LOVEFiLM By Post

A group of interconnected, Baltimore-based twenty- and thirtysomethings navigate their various relationships from the shallow end of the dating pool through the deep, murky waters of married life, trying to read the signs of the opposite sex--and hoping to be the exceptions to the "no-exceptions" rule. Gigi just wants a man who says he'll call--and does--while Alex advises her to stop sitting by the phone. Beth wonders if she should call it off after years of committed singlehood with her boyfriend, Neil, but he doesn't think there's a single thing wrong with their unmarried life. Janine's not sure if she can trust her husband, Ben, who can't quite trust himself around Anna. Anna can't decide between the sexy married guy, or her straightforward, no-sparks standby, Conor, who can't get over the fact that he can't have her. And Mary, who's found an entire network of loving, supportive men, just needs to find one who's straight.

I won't include any spoilers on this mixed up & crazy romantic tale of several relationships & how they intertwine & relate. This is a well-crafted relationship movie rather than just a romcom. Sure, there's comedy in it but there are also some fine performances from a stellar cast.

We have the married couple who probably shouldn't have got married. The girl looking for love. The guy too scared to look for love. The guy whose seen what he thinks is love etc.

Made in 2009, this movie is actually based on a self-help book (I know - I don't know how that works either). For me Jennifer Connelly's sad, bittersweet story stands out, as she's a woman trapped with a man who doesn't really seem to love her.

There are twists & turns in this, I also advise having a tissue handy for a fantastic endings, with all tales tied up.

Get the wine & popcorn in, you'll love this.

This is a slightly more adult version of Love Actually. For the first hour it's a quite insightful film offering some interesting and often very realistic observations about the dating scene. Justin Long's character in particular has some interesting views on pick up artists.
The film isn't particularly funny but it does touch on some issues that we can all relate to, so there are opportunities for laughs but often it just left me feeling uncomfortable. Unfortunately the last half hour is a bit of a cop out (much like Love Actually) where everyone gets what they deserve. Even though that's an acceptable way to end the film it's just not really in keeping with the mood of what went before. Even so, this is well worth a watch.

This appears to be a love film written by somebody who has absolutely no faith in men. If you doubt this, re-watch the film and see how many of the men in it actually act in a manner that makes them likeable to their girlfriends/wives. I can only think of Justin Long's barman, and for a film that advertises itself as a romantic comedy, that's a pretty bad footing to work from. Having said that, the writing's pretty hard on all of the characters, with even perhaps the most central female role played by Ginnifer Goodwin having astoundingly poor judgement and an almost unrealistic manic air about her. Jennifer Connelly plays bravely against type as a horrendously overstressed wife with a 1 millimetre fuse and a very aggressive temper. Drew Barrymore's character perhaps comes out the best of all the female roles due to portraying a rather sweet sense of longing - a sense of "if only I could meet the right guy" rather than the crazed manic state of mind of half of the cast. Justin Long's character is far from a stereotypical nice guy, but his blatant honesty and lack of pretence, coupled with his natural charm, help make what could have been an objectionable "you're doing this wrong" style 'mentor' role a clever and interesting character. On the whole, the storylines are flimsy, and some of them just aren't memorable: for instance, I know Jennifer Aniston was in this movie, I'm just struggling to remember any of her acting. Many of the storylines are misjudged as well. The Affleck and (Aniston?) storyline ends up feeling almost more like a case of a guy caving under relationship bullying than wanting to compromise. The story Connelly is in is perhaps the worst of the bunch, a very sour bunch of grapes that taints the whole fruit bowl.Read more ›

In the same vein as Love Actually (only american!) this film is a well paced, well cast, interesting, tearful, laugh out loud, well observed night in. (Personally I love the John Hughes reference to Some Kind of Wonderful...) Each individual story within the film stands up on it's own and occasionally intertwine with each other in a non cliche way. The design and scriptng of this film ensures that no matter who you are you will find a character to identify with and although there are some big names in there no one steals the limelight and some genually underated actors get to showcase their talent on an equal footing. It's not the usual 'chick flick' offering as the manly men out there get plently of opportunity for some laughs. Overall it's a film that leaves you sighing with satisfaction at the end. I would recommend a watch as it will not fail to disappoint.

This film is one of the worst "romcoms" I've seen. Everyone in this film seems to have some kind of personality disorder. There is no way that Gigi is a normal person, as she seems to stalk every man with a pulse, and I also have my doubts about the woman who's married to Bradley Cooper (I have no idea of most of the characters' names). I couldn't tell if I was supposed to root for Scarlett Johanssen's character, and Drew Barrymore's character was the most normal one by miles.

The male characters were no better. All muppets! No character or personality, and it was just bad - I didn't want anyone to end up with anyone else in this film, and it just had these random sound bites from extras, which didn't really add anything. They would have done better to work on characterisation and personality within the existing stories.

I have seen it twice now, and it didn't improve upon a second viewing, so I'm donating the DVD to charity tomorrow morning.
