Wondering why times are missing?

Mr. Brooks

Kevin Costner is cast severely against type as a mild-mannered suburban hubby who is occasionally controlled by his alter ego, a vicious serial killer embodied by William Hurt. A sleazy amateur photographer (Dane Cook, also playing against type) finds out about our hero's little split personality problem and tries to blackmail him. (Is it too much to hope that Cook gets slaughtered?) The film nearly chokes to death on subplots (including one with Demi Moore as a soon-to-be-divorced detective), but the story is clever and Costner does a commendable job. 120 minutes R.
