Funny funny funny
This movie is FUNNY! And the shots of San Francisco are beautiful. Josh Hartnett is very skilled at being funny. His co-star is a girl who has been taking lessons from the Winona Ryder School of Drama. I guess messy hair and a lilting dip of the head is acting.

Sure, there are problems with the craft, such as very noticeable editing problems, voices dubbed in the ADR that don't BEGIN to match the voices in the other shots, etc. If you aren't a filmmaker you might not notice, and in any case, you shouldn't care. The reason you shouldn't care is this is a feel-good, genuinely funny movie. So many movies purport to be funny, so few succeed. This one does.

I was raised as a Catholic and I found the whole Catholic theme amusing. Of course, in the Catholic family, one brother is a repressed Seminarian, while the other is a ... Semen-arian? This sex-obsessed guy gives up sex for Lent, and it just happens he works in a place with all these impossibly beautiful, sexy young women. The geeky guys at the workplace sit around and make bets on how long he'll last.

I am having fun making up the sequel for this movie in my head---- 40 Minutes- where he tries not to put his hands in his pockets for a whole 40 minutes...

Idris Elba Could Be Your Bartender ...

If he wasn't acting, that is. The "Turn Up Charlie" star relates to his character and shares the strangest jobs he's had. Plus, hear what it's like playing a villain in Hobbs & Shaw.
