2:59 Tina actual Turner though.
7:37 How does the film lose focus?
10:33 I would 1000% watch Arnie doing Shakespeare.
15:09 Being robbed and going to the police took less than half an hour?
18:43 That’s some precious old Tibetan ticket and he just ripped it in half?
25:20 Cops should never make plans to retire, it always seems to go wrong. Impulse retirement is what’s needed.
29:04 Yay, car chase in the Grease river.


The trailer for this didn’t look great, but I was interested in the huge number of people making cameos, so figured it was worth a go. It was oddly compelling, but if I’m honest, I couldn’t shake the feeling that there were better things to be watching, and that it wasn’t going to be an overall good film. So although we got past the twenty minute rule, when a technical glitch forced a restart after half an hour, we restarted another film instead.
