Bradley Cooper’s deep blue eyes and charming handsomeness cannot salvage Cameron Crowe’s mediocre, apathetic attempt at a romantic comedy. “Brian Gilcrest” (Cooper) is a washed-up military contractor, hired by another “Hollywood” ubiquitous, self-serving, billionaire (Bill Murray, minimally effective) as part of a US space program in Hawaii; he is chaperoned by “Captain Allison Ng” (Emma Stone), whose perky, pesky, energized demeanor is gratingly annoying; plus being part Asian? Too drastic of a mental vault. Rachel McAdams, as “Tracey” , Brian’s ex-lover is simpering, saccharine, shallow; obvious why Brian dumped her. John Krasinski, “Woody”, Tracey’s mute husband; silence protected him from the jejune script.
“Sayonara”,woefully, was not actualized quick enough in “Aloha”.
ONE & 1/2 STARS!
