I love most of the Cohen brothers films. For a fan of their work, I found the movie very entertaining. I don't understand why there is so much hate towards it. Gross out, slap stick, obvious in your face humour this movie is not. It's original (which is hard to find) and good.
Hard to follow. Watched Zoolander 2 just prior and it was head and shoulders better than that movie, but then again so was "Attack of the Giant Tomatoes"
I gave it a 1 because there is nothing lower then 1. Big disappointment with all the top billing actors. What a waste of time.
OK, maybe not the worst movie that I have ever seen but definitely one of the least entertaining. Probably about as entertaining as a dinner party at the home of some of the people that give it 5 stars and feel compelled to insult the intelligence of those who dare go to the theatre for entertainment purposes. gess itt wuz to intylectul fer mee.
Clooney and the rest of the cast are great. This is a clever inteligent comedy, but, the key word is INTELLIGENT... some of the reviewers on here are just too dumb to realize just how clever this movie is !
You need an IQ of 30 to enjoy this one. BAD!!! no intelligence in this one. How can one of the viewers rate himself so high? I guess it you want to sleep with alright music, which is the only thing on this movie, than go for it. Even the acting was not memorable. Even for free, would this movie be a lost time.
Worse than bad. Poor Clooney does he need so badly the extra money to lend himself for this? No story, poor acting especially Johansson. No smiles, no drama, no thrills.
How can anyone rate this higher than 1? Waste of money all around. Why did they produce it? Why did Clooney play in this poor movie? No idea.
We never liked Johannson and she is really bad here, so is the movie.
Smart and clever. Very well done attention to period details.
4 1/2 stars. I'm not sure why people are hating on this movie so much. This is an incredibly tightly made film. The attention to detail and clever dialogue are superb. The story is engaging and unpredictable. There are several memorable performances. Overall, I found this to be a highly entertaining movie. In fact, I think it's the Coen's most entertaining in quite awhile. I can see why people may have been disappointed if they were expecting a comedy similar to The Hangover or something like that, but calling this the worst movie ever made is bananas. Have some perspective people!!!
maybe the worst movie I have ever seen....please don't waste your money
I don't even know HOW this movie got past production..it is NOT funny, very stupid and has no depth or real good story. Avoid if you can
can you ask the theatre for your money back???? let me see...this month I have seen Room, Brooklyn, Joy, Danish Girl, Spotlight, all worthy of 3 to 5 stars....this may be the worst of all time,....no plot, a few good lines, but honestly what are Clooney, Feines, Johnannson lending their talent to this piece of junk
You will get more laughs if you stay home and watch the trailer.
By ordinary standards good, not great. By the high standards set by the Coen Bros., this is slight and just OK. Great moments as you'd expect from the Coens, but all in all, a disappointment
I fell a sleep twice in it.
I have seen a dozen movies this year....cant believe Clooney sold his soul to do this....just poor and disjointed
I got that it was typical Coen , I am older love the black and white oldies, I guess I just missed something , got bored after a couple of laughs. Wished I'd chosen something else!
Coens at their best... this is not for the quick cut all action no plot group however
You have to know what to expect from the Coen Brothers. The dry humour was great! It is meant for a mature audience for sure with opera music, synchronized swimming and a deep Russian song. No zombies, nudity or assault weapons killing hundreds here. Wonderful if your IQ is bigger than your shoe size. Way over the heads of the messy popcorn scattering, noisy, young men we experienced who could not stay seated or be quiet so others could enjoy.
What an educated funny movie this is, excellent .. The tongue-in-cheek dialectic critique of Hollywood is beyond belief funny . Again, you need a few cultural pointers to really enjoy the subtle humor.
Mediocre comedy that is not up to par for the Cohen Brothers.
So lame. The subtle humour doesn't save this movie. They tried to do too much and failed miserably. These guys can be funny, however they only managed a couple of funny moments. We were really disappointed.
this movie? is a piece of crap the acting (which was supposed to look bad) was so good, it looked bad. what a piece of crap. every cliché and nuance and lame line imagined in any old movie was here. still a piece of crap I couldn't get up and leave, I wanted to....... did I mention, this movie (even with the great soundbites and optical references to bygone cinema) is a piece of CRAP !
