Like working with a muppet…

So I like Cameron Diaz, I like Muse (which plays over the trailer), and, somehow, they seem to have managed the impossible here – making Tom Cruise seem likable. And appealing!

Also? They make him seem as tall as Cameron Diaz, which I know for a fact is not true. Seriously, they must have either built up a stage for him to walk around on with her or they dug an intricate series of trenches for her to walk in because throughout the whole movie, it looks like he is at least as tall as she is and sometimes slightly taller.

But movie magic aside, it was a pretty fun movie – very caperish with lots of double crosses and uncertainty about who’s the good guy and who’s the bad guy. Probably full of plot holes if you pay too close attention, but isn’t that what you want from a summer action movie? A little action, a little romance, and a plot that doesn’t always make the most sense.

The summer blockbuster tally is really on a roll!

p.s. – Tom Cruise’s character is Knight, but we’re still not entirely sure who Day is because Cameron Diaz’s character’s last name is Havens…

Summer blockbuster tally = 7-0-0 (Frankly, I’m amazed.)
