Difficult to watch Helen Hunt
This post isn't intended to just attack Helen Hunt but its truly difficult to watch her. Im not sure what shes done with her looks but knowing what she looks like from all of her past movies to this movie is jarring. While she may not be a favorite of mine shes played some great parts my favorite being in As Good As it Gets. Her face is emotionless, stiff & shes unrecognizable in many shots. Theres a scene where shes trying to be uplifting to her son but it comes across flat & scripted because there's nothing on her face no emotion. I truly think she hurts the film but im sure her name was a big get & initially helped.
The story is a tad silly but it could of been better w/better acting. John Leguizamo was fine & Tye Sheridan was somewhat convincing & funny at times. I did believe Ana de Armas. Overall watchable but theres many other films to see before needing to watch The Night Clerk.
