My Review (courtesy of me!)
Okay, so sometimes I can be a hard sell on movies… I don’t know why… but there it is. J
That being said (and it makes it sound like I am about to rip apart this movie, doesn’t it?) I really loved this movie. J (Gotcha!!)
This is one of my favorites that I have seen in a while. Why you ask?? Because it was funny, it had action, some romance and it wasn’t slow. When I first heard about this movie I knew I wanted to see it because I really love Reese Witherspoon (have you seen Legally Blond? Because I love that movie…) most all of her movies are good. Plus I like romantic comedies Why you ask again?? Boy you are full of questions today…
I like romantic comedies because they are usually light and fun, they have a cute guy, a cute girl and funny lines. They are good movies to unwind with at the end of the day.
Oh, and I also like them cause I be a girl. LOL.
Anywhoo, when I popped this movie into the DVD player (I rented it from Redbox) I had an attack of OH CRAP! … like this has never happened to you…
Because this movie is basically a love triangle… and we all know I not likey no love triangles. I cannot stand to watch the guy I like (I always seem to pick the one who doesn’t get the girl…) fall in love then get hurt. It drives me insane. So… as the credits came up I was wondering how I would like this movie at all…
But, it was really good. Obviously there is a love triangle but it wasn’t like the ones (mostly in books) that I don’t like. This one was really funny and it was kind of nice to see a girl discuss the guys pros and cons with her BFF who was a bored wife and mother who wanted to live vicariously through her single friend. LOL.
p.s. Don’t touch mommy’s special milk LOL.
I know you all want to know who she picks… I’m not gonna tell ya. But of course I had a favorite guy… I’ll can’t tell you if he was the one chosen… but I will give you a hint as to who my favorite was… he takes her on a date and lets her drive a classic car like a mad woman.
But I CAN say that it works out well and has a good ending.
The acting was really good. Both guys are hot. Reese is so gorgeous and fun as always and I just had a good time while watching.
The storyline is good too, it’s simple but it works. Sometimes the guys do things that I was like “That is so wrong!” but it was still funny. Was it totally believable in some places? No. And can I just ask… why is it that every bad guy in the movies has a Russian name? WHY?
Someday I am going to write a book (or movie) with a bad guy named Harry Bob. Yup. And the people will run around saying “Watch out! Harry Bob is coming!” and “Beware of Hairy Bob!”
But that’s beside the point.
The point is this is a really good movie. I would recommend it is you like hot guys, hot girls, cool cars, airplanes, explosions, car chased, fist fights and romance. It’s also kind of fun to guess who she will pick.
So there you have it. My opinion.
Have you seen this movie? What did you think?
Here is the trailer for your viewing pleasure!
