Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, and Pete From Mad Men Look Pretty Silly in In Time

)

Oh, In Time. It sounds so cool — a movie about an economy based on time instead of money, where everyone stops aging at 25, and Justin Timberlake, Amanda Seyfried, Matt Bomer, and Cillian Murphy are all there. But in execution, it all looks a little bit silly. Even the introductions between Timberlake and Vincent Kartheiser sound kind of cornball, because it's hard to buy Mad Men's Pete as a "Philippe." The action sequence of Timberlake kidnapping Amanda Seyfried has its cool moments, like Timberlake grabbing a guard's fist and making the thug punch himself, but if there's something goofier than the futuristic French maid outfits on display as the characters race through the kitchen, we've yet to see it. You can tell Timberlake's a badass because he knocks over a whole bowl of future lettuce like it's nothing! [Yahoo]
