Adaptation. will always be a classic, and Matchstick Men is pretty darn good also. Haven't seen Bad Lieutenant, but it was pretty well-reviewed.

I keep forgetting he was in Matchstick Men. The movie was highly underrated, and Cage himself was overshadowed by both Sam Rockwell and Alison Lohman. For that matter, Lord of War wasn't too bad, but it's Jared Leto's performance that really stuck with me.

Re: Nic Cage stars in what looks to be the Falls funniest Comedy.

think the last Nick Cage film i really enjoyed was Face Off really...

I know it's not a fantastic flick, but it's one i can chill out and enjoy randomly for some odd reason

Well I might be the only one, but I think it looks cool. I'll see anything with Nic Cage in it.

He does make a high proportion of 'so bad they're good' films. Drive Angry was bonkers, but hugely enjoyable.

I enjoyed Knowing, although his typical "run around like a madman yelling at people" routine in the subway should've had him in prison when the solar flare hit.

I was in New Orleans last year and they were shooting this movie right across from where I was staying. I was interested in watching it just to see if a scene I watched getting shot would actually be in it... but this movie looks bad. Even for a Nicolas Cage movie.

Re: Nic Cage stars in what looks to be the Falls funniest Comedy.

That looks awful. Honestly, the best Nic Cage stuff right now are the parodies of what a joke he has become as an actor (which he sometimes even participates in, so he has a good sense of humor, at least).

Nic Cage's Agent (College Humor):

Re: Nic Cage stars in what looks to be the Falls funniest Comedy.

This seems no better or worse than most generic action films that come out which, I guess, means it'll be a pretty bad movie.

Re: Nic Cage stars in what looks to be the Falls funniest Comedy.

I guess the fact that it blatantly uses every cliche available while not even making an attempt to hide that fact. Is what I find the most comical.

Looks a lot more fun than the early fifteen or so minutes of Taken that I saw.

You left after fifteen minutes? Oh man that's when it really got good.

(I may or may not be lying).

Re: Nic Cage stars in what looks to be the Falls funniest Comedy.

Taken is the guiltiest of guilty pleasure movies. There's literally no depth in it or any attempt to have any meaning. Yet it's still a lot of fun that even an elitist jerk like myself found it fun to watch.
