One Hundred Words for The Adjustment Bureau

Another week has shaken our hands and left through the back. Can you believe it's March!? Wow.

I saw The Adjustment Bureau yesterday and wanted to pass on my thoughts in...can you guess...try again....getting warmer...uh huh...100 WORDS!

We follow David, a wannabe Senator. After an embarrassing loss, he meets Elise. They flirt for about three minutes and kiss. It’s instant love (but not convincing). They unexpectedly meet again, and The Adjustment Bureau, case workers (angels) carrying out The Chairman’s (God’s) plan, steps in. The plan doesn’t want David and Elise together. There’s some Matrix-like 'travelling' involved, but nowhere near as awesome.
Matt Damon does a lot of running, Blunt is a breathtaking dancer, and John Slattery’s ‘Son-of-a…’ scene is pretty funny, but the movie didn’t live up to the previews. Not bad, but wait for the DVD.

And that's all, folks! What did you think of this one? I'm not sure what I'm seeing next week. Any recommendations?
Check out the Catch Me If You Can blogfest on Monday, and rip the first chapter of Deadly Dark Dreams (formerly known as Outta the Bag) to shreds! :)

Thanks for the review...I already wasn't really feeling this movie, so I'm glad you said to wait for the DVD. I'll do just that!
