Irresistible – Dramedy
Category – Movie
Content – This movie is supposed to be a satirical political comedy that pushes Democrat Gary against Republican Faith. Both are political consultants and have history going against each other in political campaigns. Based in Deerlaken, Wisconsin, both consultants seem to be out of their league in this small mid-western town. I found certain scenes to actually be odd in nature, with nothing to do with the plot. And “DC” Gary’s character was seriously annoying, We needed more Faith! While the movie is supposed to be comedic, I couldn’t even muster a smile. I could see what was “supposed” to be funny; however, it just wasn’t. I actually found myself to be extremely bored about half way through. This scores a 3 out of 10.
Acting – Steve Carell and Rose Byrne have some slightly comedic banter, but in the end I found it to be just stupid. The only good thing about this movie was the innocent Chris Cooper, who played Colonel Jack Hastings, running for the town mayor. He is an exceptional actor and never lacks in his acting abilities. It was cool to see Mackenzie Davis too. Score is 5 out of 10.
Duration – 1 hr 42 min. Well, since I got bored half way through, this one was way too long for me. I just didn’t find any comedic appeal, so I really didn’t want to keep watching. This gets a 5 out of 10.
TOTAL INDEX for Irresistible – 13 out of 30
Recommended Watch – I wouldn’t waste this almost two hours of your life. Watch one of those 80’s comedies to get real humor, these “comedies” these days are really lacking!
