The Way Way Back Movie Review

Steve Carell is hands down one of the nicest people in show business.  That’s why it’s such a shocker seeing him play Trent in ‘The Way Way Back.’ Audiences will gasp at his sheer & utter douchey-ness.  It’s perfect.  He’s a bully & his target is Duncan (Liam James.) He’s just a kid who happens to be the son of Pam (Toni Collette), Trent’s girlfriend for the summer.  It’s no secret, kid’s have been taking crap from adults since the beginning of time. What makes this movie so memorable is you feel like you’re the one getting dumped on, hard.  It’s an amazing feeling when you start to flinging it back into adult’s faces.

Duncan escapes daily verbal beat downs from Trent by taking a part-time job at Water Wizz.  It’s there where he meets the water park’s fast-talking, fratboy owner, Owen (Sam Rockwell.) These two just hit it off & from there on out, Rockwell steals the movie.  Trent’s mission: To make Duncan’s summer vacation miserable. Owen’s Mission: Be the best Wing-Man, have a blast & make Duncan a man.  Along the way, we see first crushes, parents who can’t handle their liquor, obnoxious neighbors who live to gossip & a lazy-eyed kid who lights up the screen!  Written & Directed by Nat Faxon & Jim Rash, throw on a swimsuit & don’t miss ‘The Way Way Back.’ Rated PG-13.  You can Follow me on Twitter @leoquinones.

Crazy Stupid Love Movie Review

Crazy, Stupid, Love. had a nice movie trailer.  It showed a story of Steve Carell’s character going through tough times with Julianne Moore’s character.  There was another layer in the trailer with Emma Stone’s character getting together with Ryan Gosling’s character.  After seeing this ‘nice’ trailer, I swore to myself, I know this movie. I’ve already seen this movie.

The reality is:  This nice trailer did not do the movie justice at all.  I’m watching the movie thinking to myself, this has twists & unpredictability. After almost three decades of marriage, Cal (Steve Carell) and Emily (Julianne Moore) are just about done as a couple.  While trying to numb himself with booze, Cal meets & befriends Jakob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) a slick swordsmen who snares a smokin’ hot chick every night.

Cal undergoes a Manly Man Makeover & his confidence is boosted.  Across town, Hannah (Emma Stone) is having her own love troubles with her boyfriend Richard (Josh Groban).

There were standout performances from Jonah Bobo as their love-struck 14-year old son. Also, a convincing performance by Analeigh Tipton as the babysitter.  Kevin Bacon & Marisa Tomei are always good in supporting roles.

I’m going to predict: Crazy, Stupid, Love. will garner a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Comedy or Musical category.
