What is the point of this film?
on 30 December 2009
The only possible audience for this film might be young teenaged girls who could find it romantic and cute. That said, they will need to be young teenagers with an understanding of who Frank Sinatra was, and that doesn't seem very likely nowadays.
Otherwise, this is a tedious, humdrum film that labours under delusions of being witty and delightfully "out there". Frankly I wish it had stayed "out there" and never entered my living room.
The acting is passable given the inane script, with the exception of the leading actress Ione Skye, who manages to be deeply dull and extremely annoying at the same time. Personally I think she should consider changing her professional name to Ione "Sigh", as that is what she does throughout the movie. I must admit I joined her heartfelt exhalations on more than one occassion while watching it.
Dreadful film...adults avoid at all costs.
