Chit~Chat: I really liked the idea, but the realization could have been better. I don’t know, maybe it was a good thing that I had expectations, but there could be so much more… The story line was a little skinny… Beside the main story line everything was just put there to make it more colorful, but I don’t think it worked. The ex wife, the treachery of the night guards, the new girlfriend, and the almost lost son were all just a little crappy. I specially disliked the little boy… he was always smiling, though he should have been sad or confused or something like this.
What I really liked were the little characters played by great actors. Here I’m thinking about Teddy (played by Robbie Williams), Octavius (played by Steve Coogan), Ahkmenrah (played by Rami Malek) and Jedediah (played by Owen Wilson). These little characters were exciting and well built. I think this part of the plot should have been more interesting to expand, not the life of Larry…
