The Wedding Date (2005)
This movie was soooo cute!!! It was one of the better romantic comedies that I've seen in awhile. I much prefer Dermot Mulroney in this movie than in My Best Friend's Wedding with Julia Roberts. While the movie did have a very simple plot it was made totally enjoyable by the wacky cast of characters and great one-liners that they tossed out. It highlighted how families can put the 'fun' in 'dysfunctional'. It also had some very good serious moments between father and daughter, and man to man. The movie was about a wedding, and like weddings it encompasses both endings and beginnings. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves to laugh and loves happy endings.
The Phantom of the Opera (2004)
Bad Bad Bad Bad Movie...
This movie.. was a waste of my time.. when the actors were actually acting.. some of them were decent. It seems that Andrew Lloyd Webber was attempting to combine the elements of his original hit production on the stage with elements of the original novel written by Gaston Leroux. I've never seen Phantom on stage or off, I've only listened to the original cast CDs of Michael Crawford and Sarah Brightman. Butler is no Michael Crawford and Emmy Rossum can sing, but she's no Sarah Brightman. The only acting I enjoyed the tiniest bit was by Miranda Richardson as Madame Giry, and Ellison who played Meg Giry. The main cast however appeared to me to be a bunch of little children dressing up in mommy and daddy's clothes and trying to be taken seriously. The effect was over-dramatic and pathetic. The attempt to make all the characters younger and hipper and adding in an element of rock and sex to draw a younger audience... Terrible. And unnecessary...I heard the original score when I was only 10 years old and loved it.. I didn't need rock chords and sexy motions to appreciate how wonderful it was. I enjoyed the film Moulin Rouge better, and if you ask anyone I know.. they'll tell you that I hate Moulin Rouge.. I think this movie is lucky to get a 4.. I'd give it a 3 out of 10.. 3 1/2 at the most... If you have no previous experience at all with The Phantom of the Opera in book or Broadway form then I'm sure you'll love it.. but for anyone who has had experience... well.. I saw both the young and old walking out of the theater.. and I didn't blame them.. I only stayed because I was there with a friend and we came in her car.
