Critic Reviews for I Love You Too
It's a hodgepodge of tropes, but the charm, innocence and genuine sentiment of Helliar's words are irrefutable ... I can imagine Helliar one day delivering a genuinely great screenplay -- one that perhaps is just a bit tighter, funnier and braver.
For the most part I Love You Too is an Australian romantic comedy that's both romantic and funny. Which is a lot more than you might have expected.
Despite the good naturedness that goes with it, the result is pretty tired.
Audience Reviews for I Love You Too
Comedian Peter Helliar's story of this Aussie romantic-comedy film makes quite refreshing and great funny.
The cast is uniformly good. Brendan Cowell and Helliar seem to be playing brash versions of themselves, but import Peter Dinklage is fabulous as grieving Charlie. Megan Gale is also fine in the role of Italian supermodel Francesca Moretti. This may not be too much of a stretch for the model-turned-thespian, but her scenes with Dinklage inject heart which is lacking from much of the rest of the film. The statuesque model meeting with her diminutive admirer is genuinely touching, and their final moments together are beautifully judged.
Even though he doesn't seem to realise it, adding to the rich tapestry of Jim's life are those close to him, such as his boss (Steve Bisley) and put-upon sister and landlord, Marie (Bridie Carter).
The film has a few genuine laugh-out-loud moments and, despite a few misgivings you may have for Jim and company, you can't help but cheer for everyone involved by the end credits. While steeped in rom-com cliché, the finale is as poignant as they come.
Turned this off the other day, decided after all to give it one more go before it goes back to Blockbuster.
My initial impression stands, it is not the best. I like Brendan Cowell, but I don't think he can really pull off romantic male lead, maybe has a little more substance to him. The guy who played his best friend was just painful - the character, anyhow. This blokey Australian thing just really doesn't do it for me. Maybe because I live here.
Story is pretty slight. I have rated it a little higher than it deserves as Australia doesn't produce a lot of rom coms, so extra star for trying, and the cast do their best with not a lot.
I do not know what is the mix up with the OngBak2 movie, but I'll write my review for the Australian I Love You Too, a romantic comedy which has a lot of laughter which is from the clishe sub-category! If this wasn't Australian movie I do not think that I would give more then 40%... but, it is and I appreciate the hard work and obstacles the Australian cinematography has to go through... If you do not expect too much - enjoy the movie! :-)
