Rated D for Dumb. Parental guidance: drug use, sunburned children, remarkably boring nudity
Four absurd storylines. You be the judge of which is most contrived.
(1) An American couple try to revive their floundering marriage by taking a motorcoach trip with other privileged white tourists through some godforsaken Middle Eastern desert.
(2) A young goat herder with a high-powered rifle takes a pot-shot at the bus, unintentionally striking the woman – an amazing feat of marksmanship, since she’s sitting on the far side of the bus.
(3) The couple’s nanny takes their kids to a family wedding in Mexico, where things go from good to not-so-good to bad to worse to oh my gawd those kids are gonna die.
(4) A rebellious deaf Japanese teen acts out her angst by removing her underpants and kissing a dentist, then taking off all her clothes to seduce a police detective.
And the Wasted Talent trophy goes to:
The American wife played by Cate Blanchett, who bleeds a lot and pees in a makeshift bedpan.
I hope you weren't expecting anything profound.
If I ever need to plead insanity, this blog will provide valuable evidence.
