much time in this movie did the best job out of anybody.

B’s Review of Camilla Belle
As I think I said before Camilla Belle did an amazing job in the movie ‘The Ballad of Jack and Rose’ when you compare it to this one. Her acting in this film, not only was bad becuase she lacked talent, but as well because the character that she was playing was a horribly prepared, annoying, dumbass. When Belle was younger she was in movies such as Jurassic Park and Practical Magic, and I would rather watch either of those films over this one anytime.

The story of this film seems complicated while your watching it because there are so many different things going on at once, but when you break it down its actually pretty simple.
In the begining of the film you think that everyone wants this Buddy “Aces” character dead and the cops are trying to protect him because he’s there key witness against the mafia.
Later on in the film you find out that he’s actually the lead mafia mans son and he’s so old he needs a heart transplant.
I really enjoyed this film, it’s a great attention catcher. It has awesome acting in it. When I saw the trailers for it I thought for sure that it was going to be one of those hyped up films – but it wasn’t. It was filmed really well, it was funny, as well as crazy and packed full of awesome action scenes. If you like those kinda films, you’ll like this one!
Yes, many people have said that it’s just another Pulp Fiction knock off – but you gotta realize – we’re almost at the point today where a movie is going to be criticized for that no matter what.
I was surprised that Alicia Keys could act to be honest. I seen the trailers and everything about it looked good and everything….and then came Ms.Keys. I didnt think that she would be as good as she actually was. The cool thing about this movie is that 3 or 4 different groups of people were going after the same guy. But none of them knew it. So in the end they ended up shooting each other and people died of course, it was a blood and guts kinda movie..It was really well made and i really enjoyed, i would definately watch it again.

B’s Review of Chris Pine;
I was really impressed with the character that Chris Pine played in this film, although he wasn’t singled out, and the character never really had a chance to develope, it was still really interesting to watch. I’m not sure how Id like any of this other movies, but this one was very well done.
I think that I was more interested with the character that Pine played in the film, rather than his acting. It was a very strange, but very entertaining film.

This movie slipped my mind for a while, I remember when I first heard of it and watched a couple trailers I was really into it, but then it seems to disappear for a while and I didnt hear of it agian until recently when i desided to watch it. Im glad that I did, and I wish I had have sooner.
This film is amazing. The woman are beautiful in their cultural robes and what not. The colours throughout this film were incredible, they were so vibrant, and goregous. This film did an amazing job depicting the problems that these people are having with children being sold for money…and being taken in for either prostitution, or for entertainment…to be mens dates or whatever. They didnt exactly sugar-coat anything in this film either, maybe a little..but they didnt try to make it seem as if they were trying to fix the problem as much as they were showing that this is whats happening and making people realize holy shit these poor young,young girls are being sold and forced to live places they dont want to live, away from their families especially..and they dont understand that they were sold as much as they think they were just taken. And they’re being forced to do things that they have no desire to do. But in the end these girls are brainwashed into thinking that they have to be a certain way, and they have to work to be beautiful when they were goregous to begin with. I like this film alot, and i would watch it again in a heartbeat.
Everything about this film is interesting, every scene and shot has a perfect motion. I didn’t really get into following the movie, not becuase it wasnt interesting, but becuase it just wasnt the right time for me to watch it.
I think if I watched it again in the near future I would have more respect for it. I look forward to seeing it again, I really enjoyed what I saw of it the first time.

I know that I’ve seen more films with Watanbe in them, I just can’t remember which ones. I love this actor though, I love all of the facial expressions that he makes, and all of the amazing roles that he can adapt to. Maybe it’s because he kinda looks like my uncle, but I just love watching his films. He really fit the part that he played in Memoirs of a Geisha well.

