Some of us are starting to enjoy Colin Farrell now that he's no longer a heavily touted, matinee-idol-in-training. Lately, he's doing roles that have him acting like a scenery-chewing loon, and if you're in the market for these, allow me to direct you to his gleefully ham-fisted turn in the new Fright Night remake. Farrell plays Jerry, a vampire, as a visibly shifty psychopath. The movie's almost as ridiculously entertaining as Farrell's performance, which by the way has him pulling off such nutty moves as hissing at beams of sunlight in mid-sentence and casually telling prospective victims "Catch ya later!" as they run away. Unfortunately, director Craig Gillespie (Lars and the Real Girl, Mr. Woodcock), once again shows why he shouldn't be allowed around film equipment.
