Movies about blind dates work sometimes, it all really depends on the characters and the circumstances of how they meet. Despite the desperation of Heather Locklear’s character, Hilary Duff really goes above and beyond to help her mom find true love. I enjoyed the chaos that ensued when things that were going smoothly began to fall apart. The ending was cute and really played well with Chris Noth’s charm.
Once upon a time ago whatever Hilary Duff touched or performed in was a hit for Disney. When they decided to give Lizzie McGuire a full length movie, they really didn’t put much thought into a real story. What we got was ultimately recycled from other movies, with the ultimate cliche of our “main character looks for love while not realising the best guy for her is already in love with her.”
There are only so many ways to tell the story of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, this was not one of them. I applaud the efforts of writers to plug the story into the rigid college social class structures, but the supporting cast doesn’t do enough to sell the story. As I try to remember back to this film, there is nothing that sticks out as a good memory.
I’m not entirely sure who signed onto this project and for how much money, but they had to be desperate. There was nothing new presented in Criminal we haven’t seen before, especially when someone tries to plant someone’s mind into a new body. The story and bad acting by some big names couldn’t do anything to save this movie that should have gone straight to Netflix.
Sometimes you take one for the team and watch a movie you know is really bad. That happened to me when I watched The House Bunny with my girlfriend. What made this even more painful to sit through was the fact I don’t like Anna Farris and don’t find her to be funny at all. The story here is really dumb which suits our main character extremely well. Emma Stone deserved better in her third film.
I steered clear of Shopaholic because I thought this would have been the ultimate girl movie about shoes and cosmetics. Instead I learnt, in a very humorous way, that credit card debt and excessive shopping can actually drain the life out of you when it comes time to pay up. Guys will dread this movie while the girls have already seen it or want to. In the end it wasn’t bad as I thought it was gonna be.
I am not one to knock Christian films or values, but 90 Minutes in Heaven was just a terrible, terrible movie. There’s not a whole lot of religion in this film and our main character lies in bed cursing the heavens for 90% of the movie. The story is suppose to be miraculous, not bore you to death. I’d advise everyone to stay clear of this film, despite it’s good intentions.
I found Fireproof on Netflix and after watching it I made the girlfriend watch it with me again. This movie is simply amazing. Some could say it’s cheesy and corny but if you look at the real heart and soul of the film, it is extremely powerful and motivating. Based on The Love Dare experiment, I dare all of you to give this movie a shot, you won’t be disappointed.
Crazy and hilarious are just two words I’d use to describe She’s the Man. This is one of Amanda Bynes’ best roles, where she needs to play two characters at the same time. It was entertaining to see her stumble her way through school and the soccer field, all the while trying to win over a guy and the soccer coach.
I will be the first admit, what I thought was gonna be totally laughable, was actually amazing. It is no surprise that Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan got married, their chemistry on-screen was so passionate and intense (in a good way). I don’t dance but the moves they make me wish I could do what they do. The dedication they show to their craft is inspiring.
