VIDEO: MOVIES: REVIEW: The Giant Mechanical Man (2012)

Clint: 2.8/5 stars, 5.9/10.
Carolyn: 4/5 stars, 7.6/10.
Native ratings: 3.3/5 stars (Netflix), 6.1/10 (IMDB).

It was a chick flick. There wasn’t really any comedy.  A few awkward situations, a few *actors* that are usually funny (Jenna Fischer, Malin Akerman, Bob Odenkirk, Topher Grace, Lucy Punch), but the plot wasn’t funny.

It was mostly depressing, with a love story to defeat the depression of the pointlessness of life.

The “mechanical man” gimmick didn’t really do much for me, pretty much felt like a MacGuffin.

By the end of the movie, I felt very happy for the main characters, but sad that I’d tricked myself into watching something so lacking in laughs.

This is well done. And it’s not bad. It’s just not my cup of tea.

P.S. Lucy Punch PLEASE dye your hair back to red like in Bad Teacher, kthxbye.
