A Great Girlfriend, A Terrible Wife
I went into this movie thinking it's going to be a sappy romance, fullto the brim with the old clichés.
Don't get me wrong, there was still a bit of clichés (not too much tostop you watching this movie though), but the way it was made just madethese clichés funny (I can't explain, you'll just have to see it).
But this movie to me is very original.
Eddie is a 40 year old single, and very unmarried guy, after going tohis ex-fiancés wedding (which turned out a complete embarrassment forhim) he sees a woman being robbed, after trying, and failing to stopthe thief he has a short conversation with the woman. Who would laterbe his wife after a short 2 months of knowing her.
Anyway I don't want to get too much into this movie, but lets say whathes in for is a honeymoon from hell, or maybe heaven.
This movie uses the romantic comedy genre much differently than a lotof other movies.
Its not a GREAT comedy, one that will have you laughing uncontrollably,but its still a good one with several awkward laughs.
What is weird is, this movie is good in many ways, acting is great,script is alright (could have been better). And the movie gets a bitrepetitive near the end (but not at all boring). But I still felt thatI should give it only a 6, its not about what it did have, its just howit had it.
Its not a movie that you'd watch a lot of, although I did watch ittwice in two days, that is probably all I'd watch from it. So I suggestrenting.
Just on the side, just because I gave it a 6 doesn't mean its a BADmovie (in fact its very good and I think everyone should watch it). I'mjust saying its not the best.
