Ok, so I saw this movie a few nights ago (not by choice, the friends that I happened to be with at the time wanted to see it, and I'm not the biggest Sandra Bullock fan in the world).

For those of you that have seen the trailer know that it's about two kids that commit a murder in hopes that they can commit the ultimate crime and avoid punishment. Sandra Bullock plays the tough cop, and Ben Chaplin plays the unassuming partner (he pulls off the ridiculous American accent quite well) and the two must spend the entire movie trying to catch these kids.

I'm not going to review this movie, but for anyone that saw it, did anyone notice the homo-erotic overtones in this movie?
I'm very much referring to the two boys (whose names I can't remember). There seemed to be an excess of touching between the two characters...
The more I think about it, the more it makes sense, because one kid was the popular kid in high school, who had both looks and money and the other kid was the intelligent highschool outcast (similar to a goth-kid without the make-up). In another world, there should be no reason that these two kids should be friends. It's part of the unwritten rules of highschool: cool kids and losers don't mix. So my conclusion is that these two kids were f*cking.

Now having said that, the movie would have been much more interesting if it switched focus from Sandra Bullock and concentrated on the relationship between these two kids and showed how they became friends and how they came to the decision to commit the murder of an innocent.

That's just my two-bits.
Thoughts?

Murder by Boredom!!!

Keith & I went to the premier & re-named it the above! It was one of the crappest films i've EVER seen!

Talk about giving away the plot in the 1st 10 minutes & having Sandra run around the two idiot actors in circles for 1 1/2 hours to figure it out!

DON'T GO SEE IT >>>> ITS CRAP!!! And if you already have .. i'm truely sorry!

That's what I was thinking as well when I wasted nearly two hours of my life watching this movie. At first I thought the two guys were homosexual and were lovers because of the way they looked at each other and the constant touching they were doing.

With that aside, as usual, this movie had some potential but as always, Hollywood messed it up and made it what it was. The idea was kinda cool but I thought they would have murdered more people and made it more psychological than it was.

Either way, I'll never get that time back but hey, at least I got to enjoy a bag of my revered Jolly Rancher Gummies!
