P.S. I loved this movie! What is it about Hillary Swank that makes her acting such a guilty pleasure?
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to take all of the corniest elements from a beloved fairytale and weave them into a live action modern day teen-drama? Neither have I, but evidently writer Chad Gomez Creasey thought this would be a brilliant idea and subsequently penned Sydney White starring Amanda Bynes.
Have you ever considered how far you would go for the sake of love? Would you die for your lover or even worse, jeopardise your friendships? Would you undermine all your values? Betray yourself, all for love?
27 Dresses made me regret living 27 years and beyond. Watching this movie is the male version of giving birth. Perhaps, and it may be the tequila talking, this is the spawn of Katherine Heigl and Seth Rogen from Knocked Up?
I asked my wife if she wanted to go see this movie as if I were doing her a favor. She saw right through that but nonetheless, was looking forward to seeing it for the same reason I was, Katherine Heigl. We are both big fans of her smash hit, Knocked Up and were eagerly hoping for another great performance. Where the movie did have its flaws, Heigl was able to shine through them. I think it’s time to consider her one of the new leading ladies of Hollywood, if you don’t already.
Alec Baldwin, a great actor in his younger days, plays the role of a famous editor with a proclivity for drinking and bedding younger women. Sarah Michelle Gellar plays the role of an assistant editor, both brilliant literarily, and immature in every other way (her trademark in films). Together they offer a sort of chemistry that works and is convincing, but is also quite unwelcome.
When Harry Met Sally is the epitome of what a chick flick was, should be and might some day become again. This dynamite script made the careers of two brilliant actors both diminished recently by prosaic roles. Billy Crystal in this role is so ordinary, humorous and downright honest that it is touching. Meg Ryan plays such a typical woman, only more so if I can steal from Casablanca. Happy Valentine’s Day Everyone (or "Scchweetheart" to Humphrey Bogart)!
Have you ever written a movie review before actually finishing the film? Neither have I ;) I Could Be Your Woman is the perfect picture to almost finish. The movie has it all if you are an older woman dating a younger man, or conversely a younger man dating an older woman. Which is better? It may be hard to choose. Perhaps I should watch the "reality" TV show "Cougar" for more information…
Fresh off an Oscar win for his role in No Country For Old Men, Javier Bardem has one more reason to celebrate. This week brings to us the DVD release of Love In The Time Of Cholera based on the novel by Gabriela Garcia Marquez. It seems that the talented Mr. Bardem can do no wrong as of late.
Christina Ricci does not fit the mould of a typical Hollywood actress. It is no surprise to see her playing another "cooky" character in Mark Palansky’s Penelope. The genre of the film is an adult "fairy tale" but for me it often leans towards a Disneyesque film rather than a spikier Tim Burton, or surreal lavish Terry Gilliam film. The movie revolves on a simple joke, following a long-standing family curse, Penelope (Ricci) is born with a malediction of a pronounced pigs "snout" and pig features. Of course her neurotic parents (Catherine O'Hara and Richard E Grant) are overly protective…
What Happens in Vegas is the surprise movie of the year to date. Let me admit that I love Ashton Kutcher’s films, every one of them, but I loathe the man himself. I feel as though we have all been "punked" one too many times. Admittedly, I hate Cameron Diaz’s recent work, with the exception of The Holiday in which Kate Winslet is the star who hits it out of the park. Pre-existing biases aside, this movie rivals Forgetting Sarah Marshall for funniest and most clever movie of the year award.
