My wife and I saw Deception over the weekend. The movie itself was entertaining, though somewhat predictable.
The worst part of the whole thing was the two women sitting behind us who would not stop talking during the entire movie. At one point, one of them even answered her phone just to say, “Hey I’m watching this stupid movie right now. Can I call you back?” Jeez! If all you are going to do is talk and bad-mouth the movie, leave the theater. I turned around at one point, and asked them to shut up, but they were totally devoid of any class, or manners.
So, back to the movie. I really enjoyed Hugh Jackman’s character, a smooth-talking bad guy. I wasn’t overly impressed with Ewan McGregor, but maybe it was just the character he was playing wasn’t very interesting. Michelle Williams also did a fine job, but in the end the movie was forgettable. The ending felt so familiar, yet I can’t recall what other movie had the same “co-signer twist”.
