Paramount's modern spin on Fatal Attraction is a thoroughly misguided attempt at recharacterising the story through the lens of mental illness.
We already helped with screenings in Toronto and Vancouver, but now it's time for our friends in Ottawa, Calgary, and Edmonton to enter for a chance to win one of ten pairs of passes to see The Way, Way Back on Monday, July 22nd for Calgary or Wednesday, July 24th for Ottawa and Edmonton, courtesy of Dork Shelf and Fox Searchlight!
Deeply funny and as uncomfortable as a forced vacation with the worst members of your family, The Way, Way Back is a summertime classic in the waiting.
Identity Thief is a movie so desperate for ideas to pad out it’s running time that there’s actually a scene involving snakes slithering into pants that I suppose the audience is supposed to pretend they haven’t seen a bazillion and one times before. Put simply the movie just doesn’t work, but what’s most heartbreaking about the whole endeavor is the fact that there’s no reason why a movie about identity theft mixing the talents of Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman couldn’t work.
