Nonsense Love Story
3 October 2006 | by (THAILAND, BANGKOK) – See all my reviews

Perfects Strangers is no more than a typical, predictable, and nonsense romantic movie that I have seen million of times. Staring Rob and Anna Friel as an advertisers that get to swap job between New York and London. There they consult each other through the various phone conversation before they fall in love along the way.

The main reason to watch this movie got to be the casts, they are all too good for this movie. The main reason I watch because it got Anna Frail and Rob, this movie doesn't do them justice. The directing is too blame, it was not not good at all and the cinematography make this movie look like as if it has been shot in the '80s. And the story was not very consistence, it s just too sense less and going no where. And some of the character are just too shallow. And the music doesn't go along with the movie at all.

Overall, despite a low expectation – the movie is even lower than that. But it is all that bad, half way into the movie it started to get a little better and it become more watchable. But in the end you won't miss a single thing if you haven't seen it and if you seen it you will forget about it in next hours.

Reason To Watch: Anna Frail Reason Not To: Seem Like A Waste Of Time.

Rating: 3.5/10 (Grade: F).
