You may have heard Jack Reacher: Never Go Back is getting beat here in the states by Tyler Perry and his latest Madea movie, Boo! A Madea Halloween. My husband read one review that called it a poor man’s Mission Impossible, so while we enjoyed Tom Cruise in the first Jack Reacher film, and it’s playing in theaters all over the world right now, we didn’t see it. We took a two and a half hour walk around our hood instead, marveling at the number of people out walking like we were. It was one of those beautiful still-warm California autumn days and we weren’t the only ones enjoying it. The tables at Cafe Midi were full but since we were sweaty from walking and not exactly looking French-chic in our tres casual walking clothes, we decided not to stop at the French cafe and hit Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf instead. Is it silly at my age to let a stylish French cafe intimidate me? Could I not just pull up a charming little chair under an umbrella and order a cafe au lait without worrying about being on the best dressed list? No, I could not!
Instead I got my French fix from this trailer for Never Go Back dubbed in Français proving, as always, almost everything sounds better in French, including Tom Cruise.
Boo! Cuz, you know, I’m a Tom Cruise fan. I’d still like to see it but it sounds so lackluster I’ll probably wait until it comes to cable TV.
Did you get out to see Never Go Back on opening weekend? What did you think?
