At The Movies with The Gutter Trash
The Gutter Trash presents yet another instalment in our sporadic series of movie reviews especially designed for the attention span challenged.
In the not too distant future, lonely writer Theodore Twombly (Joaquin Pheonix) falls in love with his voice activated iPhone app (Scarlett Johansson) who sounds like she’s dying from emphysema. They go to the beach together and enjoy fun weekends away in the snow. Then she dumps him. The end.
I thought this was going to be a science fiction movie (which I would’ve enjoyed), but it wasn’t, so I hated it.
At 126 minutes it’s about two hours too long.
One and half stars.
*Spolier alert: This review may reveal key elements of the storyline.
