How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days (2003) I have confessed it before, and I will say it again, I have a soft spot for romantic comedies.  I adore Kate Hudson and find this film to be on of my favorite romantic films.  I was really excited to take a look at this film again.  Unfortunately, it is not as wonderful as I remember it.  It runs a bit long due to lengthy scenes that would have otherwise been easily cut shorter. "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" takes an old plotline and brings into a new light.  The plot is essentially this; a guy scams a girl while the girl scams the guy.  Catch is that neither one know the other's intentions. Kate Hudson stars as Andie Anderson, an intelligent blonde that works writing meaningless articles for "Composure," the fastest growing woman's magazine.  She writes How-To articles ...

17 Again (2009) Disney does it again.  They have perpetuated a teen into stardom.  Like many teenage girls before him, Zac Efron has benefitted greatly from Disney's reach in the entertainment.  Now teamed up with New Line, Efron gets his first, okay well second, serious film role.  Having already appeared in the sensation feature film version of the Broadway musical, "Hairspray," Efron becomes king of the mountain in "17 Again." Efron doesn't leave the comfort of his "High School Musical" scene behind for this film, just as his fellow HSM co-star Vanessa Hudgens isn't leaving the role behind for her part in "Bandslam."  The film still has plenty of basketball, but thankfully no singing.  Sorry Zac.  However, the teenage girls will get plenty of eye candy time with Zac in this film, as he is the major star in nearly every scene. "17 Again" is ...

I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry (2007) I'm not sure exactly why other reviewers tend to critically pan this film.  Sure, it isn't deep or thought provoking, but it is fun and entertaining.  It ranks right up there with Adam Sandler's other silly films.  Having grossed more than $100 million at the box office, the film is definitely a success in the eyes of moviegoers.  I happen to agree with movie fans rather than the critics on this one. "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry" stars two of the funniest actors around – Adam Sandler and Kevin James.  Throw in Steve Buscemi and Jessica Biel and this film is half way there to great success.  Unfortunately, the plot is a bit weak.  But let's be honest, we are not really watching this film for a plot.  We are watching for laughs.  And in that regard, the film ...

Confessions of a Shopaholic (2009) "Confessions of a Shopaholic" had potential, but unfortunately, it doesn't know what direction to take.  The film is a farce on shopaholics that attempts to treat it as a serious condition, but ends up falling flat in between the two outcomes.  Despite a tremendous effort by a very talented cast, the film fails to capture the audience and provide much of any entertainment. I had hope for this film when I learned that Isla Fisher was going to play the lead role.  She was an absolute delight in both "Definitely, Maybe" and "Wedding Crashers."  However, even the warm-hearted Isla Fisher could not pull off this film.  Her opposite in the film is played by Hugh Dancy.  The two don't really display that chemistry on screen that is needed and thus we don't really care about their relationship. There ...

Bruce Almighty (2003) There are few movies that have a near perfect balance between drama, romance and comedy.  "Bruce Almighty" is one of them.  Jim Carrey is the master of comedy and delivers a terrific performance in this film.  I'm not one for religious-related films.  The only exception is when religion is playfully integrated into the film.  "Dogma" is another great religiously comedic film.  "Bruce Almighty" is only mediocre to most viewers when seen through the light of all film genres.  However, among romantic comedies, "Bruce Almighty" is a true hit. The film stars an all-star cast including, Morgan Freeman, Jim Carrey, Jennifer Aniston and Steve Carell (credited as Steven Carell).  Aniston delivers a great romantic comedy supporting actress role, while you just won't stop laughing at Jim Carrey's whackiness.  Morgan Freeman shows his comic side, while an early Steve Carell delivers an abundance ...
