Ashby is the kind of movie I tune into for some light entertainment – and yes, I was somewhat adequately entertained, I guess. Though mostly by Sarah Silverman’s character. She had the most fun dialogue. Nat Wolff did a good job with his outsider role and he too has a few fun lines.
The best moment in the movie for me has to be the scene towards the end between Mickey Rourke’s Ashby and Father Ted. The dialogue, delivery and emotion was just right.
Overall, I would have had a lot more fun if Ashby had focused more on Rourke’s story at the expense of a few of the other characters. Clearly that would make for a completely different movie so I guess my point is, something about Ashby and all the other character’s stories just didn’t quite come together particularly well.
Watch it only if you absolutely must. Also, Mickey Rourke’s smarter outfits are rather nice – so there’s that.
Happy Film Loving 🙂
