Last night we went to see Inherent Vice. It has quite a list of A-list actors. Joaquin Phoenix, Owen Wilson, Reese Witherspoon, Josh Brolin and more. The trailer would lead you to believe it's a hilarious movie.
It isn't. It's boring. Brian fell asleep. That's two and a half hours of my life I'll never get back.
It's drug laden (just pot, but somebody's smoking in almost every scene - it gets old). The storyline is really hard to follow because there are so many side stories, you're wondering where it's all leading. And it lead nowhere. There's gratuitous sex (if it had a purpose to the story, I don't know what it was). This movie wasn't even meh.
I should have known better. I can't say that there are too many movies with Phoenix in them that I like. I didn't like The Village, I didn't like The Master, I didn't like "Her". And I didn't like this one.
Save your money.
