The D Train Movie Review and Entertainment Podcast

The D Train, is a nice return to varietal acting for Black. The only problem, is that this film is a mixed bag of good performances, uneven storytelling, funny moments, and an overall waste of time. In a sense, it kind of reminds me of the Johnny Depp film,Mortdecai, from earlier this year; Good acting from the entire main cast, yet a disappointing effort when it's all said and done. Black's character is interesting in his scenes. Picture his 'Bernie' character without the femininity and with way more insecurity. He goes tit-for-tat with his costars James Marsden (Sex Drive), Kathryn Hahn (Step Brothers), and Jeffrey Tambor (The Hangover). His scenes with Marsden are this film's best moments. Marsden also plays a role much different than his other works. His uninhibited character's motto of non-labels and living in the moment, are a breath of fresh air that seems like a role-reversal opposite to Black's. Hahn as Black's wife, gets a few scenes to level things out but, gets held back like most actresses do in the 'wifey' role. Tambor as Black's boss, is as sincere as he is behind the times. I just wish that the traveling setup with his character near the beginning was done in a less forced way
