Simply one of the worst movies of all time

Jun 19, 2019

This is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. It is a waste of two hours although I did enjoy the fishing stuff. The story sounds pretty good BUT it is all computer generated in an alternate reality devised by the son. It is really just a fantasy. There - that is the spoiler. Don't believe me, check the ratings for this movie on IMDB. There are currently 198 people waiting for this movie. Cancel your request and you would thank me.

Matthew McConaughey lives on a secluded island, until a woman from his past (Anne Hathaway) mysteriously shows up offering him money to kill her husband. I was really excited about this one because I like Steven Knight and Anne Hathaway, but it's not what I was expecting. There's depth to the story, but you won't see it till you reach the end. I liked that it took a different approach to telling a story with roots in broader societal issues like physical violence, abuse, mental health, among other things, but honestly they don't shine through until the very end of the movie.

My advice is... save your time and give it a big pass. I think too many naïve folks got conned because of Matthew Mcconnaughey and Ann Hathaway. Absolutely dumb ending will leave you tearing at your hair.

Who writes this stuff? All the Dill character needs to do is say, "You want me to take care of the kid, fine, give me custody. You got a problem with your husband, get a restraining order. You want him dead, get a gun and leave me out of it." But then there wouldn't be any movie.

This film is incredibly stupid. MM mumbles his way through the film which was almost unbearable to get through. This is precisely why I only use free streaming services through a Roku and watch other films at no cost through DVD's from the library.

I actually paid my hard earned cash to see this at the theater, the trailer looked very interesting. If I ever run into McConaughey, I'm asking him for $40-- $20+ for the tickets and $20 for 2 hours of my time (which is generous of me, my time's worth more!). A phenomenally weird, dud of a movie. Actually, please see it so you know that I am not exaggerating!

This is one of the most ridiculous movies I've EVER seen. Was decent until the plot twist, my goodness. If you like Interstellar & the weird Lincoln commercials, then this movie is for you!

Generally, a pretty good movie with great actors!

N.B.: Some expletives and sexual scenes throughout the movie...
