Little Black Book (2004)
I went into this movie not expecting an epic (come on!), but at least a halfway decent film to take my mind off things for an hour and a half. And, after wasting that hour and a half on this pathetic excuse for a rom-com, all I can say is: wow. I didn't think it was possible for a movie to be this bad, even after seeing Rumor Has It... (side note- don't see that one either!) I can usually put up with Brittany Murphy- I loved Uptown Girls- but she got on my last nerve. The plot was clumsily thrown together, and for a supposed comedy, I laughed out loud exactly once (at the phone smashing bit- gotta admit, that was hilarious). Even some die-hard fans of this movie admit the ending was one of the worst in romantic comedy history, and as a complete non-fan, it was just appalling. The only part I appreciated even a little bit was the way the writer avoided the trap of having Bean and Stacy get together. But overall, without a doubt one of the worst movies I've ever seen.
Just an amazing cinematic work
Since I was only five when this movie came out, I didn't get a chance to see it until about two weeks ago, and I can't stop watching it! This is without a doubt one of the best movies I've ever seen, and not just because of the romance. The second part of the movie was amazing and very moving. Everyone knows about the Titanic and what happened to it, but I had never considered just how tragic it was. This movie opened my eyes to what really happened on the "unsinkable ship."
Some people say that the romantic dialogue was cheesy and unrealistic. I can see where they're coming from: I read somewhere that Rose says "Jack" 80 times and Jack says "Rose" 50 times. However, I'd never considered that until I read that comment. The romantic part was just as enthralling as the second half. It's about a romance that could never be; somewhere, in all our lives, we can relate to this. By the end, I was sobbing my heart out for Rose and Jack.
So to everyone who saw this movie originally in 1997, loved it for about six months, and now is constantly ragging on it, please stop. This is a cinematic masterpiece that needs to be and should be enjoyed without analyzing it. This movie is truly a classic and will be loved for generations.
