As usual Tom relies on camera tricks to prove his superiority but a good movie for that night when you need to feel something other than boredom.
Not great.... I got myself through the movie by imagining that Tom Cruise's character Roy being played by different actors. Comedic actors. Now don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of Tom Cruise in other movies - where the comedy comes from the situations, or other actors, and where he plays more of a straight man (MI series). But watching Cruise try to deliver comedic lines is painful and honestly, creepy. Just pretend he's Seth Rogen, Will Smith or Simon Pegg and you'll feel a lot better.
James Bond type movie as far as doing impossible things goes. But with some really funny bits. A good, entertaining movie.
This movie had all the elements for something good, even for the suspend-all-belief-for-the-fun-of-it comedy spy genre, but misses the mark. The only thing to redeem it is the casting of Cruise - sunlight glinting off very white teeth as usual - and Diaz who does the best she can with the kooky plot and script - "stay with me...stay with me...." Is that the best line they can come up with? I think they could have enhanced certain aspects of the film, like the part with old folks, the character Simon Feck, and a bit more 'island time' enhanced. But the action scenes took over a bit and all that gratuitous killing...! Overall, disappointing because it could have been something good with plot adjustments and editing.
Pretty good even with Tom Cruise's funny running
The stupidest, least funny movie I've seen in a long time. The description made it sound entertaining and amusing. It missed on every count. The action sequences were ridiculous. What should have been clever twists just made the plot disjointed. Even putting your brain in neutral can't make this worth sitting through. A waste of time with a lot of unfulfilled potential.
Suprisingly funning and enjoyable considering I'm not a Tom Cruise fan!
Disappointing with such excellent actors
Dreadful, would rather spend my time cutting my toe nails.
very entertaining and humorous plus action mixed with top acting
I didn't really know what to expect with this one, a bit silly but I found it funny and lighthearted, nice to see Cruise do some comedy!
This was just a vanity piece for the two stars. Total rubbish. Tom Cruise - show the smile, check, show off the body, check, show he can do all his own stunts (yeah, right!) check. Cameron Diaz - beautiful and totally stupid; but hey, as long as you're beautiful that's all that matters. How bad was it? I spent most of the movie wondering how someone as rich as Tom Cruise can't afford to do something about his eyebrows.
Crap-ish. Boring and weird. you have to wait till the end to watch anything that you hadnt seen before or before it starts to engage you with any type of cleverness..... if you can call it that. Just another movie for Tom Cruise to beat his chest in. And it goes for ever!!!!!
Its kinda pedestrian. A bit boring. Action-movie-paint-by-numbers and a few cut and pastes from other sub-genres. But I can think of a lot worse. I spent a lot of my time during the film wondering how Tom became so crazy.
Not a bad movie,I like Cameron Diaz
Wouldnt ever recommend this film, I walked off half way through, what a load of rubbish!!
Watchable movie with some good stunts and plenty of action.
Freezed a few times towards the end which was a pain in the ass and missed what was happening for a few minutes.
Not a Tom Cruise fan at all, tend to avoid his movies, however this was not a bad flick at all. Some good action scenes.
Light entertainment with acclaimed actors, if you like a bit of action with some humourous scenarios then this movie is for you!!
Pretty average movie.. I wouldnt recomend this to anyone I know.
An insult to the intelligence Absolute garbage
I couldn't watch this film as the disc started jumping from about a 3rd of the way through.
Very funny, but got a bit corney towards the end of the movie. Would watch again.
Fantastic. Loved the Cruise-y character tom played. Really excellent fun movie. This is action comedy escapism at its best
Some mindless fun. Lots of action, although it can get a bit repetitive. Its a movie that you can just switch your brain off to for light entertainment. The movie itself is in a similar vain to 'True lies' where it doesn't take itself too seriously and has a few comedic moments as well.
I thought Tom Cruise knew how to define a character - guess I was wrong. Cameron Diaz's make up was dreadful
not the best movie i have seen.
This movie kept freezing so really wasn't happy. Had to end watching it on computer.nmnmThis has happened to frequently of late. Patricia Stevens
good fun , leading lady awsome
I enjoyed this movie. Tom Cruise is fantastic. Great action, love the comedy and a good ending. Really enjoyable.
