Bradley Cooper's first movie as the solo headlining star made some money this weekend and came in at #1 at the box office, but I thought it kind of sucked. A pretty good first act and interesting premise gets squandered, but what irritated me the most is I never liked Cooper's character, didn't agree with almost anything he did, and didn't want him or anyone else in the movie to succeed. There are a lot more interesting possibilities from the premise that Limitless could have explored than what it actually did.
How abrupt was that segue from ham radio story to Quagmire's baby story? It literally went from "I want my money back" to "oh, look, a baby." Even at its worst, The Simpsons was never that bad with transitions.
