This is what I call 'simply the best'
22 March 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The Sentimental Bloke, to myself, is difficult to understand in terms of the inter titles. However, I can easily follow the movie and know what it want to communicate with audiences. In this movie, I can feel great sense of love. By this I mean I can see between somethings I would like to call 'Good' and 'Evil' sides of the Bloke fighting during the movie. The Bloke uses 'love,' as I already mentioned, as a weapon of the 'Good' to fight his 'Evil.' For example, when he met Doreen he decided to be a good husband and it appears again when he had a baby. As I can feel from this movie, the power of love no matter who you love, it is a great weapon to fight everything and to overcome any problems you may face.
