It’s funny sometimes how a movie can be so preposterous, yet manage to still remain fun and entertaining that you enjoy it regardless. That’s the best way to describe my experience watching the National Treasure DVD this past weekend.
The story itself is rather over the top, more often than not stretching the limits of believability. But the snappy dialogue, great chemistry among the stars, and the silliness of the plot really help make you just sit back and relax your brain. You’re better off not really considering whether or not much of the story is realistic, just enjoy the ride.
