See what I did there? With the title? I was not really looking forward to this because the other three seem pretty recent. But it might be like that kind of thing where you feel like it was pretty recently that you were at Red Lobster and then you start thinking about it and it was actually four years. Let me check… yeah, 3 was in 2007, so, longer ago than it feels. Just like Red Lobster.
Anyways, not looking forward to it that much, but now I gotta say I liked Andrew and Emma more than Tobey and Kirsten. They were great together, and the villain, Rhys Ifans, was pretty scary and layered even though his name is made up of sounds and not actual names. Also, one of the best Stan Lee cameos of all time.
It was a million outside, so that’s a strong hint, but this movie really made it feel like summer. It had lab coats and guys climbing up buildings and Sally Field putting her hand up to her mouth in a dramatic way. You know, summer stuff. And toward the end there’s a New Yawkah bit where it turns out they’re mostly gruff and lovable and kind of heroic and not just rude and over caffeinated. If that doesn’t spell “summer is here” then I don’t know what does. Except maybe a trip to Red Lobster.
