People Like Us : Movie Review

The last thing that anyone expected from the guys behind such sci-fi fare like "Transformers," J.J. Abrams’ "Star Trek" reboot, and the Fox series "Fringe" was a small, adult drama, but that’s exactly what they’ve delivered with "People Like Us." Co-written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Jody Lambert, and marking the former’s directorial debut, the movie takes a relatively implausible premise (although it's supposedly based on true events) and manages to make it more enjoyable than it probably deserves to be thanks to some solid performances by its cast. It’s funny to think that a movie about a talking teddy bear isn’t the most far-fetched film being released in theaters this week, but as long as you’re willing to suspend disbelief, "People Like Us" might surprise you.
