The A-Team = A+
If you think I'm basing my film review solely on Bradley Cooper's hair, eyes, smile, and body you're only 75% right, so shame on you. How dare you think I'm so shallow and easy to please! There is 25% of me capable of depth and appreciation that has nothing to do with the hotness of all things Bradley Cooper. Just because I'm a little distracted by this gorgeous hunk of man with his amazing laugh and gorgeous smile and dear God what were we talking about?
I expected the movie to be mediocre at best but it was start to finish excellent. It started strong, ended strong, and the middle was filled with explosions, bad jokes, and the insane. I want to live inside this movie.
Now, I should have prefaced all of this by saying I love action movies and I love raunchy humour. I love classic guy flicks. If your boyfriend has it on dvd, chances are I saw it in the theatres five times, dressed up like the lead, own the original and extended version, and can quote it verbatim. I think most movies could be improved with a car chase and unnecessary explosions. ps. Your boyfriend has a crush on me.
The weakest part of the movie for me was Jessica Biel. She's a pretty girl who is as exciting as stale toast. Honestly, if all that was required of this role was sex appeal and chemistry, I really think they should have backtracked in the phone book and gave Jessica Alba a jingle.
If you're looking for something to do this weekend, grab some gold chains and dill flavoured popcorn and remember...If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the A-Team. If nothing else you get to enjoy Cooper's hair for two hours, which is totally worth $11.
