A Chris Rock movie that didn't suck
So.. I'm not much of a Chris Rock fan (pause for the sounds of shock to die down).. In fact, I considered, seriously, skipping tonight's movie night just because it was had Chris Rock in it. Now granted it also had Anthony Hopkins and so I went, betting that no matter how back Chris was, Hopkins would make it at least bearable.

Color me surprised.. When he's not screaming, cursing and trying to act like a hyper jumped-up lunatic every second, Rock actually puts in a credible performance. now granted, Bad Company won't win any Oscars, but for an action flick, it was a nice way to spend an evening.

Let's hope his next flick won't be an absolute stinker since I'm now willing to actually give him another chance :)

Current Mood: impressed impressed
Current Music: Taco - Puttin' On The Ritz

I did decide to skip it because I had other things that needed doing and I didn't feel like seeing what looked from the trailers to be one of those "inept bungler makes good through no fault of his own" type of movies.

Yes, I almost thought that Anthony Hopkins would make it worthwhile, but the dread of the kind of movie it seemed to be kept me away...
