Romantic Comedy

Long Shot

Long Shot

Long live the romantic comedy. No, seriously. I'm a sucker for them. They make for the perfect background entertainment. Or, in this case, the perfect in-the-air...
Juliet, Naked

Juliet, Naked

I read the novel on which this movie is based. I didn't really like it. So, to summarize, I decided to waste 90 minutes of my life watching a film based on a book...
Drinking Buddies

Drinking Buddies

Is there such a thing as disposable cinema? I mean I know there's plenty of straight-to-video, tax write-off crap that pollutes Netflix like a really lame plague, but...
Crazy Stupid Love

Crazy Stupid Love

I'm not sure why it is every movie I see these days has Ryan Gosling in it. First there was Drive. Then The Ides of March. And now this thing -- which I saw on a plane...
Leap Year

Leap Year

Ah the rom com. The district where handsome, successful guys suck and dudes who are poor as dirt, but have good hearts are the best! In other words, bullshit. When's the...
Four Christmases

Four Christmases

Nothing about this movie spoke to it being good. Ok, you have Vince Vaughn, who I tend to find pretty funny--and is sometimes hilarious--and Reese Witherspoon, who long...
Bride Wars

Bride Wars

I want to first say that this movie is a complete waste of time. It's an airplane movie. A movie to wash dishes by. It's a warm bath and razor blade movie. The narrative...
Knocked Up

Knocked Up

I gotta say that I'm not a big fan of "gross out" comedy. It's not to say that it needs to be gross to be gross out, but I'm talking about these kind of broad comedies...
Coming to America

Coming to America

No matter which way you slice it, this thing is a classic. The plot is weak and formulaic. The direction is lame and amateurish. The acting is one step above community...
Jet Lag

Jet Lag

Merde is French for "shit," right? Well, this movie bites in any language. As if watching a dubbed movie wasn't bad enough; I was forced to view this drek on a transcontinental...
In Good Company

In Good Company

There's a weird sheen over this whole movie. Perhaps it's the strange similarity (in title only) to In the Company of Men. In fact, when I put this film in my queue, I...
First Daughter

First Daughter

So Katie Holmes might have been on my imaginary "if I were to stray for a Hollywood starlette" list. That was before she fell for Mr. You Don't Know the History of Psychiatry...
Along Came Polly

Along Came Polly

This movie was a waste of time for everyone involved. It was like an ode to mediocrity and conventionalism. If there was a screenwriting program (which I believe there...
Punch Drunk Love

Punch Drunk Love

Where to start? Well, I guess the beginning is the best place. First, we have an Adam Sandler movie that's as far away from your typical Adam Sandler movie as any movie...
Jersey Girl

Jersey Girl

Who, exactly, did they think was the target audience for this piece of crap? Of course I wasted my time watching it, but I'm a sucker for bad movies--plus I thought Jami...
View From the Top

View From the Top

How does this crap get made? Better yet, why do people agree to star in them? Paltrow won a damn Oscar. Ruffalo has a burgeoning career. Myers is... well, Myers is another...
About a Boy

About a Boy

I always find book adaptations fascinating. There are some books out there that feel as if the authors actually wrote with actors in mind, counting the option money for...

2001 ∙ Romantic Comedy ∙ 2h 2min I always hate to praise the French (sorry, the Freedom), but in this case, there's really no way to avoid it. American movi...
