My Date with Drew (2004)
A documentary that read like life, but with out the depressing crap like other documentaries.
I love this film. In my eyes it is perfect. I think that the production, narration, and people are amazing. I really loved how throughout the whole film he stressed how hard it is to get contact with someone as famous as Drew by the degrees of separation. His vulnerability and commitment to make something of himself in the business and make a dream come true in the process is genius. The greatest part about it, is that you as a regular joe schmoe can relate and really feel for him. When he was down you were very down with him. And when he finally got his date with Drew and felt that amazing high, I was right there with him and roaring with laughter and crying at the same time because I felt the relief and touching-ness that Drew gave him. And even better Drew herself really is this amazing kind and caring person who was flattered and I'm sure very excited herself. It was a real romantic comedy that no screenwriter could ever duplicate. Because at the end, he doesn't truly get the girl, but you still feel like he did.
Little Black Book (2004)
surprising and satisfying, non-romantic comedy
After a day of lounging around with a sunburn I was in the mood for a romantic comedy. When I picked Little Black Book to watch(for the first time), I was terribly and excitedly surprised by the brash and shocking ending. The movie tells the story of a young adult, Stacy, played brilliantly by Brittany Murphy embarking on a new career and a new aspect of a year's relationship. When Murphy discovers that her boyfriend's last girlfriend was a bulimic supermodel, she gets caught in a web of lies after she investigates his past 3 relationships while he is away on a business trip. While all this is happening, she leans on a new found friend, Barb, played maniacally by Holly Hunter. Near the end of the movie Murphy is ratted out on live television, by her so called friend played by Hunter. The twist from harmless love story to venomous real life enrages you, but entices your viewing senses. But the best part is that Murphy doesn't end up with a "lover" at all. She ends up with a dream job and Carly Simon.
The previous description isn't fabulous, I'm still sorting through what I have seen. I give this movie a seven because it was somewhat dull before the twist, which was like I said at the end of the film. Murphy gave a great performance as a strong yet vulnerable woman. Hunter does a great job of making you hate her without ever really becoming a villain. This is a great film for a person who can appreciate the comedic realities of life.
