Review: Crazy Rich Asians

"I loved it! Simple, but by no means dumb. Light, but with enough emotional beats and such attention to character detail to keep it from being fluff." - Val 

"If Michelle Yeoh actually gets an Oscar nomination for this, I'll probably cry. (Tears of joy, of course.)" -Cash"

Fine Old Souls

Jason from MNPP here - I don't think it's necessary to give the full "Yes No Maybe So" treatment here for the just-released full trailer for Our Souls At Night because this movie stars real life legends Jane Fonda and Robert Redford together for the first time since The Electric Horseman in 1979 - not to mention marking exactly fifty years since they made Barefoot in the Park together...

... and that is going to be a Yes for anybody who loves the movies, period. But if I was going to do a "Yes No Maybe So" for this movie let me just say that the moment where Matthias Schoenaerts popped up really pushed this movie into the "Heck Yes!" category for me, personally.

Me too, Jane. ME TOO. Our Souls at Night screened out of competition at Venice and the reviews were warm if not piping hot - it sounds like it's mostly just a nice chance to hang out with some folks we'd really like to hang out with for a couple of hours. (Including Judy Greer too!) I'm down. You? It drops on Netflix on September 29th.

Pity it won't be Fonda's 8th Oscar nomination which i'm hoping she'll get before she retires fully.

Yes, please.

Idk, I really don't like Jane Fonda as a person. Some argue she's a war criminal, I don't know if I believe that but still she deserves the hate

I happen to love Jane Fonda (yes, warts and all). Also love that she appears to have recycled her hairstyle from Barefoot in the Park for Our Souls at Night. That's vintage updo realness right there.

And can we talk (more, often) about Judy Greer?! I know that she's a 40-something actress in Hollywood (RIP), but she keeps popping up in nothing parts in forgettable movies and now is shilling on TV for low-budget hotel chains. Apparently Jurassic World didn't pay her that well.

(REALLY good memoir [warts and all] of Jane Fonda's, if you're into those.}

I'm in, and agree with markgordonuk. Just one more nomination, please!

I do not care Fonda for a myriad of reasons ...but I love Redford for a myriad of reasons!!!
Will watch the movie.

I would like to see this but I would pay more money if it has the two of them have very hot explicit sex. I would still like to see Jane Fonda naked.

Just watch the way Cate Blanchett and Kate Winslet looked at Jane Fonda during one of those roundtable discussions...this woman (Fonda) is a legend, like it or not.

The book was slight yet such a charming story. I'm happy to see two of my favorites in age-appropriate roles, unlike Redford's last outing with A Walk in the Woods, which was a dreadful adaptation.

Despite their vintage, these two still have IT.

Redford's last outings were Truth, Pete's Dragon and The Discovery, all of which were age-appropriate roles.
