American Made

Ready for some high-flying action, with lots of fun, suspense and adventure? Of course you are! At long last, it’s time for our review of Tom Cruise’s latest film – American Made! (We might be a little jealous that most other countries got to see it before we did, but we forgive you, Universal! The movie was well worth the wait!)

Smartass Summary: The other other other one with the airplanes.

Slightly less smartass summary: If regular people acted like Tom Cruise characters.

Ok ok, REAL summary: Family man holds down three jobs to provide for his wife and kids.

Overall opinion:
Buttered Popcorn loves this movie! It’s funny, exciting and touching all at once. American Made is based on a true story, and includes lots of little tidbits of history that add both to our understanding of the plot, and to our enjoyment of the movie. But you don’t have to know a thing about politics, or the late ’70’s/early ’80’s to understand and enjoy the movie. Your friendly neighborhood drug smuggler will guide you through it all, and tell you everything you need to know.
