Movie Review: What Just Happened


My Rating: 1Stars

This evening I saw the movie What Just Happened at JP Theater, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong. Not one of the movies from my Must See Movies list.

In a short several weeks I went from a 5 penguins rating movie to one that I am reluctant to give 1 penguin. I really should have known given it is a movie from Magnolia Pictures. I just thought, given it was staring Robert De Niro and with big stars like: Bruce WillisSean Penn and Stanley Tucci it cannot be that bad. Was I wrong!!

What can I say about this movie? It is boring, the plot is simple and does not capture the audience. The acting overall are weak. Bruce Willis plays an overweight, unreasonable, snob of himself. De Niro is an over the hill hollywood producer whose twice divorced that is grabbing onto his career by the thread.

Not only is this the worst movie this year. I can say it is a runner up to the worst movie I’ve ever seen.
