The reviews when i bought this was not that good. It looks like a B rated movie. Some characters tried to hard to be funny but came across as cheesy. I love the main characters and feel and see they were both stuggling. I have watched it twice..besides the ropey characters it is hilarous
I watched this film last night and to be fair, it is a game of two very distinct parts. The first chunk of the film is a fairly hectic comedy of errors with a bunch of neurotic characters arriving at a house to help celebrate the upcoming marriage of April, who's ex-girlfriend is hosting the party (although the majority of the guests are unaware that they were an item, or that April was gay). The characters are fun in an inoffensive way but they are one-dimensional caricatures rather than fleshed out real people. The stoned out brother has very little to say but is a lot of fun in his few scenes. Some of the acting is ropey at best but for the most part it is well played and the characters engaging if a little predictable as error upon error hits the shower as the hostess tries to keep it all together. So far, fun if not exactly realistic it was at least unrealistic in a jolly, comedic way.
Then the gear suddenly shifts a heap of inconsistencies of both character and situation pile on top of one another until by the end, all the good work that had preceded it has been completely undone and you find yourself completely bemused and at some points, offended by the storyline. A gay woman falls for a guy, a woman takes a man who has pretty much stalked her throughout the film and a woman who has made no mention of wanting kids or even being interested in men suddenly declares she is pregnant after trying it once to see what it was like. None of it was consistent with the characters up till that point and all of it designed to...actually I was so repulsed by it I didn't know why it had been done. None of the twists served the story (in point of fact it detracted from the enjoyment of it) and left a very bitter taste.
My advice to anyone wishing to see this movie is simple: DON'T! If you want to see a lesbian rom-com, there are far better examples out there. if you want to see a film with twists and turns, there are far better out there. if you want to feel utterly cheated, derided and insulted by a movie however, there are few come close to this.Read more ›
