With a tendency to be quite picky about the movies I like, I watched "The Makeover" with some hesitation, not knowing what to expect.
The movie was well made, with good actors. It never felt like a cheaply made or poorly acted movie. If I were to pick any character that I least liked (not necessarily for their acting, but possibly including that), it would have to be the 'mother'.
The story moved along well, without feeling like it was dragging or moving too fast, either. Well balanced.
Movies that are too sappy, or over-the-top romantic, are not to my liking, and was glad that this one was easy on that front.
The only complaint, if I was going to point something out that took away from the movie for me, it would be the one bad time incongruity that I believe occurs in the movie. After '5 weeks' for the office staff not to know about any changes with one of the main characters was lacking in realism. People talk, and they simply would have already known. Period. Without this flaw, I would have given this movie a solid 9/10, but with it, only 8/10.
