So I kinda love this movie. Even though Taylor Lautner still can't act. THINGS I LOVED: -The wedding. Everything was perfect, except for Kristen Stewart of course. She couldn't have at least SMILED? She looked constipated during her whole trip down the aisle. -The honeymoon. I thought it was adorable. Yeah, it was stretched beyond belief and was twenty minutes longer than it should've been, but fuck off. I've been waiting a while for those scenes and they definitely lived up to the hype. -Bella trying to seduce Edward and his reactions. Priceless. -The end where the venom's spreading to Bella's body and she has flashbacks from all the Twilight movies. That was beautiful. -The soundtrack. I love how the filmmakers brought back some songs from the first movie. It just made the whole thing complete. -The last scene. I think it was ended at the perfect spot. -The wedding toasts. Those were hilarious. -How sick Bella looked when she was pregnant. Those makeup artists really did an amazing job. -When Jacob imprints on Renesmee. Yeah, okay, it's creepy. But bitch to Stephanie Meyer about it, not the filmmakers.
THINGS I HATED: -When the wolves were speaking or mind reading or whatever the hell they were doing with each other. Then Jacob talks in his flat, robotic voice and tries to stand up to Sam. The whole thing was stupid. -Leah's acting. Or lack of acting. -That scene during the credits. Waste of time, they should've just ended it with Bella opening her eyes. -How Bella FINALLY came to life when Jacob showed up at her wedding. Um, HELLO? You're married to EDWARD, not him. I think that was the only time I saw her smile that big throughout the whole ceremony. -How big Esme's forehead is. It's so huge it's distracting.
So, as you can see, it wasn't perfect. But the nice parts make up for the terrible ones.
"Why didn't you tell me you're some kind of Alaskan Kennedy?"
"We were in the middle of talking about you...for the last 3 years."
So freakin adorable. It's like I fell in love with Ryan Reynolds all over again. And Sandra was great, as always. I really liked them together.
Oscar aka Ramon made the movie for me. Oh, and that part where Sandra was chanting about balls with Betty White.
Anne Fletcher sure knows how to turn a cliche and predictable script into something pretty hilarious and amazing on screen. My inspiration right there folks.
The only reason I'm not giving this five stars is because it kinda sizzled at the wedding scene. If you've seen the movie, you know what I'm taking about, and I'm not here to spoil anything for the rest of ya. Anyways I know it had to be done at some point, but I just don't like when things get too serious in a light and fun rom-com. It's kinda a buzz kill.
"You could've been killed!"
"I am just deeply touched that, that would of bothered you."
Ugh, God. Sarah Jessica Parker needs to go somewhere. And oh, Hugh Grant. I usually adore you, but your painful facial expressions in this flick made me cringe many, many times.
I don't know what it was. Maybe the fact that 95% of the movie took place out in the country, which I found boring. Strange, I know. I just couldn't get use to or fall in love with the atmosphere.
Plus, this wasn't even funny. At all. The jokes fell flat and I barely laughed. It was sad, really. HUGH GRANT YOU ARE NOT A FREAKIN COMEDIAN. But what'd you expect? All rom-coms now adays usually have this effect.
Not to mention that Sarah and Hugh have negative gallion chemistry.
As for the supporting cast, they all sucked. Mary Steenburgen can NOT pull off that country accent. Who casted these people, honestly?!
It was just...God I hated this.
I was scared. Very scared. And I didn't know what the hell was going on a lot of the time because the fine line between reality and fiction was blurred. But that's what made this whole thing brillant.
I don't care for Natalie Portman, but I thought she did an amazing job. She was great at capturing an innocent, reserved girl who needed to break outta that suffocating shell of hers And I was so proud of Mila Kunis, I mean she's really grown from That '70s Show. Thomas the dance teacher was a creppy asshole; I wanted him to die.
Some parts were pretty much like a porno, though, which kinda shocked me cause I wasn't expecting THAT much sexual stuff. But eh, anything to attract the guys to a movie about ballerinas, right?
There were a lot of scenes that made my arm hair stand on ends, like the whole "finger part". I won't give too much away, but you'll know it when you see it.
So, yeah, I enjoyed the movie. It was entertaining, chilling, and it stayed with you even after you left the theater.
"I wrote something out that I want to say to you, I went nuts when you left...I broke a lamp."
"Okay, read me the thing."
"That was the thing."
They spent over a 100 MILLION DOLLARS on this?! Are you joking?!? I'm not gonna lie, I LOVE Paul Rudd, but this was pretty terrible. I couldn't buy Witherspoon as some big-time softball athlete, & not only was her character a bitch in the movie, but she was a stupid bitch. I didn't understand why she kept crawling back to Owen Wilson, maybe it was for the "amazing sex". The scenes between Rudd & Nicholson were even more boring-er than every other boring scene in the movie. It didn't keep my attention at all. I went in to see a romantic comedy but what I got was a kinda romantic comdey-less piece of garbage. Don't waste your money.
