Absolutely Anything

Absolutely Anything, 2015 starring Simon Pegg, Kate Beckinsale and Sanjeev Bhaskar.  To start, I had never heard of this movie but it looked funny.  Funny it was, for the most part.  The story is about a council of aliens that discovers the existence of earth and decide to challenge it.  They want to see whether they are worthy, if not they are to be destroyed.  They pick one human at random to give absolute powers to do anything and they sit back and watch whether their human chooses the powers for good or evil.

In comes our hero, Neil (Pegg). He discovers his powers and begins unknowingly using them.  With his hatred for his job, his infatuation with a neighbor (Beckinsale) and his everyday problems the comedy from this point doesn’t stop.  It reminded me of an older Hollywood comedy with lots of fun raw comedy.  This was a fun movie to watch.

Though not the funniest thing out there it still holds itself up as entertaining, which is to me, the end result.
