I figured it would be good to just veg in front of a no-brainer type movie that night but I found myself more annoyed than anything. Both Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz were pretty likable, but there were a lot of errors in the story and the ending was VERY predictable. Not recommended.
Last night we watched this:
OMG, can't say enough good things about this movie. The acting was some of the best I've EVER seen. Christian Bale was almost completely unrecognizable as the older crack-addicted brother. The mom, played by Melissa Leo, was also amazing. Both of them won Oscars for their roles.
The bigger surprise for me was Amy Adams, who played the girlfriend. I guess I never really thought of her as a "great" actress but she is MUCH more than a pretty face. I LOVED her in this role!
It's not too often I'm able to post movie reviews, since I don't have a whole lot of time to watch movies. Of course these are all older ones because there's no WAY we can ever get to a theater! If you haven't seen any of these films, hopefully these reviews will help.
