STONE (John Curran). 105 minutes. Opens Friday (October 15). For venues, trailers and times, see Movies. Rating: N
In a plot no one on Earth has ever imagined before, a hard-?case Detroit parole officer (Robert De Niro) on the verge of retirement finds himself flummoxed by his latest applicant (Edward Norton), who claims to be in the middle of a spiritual rebirth, and the applicant’s alluring wife (Milla Jovovich), whose idea of “personal outreach” is a little more specific than most.
It’s hard to say which element of this risible drama is sillier: Angus MacLachlan’s portentous screenplay, cobbled together from half a dozen of Jim Thompson’s lesser pot?boilers, or co-?star Norton’s sustained impression of Bubbles from The Wire.
Of course, there’s really no need to pick one over the other there’s enough terrible in this movie to go around.
