Friends meets Panto meets EspionageBy ChrisDowning (2 reviews) , 28 Sep 2013I just don't 'get' this sort of film. Its like the cast and director got a script and had a load of fun spending the backers money. Hey we got a load of money to do a film, let's do some tax breaks in the UK and Italy so we can go there as well! If building and maintaining careers is about choosing quality scripts and plots, and directors - well this is isn't it for Julia Roberts or Clive Owen. It truly feels like a film that has scammed the financiers so that everyone went home with a big cheque. I guess it all started with a poor script, that unfortunately for an industrial espionage film, must have been written by some retired 'Friends' script writers, or Christmas pantomine writers looking for summer jobs. What a waste of talent. But hey, smile, everyone got past pay day! Pity I didn't get paid for watching!
Meat and two veg?By Lizabo (2 reviews) , 17 Aug 2013With a great cast this film promised to be as traditional and tasty as a great British Roast...on consumption it was a 'meal' that completely lacked 'meat' and the two veg were soggy and indigestible!
old-fashioned funBy a customer , 12 Jul 2013A fun film to watch, with a plot that keeps you guessing and thinking that you might know what is happening, even if you don't. It's a superior Hollywood flic, and is enhanced by Roberts and Owen embracing their roles and providing enough on-screen chemistry to suggest they actually like each other...but not too much!
Yeh it's sort of OKBy SuperSaint (343 reviews) from Market Harborough , 24 May 2013However,given the cast I guess that I expected just a little bit more. Mostly predictable with a couple of twist and turns.
Good fun, light entertainmentBy pbee (2 reviews) , 29 Mar 2013Yes it's slick, yes it's entertaining, with plenty of twists and surprises which you may well have suspected all along. Don't expect earth shattering profundity - but you weren't anyway were you? Good fun, light entertainment.
