Critic Reviews for Love and Other Disasters
Viewers who don't loathe it immediately may find it the guilty pleasure of the season.
As wildly uneven and unfocused as Murphy's accent, and twice as annoying.
It calls out the clichés of its genre only to end up willingly indulging in them more often than not.
Audience Reviews for Love and Other Disasters
Couldn't get this film a positive spin. It was very boring for me to watch...
I liked this movie more than I ever would have expected, due in part because I really did not know what to expect. Essentially, it is a typical rom-com, but it tries so hard to be something more; and by-and-large it succeeds. I loved the echos of Breakfast and Tiffany's, and there were an awful lot of them. Jacks has more than a few things in common with Holly Golightly and "Tiffany's" is her favorite film to bout. There are a lot of people out there bashing Murphey's performance, and while she wasn't mindblowing, I was rather impressed. Besides, who really cares if she can walk in her stilettos? Plus, it seems a wee bit disrespectful to bash her now that she is dead. I liked Matthew Rhys in The Edge of Love, and he is even when actually playing a likable character. The dialog is snappy and clever, not really realistic, but damn funny! All around, Love and Other Disasters is lighthearted and fun, even the mandatory "serious" moments sparkle with levity. Is it shallow? Yes. It is obvious? Yes. Predictable? Yes. Is is enjoyable? Absolutely!
think you've got to be in the right mindset for this one but if you're prepared to suspend your disbelief you can have a great time. If you like Ugly Betty then this is for you. But if you go in expecting War & Peace you're going to be disappointed. The clothes are great and there are some great performances from the likes of Dawn French and Catherine Tate. There are plenty of laughs and some brilliantly observed portraits of London types. Brittany Murphy is a luminous presence and although you get the message that she wants to channel Audrey Hepburn she sort of pulls it off. It's a step up from Love, Actually and Notting Hill and a lot more fun. Could the prominence of a gay story line be what seems to annoy some of the other reviewers here?
