Seriously? Â I guess its okay that all I want to do is mock this film since I am clearly not the target audience… but, super-spy gerbils? Â Really?
I managed to find passes to a screening of this film, and I’m glad I did. Â I’m not sure I’d want to pay for this one. Â Its not complete crap, and in fact it is quite enjoyable… solid performances by all the actors, and the dialog is decent enough, and I even thought the “secret” was clever. Â But it wasn’t very scary. Â In fact, most of the audience was laughing through much of the film. Â Sure, there were a couple of scenes that made you jump, and a couple of things that made you cringe, but it just wasn’t scary. Â A little creepy maybe. Â If I were you, trying to decide where to spend my hard earned wages this weekend, I’d hold off on Orphan and spend it somewhere else. Â Catch this one on DVD or cable.
The Ugly Truth:
“Tonight… we dine… in Heigl!” “This! Â Is! Â Dating!” Â Sorry, couldn’t resist. Â But if I have to admit to a man-crush, it would be Gerard Butler, even before the whole 300 thing. Â And I’ve liked Ms. Heigl since “Roswell”, so this movie already had two things going for it. Â Throw in the fact that I’m a sucker for battle of the sexes romantic comedies and you’ve earned my $10. Â I didn’t get to see an early screening of this film, and so I’ll be paying my way like everyone else this weekend. Â I don’t see any way this movie could possibly be disappointing.