To be completely honest – this movie had me soo confused for so long. The guy was a cop but he was really a bad guy, and the other guy was a bad guy but was a cop?….what!?…I guess that means it was an alright movie. Definately a movie that made you think as well as pay attention. If you turned your head through-out any of it, it felt as it you missed the biggest part everytime. But dont get me wrong, its not as exciting as i may be letting on. Although it made you think and pay attention. The story never really came together for me, i was still left kind of questioning every bit of it. But if youre into that type of movie then i suggest this one, and if not…steer clear of this one!
I actually kinda enjoyed this film, I didn’t think that I was going to – but it surprised me a little. Leonardo DiCaprio had done a phenominal job in his recent films. The idea behind the film was entertaining and the filming was really plain – but it worked. Although a couple parts about it , mainly the racist refrences, although I know the meaning behind it and everything …. I just feel like we should have gotten to a place in society now that we dont need to entertain eachother with biast comments. Just a thought though.
The film was alright, and Ill definatly watch it again, worth the money to rent it!

A group of people, some who knew eachother previously, others who just met all suffer a car accident in a bus together in Brazil on vacation. The get to know eachother well when they all get druged and robbed. After that they try to find there way out of the country without money or passports – on there way they run into a guy who says that he’ll help them.
They deside that the smartest thing that they could do is put there trust into this one man, they follow him to his uncles house in the middle of the jungle.
They ended up with a crazy man who surgically removes kidneys and other organs and sells them….
The rest of the story is them trying to get away from him and his people.
Just like all the other pampered horror films based on young hot tourists travelling to other countries, having sex and ending with an expectedly high number of murders. It was really plain and boring, the only special thing about it was the landscape. The beautiful beaches and awesome underwater caves counter argued and beat out (in my opinion) the risk of travelling there. One thing about this film that was a little different from most others was the fact that the “big boss” did most of his dirty work himself, in most horror films theres only three common scenarios;
1. There’s a group of people lead by one main character, who’s in charge of everything – but always makes others do his work for him.
2. Solo – killer who never does anything with another person. Usually enjoys solitude and torturing his victims. In my opinion the creepiest of all.
3. And a large group of people with no boss at all – who are all just as stupid and life-less and eachother.
In my opinion this movie probably couldnt have been any better than it was cause the storyline was so flat.
One thing that really annoyed me about this movie was that it seemed like they were trying to make a point about how hard it is to get donations for organ transplants in most countries – but Im sure if you look into it the organs that they used in the filming of this movie were probably real ones. Practice what you preach, I mean unless the makers of this film don’t have any really issue with the problem, in which case – why make a film about it?
I greatly disliked this movie, it was just like B said, it was exactly like every other travelling movie. There were young people, obviously a pair that was related…almost like house of wax. There was nudity, there was blood, and guts. Not making for a very nice mixture..This film was one that was not even close to being worth watching at all…All in all, i hated this movie.

Armageddon had its certain qualities that kept it interesting – but in the end it was still just the American Patriotic Bullshit movie that it started out as. How many of these films do we need? The concept was interesting – completely irrelevant, but interesting. Ben Affleck was his regular old American Hero self , and Bruce Willis made his same weird faces and acted like an arrogant fool- I think when it comes down to the acting Liv Tyler could be the only one standing in the end. The effects and continuity was horrible – they kept going from being able to walk around fine in space to not being able to move – it was all really fake and boring.
It has its moments that almost make you wanna cry or show some sort of emotion and then you remember what your watching… Stupid American hero shit.
I had never ever watched this movied until a couple nights ago, and it wasnt all that people made it out to be. I heard soo many good things about and never bad. But the movie is horrible. How cliche is it to have your father sing a hit song and act in the movie. To me thats incredibly lame. I really only have one word for this movie and its lame. Thats all it was, the effects were horrid. Some of the acting was alright, but all the others…horrid.

This is an amazing film! Way better than The Corsican Brothers, but not quite the classic that Up In Smoke is. I really enjoyed watching this movie, it’s hilarious. I was laughing the entire time. Best part of the film: the waiting room at the welfare office – those extra’s are amazing actors. I could watch that one scene 10 times over again.
I love both Cheech and Chong – and I love the trouble they get themselves into. It’s such a perfect type of movie to watch if you wanna laugh.
This is definately as good as Cheech and Chong’s Up in Smoke, this was funny, entertaining and the extra actors were hilarious!…Definately a good movie, this is comparing it to Corsican Brothers (AWFUL MOVIE)…Very Enjoyable movie, from all that i can remember of it hahahah!
