Just watched this, thought it was great fun.
This man is a comedy genius!
What did you like about it spags?
I hear Zooey Deschanel (sp?) is in it which should give it an extra half a star.
Can anyone spoil it for me so i don't have to go see it, I can't stand M Knight meshallyman.

I really like his first four films, but haven't seen the last one after it got ragged in reviews, and looking at the 20% RT rating for this, don't think I'll bother here either.
LOST the PLOT.

These are proper laugh out loud momments!! Also the acting is shite, but it fits the tone perfectly - how else is the female lead able to deliver lines such as "So it could be terrorists or some kind of gas or plants" and then have the male lead try to calm down an angry house plant - which is one of the best things I've seen at the movies for a while. Its hammy like the acting in the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers (which gets referenced in a couple of scenes). I liked the suspense too, it had a playful Hitchcockian vibe to it - the bit where they come across a boarded up house and you can hear a rope creaking, expecting to see another suicide instead a girl is being pushed on a swing. Mostly its just good dumb fun and once you get where its coming from its pretty enjoyable imo. §
I expect everybody will get all serious on it (as most of the reviews I've seen seem to have done) which is a shame as that kind of misses the point.

About sums it up.
Yeah, he was quality Loved it when he was trying to tell the kids not to kick the door in. Perfect casting >_<
I had that same expression after beating mgs2
Saw this tonight too. Spags has pretty much covered it in his spoiler - not bad, but I do think it was MEANT to be serious. My mate reckoned it could happen too, LOLS
EDIT: Oh, and DANTE <---- was in it too (didnt have any lines though and we only saw his reflection but F*** YEAH!)
