A parent-friendly thriller that allows a young audience to think about complex ideas and core human values for the first time.
On the rom-com scale, scores fair on chemistry between leads, poor on script. Too bad in a sex-free film where marriage is a noble goal.
With fun nods to pop culture and sci-fi classics, it’s a fast-paced, high-action story that takes no prisoners.
Not as memorable as fellow 2014 foodie film Chef, but it’s hard to find any major flaws in it. Predictable, but well-played.
Let’s get the inevitable comparison out of the way: Twister, this ain't.
