This is the perfect film for Criterion treatment.
I am pretty sure most of those reading will not agree with my number 1, or even my number 9. That’s okay though. Let me know your own list or thoughts in the comments.
This film is a perfect Sunday afternoon flick. Low commitment and it doesn’t cure the world’s ills. There are some touching moments like the last time you hear that John Denver song. There is some amount of overdoing it with the accent, especially on the peripheral characters. It’s a minor quibble, though. If you like movies, but aren’t shooting for the moon, this is it. Where else are you going to hear Patsy Cline in a bar?
There is no dip in quality or effort in this film. If you enjoyed the first one and can willingly suspend disbelief when it comes to characters that come and go, you should have no problems here. Vaughn’s sense of humor, understanding of visual flair and development of character is still on point here.
