Joe Carnahan never disappoints, Every frame of Stretch is how you want it to happen. (by hammamasz)
Stretch is a story of unlucky person and unlucky gambler who lives in LA, he wanted to be an actor but instead he's limo driver and fate never been on his side, it always has been until he meets Roger Karos Chris Pine and his life changes in one day.Stretch is so entertaining and every second of it is enjoyable with intense events that will make the viewer happy and satisfied, it's funny, edgy and a wonderful experience, Joe Carnahan knows what he's doing and that's why Stretch is a very great and entertaining movie to watch with great performances from Patrick Wilson, Chris <more>
Pine and Ed Helms with a very nice appearances from Norman Reedus as himself, Ray Liotta and David Hasselhoff.I won't ruin the movie for anyone who didn't watch the movie but my final words are.. watch Stretch, you won't regret it. It's what all movies should be about, Entertaining.
I registered just to review this underrated film. Another reviewer summed this film up so perfectly I have to restate it: the film begins exactly as it should, and continues exactly the way you want it to right to the end. It is the sort of movie that would have been at home in 1985--down on his luck protagonist has an increasingly awful night that turns into a rampage through LA. It is funny without ever being stupid or gross, which probably explains its ranking. In a time when big name stars are putting out such comedic, big screen "gems" as the bizarrely unfunny toilet-humored <more>
"A Million Ways to Die in the West," it is a flashback to films that were funny without being dumb.
Why I love movies. It is a wildfire of enjoyment! (by knoxiii)
Wow! Stretch is a whole theme park of excitement on film. Wilson's acting gets better and better every movie. With the right script he will be winning an Oscar within 3 years or less. The seriousness of his composure in a movie of such hilarity really contributed to the movie's tone & my enjoyment. His acting gave the movie believability which would be impossible on paper. Chris Pine gave a performance that was much, I mean much, like Rob Lowe's character on Californication, except he played 10 times the character for almost the duration of the movie. His ability to keep a <more>
straight face with some lines was truly impressive. The best comparison of watching this movie is placing half of your yearly earnings on a horse to win, plus having great seats to watch, at the Kentucky Derby, the fastest two minutes in sports. Dynamite movie with superb acting with a cast of some of the finest in Hollywood. Norman Reedus was in the movie for about 90 seconds, so it was Patrick Wilson followed by Pine as the focal points of this wildfire.Of course I would love to see more of Jessica Alba & Ms. Decker in any movie, but I understand that this was not a romcom, it was a thrilltacular/comedy. Though embarrassing full disclosure , I thought Pine WAS Rob Lowe until the movie was over & I began to write this review. To be fair, his look & character were almost identical to the character on Californication which to me is a tremendous compliment to both actors . The last three movies I've screened put me to sleep, & this one simply did not offer that option, & gave me back that movie loving feeling. Thank you to everyone involved & there wasn't a dull moment in the movie. It was literally the opposite.
You have got to be joking if you are going to slate this movie, I really, really enjoyed it. I had no idea what this movie was about but with a movie like this that's a good thing as the surprises are a blast. The loser Limo Driver has a bit of all of us in him and don't care how well off you are, you can identify with the crushing blows and cruelty of subsistence living and the obscene opulence of his Passengers - Loved this Film, a pleasant relief after the predictable Hellywood bull I've been watching lately Fury, Dracula Untold and a Myriad of Marvel films . The negatives on <more>
here must be from some sorry, assed, miserable, sack of sh..
