So I’m no movie critic but as comedian Dane Cook points out, we all seem to be when it comes to watching previews, or in my opinion, when we’re watching any movie.
I thought I’d give it a go as a critic after watching Knight and Day starring Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz this past weekend. While I can’t say it was an amazing movie and suggest you run out and see it, I do think it’s worth watching. As a date movie, it was perfect. Corny, yes, but enjoyable for both me and my husband. Tom Cruise ran around with his hand on the trigger of his gun, shooting up more than his share of the secret agents who were not-so-secretly stalking him. All this action was just enough to distract my husband from the cute love story and innocent antics of Cameron Diaz. Her sweet smile and her small-town thinking were enough to keep me watching; wondering what was going to happen to her next. A little too much action in movies and I tend to zone out, wondering about what I will wear the next day or how long it would take to run and get some more snacks. But this mix of action and comedy, cluelessness, a little love and extreme situations had me pleasantly engaged and surprised. It’s cute.
I think leaving the theatre smiling is a good thing so hopefully renting this one will leave you curled up on your couch with a smile on your face.
Seen any good movies lately? Got any movie reviews?
