Inspired by the Nancy Meyers hit romantic comedy What Men Want, this film follows the story of a female sports agent (Taraji P. Henson) who has been constantly boxed out by her male colleagues. When she gains the power to hear mens' thought, she is able to shift the paradigm to her advantage as she races to sign the NBA's next superstar.
Blake: the possessed-child genre continues, and in a stereotypical manner. Pretty much predictable from beginning to an ending, which someone without a writing or film background could have written in a more intriguing way. I found the movie such a joke a times, that I laughed out loud. If you're not familiar with this type of movie, watch it. If you are, see something else. 1.5 of 5 stars.
Blake: revenge is a dish best served cold? That's true here, with Liam Neeson! Ice-cold justice is served in this re-make about a hurting father taking vengence for the drug-related loss of his son. The action you expect with Liam Neeson is well delivered, plus dark humor, which adds a different element to Liam's mix. A hard cold and exact movie that earns 4 of 5 stars!
Blake: ah, my sources say the toys are ready to play, but not in the way this sequel should have gone. Yes, it's fun, families will watch, and the morals of the story continue, but just not as brilliantly as it's predecessor. Popcorn, humor, and money will be flying out of pockets for this 90mins of escapism. 4 of 5 stars
The chilly weekend will have theaters busy, especially with Cold Pursuit and The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part!
Enjoy a NEW movie this weekend!
