I remember initially hearing about the Bradley Cooper starring film titled The Words and being intrigued. It sounded like something that had a decent story and a robust cast, featuring Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, Dennis Quaid and Jeremy Irons and now after seeing the trailer I can’t help but to feel disappointed.
The Words looks like a romantic drama that fills itself with too many side-stories and characters to try and cleverly connect them, when a simple story focusing on maybe 2 or 4 characters would have been just as good, if not better. The trailer certainly lacks the focus that I was hoping for and I can’t help but to think that film isn’t going to be much better.
I’m still trying to figure out where Dennis Quaid and Olivia Wilde fit into the story.
The Words opens on September 21st, 2012.
