“So you’re telling me you made a porno where the plot is the point?”
Definitely better than I expected. For a while I was taken aback by the raunchy description of this as I thought I wouldn’t enjoy it that much, but from the second it begins it’s hard to stop watching. I rarely find good comedies that I enjoy completely, not necessarily because they’re bad, but because comedy has never been my favorite genre as it’s not the easiest to pull off, making some of them fall flat for me. Thankfully though, this was a nice surprise; its writing and a plot that never takes itself so seriously make this so much fun to watch. As weird as it gets at times, it never reaches a point were it becomes dull or uninteresting, instead it continuously grows more and more entertaining as it goes. The nice combination of comedy and (really cool) action scenes was a great balance and made it much more exciting.
Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling were a surprisingly good match and nicely complimented each other with their performances, which along with the rest of the ensamble became the highlight of the film.
