Synopsis

#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – In New York City, Jack Jericho, an elementary school teacher who lives with and takes care of his ailing grandmother Nellie, is a bit of a scammer, most notably demonstrated by he continually rehearsing his corny pick-up line in front of the mirror. Along with his good looking but slightly broken down vintage red Camaro convertible and his surface charm, Jack scours the streets for women he is attracted to to use his well-rehearsed pick-up line, he asking the important questions, such as marital status of his potential conquests, after the fact if he asks at all, the answers to which he doesn’t really care. These pick-ups work a small percentage of the time, which is good enough for him as he collects his conquests’ telephone numbers written down on a well-worn piece of paper he carries around with him at all times. Jack eventually uses his pick-up routine on two women he spies at a nightclub associated with who he will learn is mobster Alonzo Scolara. The first is Lulu, Alonzo’s dumb blonde girlfriend. The second is nineteen-year-old Randy Jensen, a tour guide at the American Museum of Natural History who lives with her alcoholic father Flash on Coney Island. Primarily through extra shifts at the museum and gambling, Randy is trying to pay off Flash’s sizable debt to Alonzo, which is imminently due. Randy is however unwilling to sell her body as Alonzo will forgive part of that debt in return for sleeping with one of his “friends,” drug kingpin Fernando Portacarrero who wants her and no one else. Randy is unlike anyone else he’s ever managed to pick up, as she has his number down, but does hook up with him for what she considers a one-time only thing if only to escape her problems momentarily. In return, without yet knowing Randy’s full story, Jack does whatever he can to help her in his infatuation. What happens between Jack and Randy is affected by Alonzo, who needs to show who’s the boss in changing the rules as it suits his whim.
Plot: A womanizer meets his match when he falls for the daughter of a gambling addict who is in debt to the mob.

Reviews:

A summer movie for people under 20 (max!)
The good things first (sing this): Summer in the city!, and the city, New York, the one star in this movie that looks good ’til the very end, is just beautiful. And because it is summer, and because the city looks as good as the women that populate it, we do not ask that whatever Robert Downey is up to in the beginning is in any way “realistic”, as long as it is carefree, funny, and playfully energetic. But from then on…

I do not ask of a movie that it be literally truthful, however, there should be some inner truth, a veracity in the characters or a thoughtful comment on life or something–and this movie does not have any of it. It seems that most of the characters are caricatures, such as the alcoholic gambling father, the mafia bad guy and his entourage (a whole armada with Italian accents), the corrupt policeman, and the Columbian rich man; nobody is in any way real, not even three-dimensional. (I did like the bad guy’s girlfriend though, probably also a caricature, but at least flirty, lively, and refreshing.) On top of that, our romantic couple has no chemistry (at least not any I can detect), always deadly for a romantic comedy. The philosophic sentences about life and relationships that come out of our protagonists’ mouths are, well let’s say, completely beside the point. They are probably supposed to show that our characters are “serious”, and maybe if I was 16 again, I would find these parts of the movie “deep”, but at my age, I just find them false and somewhat annoying.

So, if you have seen this movie already, I hope you enjoyed the city, the summer, Robert Downey… and maybe some thing or other that I have missed.

Generally dull
Considering all of the on-screen talent, this should have been a good movie. And for the first thirty minutes or so, it still had some potential. Unfortunately, the story that dominates most of this movie is NOT interesting. Plus, I didn’t find any of the characters to be likeable, which made matters much worse. So, despite a competent beginning, the film falls apart, and it was a chore sitting through the final minutes.
