Critic Reviews for April's Shower
The film has a pleasant spirit and lively dialogue, and what's more, seems to be coming from a specific cultural and geographical location.
It wrings almost no laughs or tears from this seemingly idiot-proof premise, taking 45 yawn-filled minutes to introduce its collection of severely stereotyped characters, whose conflicts then play out in excruciatingly predictable fashion.
If there is a single phrase that should strike fear in the hearts of innocent moviegoers, it is 'writer-director- producer-star.'
A lighthearted comedy about the outing of a bride-to-be and her five-year relationship with her maid of honor.
Suffers from a malady common to tiny indies of the let's-put-on-a-show variety -- it strains for irrepressibly nutty, but lands squarely in annoying.
How do you stop it, a movie that labors as stridently for sitcom feel-goodness?
Audience Reviews for April's Shower
I was very open to enjoy this movie and did at the beginning. It was pleasant and entertaining if you could ignore the 'dop-tee-do' music. It had an interesting premise and I went with it for awhile until it got sillier and sillier and went on and on. Toward the end, what the characters were doing and how they were reacting was so improbable. [img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Way too talky for it's own good and very claustrophobic. The acting is okay, but not very natural . The script is trite and not very believably done. Fair.
OK, hear me out. Mediocre acting and shoddy filmmaking didn't ruin this for me. I saw it shortly after Intentions, which made it look Oscarworthy lol. I thought the story and the dialogue were great, but I would have chosen more capable and more attractive leads.... sorry if that sounds shallow, but come on.... then, enter HONEY LABRADOR!!!! ahhhhh *swoons*.... and how great is it that she looks like that AND can act!? Loved it:) Anyway, despite its shortcomings, I do think this is a worthy flick. The supporting cast of characters is absolutely hilarious... they feel like your own crazy friends and family:)
