Since I was in the mood for a comedy, I decided to give this movie a shot and check it out. Plus, I was stuck on a plane and again it looked like most of the movies they offered, I had already seen! (surprise, surprise!)
As for the story, I thought it was a bit unrealistic. Then again, we do go to the cinema to get away from the realities of day to day life and in the end, it is all about being entertained.
During one point in the movie, another girl (played by Malin Akerman) was introduced into the story (an ex of Ryan Reynold’s character). Here I thought the story may take a turn and go in a different direction, it could have made the story more interesting and more believable.
But, it went into a more “predictable” direction. Though, I felt it was a bit “unrealistic.” I don’t want to spoil it for you, but let’s just beg the question “Does love happen over night?” Maybe, maybe not. To me, it all happened way too fast.
Though, this film had its moments. There were bits of entertaining parts in the movie that made up for the lack of realism in the story. I especially liked the part of Ramone, (Oscar Nunez) who plays Oscar in the television show “The Office.” He was very entertaining to watch here. I also enjoyed the part of Grandma Annie (Gammy) played by prior “Golden Girl” Betty White.
All in all, I think this was an ok movie. It wasn’t great. To me, it’s not really a movie you need to go run out and see. Honestly, it’s probably best left in the NetFlix queue for those times when your choices are kind of limited and when you’re in the mood for a romantic comedy type movie
Happy movie watching!
