Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on May 1, 2016

special-correspondentsSpecial Correspondents is Ricky Gervais’ new Netflix movie with Eric Bana, Vera Farmiga, and Kelly MacDonald, about two New York radio journalists who are supposed to go to Ecuador to cover a war, but instead hide out in NYC and fake their reports. It’s not very good. A few laughs here and there, and Vera Farmiga is quite good in this, but I felt like this was a setup for a satire of the news media, when instead it was a… story about the loser white guy growing some confidence and realizing the cute girl likes him, which is a story that’s been told a million times before.