Tom Cruise tried a bit of comedic acting in this one. Cameron Diaz was okay, but the story was a letdown and you never get to learn about the title - well not really.
Enjoyed watching this movie - good combination of action and comedy.
It wasn't quite what we were expecting, it was FULL of action!!! Enjoyed it.
Light comedy. Not up to usual standards for either actor.
Absolutely boring what was Cameron thinking of, obviously needed the money.
I thought this a totally boring movie and did not watch it to end.
This was a funny, action packed spy movie with Cameron Diaz the star as usual. Even Tom Cruise was reasonabley beilievable for a CHANGE! I enjoyed this as a light hearted comedy with a bit of a twist.
Good friday night escapism - very suprised! Funny, clever action, Cameron Diaz makes Tommy look good.
Tom Cruise's character evades more bullets than the proverbial barn door and Cameron Diaz makes dipsy an optional gender description but it doesn't matter; there's enough action and humour to make this movie amusing and enjoyable.
This movie was over the top, not the best action movie and very predictable... It was set like a James Bond hero movie but not as good.
Wasnt as funny as the clips. Bit disappointing in its predictability.
Really enjoyed it. Rent it.
My sister and I loved watching this movie. Entertaining, fast, fun! Would recommend to my friends.
Entertaining, lots of action, witty.
I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Pure entertainment. A fun movie filled with action, comedy and farfetchedness!
Yeah, quite good.
But it's Tom Cruise......hard to watch him act and not just see the inner wierdo.
It was like watching two movies, Cruise thought he was a movie all on his own
which is to be expected and Diaz's charm was a bit lost in it. A bit boring despite the action effects.
Refreshingly different, thoroughly enjoyable
I can't believe I actually loved this movie, was a great light harted romantic comedy with a bit of action. Left me feeling all warm and fuzzy.
What a brilliant movie, we both thoroughly enjoyed it. Didn't know that this was a true story. Done it again Aussies. Fantastic
Heaps of fun and pure entertainment, just don't make the mistake of thinking it's a serious film. Definitely worth watching.
Brilliant interaction between Cruise and Diaz. Good Sunday afternoon action film without the swearing.
I hadnt expected too much but found this to be a fun movie in the Mission Impossible style but with Cameron Diaz as comic relief / love interest.
Worth a look and potentially a sequel.
A light hearted version of the Bourne movies.
DVD stuck twice so missed some of the plot line. I've seen it!
Awsome movie would highly recommend anyone to see it. It is a great role for cameron and tom and the movie jsut wouldnt be the same without them. Well done guys!!!
no pint watchingeven with good actors
waste of time
3 people watched with me..
we watched it because we had nothing better to do..otherwise would have turnit off in middle
Absolutely hilarious from start to finish. I would watch it again.
A very predictable movie but good action scenes helped to pick up this movie where it fell short in the story line.
Very entertaining and action packed. Fun to whatch
I'd like to say 'don't bother' - boring, too much shooting, got sick of people being drugged or knocked out and then jumping forward several days to a different place... but Cameron isn't too bad in this. No idea why Tom Cruise is there - Matt Damon would have done an excellent job and maybe the movie would have been more fun.
One of the best I've seen in a long time
Without Cam Diaz providing the humour this movie would be rubbish
action with comedy.Over the top stunts
i found this movie too be very boaring it just wasnt what i expected that these too great actors could do i just found it boaring
A solid three stars for this one as both Cruise and Diaz provide good perfomances in a fast paced and fun (if over the top) movie. You can't help feeling that Tom Cruise is a bit nuts though..
Good. The family enjoyed it. Fun movie with a good story.
Not what I expected from the TV ads but it was funny and quite entertaining. The ending was a bit over-the-top but otherwise a great surprise - I thought I would fall asleep. Tom looked good!
This is the same DVD with the same fault that I have just returned. We will give you one more opportunity then we will cancel our membership. Keeps freezing between 22 -28 minutes. not worth persisting.
