Today marks the 5 year anniversary of awesomeness in my life. This list represents every movie my old lady (she…
Here comes the bribe...
When she learns she's in danger of losing her visa status and being deported, overbearing book editor Margaret Tate forces her put-upon assistant, Andrew Paxton, to marry her.
The perfect example of a film that starts off well, and then descends into unimaginable awfulness very, very quickly.
There's a quote from The Big Lebowski that sums this up well: "The goddamn plane has crashed into the mountain!"
Let's just say I was bored......it's late........it came on t.v........I had nothing better to do. Let's leave it there shall we.
Typical easy romantic movie with a happy end.
The only think I like is the scenery when they go to "Alaska" and that "Alaska" part is filmed in Boston lol.
I didnt expect to enjoy this movie as much as I did since I thought it would simply be another romantic comedy, but I was suprised at how much I ended liking this film. Ryan Reynolds already did a great romantic comedy last year with Definitely, Maybe and this time around he did it again. Sandra Bullock is back at doing what she does best: romantic comedies and in my opinion it is one of her best films as she plays a different character than she has in most other roles. This time around she is the boss who nobody can stand and is so uptight, but once she forces Reynolds character into marrying her we start seeing the humanity…
Your standard Rom-com really but it has a fun feel and with a great cast with two leads that share decent chemistry. Some of the comedy may fall totally flat but it does provide enough to make it worth your time.
Saturday was JAGP-day at Casa de ZapperLife...
Simple and typical rom-com. Plays it a bit too safe for its own good, sadly, but a few positives as well. I think Sandra Bullock get more crap than she deserves. She's far from as useless as Julia Roberts or the likes, and there's a few scenes in this that proves she's not too high on her self either. Ryan Reynolds is also a likeable enough leading guy. I don't know how well he scores with the ladies as leading man material, but I for one prefer him to all the Ashton Kutchers, Josh Duhamels and Gerard Butlers--and whatnot--in the world.
They've pretty much reversed the typical rom-com setting, and added the necessary…
Funny. Sweet. Chemistry.
The reason I watched this is for class. Yes, our textbook says to 'research' this movie and note all the inciting moments that lead from scene to scene.Wow, this movie is so great because each of the 22 steps of the hero's journey (tm) is so easy to spot!!
Wait, no it's not.
I fricking love this film
all i can think when i watch this is how the male stripper is oscar from the office
A lot more charming than it should be!!
Loved loved loved! Sandra Bullock has to be one of my favourite women in the world and played a classically wonderful person in this. I loved the scene where she revealed information about herself (tattoo, cried after Bob called her a poisonous bitch) - I think it worked really well and I love a good romance-comedy!
Some really funny scenes and a great chemistry between Bullock and Reynolds differentiate this movie from others of its genre.
Tight-arsed book publisher Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) coerces her long-suffering assistant (Ryan Reynolds) into marrying her, in order to to avoid being deported - back to her native Canada. But on a long weekend trip to a Reynold's remote, idyllic home town in Alaska - for his grandmother's 90th birthday party - the chalk-and-cheese couple discover that they have more in common than pragmatic interests and professional codependency.
The star quality of, and comedic chemistry between, Sandy and Ryan Reynolds just about saves this romantic comedy from Anne Fletcher, director of 27 Dresses. But there are some terrible comedic misfires along the way, mostly featuring the supporting actors: Ramone's male stripper routine at the local bar is embarrassing (but not…
A promising first act gives way to a complete disaster. There was a script, right?
