This was a pleasant surprise. I really didn't know what to expect, butwhatI got was a very intelligent movie with more than enough twists and turnstokeep things rather unpredictable. It took a little too long to geteverything set up properly, and it perhaps had one twist too many, butoverall, it w...
When I decided to see the movie, I didn't expect much of it, not morethan a level of an usual Saturday night entertainment. But to mysurprise, the movie, which first appeared to be a usual sentimentallove story, evolved into a decent thriller. Directing is very good atthis point, characters are quit...
I just picked Best Laid Plans up at the video store simply because there wasnothing that looked better. Well, even though this isn't a great film, itwas probably better than all those other videos in the store thatday!Best Laid Plansd is a dark crime thriller about Nick (Alessandro Nivola) whoneeds ...
Screenwriter Ted Griffin takes a page out of the David Mamet book with thisstory of the things we do for love and money, and how desperation has a wayof leading even the most forthright among us into regions beyond the known. And the fact that there is no such animal as a sure thing is pointedlyexp...
Long live Mike Barker! This fairly fresh feature director has pulled offoneof those rare tributes to the film noir scene, which once coloured themoviescene in the past. There have been worthy efforts, but this one seems tohave it all right. The movie starts as most movies from Mike Barker start.Circ...
Like the title might suggest, I'm sure there were some great ideas behindthis movie, but they got lost trying to come together. It's a fairlywatchable thriller for most of the running time, mostly due to Nivola andWitherspoon giving muted performances. But the problem with this kind ofthing is that ...
In brief this film should have done better than it did. The cast aregood, the cinematography is very pleasing. The sets and costumes aregreat.The soundtrack is also pretty good. Really good story that improves the more you watch it. At least youwill think a little bit during and after the film as so...
This is basically an idiot-plot movie. It is a succession of forks in theroad for various characters. At each fork the character is offered two ormore choices. One is normally by far the easiest, sanest, and most obviouschoice, which would almost certainly remove him from harm's way, and ofcourse, e...
Lissa (Reese Witherspoon) accuses Bryce (Josh Brolin) of rape, and thenthe film unfolds in interesting ways as we see how Nick (AlessandroNivola) plays a part in her past and their future.The film relies on the universal desires for love, sex and money. Brycejust wants to get laid, Lissa pretty much...
SPOILERS - Note to self: Boyfriend gets suckered into being the driver for$40,000 drug heist, turns out to be fake, all were in cahoots to get $20,000of his inheritance to help pay college tuition, inheritance was actuallyzero, thinking he was really in trouble he and girlfriend (Witherspoon)attempt...
(Note: Over 500 of my movie reviews are now available in my book "Cutto the Chaise Lounge or I Can't Believe I Swallowed the Remote!" Get itat Amazon.)This mostly forgotten thriller starring Reese Witherspoon (Lissa) andAlessandro Nivola (Nick) suffers from a mightily contrived plot and a"Huh?--What...
"Best Laid Plans" has invited a lot of comparisons with "The UsualSuspects", but with its caper-plan-gone-awry storyline it reminded me moreof "Palmetto" - except that it's not as good as either of those films. Thewhole set-up is rather laborious, and the payoff, while clever, doesn'treally amount t...
This could have been a good movie, there were strong performances from ReeseWitherspoon and Alessandro Nivola. However, Josh Brolin was a bit weak andunconvincing. In addition, the script was convoluted and improbable, whichsunk the sinking ship for me. Zipp0 rating of 4/10....
What a shame that someone decided to make this movie. Itattempts to be clever, it attempts to be deep, and it attemptsto be dramatic, but fails on all counts. The director attemptsto make a poor mans Usual Suspects, with a suspensful opening,including a extreme close up on a cigerette starting a fir...
Having met his old buddy Bryce for the first time in years for a drink,Nick gets a call from him in the middle of night asking for help. Hegoes to Bryce's place where he gets told that Bryce pulled a girl thatnight, took her home, started messing around and then had sex. Howeverimmediately after sex...
The only reason I watched this is because my girlfriend threatened me to.This is movie is sooo desperate to be a post modern crime thriller that itlooks and feels so relentlessly superficial. Most scenes are decked out in unpleasant pastel colors and interiors arealways lit with warm lights. It's ni...
I failed pretty miserably, though.On a whim, I found this movie, having never heard of it, took it out,and popped it into the DVD player. It started. Intriguing premise; twofriends at a bar, one meets a girl, statutory rape... It's all there.PLOT TWIST => FLASHBACK.Alright... fine. Usually this kind...
I really enjoyed this film noir story about hopeless people taking desperatemeasures to try to wriggle out of the trouble wrought by their bad luck andfoolish acts. Ted Griffin's screenplay is first rate with numerousunexpected plot twists and ironies. I defy anyone to outguess all thecurves he t...
A seemingly simple plan to steal money goes increasingly awry.We get Reese Witherspoon and Josh Brolin (who would later reunite in"Inherent Vice") and some other people. And we get them before they gotreally big. So that is something special, especially because this filmseems to have largely gone un...
Bryce (Josh Brolin) reconnects with old friend Nick (AlessandroNivola). Then he calls on Nick for help. He had drunken black-out sexwith Kathy (Reese Witherspoon) who claims to be underage and threatenedto call the cops. Bryce shows Nick that he had tied her up down in thebasement. Four months earli...
Two elaborate deceptions, a nicely twisted plot and a collection ofcrooked characters are just a few of the fascinating elements of thisintriguing thriller in which rape, blackmail and theft featurestrongly. Flashbacks, double-crosses and the presence of people withunreliable identities soon place t...
This movie begins with a possible occurrence of a rape, and I wonderedwhat on earth was happening. However, in the first 10-15 we find outthat it's all set up, so the rest of the movie is based in explaininghow the three characters have gone into the rape scene. Throughout itsexplanations, spectator...
„The best laid plans" is quite obviously inspired by David Mamet'smovies . It tries to imitate Mamet style , but fails . The direction islack luster . The plot twists are delivered without subtlety and movieis rather boring . Add to that a rather weak acting (even coming fromJosh Brolin and Ter...
I have only seen the version that plays on TV on the channel FX, butthere is a yellow sign that says "play sex games with a child" in blacklettering, and there is also more text below it but I could not readit. Also there are two stick figures, one adult looking down at achild. I swear on my life th...
I had never heard about this film before. I didn't even rented it, it wasmymother who came home with this tape. After a tiring day, I startedwatchingthis, that was a good surprise for me. The plot is very interesting andsomething new happens all the time. The cast is not so famous, but it isenough t...
