Genre: Comedy, Romance
I had heard many people who loved this movie and recommend this comedy. Therefore, when I got the chance I had to give this movie a watch 😛 . The overall story is pleasant and I can’t say I wasn’t captivated from beginning to end. The actresses who played the main characters all performed great and I liked the fact this movie is lead by women 🙂 . However, the humour was not as great as I was expecting. The humour felt off or overdone and it tried to force us to laugh along at the comedy elements. Don’t get me wrong I did laugh at parts and it was not terrible 😛 . I think its main problem was the main character herself. Annie (although portrayed brilliantly by Kristen Wiig) was not a very likeable character. I get her life was awful and at times I did feel for her but the problems she faced became annoying. She became dislikeable as the story continued especially her attitude to people and that moment in the bridal shower was horrid. The only characters I did like in this movie were Megan (Melissa McCarthy), Helen (Rose Byrne) and Rhodes (Chris O’Dowd) 🙂 . I did like the growing relationship between Annie and Rhodes (except for her attitude part way through). However, it is saved by the ending and I can’t say it wasn’t entertaining. This is an alright movie that is possibly worth the watch but it is not as great as others may say 😛 . If you like crude humour with your romantic comedy then this is for you 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 3 Stars out of 5!
