Spotlight: The Details (Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Banks, Ray Liotta, Laura Linney)

When a family of raccoons discover worms living underneath the sod in Jeff and Nealy's backyard, this pest problem begins a darkly comic and wild chain reaction of domestic tension, infidelity and murder.

Tobey Maguire (Brothers, Seabiscuit, Spirder-Man) as Jeff Lang
Elizabeth Banks (30 Rock, The Hunger Games, W.) as Nealy Lang
Kerry Washington (Scandal, Django Unchained, For Colored Girls) as Rebecca Mazzoni
Ray Liotta (Date Night, Charlie St. Cloud, Crossing Over) as Peter Mazzoni
Laura Linney (The Big C, John Adams, The Savages) as Lila
Dennis Haysbert (Jarhead, Goodbye Bafana, Breach) as Lincoln

The movie has a funny story concept where a guy starts cheating on his wife and then he starts getting bad luck. With how much Tobey Maguire's character isn't at home you think his wife would catch on. Also if she caught him once, why would she trust him not to do it again? I’m not sure why anyone would cheat on Elizabeth Banks anyway, she's pretty attractive. Tobey Maguire is better at drama comedies than series films or trying to be serious like the original Spiderman, although he can't act high. It gets pretty crazy closer to the end of the movie as things happen I didn't expect to happen. It's an alright movie but it wasn't one of the best I've seen in a while. I like the last half of the movie but even then it isn’t as funny or crazy as I was expecting.
