Sahara

[Amazon Link] [2.5 stars] [IMDb Link]

I rented this movie because I thought it would be dumb fun, but it turned out to be more dumb than fun. (Although that might just be me; Mrs. Salad really liked it.)

Just a lot of mindless action, one-dimensional characters I didn't care too much about, mostly flat jokes, an absurd plot. Even the sainted William H. Macy gives a lackluster performance. (But Delroy Lindo was good, in his 1.8 minutes of screen time!)

An actor named Rainn Wilson has a role in this, and I kept trying to figure out where I'd seen him before. IMDB coughed up the answer: he plays Dwight in The Office (American version) on TV. OK, I guess that's good acting.
