Last Segment Totally Destroys The FilmReviewed byccthemovieman-1Vote: 7/10

I really enjoyed this movie for the first hour. It was quirky and totally unpredictable, thanks to Pierce Brosnan's strange character, "Julian."

However, when Julian knocked on the door late at the night in Denver, Colorado, at the house of his buddy "Danny Wright" (Greg Kinnear), the film began to turn sour, and went down the dumper in a hurry. Julian now had overstepped his obnoxiousness and become unappealing. He had flirted with that throughout the first hour but always survived, but now he was downright rude and a pain in the butt. Making this really bad was Hope Davis, playing Danny's wife, "Carolyn." Her character, in a flash, went from devoted, nice wife and ultra- profane "who is THIS person?" and was insulting to any viewer with a brain. For (about) 20 years of marriage, she was clean-mouthed, and all of a sudden come a half dozen f-words out of her in about 20 seconds? That typifies the whole last segment of this film, which really ruined a promising story that was looking good up until then. In a word: it has been "entertaining."

It was a stretch from the beginning, however, that a straight businessman like Wright would ever give the time of day to a drunken, super-rude swine like Julian, but I went along with it because it was fun to watch despite a few questionable homo-erotic scenes. However, when the film takes an abrupt left turn in Colorado, it lost its appeal with characters that had zero credibility.

Puerile trashReviewed bykevin-477Vote: 1/10

I can't believe the glowing reviews I've read about this, er, 'film'. People saying it's the best comedy crime buddy movie they've ever seen? Never seen 'Get Shorty'? 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang'? Sorry - both are probably way too sophisticated and, yes, FUNNY for the likes of these people. Even the trailer for 'Dirty Rotten Scoundrels' was better than this tired, dragged-out, clichéd, third-rate waste of celluloid. Pierce Brosnan did his best with a film school undergrad script, and was mildly amusing for a while. But the joke was soon over. Okay, I know it was supposed to be a 'comedy' - but was there even ONE believable character here? The script had some good one-liners, but the narrative was about as dynamic as a stuffed duck. And that awful, awful scene when the Pierce Brosnan character turns up unannounced at Greg Kinnear's at Christmas. I can't even be bothered to write about it any more. Avoid.

The Matador, Truly awfulReviewed bymarkscarrattVote: 1/10

This film was truly awful. I don't know if it was meant to be funny but it wasn't. In fact I don't know what it was supposed to be. Early in the film we see Pierce Brosnan's character about to leave a hotel room having obviously spent the night with a lovely lady. She is asleep in bed whilst he is getting dressed. Before he leaves he decides to steal her nail polish and then goes to the bathroom to paint his toe nails. Why ??.We never see that girl again nor the toe nails and I don't really see the point.

Also throughout the film Brosnan hints at his characters supposed homosexuality and perverse sexual tastes, but nowhere does this get progressed in the film, and I was left thinking "why" "what" "where", and "when".

It is obvious that he is a hit-man/ assassin in decline but do you really expect that he would tell Kinnears character what his job was within 5 minutes of meeting him in a bar in Mexico.

To make matters worse they then both go to a bullfight and Brosnann decides to show Kinnear a few tricks of the trade by pretending to stalk and nearly assassinate an unknown local while he was on the toilet. In the process of doing this Brosnan drew attention to himself that any assassin no matter how washed up, would not do.

In summary this film was truly terrible and I don't see the point of it at all. I am not sure what it was supposed to be.
