Carol’s Movie 3/29/17

Carol Marshall

Carol Says: Ya know, reading about a movie is so different from what the movie really is. And, being a Rob Reiner movie, we thought this would really be good. We were disappointed.

The acting was good, so that is the good thing, but the movie is a downer. Charlie is an 18 year old addict and leaves rehab, just to go back to rehab and actually do better. But things go bad again, and at the end (spoiler) he is going to be OK. He is angry at his dad but has a good relationship with his mother. Charlie’s girlfriend is not doing too well, though.

So this is about Charlie and his addictions and going to rehab and getting out and going back in, etc etc. His anger at his dad and so on. No humor in this movie, and it is a Rob Reiner movie. Go figure.

Keeping up with the Joneses

What a funny, silly and delightful movie this is! In the first 10 minutes, I was not sure which way it was going….if I would make it through the movie or not. It starts off a little offensive, but that drops off and started taking shape and we just laughed our way through it. I think I might watch it again.

A couple moves into a neighborhood and another couple in the neighborhood thinks the newcomers, the Jones, are spies. And it just goes from there.

I thought the acting was good, and made the movie as good as it is. It is not meant to be the movie of the year but just something fun to watch. There are some quiet one liners that are funny – keep your ears open.
