Definitely. No one would ever pay attention to average-looking guys like Brad Pitt or George Clooney if they were planning a heist, lol. Not to mention, I'm sure Sandra Bullock and Cate Blanchett would wear evening gowns and high heels with full makeup as they scouted the location, thus making it that much harder for them to get away with the job.

Ha. both these comments are fantastic, as long as your only objective is to 'win' a petty argument on the internet or get some lolz for snark.

However you're both ignoring (or pretending to not understand) the point, which is that regardless of how good looking or ugly Hollywood actors are, they are, at the very least, acceptable stand-ins for the real world heist crews, who are always men whose appearance is absolutely dependent on going unnoticed (think Joey Bishop).

Unless it's a glitzy Vegas heist like Now You See Me, but even then the crew will be all male, because, well... whoever heard of a female magician? (again, not saying this is a good thing, but I only care about what's true and accurate).

I feel like I'm laboring here to make a point that is as obvious as it is common sense, which usually means it's time to throw in the towel.

Anyone else kintnerboy has had a stroke or something? It's like when that newscaster started talking gibberish on the air.

You just praised Ocean's Eleven, which then was pointed out for being unrealistic, and now you attack others for being right. Huh?

Just so that you know, there are all-women heist teams in the real world. And when it comes to magicians, roughly 5% of them are women. And Isla Fisher is a woman, and part of the 4-member "Horsemen" team in Now You See Me.

I got see a fraction of this recently, it looks amazing visually but how the writers still have jobs is beyond me, utter tripe. If this is the improved version I can't imagine how bad the original was.

Is it as plodding and aimless as the director's previous film, Godzilla?

Saw it last night. IMAX 3D. Loathed it. IMHO, it was devoid of originality, intelligence, wit, style, charm, excitement, and heart.

And I loved The Force Awakens.

I don't get why people are calling this the best Star Wars since Empire (which I also loved).

Is that your response to the movie or my post?
