How about Moronic People?
February 25, 2015
How about Moronic People? A law-abiding but cash-strapped American couple in London finds a bag of money in the basement flat they had rented to a lowlife of questionable career goals who just died of a heroin overdose. They decide to keep the money. What could go wrong? Don’t these people ever go to the movies?
James Franco and Kate Hudson play it so generic, they nearly disappear (though in Franco’s case this is a plus), and Tom Wilkinson seems to be channeling Columbo as the investigating copper. Final “thrilling” scene in a house being refurbished plays like Home Alone. Japanese title: Perfect Plan. (90 min)