Best movie I've seen in a long time. There is a much deeper level that I guess a lot of people just aren't getting. The people who don't get this movie will probably enjoy Zoolander.
I love old movies but this was a big bore. Don't waste your money.
Worst movie ever....saw 3 couples leave an hour through the movie never to return.
worst movie I ever saw - boring to a point where we left mid-way...they only redeeming part is Tatum's song and dance number which he did perfectly.
Horrible. Don't waste your money. You might get hooked in by the casting line up, but it has NO story line, so captivation, and is over all boring to watch. I wish I could get my money back.
This was the WORST movie I have EVER seen in my life!!! I am disappointed that George Clooney, Channing Tatum and Scarlett Johansson even accepted the roles in this STUPID movie. I wish I could get my money and time wasted to watch this movie back.
This is the worst movie ever. I am an avid movie goer, I was constantly checking my watch to see when it was going to end. I can't even understand why these "movie stars" played in it, other than the almighty dollar. DO NOT waste your time....not one laugh in it. I spoke to other movie goers and they said the same thing upon leaving the theater.
I rate this movie a zero stars. As good Movie 47. That is to say stay away. The theatre contained few relatives with forced snickers. But that is all that this waste of time and talent could garner. Boring and stupid completely opposite of fast moving trailer.
God awful.. definitely an ask for your money back movie
Don't be turned off by the negative reviews; the movie sailed right over their heads! Clever and nostalgic, with the typical Cohen wry humour. If you're not well-read and aware of pop culture over the past 100 years, then you might find it boring. I suggest you go see a slapstick comedy instead, where the humour isn't subtle.
The worst movie I have seen in years. Dull. Boring. Trite and definitely not funny. Save your money. Awful. Horrible. Am I leaving anything out? Seriously, this is really, really bad!
A Coen brothers comedy. Enough said.
It has some moments but laughs were few and far between. the 50's genre was filmed well... It had potential but didn't have the laughs that the brothers have brought to their previous outings...
Terrible.... My husband and I were shocked at how bad it was. We have loved the brothers stuff in the past but this should not be listed as a comedy.. Nothing funny in this one. Best acting was from Josh Brolin .... I am giving it 1 star only
Great cast, great dialogue and the brilliance of the Coen's but their movies are not for folks that just want to be entertained for a couple of hours but can also think
The movie is clever, and saturated with nostalgia for the way things were. SIMPLE AND DIRTY. it's satirical message, as the vehicle of the seemingly investigative feel dances and weaves through a few dark moments of reality of women treated as objects and non American thought viewed as criminal. Wrapped in a easy to swallow package of a good looking film. Sorry folks it's not Broad general Ha ha. It's insider jokes, trust me you will get it years from now. Do not underestimate this movie.
Liked it. Relax and enjoy movie, kinda like Dick Tracy. 50's styles clothes, sets, sailor dance and song and communist group were all great.
What d disappointment! Pointless, humourless, total waste of time!
Epic fail. Very disappointing. Not remotely close to being funny.
What a disappointment. I had great expectations but the writing simply wasn't funny. Saw a few people sawing logs during the last 40 minutes. It could have been a great spoof but maybe it was just too 'inside Hollywood' and the humour escaped the rest of us. Save your money.
As a spoof of the Hollywood film making industry it was a clever concept. It has lots of big stars. Unfortunately, it's just not very funny.
Just horrible and I am older and still didn't get the humour, if there was any. I was so looking forward to this movie. Please don't go, see something else.
We just came home from watching this travesty. Some people actually walked out. My husband slept through half of the film. It was absolutely horrible...boring, tedious and totally without merit. George Clooney certainly won't be up for an Oscar this time. He, the writers, producers and co-stars should be thoroughly ashamed of themselves.
maybe the worst movie I have seen this year....a few chuckles from a audience who yawned for the most part....I get it Clooney is a great actor....but please...entertain me....!!!
