Fun AND Colorful
2 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I almost never, actually just plain never, choose to watch romantic comedies. But I was invited to a special viewing and damn! This was a well-written witty film with good science humor and the doctor from Star Trek Enterprise, so that was a good start for me.

The production quality is amazing, with excellent colors making it very pleasing to the eye. To accompany the visual appeal I enjoyed the light-hearted feel displayed through upbeat but not loud music, never too slow pace, and skillfully not over-woven subplots.

Another element probably not noticed by most viewers is the accurate portrayal of post-doc lab environments and the frustrations of our PhD scientist people. Thus the plot becomes very plausible.

So while I never choose to watch romantic comedies, I have in fact seen many, and this one kicks the crap out of all of those!
