This week on the Monday Night Movie Club, Jacob Smith, Rob Motto, and Rick Aragon review three movies on one show. Jacob will review House Party (2023), Rob will review A Man Called Otto (2022), and Rick will review Plane (2023).
House Party: Out of money, down on their luck and freshly fired from their low-lift jobs as house cleaners, aspiring club promoters/best buds Damon and Kevin decide to host the party of the year at LeBron James’ exclusive mansion, the site of their last cleaning job.
Plane: Commercial pilot Brodie Torrance makes a successful emergency landing after his plane sustains critical damage from a storm. He soon realizes that the island he’s landed on is Jolo, a remote area of the Philippines ruled by heavily armed anti-government militias. A local militia leader finds the passengers and takes them hostage, intending to secure large ransoms from their families. With international rescue experts struggling to find their location and running out of time, Brodie is left with no choice but to free a convicted murderer he was tasked with transporting and team up with him to save the passengers and find a way off the island.
A Man Called Otto: Otto is a grump who’s given up on life following the loss of his wife and wants to end it all. When a young family moves in nearby, he meets his match in quick-witted Marisol, leading to a friendship that will turn his world around.
