Hello and Happy Mad Fat Friday!
Ace Jones here picking up from where I left off last Mad Fat Friday, when I was facing one helluva of a decision-making crisis because I simply could not decide which of two heavily anticipated movies to see first: The Campaign or The Bourne Legacy. Well, needless to say, after much thought and contemplation, I finally purchased a ticket. And for what? –drum roll please –The Bourne Legacy! And as soon as I had the pleasure of seeing Jeremy Renner climb out of that icy cold Alaskan swimming hole, I knew I’d made the right decision. So let me tell you about that…
The first half of The Bourne Legacy was everything I wanted it to be. Action, mystery, danger, suspense, extremely hot and badass men! All of that in addition to a nutcase who might or might not have been brainwashed, a burning house, crazy people willing to kill to keep secrets, and Edward freakin’ Norton! It was off to an illustrious start and I truly loved every minute up until it, much to my disappointment, it turned into a Bourne rerun. The “assets” in this series never fail to disappoint me and I pretty much want to have sex with every last one of them, but when the asset-hotness was sent to terminate target-hotness, our beloved Aaron Cross, well, that’s when it got repetitive. From that point, things turned extremely unbelievable faster than Aaron Cross flew his motorcycle down a handrail. I mean seriously, only Wiley Coyote could survive such a ridiculously long and elaborate motorcycle chase no matter how many little blue power-up pills and/or stem treatments were had beforehand. And then the scenery at the end reminded me a bit too much of a scooter shop on the edge of the Aegean Sea. But despite all of that, I still very much enjoyed the film because I very much enjoy looking at Jeremy Renner.
Okay, so being the good rule-abiding sister that I am (or maybe I just needed a cheeseburger), I didn’t double dip at movies last Friday. I clocked back on Saturday to finally see…
The Campaign! And it was glorious! From start to finish, I loved every minute. It was SO funny and proved to be even better than the previews suggested and the previews were freakin’ awesome! I laughed my fat ass off from beginning to end and I’ll probably go see it six or eight (or maybe one or two) more times while it’s still in theaters. The entire cast of this movie was marvelous. Of course, Will Ferrell and Zack Gala-whateverhis-flalacki-nameis killed it as Cam Brandy and Marty Huggins. And my boyfriend, Jason Sude-gimmea-kiss, was off the effin’ chain funny. But I expected all of that. What Marty Huggins and I didn’t expect, however, was a surprisingly funny Dylan McDermott popping up in the fray. And then the wives, that hot chick that played Rose Brandy was, in my totally unprofessional opinion, sheer perfection. And Marty’s wife Mitzi, played by Sarah Baker who is now one of my new favorite actresses ever in the history of the world, along with his two little weird-ass kids was nothing short of comic excellence. And their “Family Night” was a dang flippin’ hoot! Love that odd ball bunch! Love this goofball movie!
Bottom Line: Not a thing wrong with this film. Well played, Willie F. and Zach G-money, well played indeed!
Okay, so now I’m off to see the Expendables 2! Geriatric Sexiness at its best! Woo Hoo!
