Thoughts: I’d like to organize a search party to go looking for Rob Reiner’s career. It’s been lost in the wilderness for so long that I think we can now officially call it dead. The man who gave us This is Spinal Tap, A Few Good Men, Misery, Stand By Me, The Princess Bride, and When Harry Met Sally… hasn’t had a hit for nearly two decades. Instead he’s given us a parade of groan-inducing snore fests that are big on talent but small on creativity. I will say that this looks better than his last few films…but when your last films were The Bucket List and Rumor Has It… the bar isn’t set too high. Freeman seems to be invested in the project rather than sleepwalking through his lines for the paycheck…so maybe this will be a return to form for both director and star who are both in desperate need of a kick in the pants.