Shift Happens. Carnahan has done it again. (by lukejcompton-911-949249)
Wow. Just wow. This movie didn't surprise me with its' quality due to the fact that I am a big Joe Carnahan fan. His work over the years has always impressed me. Even recently I knew he still had it with the amazing TV show The Blacklist. His style of blending humour and drama works really well and it comes into play spectacularly here.The narration of Patrick Wilson's character is both humorous and amazing to listen to. It gives extra layers to this character and makes him all the more enjoyable as the lead. His whacky adventure makes this film whole and truly a fun and <more>
entertaining movie. There are many different movies which have a similar kind of narrative structure to this but very few have Carnahan's skilled execution and delivery. Every moment just hits the right note from start to finish. There are a couple of truly amazing cameos in the film which are both perfect and hilarious.My only nag with the film I guess is that it was somewhat predictable. But, you don't see the film for this really; so it didn't matter a whole lot. It coasted by very well with its' witty script, great soundtrack and stellar acting. Carnahan has served up another home run. A must see for fans of his work. Go in with an open mind if this is your first. Either way, you shall not be disappointed.
A Romantic Comedy With A Shot Of Testosterone (by BrokenDreamer)
While I provide a warning before the main spoiler in this review, in advance I would like to make it clear that the discussion of the film's genre may ruin plot details inadvertently. However, this film has to be experienced to be fully appreciated, so none of these spoilers will interfere with your enjoyment. So going into this, I knew I would be taken on one crazy, demented thrill ride and was anticipating that I would have fun, and laugh, along the way. I wasn't disappointed. In fact, my expectations were surpassed from the opening narration. I knew Joe Carnahan was capable of <more>
inserting plenty of style into his films, but this is Carnahan unleashed. I love how it challenges Stretch's perception of fate and that everything happens for a reason, and the growth of his character was well-developed. I am a fan of redemption stories, and I'm sure I'm not alone in this, which brought a feel-good element to Stretch's development and rediscovery of fate. However, one genre I don't particularly find appealing is the romantic comedy genre, which examines fate in a more cliché manner, following tropes to a capital T. So, consider myself pleasantly surprised when I came to a realization: yes, this is a comedy-action-thriller as described by this IMDb page, but at it's core, it's a simple love story, a romantic comedy.The most twisted, disturbing, over-the-top rom com I've ever seen.So, immediately, I have to give props to Joe Carnahan. He has tried his hand at several different genres and styles, with a variety of success. It's when a director who likely doesn't have a romantic comedy bone in his body takes a stab at a genre that's become cliché that films like this one are born. Look at the film Her. Spike Jonze is not the type of director who would make a romantic comedy see Being John Malkovich and Adaptation, as well as the Jackass franchise he helped develop , so he makes a bizarre movie where a man falls in love with an OS. Carnahan does not make sappy romantic comedies, but with his dark humor, he managed to make a romantic comedy disguised as comedic action thriller. He subverted the genre, which I appreciate. To avoid spoilers, skip past the next paragraph. If you are at all familiar with the romantic comedy genre, you will already anticipate where the love story is heading, but I don't want to be the one to ruin it. Think about it: the film begins with a narration that says this movie is about boy meets girl, the obvious setup for any comedy. The boy thinks he was fated to be with this girl, until the girl abruptly breaks it off. The boy is now hurt, and doubting fate or even love , with one of his only friends a nerdy girl with glasses. He pines for the original girl, before finally getting his revenge, while texting a girl he hopes will be a new relationship. Rediscovering fate, he ends up meeting that girl, who of course surprise, surprise is his friend, without her glasses, revealing this beautiful woman that he was meant to be with, fated to be together. End of spoiler. When described in this manner, it is so clearly a romantic comedy. Just fill in the blanks. Instead of a man, it might be a woman, who was hurt by another man, and through a series of events, discovers that fate would lead her to the right mate who was meant to be all along. The way I see this, this is a man's rom com. Men don't like romantic comedies mostly, though I realize I am perpetuating a stereotype , but this film has those elements from the male perspective, and therefore it must also have gratuitous violence, obscene language, and the girls need to be hotties like Brooklyn Decker after all, men love big boobs and Jessica Alba, two girls many men would love to hook up with. Carnahan took a tired format and injected some testosterone.And, let me reiterate that this is a very good movie. It's well-written, stylistically directed, and features excellent performances all around even Alba, who has developed a reputation as a cringe-worthy actress, is appealing here . Patrick Wilson makes a compelling leading man. He is very likable, making it easy to care about his plight and rejoice with his growth. When a lead connects to the audience, we become engrossed in their adventures, and this film has plenty of places to take us along the way. Chris Pine is hilarious. I couldn't help but think that this performance could be iconic if the film has success, as the role is a memorable one. I could easily see him playing the Joker based on this performance. Ed Helms also gives a maniacally hysterical performance as the ghost of "Karl with a K", who taunts Wilson's Stretch. There are plenty of laughs throughout, and thrills are there to be had, but the rom com genre permeates the main story. So, the next time your significant other tries to force you to watch a rom com, recommend Stretch. This is a movie that has the love story for the girls and the action for the boys. It's the perfect date movie, for anyone who wants some Y chromosomes in their romantic comedy.
