Horrible Script
24 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this movie, really I did. It was showcased at a Latin film festival. I heard nothing but wonderful things about Angie Cepeda who plays the lead actress. In the movie premiere, Angie was seated behind me and the director was seated next to me. I had high hopes for this romantic comedy and then something happened!...they rolled the film.

This was one disappointing film. The plot was unbelievable. All of her possessions are stolen while she is sleeping. I don't know about you but even if I were a heavy sleeper, I'm going to hear noises from a robber stealing of all my worldly possessions right in front of my nose.

I will say that Angie Cepeda does have a great deal of potential. It is not her fault that the script stinks. I mean it really stinks. The jokes are so amateurish. Specifically, the jokes are forced and sometimes the script leans to vulgarity just for shock value. Angie is surrounded by characters with no depth. Some of them are just plain obnoxious. You wonder why a girl of Angie's class would even be associated with these morons. That's the point. In real life, Angie probably doesn't hang out with these kinds of characters.

There is a scene in the movie where a big group of people are having dinner. This has to be the worst scene in the movie. Kind of like scratching your nails on a chalkboard. They burst out singing the song "Don't You Want Me Baby" by Human League. Oh my, oh my, it is bad with a capital "B." Congratulations on messing with a classic 80s hit.

Angie's love interest is supposed to be a doctor. Where did they find this guy from Chippendales? He acts like a little school boy when he first meets Angie. He then has the nerve to call her on his cell phone the very same day and ask her if she has a crush on him. Again, we are reminded of the bad script.

I will say in defense of the movie that there were people in the audience who were laughing at these obnoxious jokes. If you like some of the situation comedy junk on television, you might find some of this film amusing. If you have good taste in movies, you probably won't find it charming.

The problem with a bad script is that after a while you don't care about the characters because they never have anything intelligent to say. That is the whole point of a romantic comedy - intelligent banter. I can only recommend this movie to my enemies.
