Interesting to see Jodie Foster do something so less serious than she is used to.
 
Looks pretty dreadful IMO but here's the poster and a couple of stills.

I'm not looking to see this, but it looks like the kids will enjoy it. It's nice seeing Foster in something light, like said earlier.
 
I have to agree with you, Hunter.
I can't imagine what's gotten into Butler, PS I Love You and now this.
 
Plus I'm sure it's good..cause Foster does choose projects very carefully

It's like he is trying to blow all that badass cred he got from 300. :huh:
 
im sure its just me, but aside from 300, butler always looks drunk
 
This looks like the type of movie I would have enjoyed as a kid - - except in my day they would have cast a hot chick in the Jodi Foster role. :o

Hey middle aged lesbians need work too. No one complains when ugly dudes get cast in tons of roles :whatever:
 
Foster's cute on the posters. :o

 
This isn't on the list to rush out and see.
 
While I hope it ends up being like "Romancing the Stone", I fear it'll instead be like "Six Days Seven Nights". And I do think the overtness of the Butler Indiana Jones look is a bit much. The whip really pushes the whole thing into "Rip-Off-ville". Was it much to make a stylistically similar character that looked at least a tad different?
