My Review:

I’m probably dating myself if I say that I remember the TV series Miami Vice.  And I wasn’t really a fan.  So when the movie came out I wasn’t rushing out to see it.  But it was my husband’s birthday, and his choice, and after dragging him to dozens of chick-flicks I figured I owed him.  In this version, directed by Michael Mann, we’ve got Colin Farrell playing Sonny Crockett and Jamie Foxx playing Ricardo Tubbs.  The clothes are better, the cars are faster, the guns are bigger… but it’s really the same old Miami Vice.  Lots of action, lots of style, not a lot of substance.  And in this case, it’s a little difficult to follow the story – mainly because you can’t understand anyone who is speaking!  Colin Farrell doesn’t do a good American accent, and many of the other characters are foreign and English isn’t their first language.  They don’t enunciate, and Greg and I were constantly looking at each other quizzically with “what did they say?” There are some strong female characters – I always like that.  All in all the movie wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be.  So it was a fun evening out – we laughed all the way home.