Love action packed movies like this one. Although would have loved to have seen how Tom got himself out of the situations instead of Cameron being drugged all the time, But great action movie
fluffy but fun family movie
Not been a big Tom Cruise fan of late, but clips looked funny so gave it a go and fell into the oldest trap in the movie business, show all your best bits in the preview. It didn't start too badly, actually quite funny but slid very quickly down hill and it was a very long hill. Best part for me was Marc Blucas's (of Buffy fame) 70's porn mustache.
Pretty funny, but not as funny as I would have liked it. Some good action scenes.
Better than expected for a Tom C movie.
Never have I viewed such a bad movie...bad! bad! bad!.
Was this an ego trip for Tom Cruiz? and what was Cameron Diaz thinking in agreeing to act along side him!
Do not waste your time in viewing this movie, relegate it to the scrap heap!
I am amazed that Tom and Cameron allowed themselves to be involved with this load of rubbish.
A good popcorn action flick that requires little brain power to watch. Moderately funny in places and well choreographed fight scenes. Nice to see Tom Cruise having a go at comedy.
usual active stuff with tom cruise co stars good as well
Weak acting and story line.
Absolutely inane. Watched first 20 minutes and hoped in vain that it would improve.
enjoyed this movie funny but also enteraining would recommend
Good movie, worth watching, lots of action 7/10
I Liked it so much I might buy it. Who never Tom Cruise could be funny!!!
Good and funny action flick. I like Tom's new style. It is a light hearted pic.
The first half hour is totally stupid. Then - improbably - this crazy couple seem to become more likeable. Nevertheless their situations and actions are over-the-top and ridiculous, but at least there's a touch of humour in it.
Easy to watch, pretty standard predictable stuff
Tom Cruise is back and is as good as ever in this film, great all rounder, in all the action there is some romance, great action scenes
Totally out of the box for Tom, he does comedy exceptionally well
The money must have been good for them to do this rubbish
Starts off with some real promise, but it quickly becomes standard fare. Couldn't work out how Cameron Diaz went from a screaming wreck to a gun-toting secret agent. Peter Sarsgaard under-utilised. Some reasonable moments, and we found it enjoyable enough to watch, but only just.
Some hilarious scenes, though Tom cruise has lost it, I'd have given it a miss if I thought it was going to be so weak!
I am sorry, not worth the effort. Action sequences were too fake, it became a Tom Cruise film. Unrealistic motorbike scenes, unreal car chase. Aircraft that mysteriously didn't explode until a long time after exiting. What crap. 109mins of my life I wont get back. Disappointing.
Really enjoyed it. Even my friends who dont like Tom Cruise enjoyed it, though they probably wouldnt admit it :)
Ho Hum, it's Tom again. I'm starting to think it's not worth watching anymore Tom Cruise movies but this one had Cameron Diaz in it so I gave it a go. She was too good for this movie.
Not a big Tom fan, but I think this was an entertaining movie. Certainly it isn't big on plot but just a good "tune out from the world and be entertained" movie.
Yet another Tom Cruise disappointment. Formulaic, predictable story, Dull to look at, only saving grace is the always good looking Cam.
The movie was not what I had expected from Tom Cruise! I would say second rate and the action sequences were somewhat over the top! I certainly was very disappointed.
Action sequences were a little bit cartoon-esque!
Too much happening, too quickly to figure out what the heck was the supposed plot line!
No chemistry between the lead actors...I didn't believe the supposed connection between these 2...
The ending was a total farce!
Like Charlie's Angels meets Mission Impossible! Not good....at all!
Not the biggest Cruise fan but I must admit that I really enjoyed this movie. Great action scenes (loved the motorbike!), plenty of laughs, and although there wasn't major chemistry between the two main characters, they still looked good together. Worth a watch.
I liked the movie but most of the action was shown on the commercals. So we pretty much saw it all. The chemistry between the two leads wasnt very good but overall an enjoyable movie.
I gave it 3 stars because it was missing a critical element... chemistry between the main actors. It just didn't have that wow factor.
I actually don't mide Tom Cruise in this film. Good combination of action
I was really surprised how much I enjoyed this. I thought it might be a little overacted and corny but I was laughing all the way through and overall thought it was a great movie!
Thoroughly enjoyed this. Funny, action. Well put together.
Very good movie,a few comedic scenes,plenty of action,worth watching
