The Next Three Days

Rated PG-13 133 minutes 2010

The only way to really sum up The Next Three Days, a remake of French film Pour Elle, is by quoting Homer Simpson: It is “the suckiest bunch of suck that ever sucked.” Russell Crowe especially sucks in the overly somber role of John Brennan, a man obsessed with freeing his wrongly convicted wife, Lara (Elizabeth Banks). Just about everyone in the movie is miscast, from Banks (who is far more effective in comedy films) to Liam Neeson as an escape expert with a Brooklyn accent. Each actor is overly sorrowful and humorless, and just about every supporting character is underutilized; in a film with a runtime of more than two hours, one would think that character development wouldn’t be an issue, but it is, with decent actors such as Olivia Wilde and Brian Dennehy completely wasted.
