[6.50/10] The Words (2012)

The Words (2012)

QuickRating: Although completely miscast, Bradley Cooper still does his best and gives one of the better performances of his career, Zoe Saldana is way underused, but Jeremy Irons is spot-on as usual. The melancholic mood of the film suits the peculiar nature of the story, and while hardly plausible, the plot is very engaging, dramatically intense, and definitely not cliched. "The  Words" also teaches an important lesson about dignity, and that makes it worth-watching.

This movie grated on my last nerve. And I find it hard to believe that Saladana and Cooper are a real life couple, they had zero chemistry on screen. And yes, I am a Cooper hater. I honestly do not know how this man continues to get work. He is a one-dimensional, smarmy used car salesman. He's played his Hangover character in everything.

Mel, and I was entertained. Well, not in the joyous kind of way, but still entertained. I'm not a big fan of Cooper, either, but the thing I liked about him is that he's not an in-your-face actor with cocky attitude. But, yes, he's a one trick pony for sure.

I just love movies said...
