Rock the Kasbah

Did a search, did not find it.

I liked the movie. It was not Bill Murry's best movie(by a long shot) however it was quirky enough and had some great one liners that is worth picking up from Redbox and wasting a 1.5 hours.




<<<<<<<<SPOILER>>>>>>>SORT OF>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>











The scene of the plan ride into Afghanistan brought back some painful memories of flying on Scarianna Airways.

The scene where Bill Murry is with Bruce Willis and gets hit with an IED is alone worth the price of the Redbox rental.

Kate Hudson's role helped save the movie from being a total disaster.

Saw it had pretty low reviews, but for the price of Redbox and after your review will have to check it out.

With nothing happening at all in Lander WY on a Tuesday evening, I ran over to Safeway and grabbed it. I have been wanting to see it, and thought it was a good night to make it happen.

I thought it was a decent movie, with some great one liners, and the music that accompanied it was great. There was a couple of slow spots but I think it was me drifting off and not the movie.

The role Kate Hudson played saved parts of the movie and the various outfits she wore, is what (i believe) made me drift off.

A good slow evening or rainy afternoon movie.

Damn good movie! Enjoyable. Do not understand why got the negative reviews at all. Bill Murray, was typical Bill Murray.

Well worth watching.

I briefly dated a really cute elementary school teacher out there. Nice place. You should be outside instead of watching movies.

Watched this today. Solid B.
Streaming on Netflix.

Hudson looked smoking hot in this movie. Murray was his typical awesome understated self.

What a good movie. Watching it again this evening, as recommended to couple members here in another post, and remember how classic Bill Murray it is. Critics really got it wrong, probably cause unless you have been to Afghanistan you will not get some of the references and jokes.

Well worth your viewing time if have not seen. Hey, Bruce Willis and Bill Murray in a movie together - ya know it has to be good!

Great movie, would never have guessed from looking at the IMDB rating. Thanks LP for the heads up. Will probably watch it again on a work trip this week.
