I was disappointed by this film. I felt like the script was weak, and the acting was also weak. I was underwhelmed by the actor playing Hans Solo. I thought the dialogue was flat. I also thought that the outcomes were predictable. Of course, Kiri betrays Hans. That was eminently foreseeable. I was not surprised by any of the character choices, and I was only surprised by the clunky dialogue and mechanical acting.
This is one of my favorite movies, and I just rewatched the entire movie a couple weeks ago. I find the acting great, and the message to be admirable. I like how family is being redefined as more than a nuclear biological unit, but it is being defined in this movie as a larger group of friends and colleagues who play meaningful roles in the lives of each other. I like how the relationship between Hugh Grant and the boy develops slowly and isn't instantly perfect. I liked how Grant's character slowly matures over time and even the first scenes where he is unabashedly single and childfree are funny and warm. I like the lack of judgmentalism towards unconventional lifestyles in this movie and its inclusiveness. The last scene where Grant and the boy sing at the talent show is priceless. I think Grant did a great job acting in this role. So did Collette and the boy. Weisz was also good.
This movie is good but not great. Still, I actually laughed out loud many times during this movie because it is so edgy and meta. When I watched other chick flicks like Bridesmaids or Bridget Jones's Baby, I didn't laugh once and maybe even cringed. I like the mix of actresses in this movie since some are up-and-comers like Ilana, Zoe, and the one who played Alice. Johannssen and McKinnon are more established and also very good actresses. The first half of the movie was funnier then the second half, which just got silly with all of the unbelievable mix-ups and plot twists. How did the first thief find their house in the first place? It was never properly explained and doesn't make sense. Seeing goofy, sweet Phil Dunphy play a rich, lecherous open marriage sex fiend with Demi Moore was also fun.
