Other Movies Seen By This Director (0)
|07.06.14||DVD|| So Time Warner's fancy new cable modem is a total piece of shit and it's taking them 6 days to send someone out to service it so as a result my internet is spotty at best, non-existant at worst. Because of that, all my normal Internet-reliant forms of entertainment are unavailable (steam, netflix instant, etc.). What this means is that I've been staring at my dvd collection for about 45 minutes trying to pick a movie to watch. I settled on this because Molly's dad gave it to me years ago and it takes place in austin and stars Jeff Bridges.|
It's not a bad movie. I didn't realize it was written and directed by Robert Benton, who did one of my favorite low-key movies Nobody's Fool. Kim Basinger is really the star of this though which helps and hinders. Her Texas accent and screwball mannerisms kind of grate on me but it's counterbalanced by her mid-80s youthfull hotness. And Jeff Bridges is great as expected. I don't know why they don't make more action comedies... I guess we had Pineapple Express but compared to stuff like Romancing the Stone and Outrageous Fortune and 48 Hours it seems like a lost genre.
Anyway... scratch this one off the list. Not a bad movie at all
