It was FUN !!!

RIPD has got to be the dumbest, stupidest, irreverent...did I say dumbest...and funny comedy I've seen in ages...

It was never supposed to be a blockbuster, I don't think, but it is a respectable jaunt into the ridiculous fantasy world of life after death...with some weird zombie type monsters thrown in for flavor...some of the prat falls are truly bizarre, but they just add to the humorous nature of the "out there" story. Reynolds and Bridges are death cops of sorts, with the responsibility to keep the evil zombies from taking over the world...etcetera etcetera...

Awww heck, take a chance and see this one...it really is a fun two hours...

The law enforcement version of Death Becomes Her

Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, and Kevin Bacon star in "RIPD" from 2013.

The story concerns a Boston cop, Nick (Reynolds) who, along with his partner Hayes (Bacon)discover a cache of gold while busting drug- dealers. Nick buries his, and then decides against stealing. He informs Hayes that he is going to turn in the gold as evidence from the bust, but he won't mention that Hayes committed theft as well.

Well we all know what's going to happen and sure enough, as soon as it can look like a shooting while bringing down a vicious gang, Hayes lets Nick have it. Nick leaves behind his wife, Julia (Stephanie Szostak).

Nick is sucked up into a vortex and finds himself in front of a Proctor (Mary Louise Parker) - he's still in uniform. She informs him that he's a member now of R.I.P.D. (Rest in Peace Department), Boston division. His assignment is to pair up with Roy (Jeff Bridges) - obviously once a cop in the old, wild west - and go hunting for undeads, evil people who actually died but haven't yet descended and are sticking around. They wear disguises so they don't look dead.

Nick, of course, would also like to bring down Hayes and check on his wife. He and Roy have avatars also so that people can see them, but not as themselves. Roy is a gorgeous blonde (Marisa Miller, in real life a Victoria's Secret model) and Nick is an old Asian American (James Hong).

Silly movie, predictable, but a decent rental. There were a couple of good scenes - one was Nick going into the vortex, another was the dead cops chasing of one of the undeads, who is wreaking havoc on the city. On the slapsticky side, but okay.

A well deserved box office failure.

It's easy to see what they're aiming for with R.I.P.D.: it's Men in Black with a supernatural twist. The plot sees a young deceased cop, Nick (Ryan Reynolds taking on the Will Smith role), being recruited by a special organisation (R.I.P.D. as opposed to M.I.B) dedicated to capturing dead people who are roaming the Earth illegally, having escaped judgement. Together with older, experienced mentor Roy (Jeff Bridges in the Tommy Lee Jones role), Nick investigates a case involving fragments of a gold artefact sought by his his ex-partner Hayes (Kevin Bacon), the man who killed him.

Other parallels that can be drawn with Men In Black include the titular organisation's headquarters, which are extremely reminiscent of the bustling M.I.B. HQ, the use of inventive specialised weapons (although there's nothing as fun as the 'noisy cricket'), and the untrustworthy informer (again, nowhere near as good as Tony Shalhoub's Jeebs). Even the film's tag-line 'Defending our world one soul at a time' is close to M.I.B.'s 'your first, last and only line of defense'.

All of these similarities result in a distinct lack of freshness, but the problems don't end there: lousy CGI effects, a complete absence of genuine laughs, and Bridges insufferable performance all go to ensure that a good time is not had by all. In short, R.I.P.D. is C.R.A.P.
