Quotes

Jamie Randall: [Last lines] I used to worry a lot about who I'd be when I grew up. You know, like how much money I'd make or, umm, like some day I'd become some big deal. Sometimes, the thing you want most doesn't happen. And sometimes, the thing you never expect does. Like giving up my job in Chicago and everything and deciding to stay and apply to med school. I don't know. You meet thousands of people and none of them really touch you. And then you meet one person and your life is changed... forever.

An easy formula that insults my intelligence (once again)
23 June 2011 | by See all my reviews

Here's a recipe to make a romantic comedy about an annoying couple:

01) Jake Gyllenhaal's butt. 02) Anne Hatthaway's tits. 03) A lot of sex scenes to attract men audience that are there just for their wives/girlfriends that wanted so bad to watch it because, you know, men are sexual. 04) A lot of drama scenes to attract their wives/girlfriends that, until that moment, wasn't interested about Anne Hatthaway's tits because, you know, women are sensible. 05) An infamous discussion about love, leading to nowhere. 06) A very uncommon disease but not cancer, because cancer is now cliché, so... let's talk about Parkinson's Disease, that happens 99,9% of the time into old people population, but they decided to make a movie about the 0,1% of young people that can be affected because, you know... 27 years old Anne Hatthaway with Parkinson's Desease is now prettier than 81 years old Clint Eastwood. 07) A (un)funny-fat annoying ugly character to make comedy time effective. 08) Some unnecessary war between sexes for later discussions. 09) Some lack of rationality. 10) Confident-hard-as-rock characters that are able to hurt each other but deeply they have sensible souls. 11) And finally: the birth of love no matter its obstacles.

That's it. You just have to mix it all and the success is granted and then the movie is able to receive unbelievable 7.3 of general ratings.

Awful movie using the same awful formula for an awful easy money return. Not even Jake Gyllenhaal's legs can save it.
