'Unleashed': Film Review

'Unleashed': Film Review
Lonely viewers may find themselves eyeing their pets wistfully after seeing Finn Taylor’s romantic comedy about a young woman whose male cat and dog come to very hunky human life. Although it never quite lives up to the satirical possibilities of its high-concept premise, Unleashed delivers some mildly enjoyable laughs thanks to its engaging female lead and the exuberantly physical performances of her co-stars.

Kate Micucci, part of the musical comedy duo Garfunkel and Oates, plays the central role of Emma, an app designer (the go-to profession in movies these days). After her boyfriend betrays her by stealing her latest...

Exclusive Unleashed Clip: I Will Come To You

Pets? Men? Who can tell the difference? The success of a silly premise always depends on the ability of the performers to commit to said premise with a serious conviction. In the case of Unleashed, the deadpan humor looks like it's delivered perfectly by Kate Micucci, Justin Chatwin, Sean Astin and Steve Howey. Micucci has shown her range of comic talents in The Little Hours and Don't Think Twice while Chatwin and Howey are familiar (to me, at least) from TV's Shameless, and Sean Astin, is, well Sean Astin, whose performances I always enjoy. Here's the synopsis: Emma, a brilliant but awkward app designer, moves to San Francisco after a massive betrayal by her boyfriend with only her beloved pets, an adorable cat and an...

Trailer for Pet Transformation Comedy 'Unleashed' with Kate Micucci

Love is a four-legged word. Level 33 Entertainment has debuted a new official trailer for the indie comedy titled Unleashed, written and directed by Finn Taylor. Yet another pet transformation movie, instead of a person turning into an animal, this time it's two animals turning into two people - two perfect guys. Kate Micucci stars as a woman who moves to San Francisco with her two pets after a break up, and learns about herself when they become these guys. Also starring Justin Chatwin, Steve Howey, Sean Astin, Illeana Douglas, Hana Mae Lee, and Josh Brener. This definitely looks very cheesy and almost way too quirky, but I like that the guys still act like her cat and dog, that makes it a bit more interesting. Have a look below. Here's the new official trailer (+ poster) for Finn Taylor's Unleashed, direct from YouTube: When a cosmic event turns Emma's (Kate Micucci) beloved pets,

Movie Review – Unleashed (2016)

Unleashed, 2016.

Written and Directed by Finn Taylor.

Starring Kate Micucci, Justin Chatwin, Steve Howey, Illeana Douglas, Hana Mae Lee, and Sean Astin.

Synopsis:

When a cosmic event turns Emma’s dog and cat into two perfect guys, Emma reconsiders her outlook on dating, hilariously works out her trust issues, and ultimately learns to love herself.

The plot of Finn Taylor’s Unleashed doesn’t take much to explain. A cat and a dog become men one night and try to re-enter their owner’s life as humans. Far from the target audience for this picture, I’m not a pet owner and have cared for betta fish, but a standard recitation of plot doesn’t serve to expound this movie enough.

Unleashed is an actor’s playground and it’s the cast’s commitment to staying in character that takes this picture further than feel good lite cinema. Shameless co-stars,
