Ok, so the other day my husband and I decided to rent some movies from Blockbuster. We haven’t done this in ages considering the last time we forgot to return them and were charged like forty something dollars. But we have been in the process of moving out of our apartment and the TV was gone, the Xbox 360 was packed away and we didn’t even have a bed. So, we rented two comedies to watch on the laptop on one of the last night we were there. One of the movies was a complete disaster and waste of time. You Don’t Mess with the Zohan. I don’t even know what to say abou this movie. I hated it. That is all that comes to mind when I think of it. And since this is a blog of all things nice and wonderful in my life I will refrain from going on any further about it.
Now, the other movie we rented was called Ghost Town starring Ricky Gervais (from The Office), Tea Leoni, and Greg Kinnear. This movie started off a little stiff but the full beauty of the movie was slowly ripening in the the comic genious of Ricky Gervais’ interaction with Tea Leoni. Now, I did not know what to expect from Ms. Leoni but she felt so real, and composed but also just off enough to be the perfect counter weight to Gervais comedic style. Watching those two was like a breath of fresh air. The whole movie was quite enjoyable and didn’t have the same over the top feel of a lot of movies these days. The plot was original too and even though a bit silly with the whole seeing ghosts thing, it was placed in the back of my mind because all I cared about was seeing Ricky’s character Bertram Pincus, get the girl.
Not the best movie ever made but a really fun and satisfying movie. And, if you are a fan of Ricky Gervais you have to see him in this.
