I watched part of a movie this weekend. I don’t normally write about the parts of movies I see. Why should I note that I watched a little bit of Ocean’s Eleven for the twentieth time? I don’t think anyone will find that particularly edifying or interesting.
But I think that rule should only apply to movies I haven’t seen before. So I’ll note that I watched part of Meet the Parents last night. It started out fairly well, but it lost its funniness fairly quickly. It just built up to be too much after a while, and the movie couldn’t seem to choose between outright farce and realism with a comedic touch. It ended up in that muddled middle ground and I couldn’t finish it.
