Completely charmless mess
Just horrible, horrible, horrible.
We didn’t laugh – not once.
Just about every scene is set up to deliver a flat joke.
Honestly, we LOVE comedies, but this was neither comedy, or romantic. The plot about the Mum (Meg Ryan) whose son is in the FBI (Colin Hanks – who here acts as though he has a large plank inserted right up him especially in his scenes with Selma Blair) – starts with Meg Ryan losing 200lbs of fugliness suddenly becomes beautiful wealthy vivacious and sexy, much to the son’s embarrassment, is just tooo much. When a suspected wanted international art thief (Banderas) falls for her and the son is on the case the so-called fun begins. But it just ain’t fun. At all. What ensues is a comedy of errors and misunderstandings that is just plain toe-curling embarrassing.
This is one of the weakest comedies it has ever been my immense discomfort to see – nothing shines – and the target audience is what? Women in their 40s? – I suggest anyone would be just plain insulted by the lack of anything construing the most basic brain food here – there ain’t one smart line or original scene – it truly is neither comedy or romance.
The only positive is that this is totally harmless and won’t offend,but it won’t entertain either, it really is lobotomy food…
This is seriously one of the turkeys of the year and deserves to not only go straight to DVD but straight into the DVD bin…
Does no-one’s careers (Especially Hanks) any favours … avoid like the plague…especially if you’re fans of any of the actors…this will be, I guarantee, one they want to forget in a hurry.
Entertaining though not amazing
The real problem with this movie is the casting of Meg Ryan who looks ridiculously young to be mother to the FBI agent who’s obviously not a novice at the job so’s been in it some time. I think they needed a slightly older mother. Perhaps Ms Ryan really is old enough in which case she certainly looks fabulous – but I think she looks unreal in this part.
We didn’t need a Mom who’s acting like a teenager. We needed a Mom with a bit of decorum! It’d have been far more enjoyable – but then I’m not keen on “madcap comedy” which this was inclined to be. I prefer just “comedy”.
Banderas is fine in his part which didn’t require much acting but is quite enjoyable. The son is suitably prudish as he watches his mother embarrassingly fool about like a teenager. The son’s fiancée needed a far better part – the option was there to give her something worthwhile but it never materialised, The script is adequate. The movie’s worth watching once if you’ve time to fill.
