Dragged too much.No content whatsoever
31 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

To begin with I am a huge fan of Anne Hathaway and her choice of movies lately. But this movie just doesn't seem to fit that description. It took like years for the actual movie to start.Few characters were absolutely useless in the movie.Lots of loose ends.The end was too obvious.Even among the other love flicks, this did not score well at all.Some depth/ content started to come in the movie when they started to talk about Parkinson's disease but that did not happen for more than 5-10 min.Though Anne Hathaway is looking good as always and has acted brilliantly, yet the shallowness of the story and the same routine 'casual fling becomes true love' angle really puts this movie down.
