This movie is just plain bad...
I purchased this movie to watch with my wife. I really like Romantic Comedies (more than she does in fact) and from the reviews and a quick review of the premise, I thought this would be a great movie choice for us. (At the time of this writing, it's rated 9.2/10 on IMDb.) And considering it cost $5.99 to rent and $9.99 to buy on Amazon, I thought, "It looks cute, we'll probably watch it again at some point, I should buy it!" My wife cautioned against the move. (Lesson to be learned: Trust your bride's intuition!)
I feel I've been duped. The reviews must be from friends and family of the filmmaker because this film is bad... I mean BAAAAAADDDDDDD.
1. The writing is bad. 2. The acting is beyond bad. 3. The story arc is truly worse than bad. 4. The premise is actually not bad at all. 5. But the execution is... well... you guessed it.
I really wanted to like this movie, I did. But as my wife kept making fun of it, and the fact that I chose to purchase it, I had to concede that yeah, it was terrible. I'm writing this review to save others from making this mistake. Don't believe all the 10/10 "friends and family" reviews... that is what we call "crazy-talk". My wife highly-encouraged me to write this review (after some 10 years of rating things on IMDb, it's my first review) because I think she thinks it's our duty to the Internet or something. In fact, she was legitimately upset that I gave it a 2/10. She thinks it doesn't deserve that high a rating. I could at least see where they were going with a half-way decent premise that was then shot to hell by poor execution.
Save yourself. If a 9.2 rating for this movie (on the level of a "Shawshank Redemption" or a "Godfather") seems too good to be true, it's because it absolutely and totally is.
