Next... time I'll stay home
<...an Ill Literate post...>
On Tuesday, the classic car broker who swindled Nicolas Cage and others was sentenced to five years in prison and $1.8 million in restitution. Cage alone lost $300,000.
Today, the shoe's on the other foot: Cage is trying to swindle moviegoers out of their hard-earned cash with Next, a laughably lame action flick with sci-fi undertones.
Even the highly-distracting presence of Jessica Biel can't save ... um ... what was I saying again?
Biggest problem with Next? Its utterly preposterous concept. No, I don't mean the fact that Cage's character can see into the future and alter it any way he wishes. I mean the notion that Biel's character would, over the course of 48 hours, fall head over heels for this guy.
