Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
Charming, quirky Brit romance has mild gay themes.
| Original Score: 4/5
A generally pleasant distraction.
Imagine Me & You shamelessly embraces every romantic-comedy cliché in the book.
| Original Score: B-
Imagine Me & You is more about fidelity and respect - or rather the lack thereof. It doesn't matter if the characters are gay, straight or bi. Cheating is cheating.
| Original Score: 2/5
It's a fluffy little concoction that'll capably fill 90 minutes, but it's not destined to become anybody's newest favorite.
| Original Score: 3/5
Brit-com business as usual, right down to the outbursts of posh swearing and the fraught, last-minute dash through the London traffic.
The American Perabo (doing a good English accent) and Headey are likable leads -- and Goode brings a touching vulnerability to his role as the luckless Heck.
A witty and immensely enjoyable British romantic comedy.
In short, it's an absolute louse of a film -- 94 minutes of unimaginable, unspeakable awfulness.
| Original Score: 1/5
Enjoyable romantic comedy that succeeds thanks to likeable characters and some good gags, despite falling foul of all the usual rom-com traps.
Snappy writing and spot-on performances from a terrific cast help the movie avoid all the pitfalls of cliché.
Parker's command of moldy clichés is fluent (one character even says, with a straight face, 'Follow your heart').
Parker has a sensitive approach to the crise d'amour, but his lacklustre leading ladies contribute to an uneven tone.
If you're in the mood for a moonstruck trifle with a drizzly London setting, this might not be such a bad choice. All that's required is that you be as open-minded as the movie is open-hearted.
Imagine Me & You has its charms, but for a movie about loving radically, it sure plays it safe.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
...neither great nor awful: On TV, it might seem better, but it's simply underpowered for the big screen.
Maybe it's a sign of progress that a mediocre gay romantic comedy can enter the mainstream marketplace and not create any stir.
| Original Score: C-
...a bit like a poor man's Four Weddings and a Funeral... Although there are a few laughs and the slick script is peppered with juicy one-liners, it's mild and rather mannered as we fail to connect with the characters when it really matters.
Although Imagine Me & You (never much liked that song) tries to tap into a popular theme, we never believe that Rachel and Luce are the slightest bit interested in one another.
The film also has a distinctly sitcom-like quality and is poorly paced, like an overlong episode of Will & Grace.
| Original Score: 2/4
