Accordingly, I watch a lot of foreign films. It's not because I'm intellectual or snobbish (although I resolutely am), but simply because I won't know a damn thing about them and subsequently have no expectations or preconceptions. Every now and then though I do like to watch something in English though.
A while back, my friends and I wanted to watch a film to round off an evening together and we were a bit stuck. Luckily I remembered I had "Foolproof" lying around.
|Oh, Ryan Reynolds. He's so dreamy|
It's a low-key comedy about heists. There aren't any laugh-out-loud moments, but there are some nice little quips and jokes that will please you and it's all kept serious enough that you're drawn in. Now it may be a heist movie, but that's not going to put a girlfriend off. There's enough in it for one of the members of the weird gender to maintain an interest. Heck, it's even light-hearted enough that you can watch it with kids.
|King's knight to king's pawn breakfast cereal fire escape. Huh?|
|My little grey cells say that I'm gonna cut you up if you don't do the blag, you muppet. D'accord?|
|I was going to make a hilarious Angry Birds joke, but, y'know, meh...|
Y'know I've just managed to convince myself to watch it again. End of review.
Here's a trailer. Don't watch it. Just get the film.
