Bridesmaids (2011)

When I first saw the trailer to this film, I knew it was a movie I wanted to see. It seemed very entertaining and fun to watch. And, when I read my film blogging pal ReelTalker’s review – it just confirmed it. Let me just say, this movie did not disappoint. From the very beginning, this film was all about the laughs. And, let me tell you – I laughed a lot. (Note: For those of you who have seen the film, you’ll know what I’m talking about). Both the cast and the script were brilliantly Read more [...]

The Extra Man (2010)

“Women outlive men. There’s always room for an extra man.” – The Extra Man Recently, I stumbled upon this film. And, I must say – it’s definitely not your typical type of movie. But, in a good way – in a unique way. Being unique is definitely the word for this film. Let me just say, it’s not a predictable movie at all. (Note: For those who have seen it, you’ll know what I’m talking about). This is a very quirky kind of film with quirky type of characters. Kevin Kline (who portrays Read more [...]

Cedar Rapids (2011)

“Today is the first day of the rest of his weekend.” – Cedar Rapids Recently, I had the opportunity to see this movie as I was invited to a screening. Now, I had not heard of this film until I received the invite for the screening. Before making a decision, I took a look at the trailer and found myself pleasantly amused. So, I decided to go ahead and check it out – I’m glad I did. The main character, Tim Lippe (played by Ed Helms), is very similar in nature to the character of Andy Read more [...]

Going the Distance (2010)

“A comedy about meeting each other halfway.”- Going the DistanceWhen I first saw the preview for this film, I knew it was something I definitely wanted to see. Though, I was a bit up in the air as to whether or not it was worth it to see in the movies or better to hold off as a rental. As it turns out, I went to go see it recently at the movies. It was an “ok” type of film. But, it wasn’t really the great story I had hoped for. Basically, the concept of the movie touches upon the choices you make Read more [...]

Dinner for Schmucks (2010)

“Takes one to know one.” – Dinner for SchmucksWhen I first saw the trailer for this film, I thought it was a bit silly. Actually, too silly. To be honest, it didn’t really look like my kind of movie – slapstick comedy is not really my kind of comedy. Though, this film was highly recommended to me by many. I was told this movie was silly but really funny. So, I decided to take this advice since I was in the mood for comedy – I’m glad I did. From the very beginning of the movie, there were so many Read more [...]

Sex and the City 2 (2010)

So, I finally had the chance to catch this movie based on the popular book and television series. I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. While I am a fan of the series and did enjoy the first movie, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect in the sequel. I mean, what else could they possibly add? Only more fun and laughter. And, that was basically what this movie was all about – more fun and more laughter. The opening scene was a bit long and quite extravagant. I won’t ruin it for you, but let’s Read more [...]

It’s Complicated (2009)

“Divorced with benefits.” – It’s Complicated Since I was in a comedy type of mood, I decided to check out this movie. Honestly, I did not have high expectations for it – I thought it might have just been an ok kind of film. Boy, was I wrong – it was hilarious! So, we have the main character Jane (played by Meryl Streep) who is a self reliant and divorced business woman (she owns a successful bakery). (Note: I’m not sure if they casted her in this role because of her performance in Read more [...]

Napoleon Dynamite (2004)

Recently, I re-visited this movie. It’s one of those films I can watch over and over again – it’s very unique and unlike your traditional comedy type movie. What I really enjoy about this film is that it’s relatable on so many levels. There are references to so many things that remind me of my childhood days. From the tetherball game, the rollerblades, the “Glamour Shot” type business by Deb, those small little homemade friendship bracelets, etc. This film is truly a blast from the past. It’s funny Read more [...]

Hot Tub Time Machine (2010)

“The tub is some kind of energy vortex, like a black hole but instead of being in space it’s, you know, in a hot tub.”- Hot Tub Time MachineBack in this last post, I had mentioned how I was still up in the air about this film. But, I finally caved in and saw it – I’m glad I did.(Note: For those who saw it and compared the movie to “The Hangover”, I’d just like to say – it was very close. This film is similar in nature, though I still think “The Hangover” is a bit more funnier – both films are very Read more [...]

I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell

“God, I hope they serve beer in hell.”- I Hope They Serve Beer in HellLately, I’ve been in a comedy type mood so I decided to check out this film based on the book. (If anyone’s read the book, I’d definitely be interested in hearing what you think). (Note: I’m sure some of you are thinking about how ridiculous the title sounds. But, then again so was “Hot Tub Time Machine” and from what I’ve heard, it’s a very funny and entertaining film).Ok, so you’re probably all wondering why a girl like me would Read more [...]
