I loved Renee Zellweger in this movie!
21 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An overall great movie, this movie really captured the 1950s era. It had the clothes, the atmosphere, the music. It brought me back in the 1950s. Renee was very good in this movie and so was Kevin Bacon.

A very funny movie and I think it is something a family would enjoy if they watch it together even though it is rated PG-13. Expect for some scenes you might want to cover their eyes or shut their ears. :)

I wasn't disappointed from this movie at all. :) 8/10 A very solid performance from Renee and Kevin. :) I recommend for people to watch it.

Oh and also peace. :) lol
