this was a movie i knitted to. it's a movie that you can sit and watch on your unintelligent couch, in your unintelligence and soak it in like a sponge. there are stupid questions, like if gerard butler was so stinkin' smart and a brilliant "tactition" how did any of the ending make sense? i could have done with a few more crazy assainations. more brains and explosions please. there is also something about jaimie foxx that makes me want to slap him in the face. dude, you're not that cool. remember you used to play a really ugly, stupid chick in a tube dress on a comedy skit show. it's that arrogance vibe. it wafts off of others too (i.e. ben affleck, ll cool j, tom cruise, just to name a few) i don't know. it seemed like it tried a little too hard and then had nothing left for an ending. jaimie foxx did learn a valuable lesson though, folks. and isn't that what it's all about?
