Highly Suspect Reviews: Collateral Beauty

  • by

Will Smith is sad. Yes, again. This time it’s because his 6 year old daughter died. It’s been two years and he’s letting his advertising business sink because he can’t stop obsessing and being angry. Angry enough to write letters to abstract ideas like Time, Death, and Love. “Piss off, Love, you suck”. That kind of thing. Ok, maybe a bit more eloquent than that. Unfortunately, his close friends and business partners (Ed Norton, Kate Winslet, and Michael Pena) are panicking, because if he won’t engage at all, he won’t sign the papers that could save everyone’s jobs and the business. So, they hire three actors (Helen Mirren, Keira Knightley, and Jacob Latimore) to pretend to be these abstract ideas to Smith to break him out of his funk. What good friends <sarcasm>.

So, not really the film they sold us on with the trailers, to be sure. And boy, do we come to some big disagreements as to the quality of it. Listen to Chris, Elliott, Frank, and Harris almost come to blows (not really) about it.
