Oh. Mygod. This is so totally like this trip that my best friend Tiffany and I are planning? For when we so totally turn 18?
The total familiarity of the plot wore on my nerves, especially since the movie could have been better than it is.
| Original Score: 2/4
Moore's personality void keeps sucking air out of the picture.
| Original Score: 2/5
It's one TV-movie romp that Kristy McNichol never got around to starring in.
Sparks of interest are few and far between and the only thing worth looking at is the pretty European scenery.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
A determinedly innocuous, moderately irritating, totally predictable and largely charmless bit of teen-pandering fluff.
| Original Score: C-
What could have been a fun movie falls victim to Mandy Moore's unfortunate miscasting.
Its target audience will probably find it pleasurable. It will certainly tide them over until the next film is released starring Mandy Moore and/or Hilary Duff, whichever.
| Original Score: C+
A montage of Mandy Moore moments, it has the flavor of a big slice of white bread.
Chasing Liberty will probably win over as many fuddy-duddy fathers as fillies with its mixture of sweetness tempered with genial cynicism.
An endless, virtually laugh-free pastiche of Aaron Sorkin by way of Aaron Spelling.
Moore slips comfortably into her sweet-goofy role and Goode does his best to be brooding and attractive, but their combined efforts fail to strike romantic sparks.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
Chasing Liberty is strictly vanilla-flavoured, status quo entertainment.
A fluffy romance vehicle that does manage a few charms.
It's all quite engaging.
| Original Score: 3/4
A girthless, mirthless, Clearasil-embossed retread of the Audrey Hepburn/ Gregory Peck classic Roman Holiday.
This is 2004's first airball of goo.
Movies don't get more disposable than this one.
It defines blah.
| Original Score: 1/4
