Yesterday Raina, Kylie and I went to see this movie...and we all enjoyed it. While it was a total chick-flick it still contained a huge amount of truths about dating, love, and relationships...but then that's probably just the little detail that turned it into a chick-flick.
We found ourselves sitting in a deserted theatre (It was a Monday. No one goes to the theatre on a Monday.) which actually turned out to be a good thing. We could be as loud as we wanted, talking to each other and the characters on the screen in turn. There was a lot of talking. Mucho mucho talking. More than the usual talking. We could all (or at least I cetainly could) put ourselves into the place of one character or another...it was kind of pathetic really. Almost any type of dater you can imagine was portrayed perfectly. This was the reason for the talking. We'd be sitting there and suddenly realize: "THAT'S TOTALLY ME!!!" Then a conversation would insue about how we compared.
I think that's a universal thing with this movie. It's something that we can all relate to, because who among us hasn't known the feelings associated with pacing around the house waiting for the phone to ring? Overall, it was a job well done. I'd wondered how a movie based upon a self-help book would turn out, but the product was wonderful and heartwarming, and comes highly reccomended from me...with the suggestion that you take along a few friends to share it with.
