Good romantic comedy
5 August 2015 | by surangafSee all my reviews

I only gave it 5/10, judging it as a general movie. But as a romantic comedy it scores much higher.

It ticks off all the usual romantic comedy plot points, very competently and satisfyingly. Man meets woman, falls in love, unwilling concealments leads to misunderstandings and obstacles, everything gets worked out at end with help of friends and love, there are tears. Though thankfully there is no villain.

It has likable (but not perfect) clean cut white characters, with token minority characters. It is shot in tourist brochure backgrounds.

It stays within the bounds of modern western politically correct 'liberal' ideology, as such is outside bounds of realism. It preaches honesty, being true to yourself, reality and power of perfect love, etc. As such most of the dialogue is not worth any attention.

However, i found movie genuinely funny at points, not unintentionally either.

Another extra, it has Amy Acker, always a very good thing in any movie or TV. Other actors were not bad performers either, though some of the direction was bit clumsy.
