Hits it's mark...hey if you want Shakespeare, maybe Hudson an McConaughey aren't for you!
2 March 2008 | by chersull_99See all my reviews

My 11 year old daughter and I, big fans of "How to Lose a Guy..." went to see this last night because there really was not another movie we could agree on. I was reluctant based on the HORRIBLE reviews this movie received, which I now believe were completely undeserved.

I'm as big a movie snob as anyone. Yes, I saw "La Vie En Rose" in the theater the week it came out. I love the Coen Brothers and anything written by Charlie Kaufman. I'm no stranger to so-called "good" films.

But guys - if you're looking for high-brow, why oh why would you expect it from Kate and Matthew. I mean, have you BEEN to a movie in last ten years? She is Goldie Hawn's daughter. I mean, duh! We were very pleasantly surprised by this movie. The scenery and cinema photography were beautiful. I agree completely with another commenter's statement that it was a great cure for SAD. This movie was fun, and sweet, and everything you'd expect from this cast.

Go see this and have fun!
