I didn’t thinks movies this bad were still being made
There are a lot of name actors in this. I have to think it was a payday for them. Each coasts on their cliche persona rather than actually acting. The movie was somewhat enjoyable if you just want to waste some time.
Twenty years too late for this non starter?…..
Duke is the manager of a luxury Palm Springs retirement resort, Villa Capri.
It’s Christmas in the desert, and Duke’s the big man on campus, until charming former military man Leo arrives and threatens to become the new alpha male.
When regional director Suzie shows up to look into some improper finances, both men turn on the charm to assert their status as top dog.
But what starts as a friendly rivalry, turns serious when men from Duke’s past come back to haunt him, and kidnap Suzie in the process. Putting their rivalry aside, Duke and Leo come together to rescue Suzie, stop whoever is trying to kill them…….
Twenty years ago, this would have been a more prolific film, everyone who is in it could have easily had their roles, and more than likely, it would have had more work put into the writing and ultimately been something a little more edgier than it’s finished product.
There’s no need to waffle on about the cast, they are all brilliant in their own right, but here, they are clearly on autopilot to pick up an easy pay check, and to enjoy a well earned holiday.
Jones plays every character he ever has in a comedy, you can tell this because he spends the majority of the film in a silly hat and sunglasses, Freeman plays the dude with swagger, and Russo is nothing more than a plot point to get the two male leads to have a little banter.
Shelton has made some wonderful films in his career, but of late, he’s gone way off track, and this has to be one of his worst efforts.
It’s never funny, the action is as lethargic as it’s cast, and it’s biggest problem is that it’s too laid back for its own good, relient on the cast and the one sheet to draw in the grey pound.
Ironically, it never gets started, its twenty years too late, and you know when the most exciting part of a film consists of a fat man sitting on a tub with a snake in it, there’s little to save this bomb.
