Second Act insults its main character as its two storylines trip over each other.
People say that there’s no more creativity in Hollywood. And, with everything from Oldboy to RoboCop getting remade, who can blame them? Especially when some remakes are remakes of remakes of remakes. Like A Star Is Born.
Ethan Hawke’s ‘Blaze’ celebrates the life and times – and music – of an unsung country hero.
Fans of Keanu Reeves (John Wick) and Winona Ryder (Black Swan, Experimenter) must have been saying a prayer each night, asking for a reunion of the decades-long offscreen friends who haven’t been seen together on screen since The Private Lives of Pippa Lee in 2009. Before that, they starred together in A Scanner Darkly and, quite possibly their most famous pairing, in Francis Ford Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula (way back in 1992). Fans prayers have been answered since Reeves and Ryder reunite in Destination Wedding, a romcom where they each represent very dysfunctional yet oh-so-relatable people who find themselves stuck with one another simply because neither wants to be at a destination wedding. And honestly, neither should have gone, but that’s obvious from the first act. It’s what happens after that matters.
