Poor Vince Vaughn. Man o man, I actually love me some fun non-stop riffing Vince Vaughn but his recent films have consisted of some very bad choices. “Unfinished Business” is easily one of the worst. He also teamed up with an odd group consisting of Tom Wilkinson and Dave Franco (who is completely not funny at all), which makes it worse for him. This should have been called “Unfunny Business” since there wasn’t a single joke in the entire film that I even cracked a smile for. A BIG pass!
Official Premise: Vince Vaughn stars as a hard-working entrepreneur who travels to Europe with his two associates (Dave Franco, Tom Wilkinson) to close the most important business deal of their lives. But the journey quickly spins out of control as the hapless trio encounters all kinds of crazy obstacles, including Oktoberfest bar brawls, hotel foul-ups, foreign GPS directions, and a global fetish festival. In the end, these guys gone wild might just land the deal…if they can survive the trip. Bottoms up!
Fox delivered this film with a Blu-ray plus digital HD copy. Nothing special on the Blu-ray specs here, the 1080p transfer was typical comedy blah, nothing special. Same goes for the DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track, which didn’t deliver anything special either. The special features surprisingly were better than the entire film (but not by much). There is about 30 minutes of deleted and alternate footage, a photo gallery including the trio being funny and lastly “Show Me Your Business” has the cast discussing their experience.
