|Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation | Release Date: April 26, 2002||CRITIC SCORE DISTRIBUTION|
The movie creaks and groans, weighed down by clichés.
To top it off, the ending is a clumsy cheat. Of course, I was rooting for the news gal to expire and the film to die a quick death.
Say what you want about Hollywood losing its way in recent years, there's something beautiful about moviemakers who paint themselves into corners this tight.
Every now and then, though, a movie comes up with a scene of surpassing stupidity, and then builds from that defining moment to a climax of perfect ineptitude. Life or Something Like It is such an achievement.
