The Intruder

My husband was so excited about this movie from its trailers that I promised him we would go when it opened. So on Friday night May 3rd there we are in the theater to see “The Intruder”.

Scott (Michael Ealy) and Annie Russell (Meagan Good) decide its time to move away from the hustle and bustle of city life and purchase a home in the country where they can start a family.
Scott gets a line on a beautiful country home with lots of acreage. Scott and Annie go out to check out the home. The owner, Charlie Peck (Dennis Quaid) is there and after some discussion he hesitates to sell the property. The Russell’s decide to leave, but at the last minute Charlie has a change of heart.
Scott and Annie purchase the property, move in and make many changes. This seems to upset Charlie Peck. The story unfolds from there…

The problem with “The Intruder” is that the plot is short and there is really nowhere to go with it, but there is an attempt to stretch it out. You know what is eventually going to happen, you just wonder how long it’s going to take. This makes the movie painful to watch.

There is a more detailed back story behind the character Dennis Peck, but it’s not fully developed in this movie. This forces you to draw your own conclusions.

There are some small thrills and chills, but nothing to really make the movie suspenseful. There is also some light-weight drama, but it too is fluff. Last by not least the ending is strange and abrupt.

The best element in the movie is Meagan Good. She is beautiful and the wardrobe she wears in the movie is fantastic!! Unfortunately that’s not enough to make it worth paying to see “The Intruder”.

“The Intruder” is best viewed on Cable.

This is a 1 Star Movie!!

The Perfect Guy

“The Perfect Guy” is a case of “Been There, Done That, Seen It!” Good looking actors trapped in a bad script in a not so good looking movie.
A successful lobbyist, Leah Vaughn is tired of her current romantic situation, so after Leah parts ways with her current beau, Leah meets a very charming stranger.
After a while Leah’s former beau re-enters her life. Soon after she finds herself wondering who to trust and who to fear. The story unfold from there…

As a stated previously good actors, bad movie. Although the end is white-knuckled intriguing. I really expected “The Perfect Guy” to be different from movies like “Fatal Attraction” etc…The movie makes no attempt to be different. What a shame and a waste of actor talent

This is a 1 Star Movie!

Think Like A Man Too

This was the highly anticipated sequel to the 2012 hit “Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man”. Well as often goes a sequel is usually not as good as its predecessor. “Think Like A Man Too” is such a sequel.

Picking up where they left off from two years ago the couples head to Las Vegas for a wedding celebration. Their plans go awry when their various misadventures turn into trouble and they all land in jail. The story unfolds from there…

Instead of being funny, Kevin Hart is annoying and irritating in the movie. I was hoping that someone in the movie would slap him. There is being funny and then there is being raunchy. Kevin was just plain raunchy.
The story is somewhat predictable, but there are a few unexpected surprises. The movie is silly and just plain stupid. The first installment was very good.

“Think Like A Man Too” is disappointing… I would only spend money seeing this movie if you have absolutely nothing to do this weekend.
Otherwise wait for DVD, Blueray or Cable

This movie is worth 1 1/2 stars

About Last Night

“About Last Night” is a “Must See” Hilarious Relationship Comedy!

This is a re-make of the 1986 “About Last Night” that starred Demi Moore and Rob Lowe. This up-to-date version has move comedy and raunchiness to it thanks to Kevin Hart.

This new installment closely follows the ups and downs of two couples as they try to figure out what they each want out of a relationship that starts in a bar and moves quickly to the bedroom. One couple has HUGH sexual chemistry right out the gate while the other couple takes things a bit slower deciding to test their relationship by moving in together. The story unfolds from there…

The movie is funny, hilarious, raunchy and entertaining. Kevin Hart is an absolute nut! There is plenty of male and female eye candy throughout the movie. I love the sound track, it includes James Brown at the beginning.

The one small down side is I feel that Paula Patton cannot “Act”. Every time I see her in a movie outside of Mission Impossible Ghost Protocol, I feel ill. She gets these parts to portray a “Sex Pot” and she’s not very convincing. I feel she is trying too hard and it comes across on-screen. Thank heaven she was only in a few scenes.

I would like to point out that this movie is rated “R” and should be. There is sexual content and sexual profanity throughout the movie. “About Last Night” is not suitable for anyone under 17.

“About Last Night” is definitely a “Date Night” movie. Go see it!
