Recognizable, but too annoying
In a way this movie is quite recognizable to me. I also have made a deal to marry my best friend when we turn 30. She also has a boyfriend and I’m alone and yes, I do compare all girls to her. But that is as far as the similarities between the movie and my life go. No way that I would ever try to get between her and her boyfriend and certainly not when they decide to get married.
Still, I loved the story and the idea behind it, but I can’t say the same about the whole movie. There were so many things that ruined it for me. For instance: what was all that singing about? Is it really necessary to hear Cameron Diaz singing out of tone for more than two minutes? Do I really want to see the whole family singing a song about love, in the middle of a restaurant? There is only one answer to these questions: the fast forward-button. The same for Cameron Diaz’ character. Damn, I start running, kicking and screaming for help if I ever meet a girl like that. I really don’t see what is so great about an overactive, lunatic 20-year old with too much money to spend.
Even though there were many things that I hated, I can’t say the same about the plot. I admit that I didn’t expect to see what I saw. Congratulations to the makers that they made the movie end in this way.
If all the scenes that annoyed me would have been cut out, I would have loved this movie, although I don’t know if much would have been left of it. Now it crossed the line too many times, annoying me just a little too often. I give it a 6/10 because of the good idea and the unexpected ending of the story, but if it hadn’t annoyed me that much it would have been at least an 8 or a 9. Too bad!
Say a little prayer for more movies like this one.
Julia Roberts gets a great opportunity to showcase her talent here, and she runs with it. Some of her physical comedy bits are reminiscent of Lucille Ball. She plays a character that could come off as a real jerk, but her natural charm and self-deprecating manner are endearing. She displays real acting chops, especially in the scenes on the tourboat and in the gazebo.
Cameron Diaz turns in a real star-making performance as a ditz who becomes a wildcat when threatened. Her acting in the karaoke bar is fearless and really establishes her character’s personality.
Rupert Everett, is, well, fantastic. He acts as Roberts’ conscience, and delivers some of the funniest lines in the whole film.
This is one of the most uproariously funny mainstream Hollywood movies to come along in a long while. The script is packed with zingers, and the cast makes the most of it. At the same time, it has some genuinely poignant moments. Don’t let it pass you by.
