The two Pauls
Paul Giamatti and Paul Rudd (the two Pauls) in the role of two rather inept Canadian Christmas tree salesmen and the quirky characters they encounter while in New York City cannot save this flick from the big yawn category.
Why this story doesn’t work I do not know. All the right ingredients are there for a light hearted funny story but it just can’t bring it together. Sort of like the two Pauls trying to sell their trees when they set up in NYC. No one really notices them except for a few and their sales are almost nil. That’s this movie.
Then the one on parole turns to his criminal mind to bring in the buyers. This action should have had some humor to it but his actions comes across as desperate and sad. And the piano heist at the closing of the story just comes across as unbelievable instead of being wickedly sneaky and crafty.
The two Pauls should have been able to create more lighthearted and endearing characters. But sorrowfully for me that just doesn’t happen.
All is Stupid and Absurd
I normally love the two male leads…but this film seemed a labor of pain and suspending disbelief.
Here we have two former partners in crime, one who steals the other’s wife while he’s in prison, yet they’re still pals and team up for a truck trip from Canada to sell Christmas trees in New York. Paul Giamatti is the cuckolded pal who never lets Paul Rudd forget what he did during fits of overacting.
On top of this, these two petty criminals haven’t the sense to bank their sales each day until the obvious happens and to get something to show for their work they wind up pulling a Laurel and Hardy style burglary in New York without getting caught. And they do this with the assistance of a wealthy and cultured Russian woman who takes a liking to the crude and filthy Giamatti character.
In the end, Rudd ends up with Giamattis wife and child, while Giamatti gets nothing…and that’s the way you feel at the end of All is Bright. Have a nice day, hopefully brighter and more intelligent than this film.
