To be honest, I didn’t understand a whole lot. Maybe it was just me. Maybe it was because I only got 4 hours of sleep the night before. Maybe it was the fact that the movie was about nothing. Yeah, I said it; nothing.
The entire movie we’re following around a girl who feels she doesn’t fit into the world. We follow her around, her adventures, her misadventures, whatever. She has a best friend and the two become distant after they graduate high school. She tries to help an older man find a date. She hates her dad’s girlfriend. Nothing real important; just life in general.
Now, it’s not that I didn’t enjoy the movie. It was entertaining, sure. It was funny, yeah. Did it make any senser Was there any moral to the storyr Were the producers smoking crack when they thought this comic book would make a good movier
Would I see this movie againr Hell no. Would I recommend it to someone elser Sure, if they like movies about nothing. I can’t even think of something even remotely close to compare it to. It’s like watching one of those stupid reality shows where the plot goes nowhere and nothing ever makes any sense. Hey, shoot me.
With seven writers attached to this screenplay, you would seriously hope they could come up with something funny… and they did. From ripping off movies to TV shows and commercials, to just about everything else, you’d think they would eventually run out of material; nope. Okay, so I admit there were some parts I didn’t understand. Then there were also parts that simply weren’t funny at all. Either because they tried too hard for the joke, or the bit was just played out.
For example: Chris Elliott’s character proceeds to screw a turkey. Now, we all obviously know where that’s from. In another part, two characters race around in wheelchairs similar to the motorcycle scene from “MI:2.” Boring. On a happier note, rip offs which I thought were great were the Nike basketball commercial and the whole intro to the movie using “The Exorcist.” James Woods is just brilliant.
All in all, you want some laughs, you want to have a good time, you want to see most of the world made fun of, check out “Scary Movie 2.” Even being the poor white boy I am I still laughed throughout the whole thing.
The beginning wasn’t so bad. In fact, it was probably the best part. Telling the story about AI robots and what they are about. AI robots don’t feel love. So David is created. The first AI child who can love. A family who is losing their son to some disease becomes the first test parents for David. As luck would have it, their real son’s disease magically goes away and he comes back home. David and the real son soon start a sibling rivalry. The mother then freaks out (for some unknown reason) cause she can’t handle the AI robot. She takes him out to the woods and leaves him. Nice.
The next two hours of the movie is David searching for the Blue Fairy from the fairy tale Pinocchio. He believes the story is real and that the Blue Fairy can make him into a real boy so his adoptive parents will love him. It’s fairly boring, with the exception for Jude Law’s character; an robot male gigolo. Although I didn’t like his character and thought it didn’t fit well with the rest of the movie, he gave a good performance.
Near the end David finds out the secret behind his creation in that he was simply a test robot for a new product. They are mass producing other David’s, as well as a female counterpart, for parents who are unable to have children of their own. David then freaks out and now is on an even stronger mission to find the Blue Fairy.
Something stupid ends up happening and we find out the entire thing was planned by aliens eons ago. Wait, did I miss something herer What the hell do aliens have to do with this movier Spielberg really pissed me off with this one. Having to dig up the aliens once more. That’s it. I’m done. Movies that have nothing to do with aliens that suddenly become movies that have to do with aliens piss me off.
