*NEW* MISS YOU ALREADY REVIEW *NEW*

This cheesy little flick is one not to miss. The friendship between two life-long girlfriends (Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore) is put to the test when one starts a family and the other falls ill. The incredibly cheesy¬†opening sequence didn't set high hopes for me as we skimmed through the early years of Jess and … Continue reading *NEW* MISS YOU ALREADY REVIEW *NEW*

MAN UP REVIEW

Right leads. Wrong film. An easygoing, if incredibly silly little rom com that does just enough to keep you smiling for 90 minutes. A single woman (Lake Bell) who's mistaken for a stranger's blind date (Simon Pegg), leads to her finding the perfect boyfriend. When Bell's character Nancy first graced the screen, I could feel … Continue reading MAN UP REVIEW

THE AGE OF ADALINE REVIEW

Lively and Huisman excel in an easygoing and endearing love story. Even if you may have seen it all before. A young woman (Blake Lively), born at the turn of the 20th century, is rendered ageless after an accident. After many solitary years, she meets a man (Michiel Huisman) who complicates the eternal life she … Continue reading THE AGE OF ADALINE REVIEW

LOVE, ROSIE REVIEW

Love the cast. But the film? The film was actually a lot better than I expected. Certainly better than The Best of Me and that's down to the chemistry of two very likeable leads in Claflin and Collins. Yes, yes! I saw a rom com . . . and I liked it. Kind of. It's … Continue reading LOVE, ROSIE REVIEW

THE BEST OF ME REVIEW

Not the best for me. Two stars for the two couples. James Marsden (X Men), Michelle Monaghan (True Detective) and their "younger" counterparts do their best to uplift an incredibly tame and cheesy love story but . . . alas! To no avail. Another film to be adapted from another Nicholas Sparks novel and hopefully … Continue reading THE BEST OF ME REVIEW

THE REWRITE REVIEW

I think this needed a few more rewrites. A real shame. Hugh Grant applies his bumbling, miserable British charisma to this terribly drab yawn-com that delivered little on romance or comedy. I know. Hugh Grant has been playing the same character for years. Why would he change? His last offerings may not have been timeless … Continue reading THE REWRITE REVIEW

*THROWBACK REVIEW* A NEW YORK WINTER’S TALE

An unexpected watch. Went in to the screen (not literally) expecting the usual luvvy duvvy guff (my terminology for romance stuff), but came out surprised. A well-acted love story that is as different as it is strange. Cudos for the concept but not so much for its execution. Great chemistry from a great cast shies … Continue reading *THROWBACK REVIEW* A NEW YORK WINTER’S TALE
