Only You Reviews
Faith is borderline psychotic, but Marisa Tomei plays her so nicely you can almost buy her over the top behaviour. I'm not sure the movie entirely works honestly, but it has a decent cast and the Italian scenery is beautiful. Nice chick flick. However, I can tell middle age is creeping in on me, because the scene at the end, all I could think was "what a jerk, with his feet up on the back of someone's seat!" Obnoxious is not hot. But Marisa was really the one who makes this movie work.
Soulmates means finding someone's whose crazy matches your crazy.
And Tony Stark's and Aunt May's crazy were meant to be together.
the soundtrack was horrible. the scene is intense, passionate. and what sounds they are playing? James bond!!! i mean you gotta pick the right sound at least. it just doesn't match.
i found quite a few plot holes too.
Faith, the main character, is an obnoxious bubbly main heroin who's looking for a man whose name she spelled out on an Ouija board and when she meets Peter Wright (played by Robert Downey Jr.) she is madly in love, but when she finds out he's not named Damon Bradly she's like: "Oh, you are not my soulmate!" . Throughout the movie, I don't even WANT to feel bad for Faith. In fact, everything I want to do is to kick her in the ass.
So overall, a pretty lazily written love story filled with so many romance cliches. It's enough for me to tell that it's not all that worth it. Save for Robert Downey Jr.
The film's narrative is ridiculous. It just is. There's no way of getting around it. Every plot point just gets more and more stupid. Yet Marisa Tomei was entertaining, and Robert Downey Jr. was himself, which made it that little bit more watchable.
The film is complete and utter tosh. Is far too long. And doesn't achieve much in it's long run time.
Yet I was charmed by it. Even though it really is quite rubbish.
