I watched this last night with the boyfriend. It was a random movie that he suggested and to be honest I really didn’t want to watch it. After seeing Mark Whalberg in Transformers I just got annoyed by his acting, but surprising he was really good in this movie. Although that dark hair he had made him look like Edward Scissorhands at times.
I loved that Jessica Lange played his mother, because I have an obsession with her. She is just a brilliant actress. Other than that it was an OKAY movie. I’m glad Mark is doing more serious roles.
Also I was kind of annoyed by Brie Larson’s role. I don’t know whether it was her acting or just her facial expressions that pissed me off. She may be a good actress, but I did not enjoy her in this movie at all.
From a Chick’s Perspective 2.5/5. I f someone asked should I see this? I’d say if you have nothing better to do then sure. It had a great ending and that’s rare in movies nowadays.
