Is it just me or does the Cowboy Shtick get old in 2 seconds?
I guess, if you don't like cowboys.

Looks interesting to me. I don't get audio at work, but without any of the dialogue it looks pretty good. Maybe movies would be better this way?



The big guy looked like Jeckyl and Hyde from Van Helsing and the gal reminded me of Flo from the insurance commercials - it does look fun.

Basically the dialogue was Jeff making snarky comments to the rookie, Ryan. Much like K and J in MIB. Oh and the hot blonde and old fellow are how they appear to the living.

I immediately thought the same thing.

Definitely going to need a big box of popcorn, but sounds like fun!
Be careful using the f word around here. You might get a demerit.

Interesting title for this thread. I thought the both of them had just died in a sudden and simultaneous old man/crappy actor accident.

Well played response, young man. I see a promising future here in an internet forum career. I'm gonna keep me eye on you...

This filmed in Boston last year, very near my office. For some reason, the production dressed up a newstand to look like a VCR repair shop.

To say the least, I am not a Ryan Reynolds fan. He seems to me to be the pretty boy from central casting in almost everything he is in. I really like Jeff Bridges, though. Still I have reservations about R.I.P.D.. As others have already noted, in the trailer, Bridges looked and sounded like a reincarnation of his Rooster Cogburn performance in the Coen brothers' True Grit. Not saying I won't see it under any circumstances but I need to get some feedback before I do. It looks far too derivative to convince me to see it in the theater on Day One.

Watched this last nite.

Pure check-your-brain-at-the-door kinda movie.

Entertaining enough for a single viewing, but that's it.


Although there are some laughs, poor CGI, a mumbling Jeff Bridges, and lousy writing make this a one-off if nothing else is available IMO.

It's a shame when an actor with Bridges' credentials ends up in something this bad. He might have known though. After all, Ryan Reynolds is his costar.
