NOW YOU SEE ME
I had NO idea what this movie was about when I started watching it. All I know that it was the biggest one to promote at work so I figured why the hell not I’ll watch it and see why it’s so “important.” I didn’t watch the trailer and I had no idea what actors were in this movie besides looking at the promo pic which included: Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco. Can I just say randomly that I had no idea that Dave Franco is James Franco’s brother. Let me explain, I had no idea what this actors name was I just saw his face on the promo pic. Thank you IMDB for this information. The other reason I figured out they were brothers right before making this post was I watched James Franco’s Roast last night and Jeffrey Ross mentioned Dave Franco and I was like NO WAY! Oh well. Also Jeffrey Ross is hilarious, but honey please loose the braids.
SO when I realized this movie was about magic I started grunting like honestly why am I watching this shit. An hour in I was intrigued and annoyed but overall I actually enjoyed it. The ending pissed me off even though I was caught off guard, but come on they could of came up with someone a little more mind blowing. Why does every movie have to be “OH MY GOD IT WAS HIM ALL ALONG.” Like no shit sherlock. I hope that didn’t spoil anything…
Love Isla Fisher! She is adorable and I’m glad there was at least one female role in this emasculating movie. Besides her Jesse’s character was quite pompous and irritating so every time he opened his mouth I just kept reminding myself of how good he was in The Social Network. And I LOVE Woody Harrelson! I don’t care! He was great in this movie! Kudos to him for picking a great role! This cast was awesome! THE HULK was in it! Mark Ruffalo! I’ve pretty much only seen him in The Hulk and that Blindness movie, but I have nothing bad to say. Also, Michael Caine! Batman’s Butler! LOVE him. Oh and I kinda have a girl crush on Mélanie Laurent she is adorbs!
From a Chick’s Perspective I give this movie a 4/5. I definitely won’t watch it again, but I will recommend friends to see it. I think I enjoyed it more not knowing the storyline or who was in it. Hello?!?! If I knew Morgan Freeman was in this movie I would of seen it in Theaters! Damn I need to pay more attention to movie releases.
Merritt Osbourne: Look into my eyes. Now, sleep! Just hang out there a sec. I’m picturing beach, cocktails, Florida?
Husband: Look, it was a business trip.
Merritt Osbourne: Maybe the oldest business…
Merritt Osbourne: You’re thinking of a woman’s name. A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J… J. Jean, Jane, Janet! Who, who is Janet?
Wife: My sister
Merritt Osbourne: Your sister
Merritt Osbourne: You weren’t away on business! You were away on Janet! Okay now she’s gonna get upset. Let’s move over here. You want this to go away?
Merritt Osbourne: Okay, now just pull out your wallet. Does uh $200 seem fair? Okay… And sleep! Now when I snap my fingers, you won’t remember any of this. And you, every time you even see or think of Janet, you’re going to picture me naked and that’s not a pretty sight.
I absolutely loved this part.
