We’ve all been there: You save and save to finally take your dream vacation and then hook up with some cool bohemians in the wilderness, but then soon enough you realize your new vacation travelling buddies actually want to stab you in your sleep to wear your skin as hats. Bummer.
In keeping with Hollywood’s long-standing tradition of providing valuable cautionary tales for wholly ridiculous premises, The Perfect Getaway “stars” Steve Zahn* and Milla Jovovich as the erstwhile ‘please-don’t-chop-off-my-face’ tourists who are pitted against the Lonely Planet hipster version of The Devil’s Rejects (played by Chris Hemsworth, Marley Shelton, Kiele Sanchez, and Timothy Olyphant, who apparently has a ‘smug douchebag’ clause in his standard contract).
When Cap’n threw this in the post queue, I must admit I was a bit befuddled as to why we’d waste the bit-space on it, but then I realized… Chris Hemsworth (the faux-hawked Reject) will be rocking our faces in 2011 as none other than THOR. Oh, hells yes.
For everyone else, you may begin rooting for Milla Jovovich’s death when A Perfect Getaway assaults your local theater on August 7th.
*Will someone please realize that Steve Zahn is a ridiculously talented man who deserves far, far better than Hollywood’s generic sassy man roles?
