When Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin team up for a comedy, hold onto your britches, because you’re going to need a grownup diaper by the time this is over!
As a little kid, I always thought grownups were proper and their sense of humor fades, but that isn’t right at all. When Zach Braff took on this film, he knew the casting director did the job right. There is no better choice for a cast for a film of this magnitude.
A trio of men who had been friends forever grow sick and tired of taking it up the rear by the big companies who sucked the life out of them in the first place – from the company they worked at forever to the banks. They must decide to take it lying down or climb up on the mechanical bull for one final ride, and you know what they choose. It’s that ride that lets you know not to let your guard down with grandma and grandpa – you never know what they’ll do next. Rob a bank? Perhaps.
Until you see the movie, catch a glimpse of what makes it so damned funny.
In my book of 10 stars — this film gets a fairly secure 8.
This all-star cast of Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich, and Helen Mirren can only possibly be outdone by one thing, but I have never died and lived to tell about it.
Frank Moses, better known as Bruce Willis, lives in his blue house, with a sad blue interior, and everything, not short of the face on his watch is blue. He calls to speak with a social security worker about the growth of his avocado plant. What a sad life, right? Unless you expect the parting of the Red Sea, Moses isn’t going to let you down.
Have no fear because the reason this movie is Red is because it is nothing at all like the beginning. These actors play off each other so well you’d think they celebrated the coming of each year at backyard barbecues together, and the script definitely helps.
This movie is a TEN STAR film in my book, and I guarantee it worth your time and money. If you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for?
