Chris Pratt: Once upon a time, I woke up. I took a shower with soap.

Chris Pratt was an up and coming hockey star, until one night he got into an accident that changed everything. Chris was left with short term memory loss. Chris still wanting to maintain a normal life, takes a job working as a night janitor at a bank, which leads to his involvement in a well planned heist.

Shoot the casting director!!!

"whoever has the money has the power" the tagline states. I'll tell you something Isla Fisher, Matthew Goode nor the walking cliche named 'Bones' had the money. If they had there's no evidence they ever spent any of it on acting lessons. Their performances, for me spoiled an otherwise solid film. Can't fault Scott Franks script or directing, and the two leads nail their roles. Shoot the casting di... read more

A good movie

I thought it was pretty good. Actually, you have here two movies in one. First, it starts as an interesting drama about a guy who suffers severe brain damage after a terrible car crash and you see how he learns to deal with it. The second half of the movie sees a switch of style and it becomes a rather standard heist movie. I'm not sure if this combination was even really interesting. Does his han... read more

"Watched on: 8/5/13 The Lookout is a surprisingly original heist flick with a stellar cast. I really enjoyed the heck out of this film and I recommend if you haven't seen it to seek it out immediately. By the way JGL is awesome!"

"When I was a kid I was totally obsessed with JGL. I might still be. But this was a totally new kind of role for him and I loved it. He plys the broken boy so well that it was nice to see him put himself back together to save the day. "

December Movie Journal - Xanadon't (24 movies items)

" This debut (and at this time only) feature-lenght directing credit to Scott Frank's name is impressive in a number of fundamental ways that allowed me to overlook a few of the more minor and awkward problems present in his first-time effort. The Lookout succeeds most convincingly in the way its characters are written and fleshed out. The movie does not insist on plot without ensuring that the audience feels like they know these characters first. And I appreciated this fact. Joseph Gordon Lev"

Good Films Stuck at 7 Point Something..... (26 movies items)

" Scott frank has given us some pretty cool films as a writer so when he turns director with The Look Out the expectations were little up and he delivered on the promise. The look out is drama-thriller centred around a janitor who works at a bank with some accidental disability and how he becomes tangled in some heist. Joseph Gordon Levitt is a revelation in the author backed role ably supported by a decent cast. I love the film for the treatment Frank has used for the film. In spite of the f"

"Another recommended heist movie. At first I dind't know where the movie was going. I couldn't see how the robbery fit in the story. Is like two different movies, first a drama, then a heist movie... anyway it wasn't so bad. "
