I just posted my review of ‘The Green Hornet’ (check it out here), and after letting things ruminate for a couple days, I’ve decided that maybe Seth Rogen should go back to doing what he does best. Being a slacker.

Oh sure, he’s a slacker in ‘The Green Hornet,’ but he attempts to become a non-slacker by fighting bad guys, and it all goes wrong. Oh so wrong.

I gave the movie 2.5 out of 5 Reels, and that’s being generous. There was no chemistry among any of the characters — well, except for maybe Kato and Black Beauty (that’s the car) – and the dialogue seemed like it was written on a late-night bender. Also, I’m pretty sure I saw the shadow of a cue card in a few scenes.

On the other hand, my 16-year-old son and his buddy absolutely loved ‘The Green Hornet,’ so maybe you have to be a teenage boy to get it. I promised them that I’d say something nice about the movie, so here it is: the car is awesome.



  1. So you’re accusing comic book characters of being made of cardboard? Ahh, yes…only it’s pulp paper. Shallow? Ahh, yes…2 dimensions are their metier.
    Personally, I liked Warren Beatty’s sleek version of Dick Tracey–but that was not a comic book it was an artsy movie. So let the low-brows have their thing, Jane.

  2. I’ve wondered whether this movie is good or not. I’ll cross it off my list. We finally saw A-Team last night. I had low expectations and I was a big A-Team fan years ago. I loved the movie. Stupid, full of plot holes, plenty of banter, very A-Team.

  3. […] ‘The Green Lantern‘ Release Date: Jun. 17 Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Blake Lively, Peter Sarsgaard, Tim Robbins, Angela Bassett What It’s About: A lowly test pilot gets his hands on a magical green ring that gives him awesome powers and membership into a group of elite, intergalactic superheroes. Reel Buzz: Well, Ryan Reynolds IS the ‘Sexiest Man Alive’ (right?), so I’m sure his six-packed abs will get plenty of screen time. I just hope this movie is better than Seth Rogen’s ‘The Green Hornet.’  […]
