Very interesting film. Was caught on the premise when seeing the trailer but unsure as to what the outcome would be for the showing. As it turns out, it was a very good film.
It's entirely possible that sending the audience out feeling lousy was intentional
It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
This film is so real. It treats its characters with so much care and sensitivity.
Sometimes you need a movie that just winds around pretty clothes, successful dreams and friends who sometimes let you down by mistake.But this is no 'Clueless. The script actually presumes you may understand Shakespeare jokes and have reached a certain age when you step up and make a success of yourself. The fun female leads don't do clappy hands and girly shrieks when they talk about guys.Krysten Ritter and Kate Bosworth bring thoughtful performances with a well balanced and light comedic touch. The movie harks back into the delightful froth of the forties where a comedy of errors always leads couples astray.Share a comfortable laugh at grown-up share housing, accidental baby dating woes and absolutely no Mall visits.
This movie sucks. From the horrible fake Aussie accent of Ross Coiro, to the horrible acting that comes especially from him (he is particularly bad even though he gets little air time. This movie has a lot of mediocre and better talent, but put together they do not add up at all. Seriously save yourself the hassle of watching this and if you still think it is a good idea, you are a jackass, but hey, I do not have the same tastes as everyone else, but there is a reason this movie was not successful and made very little money and that you can find it in discount movie bins all over the place. Honestly this is one movie that shouldn't have been made. If you are desperate for a comedy of the same genre but better, check out what to expect when you're expecting
The thing is: so i get preggers... my life is over. I'm sorry, but to my recollection, sex should be a choice. I think this whole movie is just a waste of time. Of course things will change. Nothing funny came of it, and it gives a terrible message to youth. Come on, I have a baby because I cannot wait to find a condom and have sex.... OMG! my life has changed! not good writing. It was not believable. How about some more hilarious hijinks of having a baby, instead of the inappropriate, "none of my friends want to hang out with me now that I have a baby.... they are still of partying age, but I don't care... they should cater to my whims... because I had a baby... waaah" It wasn't funny, nor did it have good content.
It was a gem.Don't let the naysayers steer you away. I haven't truly enjoyed a movie like this in a while. Give it a chance and make up your own mind. The worst that could happen is you turn it off after a few minutes.The characters were smart, and even though it is a little predictable, it was smartly written. Great performances by Krysten Ritter and Kate Bosworth. I also enjoyed the strange character of Henri, and Rachel Bilson was both as ditsy and charming as you would expect.To be honest, I didn't find a single thing about it to be unlikable. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good laugh and unique characters that will leave an impression. 10/10