I gotta say; I really enjoyed this. (by topsfrombottom)
I just don't get the mediocre ratings I'm seeing for this one. I thought it was a perfect action-comedy - right up there with 'The original Hangover', 'Horrible Bosses' and the like.Here's how it hit me..Story: Tight, to-the-point, succinct and actually, pretty plausible. Pace: Fast from the first few seconds, then damn-near unrelenting. Stunts, Effects, Makeup & Camera-Work: Top-shelf. Characters: Believable and uncomplicated by too much 'back story'. Acting: Each-n-EVERY actor in this film displayed their awesomeness. Predictability: You NEVER knew <more>
what was coming next. LOTS of surprises. Oh - and nice ending, too.Viewer discretion: This is definitely a film for grown-ups. LOTS of drug use and some mild nudity.My head's still spinning down. What a fun flick. Not familiar with much of the director's work, but this was cool.
Hangover Transporter on crack overdose. Stretch delivers more than enough laughs, partially bitter laughs, in expense of himself and everyone in the film. (by quincytheodore)
There are so many freaky stuffs here as though they jammed an entire game of Grand Theft Auto or even a compilation of surveillance cameras from an asylum called Hollywood. It's nothing short of glorious. Stretch is unapologetically full of sharp sarcasm, witty quips and a lot of profanities. Once it gets any momentum, Stretch leaves a trail of involuntary gasp reactions, otherwise known as "WTF" remarks, with its broken down mutilated-by-fate limousine.Story follows the titular Stretch Patrick Wilson , a limo driver with a serious identity crisis and a bit of mental disorder. <more>
He's about to embark on an overnight journey worth of Hangover, Collateral and Transporter combined. It's amazing how the usual haunted man from Insidious and The Conjuring delivers so many chuckles, although he is still technically haunted in here.The cast are nice, each character has very different wacky personality, borderline over-the-top. Still, these characters that seem like they escape video game realm are ridiculously fascinating. Some of them don drug dealer or angry cop personas, while others portray themselves as the elites of Hollywood. Most importantly, they appear to be enjoying themselves in this strange escapade.Script is thoroughly and amazingly witty. They exchange banter with insult jab and hefty amount of laughable internal as well as external screams. It's the stuffs you hear behind the closed door of therapy session or rich men orgy. Wilson delivers his inner thought monologues with the despair of broken man and he is sullenly convincing.The pace is fast, but it does need some time to rev the engine. Its crude nature might not be for everyone either, it has little to none restraint, so as they say, viewer discretion is advised. However, these are minor issues and can easily be overlooked since the film is just incredibly fun. Stretch delivers more than enough laughs, partially bitter laughs, in expense of himself and everyone in the film.
This is definitely very much in line with the 21 Jump Street films, if only because they're the last two real comedies I've seen from this year. This one's definitely crazier, reminding me a bit of Filth. Patrick Wilson is having a blast here, allowing to be all kinds of fun and energetic in a way he never really is. Chris Pine is the best in show though, really playing with his character in such tremendously amusing ways. I always loved him in the Star Trek films and he's one to watch out for. Overall, this isn't wildly original but it plays on a scene-to-scene basis and <more>
in that respect it works tremendously, even if slight. Definitely fun.
