My usual Sunday is laundry day. Though I intended to spend my afternoon at home to take a nap, I felt crazy about this movie the first time I saw the trailer. It was another Hangover-ly type of movie worthy to watch for a weekend laugh.
Getting to the moviehouse was a struggle. There was the rain and my three-year old niece was very assertive to come with me. I spent almost an hour trying to escape from him. Fortunately, I managed to proceed as I handed him over to my cousin.
I was in the 5:00 PM movie schedule. Although there were few moviegoers, It was a guaranteed seating policy, so it meant that there was no chance to watch it again which of course my preference.

From start to finish, it was a bomb of laughter. The whole package of Ethan Tremblay was hilarious. His gestures, his crazy but trendy outfit, his masturbating dog – Sonny, and to top it all was his acting prowess. The “Godfather lines” really gave me that jolt of exhilaration. As for Peter, I just loved that Robert Downey Jr played it. Robert’s charisma added spice to the film - his sarcastic lines, his Ironman physique and Sherlock Holmes’ humor. A perfect blend of characters to match Ethan.
There were some heart-touching moments but never dull moments. The scene with Jamie Foxx having a coffee (not knowing that it was the ashes of Ethan’s father) really put me in a laugh mess. The ever commando rescue style in the US-Mexico border was another good shot.
Overall, the film was a good icebreaker for my weekend boredom.
