The performances save “Ford V. Ferrari” and make it good, maybe even great. Like a perfectly tuned engine, every piece of the ensemble clicks together handsomely.

A monkey could write this script. I’m not entirely convinced that one didn’t.
You – smart discerning reader that you are- already know that it’s bad. Its two biggest stars are Nicolas Cage and Kelsey Grammar, for god’s sake. It has a 0% Rotten Tomatoes score. So telling you that it is bad does not quite cut it.
Eight films in, the “Spider-Man” franchise shouldn’t be nearly as fresh or as funny as it is in “Far from Home.”
