Knight and Day (2010)

Director:

James Mangold

Starring:

Tom Cruise

Cameron Diaz

Plot:

A young woman gets mixed up with a disgraced spy who is trying to clear his name.

Review:

I’ve watched this movie twice and I still don’t know if the characters are crazy. If they are then I think the movie is asking the question, is crazy something you can catch.

Tom Cruise is a spy that uses Cameron Diaz to get past airport security. She ends up getting pulled into his crazy life and eventually catching the crazy. Or maybe he just brings what was already there to the forefront, not sure.

In all fairness, she tries to escape multiple times, but he repeatedly drugs her and she eventually just accepts her fate. Then decides if you can’t beat them best join them so she starts pulling her own crazy shit.

Honestly, the movie is odd because of how Tom Cruise decided to play the character. Maybe he was trying to make it very different from Mission Impossible but still remain a badass, I’m not sure. He was just odd and Diaz just went from there.

3/5

Annie (2014)

Director:

Will Gluck

Starring:

Jamie Foxx

Quvenzhané Wallis

Cameron Diaz

Plot:

A foster kid, who lives with her mean foster mom, sees her life change when business tycoon and New York mayoral candidate Will Stacks makes a thinly-veiled campaign move and takes her in.

Review:

I liked the story line and the way this movie was shot, but I liked the songs better in the original. The casting was good, though, to be honest Jamie Foxx wasn’t the best singer. I was also a little annoyed with the way they handled Hannigan.

***Spoilers***

At the end Hannigan has a change in heart and tells Stacks, Jamie Foxx, what she’s done and that the people taking Annie away aren’t her parents. I liked it better when Hannigan was a villain and didn’t change her character because Annie was so adorable. After how many years of being a horrible foster mother, this situation finally changes who you are? I don’t think so.

The movie was okay, but because of that I’m lowering it half a star.

2.5/5

Director:

Jake Kasdan

Starring:

Jason Segal

Cameron Diaz

Rob Corddry

Plot:

A married couple wake up to discover that the sex tape they made the evening before has gone missing, leading to a frantic search for its whereabouts.

Review:

Basically an ad for the iPad and Apple products, which I hate, but I won’t get into that.

This movie teaches an important lesson that everyone should learn. Something, something, internet security, something, something, privacy settings and sync options, blah.

Oh my god that kid is the biggest asshole in the world. Seriously needs to get the shit beat out of him. He did not get what he deserved.

The wise old porn dude was a bit creepy. Kind of funny, but creepy.

Also they really didn’t learn the ultimate lesson. Once something is on the internet it’s always there.

2.5/5

The Other Woman (2014)

The Other Woman (2014)

Director:

Nick Cassavetes

Starring:

Cameron Diaz

Leslie Mann

Kate Upton

Plot:

After discovering her boyfriend is married, Carly soon meets the wife he’s been betraying. And when yet another love affair is discovered, all three women team up to plot revenge on the three-timing S.O.B.

Review:

The other woman is a good title for this. You’d think in a movie where a woman finds out her husband is cheating she would be the main lead, but she nope.

I liked the movie up until the end. I thought the scene with the cheating husband running into glass walls/doors was stupid and pointless. I also found it hard to believe that Leslie Mann’s character was smart enough to be a CEO or multimillion dollar corporations.

The movie was ok. Just ok.

3/5

Gambit (2012)

Director:

Michael Hoffman

Starring:

Colin Firth

Cameron Diaz

Alan Rickman

Plot:

An art curator decides to seek revenge on his abusive boss by conning him into buying a fake Monet, but his plan requires the help of an eccentric and unpredictable Texas rodeo queen.

Review:

This was a cute movie with Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz but that’s pretty much it. Diaz’s southern accent was a bit grating however since it was a Texas accent it didn’t bother me as much as it normally would. Yes there are different Southern accents.

Honestly the movie was just eh and started out a bit boring. It wasn’t until the end that you got a payoff. So the movie ended great but it didn’t really make up for the rest of the movie, it just meant I left with positive thoughts.

2.75/5

P.S.

Alan Rickman is naked in this movie.
