Mr. Brooks

I intended to post something about the movie Mr. Brooks earlier this week, but I didn't. So now I am.

My husband and I watched the movie Mr. Brooks last weekend. It's somewhat similar to the show Dexter on Showtime. A killer tries to keep his dirty habit of killing people while living a regular life.

The movie stars Kevin Costner as Mr. Brooks and Jeff Bridges as his super helpful dark passenger (the killer part of him) named Marshall. The two of them have conversations that no one around them seems to hear. The exchanges between the two of them really make the movie. They are funny and insightful. Marshall often offers advice.

Dane Cook stars as a regular guy who happens to catch Mr. Brooks doing his killing thing. Rather than turn him in to the cops, he wants in on the murder action. He does the serious role thing well.

That's just one of the several problems Mr. Brooks faces over the course of the story. This is probably the best movie I've seen in a long time. It gets major A+.
