While Nicolas Cage tends to get the brunt of criticism/derision for jobs likely accepted based on how many zeros appear on his paycheck, let's pour one out for John Cusack. He has been sliding into a comfortable groove of forgettable movies ("Drive Hard," "The Prince"), and so it goes with "Reclaim," which you probably didn't know existed. Well, it does.

While Nicolas Cage tends to get the brunt of criticism/derision for jobs likely accepted based on how many zeros appear on his paycheck, let's pour one out for John Cusack. He has been sliding into a comfortable groove of forgettable movies ("Drive Hard," "The Prince"), and so it goes with "Reclaim," which you probably didn't know existed. Well, it does.

Co-starring Ryan Phillippe, Rachelle Lefevre, Jacki Weaver and Luis Guzman, the story follows an American couple who travel to Puerto Rico to finalize an adoption and pick up their seven year-old adoptee, only to they realize that (all together now, class!) things aren't what they seem. There's some sort of scam, Phillippe looks desperate, Guzman glowers, and websites can't be found on iPads. Oh no! And oh yeah, Cusack hangs around, wearing a windbreaker and ballcap and looks sleazy. As for the Playlist? We wonder how the cast was convinced to show up for this turkey. Oh, that's right! It had something to do with lots and lots of zeros.

"Reclaim" goes VOD and hits theatres on September 19th. [USA Today]
