Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
I have hardly ever seen a movie this predictable and ridiculous
The first thing you learn about this movie's protagonist, Christian, is that he is afraid of heights. Consequently, as this is supposed to be a romantic comedy, when he sees his future wife for the first time, he leans of his window too far to get a better view. Guess if he'll drop right before her feet and she'll think it's so cute.
The problem is, Christian is a kind of dreamer, dealing with antiques and old documents, while his wife inherits her fathers software company on their wedding day and has to do all the things a 16-hour-work-day-power-woman is supposed to do: answering the phone in every imaginable situation, cancelling dates because of business appointments, and fiddling with her computer while he tries to talk to her seriously.
You know the scene in some movies where people are watching something lame on TV and predict the lines the characters will say, and the characters on screen actually say it? That's what I did. Please, dear screenwriter, don't let them say this ridiculous phrase now, and bang!, it happens. You'll find yourself laughing, not because the movie is funny, but because you see what it wants to convey and how miserably it fails.
