Family-Faith Film Review: The Next Three Days
By Catholic Office of Film and Broadcasting
Implausible, ethically dubious thriller about a Pittsburgh college professor (Russell Crowe) who decides to spring his wife (Elizabeth Banks) from a prison where she’s serving time for murder. Writer-director Paul Haggis embeds faulty moral logic inside his far-fetched premise. Together with certain plot contrivances, its endorsement of seriously flawed behavior — a laudable belief in his spouse cannot excuse some of the choices Crowe’s character makes — renders this otherwise well-made movie difficult to enjoy. One instance of rough language, a smattering of profanity and crass terms, some gunplay and other nongraphic violence, an off-screen suicide attempt, drug dealing, brief sexual banter. A-III — adults. (PG-13) 2010
