I am not sure why but I never went to see this movie when it first came out. The other day when I picked the movie up, I was very excited to see it. Overall it is a good movie. I think at times the special effects were pretty lame and could have been way better. Lopez always has a couple of scenes in her movies that you almost laugh because the acting is so bad. The writing for this movie is good and the pace of the movie also is good. Vince Vaughn does and excellent job in a serious roll. Overall this is a good movie but I don't know if I would watch more than once, maybe twice.
This movie kind of fell through the cracks for me and I never saw it until just now. I donít know why I didnít notice it before but Iím glad that I finally had the chance to watch it. I liked the story and I liked the casting for the most part but I particularly enjoyed any scenes with a scantily/erotically clad Jennifer Lopez. I donít care if some people think her ass is too big, I like it. Itís not fat, itís nice and probably pretty yummy, oh but I digress. I really enjoy the idea of virtual reality and this movie makes light of it in a believable sense. I didnít really believe anyoneís acting was sub-par in this feature except for one awkward scene with J-Lo and Vaughn at the very end where they are standing by her car. All in all, there is one thing that this movie has in common with many physiological thrillers and thatís the fact that you may never watch it again although itís definitely worth watching once.
