Worst and most predictable movie I've seen in 2016
15 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

I feel obliged to write my first movie review ever, in order to bring the rating of 'The Beautiful Fantastic" just somewhat down to reality.

Both the story line and the dialogues are brimming with predictability and clichés. The clichés are badly disguised behind superficial botanic and a mental disease that seems invented only to give the unambitious tale an edge. If you've celebrated your 8th Birthday you'll be able to figure out that it is all an exemplification of empty pretentiousness and that the movie is as stimulating as 'Maid in Manhattan' (2002) starring Jennifer Lopez. It is the worst imaginable, run off the mill example of a toothless granny drama cursed with caricatures and the most feeble "grumpy old man" humor ever.
