This movie was so-so, the idea was nice and could have been a great movie, but it was poorly written and not well thought out. For the type of movie this was it stays within a good amount of time, but yet the story felt really rushed. The story starts out with how you think this kid is going to be such a great guy, since he is an underdog, and when he grows up he is supposively this all nice guy who does everything for this hotel, but of cource if that was how he was then it wouldnt be an Adam Sandler character. So he just comes off as being a greedy, jealous, obnoxious mr funny pants. Guy Pearce is an actor who I indeed respect, but this movie just made him look kind of like a fool. This movie is fun to watch though and great one for kids and familys to go see, and it definitely had some funny moments.
6.5/10[/quote]Oh, I've seen that movie! I watched it on the 31st of December XD
Yeah...I liked the beginning, and a few parts... XD Overall, it wasn't really bad, just not something I'd really remember for a long time ^^'
Though, when Adam Sandler was driving in his car...-I can't remember when, before the sweets fell out of that truck? - he was listening to "Rock Me Amadeus", by Falco, an Austrian musician, who has already passed away. If he commited suicide or not is still discussed, but it's probable D:
Anyway, that he listened to that song surprised me XD
But THEN I watched the movie about Falco, it's Viennese, and I think "Amadeus" was a Nr.1 hit in the U.S.A. back then :o AS the only German song ever, but I was still surprised to hear it in "Bedtime Stories" XD
The last few movies I watched would be:
- [b]Patch Adams[/b]
A great movie...I don't know why the critics didn't like it D: It is often predictable...but it's the story of a true life, based on an autobiography, so...
Robin Williams is just a great actor!!! Me and my mom like him a lot ^_^
It was just a beautiful movie. A beautiful, true story!!!
I have nothing more to say, I'd just recommend everyone to watch it ^_^
- [b]The Mummy[/b]/[b]The Mummy Returns[/b]
Okay.. XD Well, it's not that bad. It IS gross at times...like, in the first part, when that scarab ate itself under the skin of the one man, the one who was in charge of having Brendan Fraser hanged, and killed him...well, I shut my eyes after I saw it crawling under the skin X_X
And those insects that crawled around in the mummy Imhotep's mouth...well yeah O_O
Oh, I didn't know that Brendan Fraser also acted "George of the Jungle" XD My brother and I watched that movie dozens of times as children :hehe:
The mummy wasn't THAT unrealistic for 1999 XD Rachel Weisz is really beautiful too ^_^ And the story was fast-paced, so I don't think anyone can say they'd be bored, when watching the film, even if they don't like it XD
THE MUMMY RETURNS: Oh, the Scorpion King was that guy from "Get Smart"!!! ^_^ You could obviously see he was computer animated, in the end, when Imhotep and Rick fought him XD But it's also a question of money! It was made in 2001. But you can't compare it with LOTR, I think, as that costed lots of money, I think...(LOTR is so great!!!)
Anack-su-namun, or what her name was...was alive in this part XD And Imhotep came back O_O
When Evelyn, Evy, died, I thought: "Oh, wow, that was unpredictable!", which was quite a pleasant change, as the rest was...well, yeah XD But then she came back to life O_O
Okay...those movies aren't bad...and when I'm at my dad's, we always go to the movie store to borrow movies. After we finished the "Bourne" series, we did watch a few others, but then my dad asked me if we should watch "The Mummy". So next, when he comes back from his 2 week stay in India, we'll watch The Mummy 3 (don't know it's name XD) :hehe:
