Jack and Jill vs. the World Reviews
Wow!! Just learned something here, Hannah Lochner and I both have the same birthday.
Freddie Prince Jr stars as Jack, a New York City advertising exec. who's life is just like the ads he spins. While Taryn Manning as Jill is a free spirit who instantly connects with Jack.
And after the introductions of the characters is where the good part of the movie ends. It's your typical love story with rules added to it, and the number 1 rule is HONESTY. As usual the girl breaks it right off the back.
Now I can understand why Jack gets upset when he finds out the big "suprise" and why Jill lied to him, but only for a minute. Most people should comfort that person but Jack was pretty much an ass. And then you have your typical ending where he goes to apologize in a big way and they drive off into the nyc sunset.
The fact is, most of FPJ movies are fluff but this one was just horrible. And Taryn Manning is a horrible actress and should just stick to singing. Be wary of this film, for it will steal 89 mins of your life where you could be doing something else.
Didn't really know what to expect from this movie, but after watching it I had a different sense about things. I thought it was really good. It had been awhile since I had seen a good romantic movie! I loved how both characters were total opposites. As much as I hate to admit, I liive more like Jack & would love to live more like Jill.
It left me with good feelings & there were so many good moments, I can't explain. I loved the whole idea behind it & the whole manifesto idea. Think that is why the relationship worked!
