More Bateman brilliance

bateman1Joe Carnahan’s Smokin’ Aces is a pretty bad movie… a wannabe-Tarantino cynical shoot-’em-up that fancies itself way more clever than it is.

But it contains one of those elevating Jason Bateman appearances I mentioned in my State of Play review.

I couldn’t find this clip on YouTube or any other video sharing service, but I remembered seeing it on a Web site called Intense Guys awhile back and, though the site has since disbanded and pulled down its archives, the cached version of this clip is still available.

So go to this page, scroll down about halfway to the Jason Bateman clip and enjoy.

    Very funny stuff. I had to watch a couple of times to catch all the dialog, he is hilarious.

    So is there some sort of Ben Affleck/Jason Bateman connection I don’t know about?
    They’re both in this Smokin Aces, he stars in the Iraq film with Affleck’s wife, the lovely Jennifer Garner, and now State of Play.

    Just wondering. Meanwhile, what a great idea for a blog – the old one scene wonders. LOVE IT. That one will keep me reflectiing for days 🙂

    and Juno, of course. Also with the lovely Ms. Garner. Maybe she’s the connection?

    Okay, this is just odd. I googled his name and Affleck’s name, and the first entry is a new film they’re doing together called Extract.
