Learning To Drive
15 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

as movies go, it's painfully obvious this is a chick flick.

if it were a dessert, it'd be a meringue: sweet, cute, fluffy, but unsatisfying.

the ending felt truncated - the movie kept building up until i felt like wendy: "are you ever going to come!?" and then suddenly "bloop!" that was it. done. over.

i'm not understanding one glaringly obvious plot hole: darwan wants his wife to learn about america, improve her english, and learn to read. his bestie is a very classy manhattanite book reviewer.

er... duh? introduce the two of them?

no - instead, Jasleen ends up surrounded by a clique of indian women who, going by the first one she met, hates america.

directors dropped the ball on that one.

sir kingsley and ... whoever that is playing wendy did their best (and their best was superb) but they can only do so much with this lace doily.

this movie is FUN!!!!! i took my 10 yr old niece and 18 yr old daughter and we all had a terrifically good time. the story is straightforward and uncomplicated, without the dreary attempt at social commentary and literary aspirations a la Fantastic Four and Superman Returns (now, *there* was a dreary movie!). the visuals are *terrific* and the characters great good fun. it's very easy to see that everyone involved in the making of this film had a fabulous time doing so and Nicholas Cage just plays it straight without getting all social conscience and sign-of-our-times about everything (perhaps making up for "Wicker Man"?).

in a nutshell: the good guys are good, the bad guys are EVIL, the innocents are purely innocent, and this is a great family party, scary bits and all.
