Super 4

It's JJ Abrams, how bad could it be?

It's about some kids who are trying to make a movie. Meanwhile, there's a deputy (who's also a father, but they misfire that point continually) who's trying to grow a pair. At the same time, the Cloverfield monster returns to rampage around the town.

Have to say, Moviebob nailed this one pretty good. This does read as three rather distinct plot lines that just so happen to take place in the same locale, but otherwise have little connection between each other.

Moreover, one plot line is irrelevant, and when the other two combine there is no level of disbelief suspension that will allow that to happen. At one point, I was thinking 'Scooby Doo', but even that reads as more believable, and I'm including the talking dog!

To be honest, the only reason why I might not suggest, say, illegally download a terrible quality cam of the movie is that I doubt they'll include the end credits, which contains the only moment that made me actually enjoy the movie.
