If you want to watch a good movie about big city life, this ain't it!
6 April 2011 | by TorontoLiverSee all my reviews

Toronto Stories is not a good movie choice if you want to see a film about Canada. This film depicts Toronto in all the wrong ways, kid! This so-called movie isn't really even a movie, just a long commercial!

Toronto Stories is about the lives of four totally different people, all taking place in Toronto. But the film is just too dull and messy for any of those 4 stories to make sense! The damn dialogue is not good at all. The poor actors are talking throughout the movie, but there is nothing interesting in what they're saying. The actors themselves now, I don't think those actors are that bad, but in THIS film, they don't do a very good job. Carly Pope played the wife of an escape convict, and she played a kind of good role. There were a couple of good scenes in the movie, but unfortunately, the bad scenes outweigh the good ones, and the movie's just too boring for most people to enjoy. There are lots of other good movies that are boring but are at the same time interesting. Toronto Stories is not one of those movies.

I live in Toronto, and I hated this film! I think the movie could of been better if there was more comedy, and good comedy. This movie was also extremely unfunny. Please skip the movie Toronto Stories. This is a really terrible movie!
