Me Time,director John Hamburg’s latest comedy about a dad who reluctantly decides to spend his me-time reconnecting with a childhood friend, does have some memorable scenes.
To put it another way, I wasn’t feeling great about Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg’s latest buddy comedy until the scene with Sonny (Hart) and the mountain Lion cub about 35 minutes into the screening. Said scene is fun and guaranteed to have your full attention while you find yourself happy to be simultaneously scared and amused.
There are other amusing moments scattered in Me Time. I just can’t say that I was adequately engaged by most of what happened as the movie played. Turns out that the story and how it’s written/ executed didn’t quite prove to be new or exciting enough for me.
Furthermore, I found it hard to see Wahlberg as his character. And I’m half convinced that the story might have been better suited to characters at least a decade younger. Perhaps that way, a few of their choices might have proven more believable.
I still feel that a Hart and Wahlberg movie is a good idea. Me Time just wasn’t the right film.
In addition to the mountain lion moment, other highlights include the dialogue of the characters played by Andrew Santino, Jimmy O. Yang, and Shira Gross’s Dorit.
Give Me Timea chance if you must. You may find that it holds your attention far better than it did mine.
Kevin Hart, Alfre Woodard, DeWanda Wise and Lil Rel Howrey are the stars of director Paul Weitz’s new drama, Fatherhood.
Based on a true story, Fatherhood follows a father who has to raise his baby girl as a single dad, following the untimely death of his wife.
Ten words: ‘I did not see that coming, and I love it!’
I’m moved and so excited to watch Hart do well in this role; the kind of part that seems so perfect for him. Then there’s Melody Hurd, who also seems great in the role of Hart’s character’s young daughter.
Paul Alexander Désiré, Rodney Alexandre, Christine Lan, Ryan S. Hill, John Iziomon, Ines Feghouli, Christopher Hayes, Julian Casey, Teneisha Collins, Holly Gauthier-Frankel, Rachel Mutombo also star.
The Upside is a remake of French film The Intouchables (2011), the story of the relationship between a wealthy paraplegic and an unemployed man with a criminal record who’s hired to help him.
Bryan Cranston, Kevin Hart and Nicole Kidman star while Neil Burger directs…
There’s no denying it, The Intouchables is a great movie and could have done without a remake. At the same time though, I think I may actually have fun seeing how different this remake is to the original. I could also be wrong about that last statement but I don’t mind finding out. Furthermore, I want to see what comedian Kevin Hart can do in a more dramatic role.
Julianna Margulies, Golshifteh Farahani, Tate Donovan and Aja Naomi King also star.
Four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji‘s world – pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. They must beat the game to return to Planet Earth with their lives. Directed by Jake Kasden, the stars of Jumanji– Welcome To The Jungle are Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan…
All I remember about Robin Williams’ Jumanji (1995) is that the characters sported khaki attire and ran away from stuff in the jungle. This trailer looks very promising and I’m most excited about the humour.
