Pakistan-born comedian Kumail Nanjiani and grad student Emily Gardner fall in love but struggle as their cultures clash. When Emily contracts a mysterious illness, Kumail finds himself forced to face her feisty parents, his family's expectations, and his true feelings.
A young girl comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who's an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children's imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.
Logan Lucky was an entertaining film. The comedic heist involved a range of interesting characters with decent back stories.
The film executed its film and central premise quite well. It contained the right dose of comedy so you didn't take the heist too seriously. However the film could have been funnier, it had enough ridiculous characters to take it to another comedic level. The scene with Daniel Craig explaining the science behind explosions was a touch of genius. The team of misfits or unusual characters added a great level of comedy and entertainment. It also had a great twist at the end when we learned that Jimmy Logan had in fact put away several bags of cash to divide it among his family and associates. We also saw a relentless FBI agent follow the gang to the very end. The film also had a nice, lazy and southern feel to it. It showcased classic country music and showed simple folks and simple living.
If the film had taken that extra step in terms of comedy or sentimentality or both it could have been more enjoyable as it had the right elements. It is a good night at the pictures but the film is somewhat forgettable. The cast more than carry this film as we see some great performances.
