The fantasy of every guy featured in Wuss Daily.

There's a lot of wishful thinking here but, hey, that's what movies do.

It has a great cast, good eye candy AND it's either hilarious or too real to see Belushi play a washed-up actor.

They have fun with this and it really comes through. I can watch it every 2 - 3 years.

An enjoyable movie...

"Joe Somebody" turned out to be quite an entertaining movie, taking into consideration that this is a Tim Allen movie. Let's face it, that he haven't had all that many impressive movies. But every now and again a good movie pops up here and there.

I didn't read the synopsis for "Joe Somebody", and I didn't really know anything about it prior to sitting down and watching it. And I did sit down to watch it because of Tim Allen, as when he does make a good movie then the movie is usually quite entertaining.

It turned out that "Joe Somebody" was actually had a rather good story and some fun enough moments. And on that aspect, don't expect this to be a comedy movie that will have you laughing so hard that you will be in tears. However, the storyline was actually one with some depth and thought behind it.

Tim Allen actually carried this movie quite well with his performance, and he was really perfectly cast for the particular role. Patrick Warburton was equally well cast for his role, because he does have that semi-bully thing going on, just a shame that his role in the movie wasn't bigger, because he could have brought lots more to the movie. Jim Belushi also was quite good in the role, although it was a kind of surreal to see him as a martial arts instructor, but his role was quite good.

I was genuinely entertained with "Joe Somebody" and it really was a story that hit home right away. This is not your average run-of-the-mill comedy, and that is what makes it a good movie.

Just not very good.

A lot of the reviewers for this movie wrote that it was "not a very good movie but..." A lot of the reviewers wanted to like this movie, as did I. A number of them even said it was a clean family movie. However, by trying to be a "clean" movie that kids could watch, with a strange "sappy" ending that just didn't fit (at all), and being a believable drama about midlife crisis, failed marriage, workplace violence, and corporate ethics, they ended up with a movie that often seemed far too tedious for young viewers, and not genuine for older viewers; in trying to appeal to everyone, they missed the mark to appeal to anyone. Which is why I think most reviews stop short of saying they simply didn't like this movie, and say it was easily forgotten only seconds after turning it off. It had potential, and Tim Allen is an amicable actor to watch. But he's had far better films to his credit.
