Ladies — you have the perfect date movie to whisk your guy to this weekend — ‘Parker.’
You’ll love the film because a) it’s a totally engrossing action thriller and b) your man will be happy.
Jason Statham, playing an intense, intelligent professional thief who isn’t afraid to maim and kill his enemies, is a complicated character.
On one hand, you’d never want to cross him — he will follow you to the ends of the earth to exact his revenge. But on the other hand, he abhors hurting innocent people and bends over backwards to protect regular folks caught in his crosshairs, as well as the people he loves.
J.Lo Stuns In ‘Parker’
One of those regular people who gets mixed up with Parker is Leslie, played with warmth, humor, and deep empathy by Jennifer Lopez.
Leslie is a down-on-her-luck, divorced real estate agent in Palm Beach trying desperately to make just one sale so she can stave off creditors trying to repossess her car.
And Jennifer conveys Leslie’s desperation and her smarts with completely relatable vulnerability.
As she gets drawn into Parker’s daring scheme to reap revenge on former colleagues who double-crossed him and to steal a socialite’s “ransom,” Leslie is torn between terror and excitement.
Is This The First Movie That You AND Your Guy Will Totally Love?
You’ll be on the edge of your seat as the plot twists and turns.
Your guy will love it for all the action and eye-popping hand-to-hand combat. You’ll love it because highly muscled Jason Statham isn’t at all hard on the eyes, and you’ll laugh, cry, and hold your breath along with Jennifer.
Best of all, your guy will thank you for not forcing him to sit through a chick-flick, but you’ll have just as much fun at Parker as he does!
