Plot:

Devoted lifeguard Mitch Buchannon butts heads with a brash new recruit, as they uncover a criminal plot that threatens the future of the bay.

Review:

I never really watched the TV show, it was a bit before my time, but I felt in the mood for some stupid fun and it really delivered. The show isn’t deep, it’s very over the top, and it’s filled with people in swimsuits. Efron looked pretty bad, steroids are bad people, but the female cast was gorgeous. Sure their swimsuits were impractical but whatever, boobs people!

Anyway, Mitch, Dwayne Johnson, takes his job as a lifeguard super seriously and because he’s charismatic and nice people follow him and do the same.

Explosions! Slow Mo Running! Penis Joke!

3/5

Identity Thief (2013)

Identity-Theft

Director:

Seth Gordon

Starring:

Jason Bateman

Melissa McCarthy

Plot:

Mild-mannered businessman Sandy Patterson travels from Denver to Florida to confront the deceptively harmless-looking woman who has been living it up after stealing Sandy’s identity.

Review:

So many awkward moments. So many. Also snakes. Big snakes.

Was I supposed to feel sorry for her? I feel like they wanted me to feel sorry for her but I just couldn’t. She fucked up her life and put herself in the situation. She was a thief and ruined people’s lives. He knew better and it pissed me off that he let her draw him into her world.

The end redeemed it up to a two instead of a one.

2/5
