Lack of Subtlety, But Could Be Worse
Wow, the reviews of this one are pretty harsh. I want to congratulate the film makers for not using profanity, sex, or violence. That in itself is refreshing and inspiring. It honors Romantic Comedies of the fifties and early sixties, which entertained without corrupting our souls.
I agree with the many reviewers who said the comedy and antics in this one were forced and didn’t work, to a large extent. However, a scene in a unique restaurant was reasonably original, and one in a crowded car was somewhat cute.
Both leads were attractive and performed adequately. I don’t think the roles were much of a stretch for either one, but that’s o.k. They are who they are, like Doris Day and Rock Hudson were who they were. I’m sure both of these actors will do some more drama in the future.
What the film lacked was subtlety. It was so frenzied, and tried so hard to be cute, that I felt a bit edgy in my seat. I wanted to say, “Just relax and let me find out more about who these people are.” Even a few more quiet scenes with heartfelt dialogue would have sufficed.
But I guess the makers were committed to a formulaic approach. The price they’ll pay for that is that the movie will quickly fade from your memory. That is not necessarily such a bad thing, as it did entertain, kept clean, and left one feeling some sense of hope about love.
I prefer that to pictures that add to my cynicism.
When In Rome… Get Out
With the release of 2009’s moderate hit “He’s Just Not That Into You”, audiences proved that with enough star power, even the most mediocre of films could make a smash at the box office. Following the trend, 2010’s first romantic comedy ‘When In Rome’ hopes to achieve the same success with similar tactics. Sadly, if it’s level of quality were indicative of how far it’s legs will take it, the film may have been better off as a straight to DVD release.
The star powered film stars such front-line actors as Josh Duhamel, Kristen Bell and Danny DeVito, with an ensemble of B-listers that seems to never end. Focusing on Beth Harper, played monotonously by Bell, the movie is a meld of fantasy, comedy, and a lack of fresh ideas in Hollywood. The film begins the moment that Bell’s lead character drunkenly delves for coins in the bottom of Italy’s ‘Fontana De Amoure’, a poor choice which leads to five would-be-stalkers falling in love with her. The rest of the film is devoted to her trying to discover whether the one man she does love, Nick Beaman (Josh Duhamel), is truly her match, or merely the same as the rest of the crazed lunatics she’s trying to avoid.
While the film maintains it’s good intentions of romantic comedy lore, there are simply too many wincing moments that seem so terribly dated, quite often put on display with use of Duhamel’s character and the poles that he repeatedly walks into, as example. In terms of overall acting, audiences may prove genuinely surprised by the lead male’s performance, as the ex-Transformer star manages to successfully portray himself as the flawed charmer he is – all despite the massive chasm of chemistry that he shares (or doesn’t) with Bell. In terms of the acting from the ‘Veronica Mars’ star, Bell’s fifteen minutes of fame seem to be quickly drawing to a close, as she continues her simplistic, emotionless portrayal of a girl that is just ever so unique, or at least wishes she was.
In regards to the nearly non-existent script, there are a few genuine moments that play out as the Director most-probably intended them too – that is to say that they managed to get a laugh from the audience, a sad rarity throughout the flicks 91 minutes – a run-time that seems to drag on for at least half an hour too long. Without a doubt, slapstick is the ruling theory of comedy in this film, but if one manages to pay close enough attention, they may find themselves appreciating some of the more subtle jabs. Likewise, the observant viewer will undoubtedly take notice of the plethora of cameos speckled across the film – keep an eye out for the ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ nod, Pedro included.
With all this said, the film is by no means the worst thing to hit screens in recent memory – said trophy belongs to the more deserved ‘Toothfairy’ – but it definitely has it’s niche audience. A definite date movie, movie buffs may want to take a pass on this for the time being, particularly with the multitude of Oscar-Bait movies making their way to to screen. For those truly unsure about the flick, take a safety – wait until it’s release on DVD to give it a go; if you play by the rule of ‘Kirsten Bell Looks Confused Again,” it could even make a half-decent drinking game.
