I'm actually impressed by Affleck playing the bad guy, in the trailer he seems to pull off the right amount of smugness.

Affleck plays a decent smug badguy. He was good in the boiler room

He was the ultimate bad guy in Mallrats!

Saw a clip of this on TV earlier, looks pretty decent could be enjoyable. Didn't realize it was directed by the guy that did Lincoln Lawyer, which I thought was pretty well directed/paced.

He actually sounds exactly the same as he did in Boiler Room in that trailer. Same exact intonation, tone. One of my favorite movies.

The trailer is laughably bad. It comes across as a parody. Affleck and Timberlake playing dress-up. These guys are marginal actors and the trailer and TV spots really drill that point home. I have a feeling this is going to be a cheese fest of the highest order. Hope I'm wrong.

Will definitely check this out via redbox, reviews be damned.

Timberlake stinks IMO, as an "actor". There's something about his voice when he talks that just gets under my skin. He's a decent enough singer (even though not my type of music). And he's fine on "SNL" here and there. But I can't stand him in movies. I'm alright with Ben in front of the camera. This movies does look terrible however.

I dunno. I like the idea but Timberlake is an instant no-go for me. He's a horrendous actor. Like bad.

The great David Fincher couldn't get a performance out of him in "The Social Network". Again, IMO. Whenever there was talk about an Oscar nomination for him, I just laughed. He was so out of his league in that movie. Every time he's on the screen, I just say to myself "Look, it's Justin Timberlake". How the guy continues to get film work is a huge mystery to me. Especially when there are actually people who can act.

Saw the trailer. Looks like generic shit. I actually like Affleck as an actor now but this looks shitty.

Well, looks like it's as bad as the trailer seems to indicate. 23%

This looks like a movie Ben Affleck would have made in 2003.

Yes, I saw this last weekend and thought that the relatively high production values and "big name" actors were probably more than the story deserved.

It was fun enough to watch - we went primarily because it wasn't too long - but I thought it was more akin to a tv movie or a superior episode of "Burn Notice" or the like.
