Fanciful, disturbing, and wildly original, it announces the arrival of a fresh, bold voice in American cinema.
Easily the biggest piece of Right wing non sense propaganda I ever saw.
While it doesn't offer any answers, it both thrills and makes you think.
I didn’t really have many expectations going into the movie (good or bad), but I actually really enjoyed it. I really liked the characters and the banter between them.
I hardly know where to begin to write a review of this film. To me this film fell short on so many levels that I cannot help but conclude that even the writers and craftspeople who worked on it didn't really care about it. I mean really care about it. I think the original was such a big hit that they all just went through the motions here hoping for a 'goodwill' paycheck. Therefor I refuse to spend for time on this review than the artists did on this project. As such I will just say that the script was extremely cliched, misogynistic, predictable, and dated.
Spoiler alert!!!!!So, the billionaire guy being beyond perfect and a little too grovel-y is soooo not logical I had to suspend belief as much as I do when watching marvel film Fight scenes where no one important ever dies (that's for another review, another time.)Lastly, she chose the wrong guy. Why would you choose someone who is emotionally stunted, doesn't know how to care for you and you never succeeded at having a lasting relationship with him? Even though we all know she will choose him in the end like always, it would've been sooo refreshing to see the character make a smart choice for once and pick the good guy, who knows how to take good care of you and respect you, and be fun, positive, kind, etc. not to mention Patrick Dempsey > Colin Firth (sorry Darcy fans.)
No movie should get a rating higher than 1 star, that makes a joke about genocide. It's neither smart, neither funny, it's just completely tasteless and awkward. I for one certainly don't believe, that movies necessarily need to have a positive message, but laughing over genocide is just too awful to appreciate anything else that this movie might offers.
Bridget (Renée Zellweger) is a 43 year old news producer...spinster. She has retired her ovaries. Daniel, one of the two loves of her life, has passed on. She asks herself in Austen fashion, "Is Mr. Darcy, Mr Right?" She goes away on to a music festival (one that has Ed Sheeran). It is called a "Sodom and Gomorrah with tofu." Here she meets Jack (Patrick Dempsey) and hooks up. Later at home, her and Mr. Darcy (Colin Firth) a married man, come together after 10 years of cat and mouse. As you already know, the question becomes, "whose baby is it?" The film is a romantic comedy, with Bridget loved unconditionally by two wealthy men, apparently not uncommon for 43 year old pregnant moms who don't know who is the father. The support cast was excellent and the film boasts a Joe Cocker, "Up Where We Belong" moment...sort of. We don't get to know who the father is until the very end...This was a fairly good comedy with top stars up grading what could have been an average film.Guide: F-word. Sex. Male rear nudity...and not pretty at that.
