Funny thing happened when I got around to watching 43 movies in 43 days… I found myself not wanting to watch a movie of any kind for an undetermined amount of time.
I caught little bits and pieces of movies in the past couple of days… but I didn’t really sit from beginning to end for a while until last night.
Got around to watching the Tower Heist, because of the following reasons :
1.) It has Eddie Murphy
2.) It’s a heist movie
3.) It was panned by everyone I know and nothing delights me more than seeing movies that are regarded as ”bad”.
After watching it… I can pretty much confirm that its pretty bad. Terrible actually. The film is about a Bernie Madoff (sp?) kinda guy that loses everyone’s money and he’s about to walk on his charges because he knows a bunch of Judges. This however placates the life savings of everyone he managed in the building he lives in - so the characters in the movie decide to break into his apartment to find a hidden safe.
The film takes a little turn in the middle of the movie… and it sorta comes off as a very simple Oceans Eleven. Except terrible…
