I'll probably check it out on cable but between the reviews & the various holiday things going on for the next week or week and a half, I doubt I'll see it in the theater.This is the kind of movie that no matter how bad the reviews are, it is not going to stop me to watch it at least once.
Second worst movie I have ever seen.
You obviously haven't seen THE LITTLE HOURS . I watched it last night and it was truly one of the worst films that I have ever seen.. Catholic Nuns were all wearing too much make-up.That wouldn't have been allowed hundreds of years ago..Surely the make-up artist would have known this. James Franco also had excessive make up on. Peasants, especially men, would not have worn any. The film was said to have been based on THE DECAMERON but it wasn't. Pasolini made a classic film of the famous book. This film is a DUD from beginning to end. Truly garbage.Set in Italy but the American accents were so obvious. The film was written and directed by Jeff Baena- a name to avoid in the future.
gets a boost when an unlikely character shows up, and wrestles away the film from Matt Damon's character.
I wouldn't say the reviews have been horrible.
There's no denying that the box office has been awful. It has a 63% on Metacritic which is higher than movies like Jumanji or Murder On The Orient Express,Horrible? No. But most of them have been, at best, lukewarm, and that is clearly affecting the box office.
I think the movie had some really interesting ideas in it, but they didn't coalesce into something that works.
