I enjoy The Wedding Singer myself, but that was when Adam Sandler was actually funny. Blended is not as bad as Jack & Jill, or Grown Ups 1 or 2 and Just Go With It, but Blended is still a pretty terrible movie.
I am interested in sharing movie reviews with people with similar, or even not similar taste in movies. I watch at least a few movies every week and try to leave at least a short comment on all. (I would love to watch more, but that thing called work will keep getting in the way. LOL). I visit Flixster daily and possibly need a life! I am not stuck up about my movies, and I like most genres. While I do have a preference towards lower budget films, I can also enjoy a good chick flick.
Most of the movies I see are pretty average and I rate them around 3 stars. Anything lower than a 3 and you know I thought it was pretty bad, (if it got half a star, no comment!). Anything 3 and a half to 4 is pretty good. 5 stars, amazing.
I do not send out a lot of recommendations,(though sending more out these days than I have previously). I tend to figure most people here have seen older films or big budget ones. I will send out recommendations for smaller films that I think may have flown under people's radar. But I enjoy reading the recommendations of others, so keep them coming!
I do not add people with no reviews and I'm really not interested in those who want to just send the same old pick up lines out to ten other people. This is not a dating site, people! If you want to be real and chat about movies, then feel free to add me. Also, I have unadded people for sending me too many widgets - particularly of the soft porn variety. If I wanted to look at that, and be associated with it, I would be on a very different website!
I am pretty friendly and open minded, but as previously stated, I am here for the movies, so don't bother contacting me if you have other reasons for joining this site. Hate to sound horrible, but there have been a few lately....
Yes, it's ridiculous, but the teen girl in me just loves the story of the girl "stranded" with her rock star crush (even if he is a bit of an idiot) and the resort scenery is beautiful. Amanda had a wide eyed, innocent appeal here, her teen movies are one of my guilty pleasures. Just a sweet fun movie that you don't necessarily need to be 15 to enjoy!
Can't believe I actually sat through this. It was on my "no way" list, but I do like some of the cast, so decided to watch it on TV. Definitely wouldn't have paid money to see it. Having said that, not as bad as I expected, (but believe me, my expectations were very low, so that's not actually saying a lot). As the title suggests, it's all about pregnancy, so if you're not obsessed with that and babies, probably not the movie for you either. The cast are good, and that's probably what saves this. I found the young one night stand storyline totally unbelievable, the others not so bad, but obviously the topic bores me to death and I can't relate to these women. I can imagine mums would probably love this and have a good laugh. I don't think anyone else would! Overall if you like the cast, it's *maybe* okay for a free watch on TV if you've nothing else to watch.
This is my second time watching this. I really want to like it more than I do. The lighting and scenes are pretty, it really is beautifully shot. What lets it down is the script and the story. It is just not enough. And Jude Law is absolutely horrible in this. People blame Norah Jones as being the weak link who can't carry the film, but really she's fine. Understated, but I think the character is meant to be. Jude, on the other hand, is hammy and can't look at him without thinking he's sleazy and wouldn't actually want to see him get together with Norah's character (this of course could be due to his well known personal issues), but he does actually look grotty here. The supporting characters have more to work with and actually did care about their stories. It's a shame as the potential and cast (Jude aside) actually was there in this one, but it just doesn't quite work as a whole.
