My friend and I went to see this movie, and we both thought it was great. I loved the whole look of the movie. It looked like a documentary, but you really felt like you were there with them. I think that the music is great and the actors did a great job. I really liked the way they portrayed the time frame of the film. They told the story in a very interesting way. The film is a bit long, but it is worth it.

The trailer makes this seem like a generic comedy about an uptight Brooklyn family in the midst of the post-9/11 chaos. But it's much more than that. It's a film about the devastation and devastation of war and how people react to war and how different people from different backgrounds react to war. The film takes us on a journey through the lives of the seven family members of the Hughes family, who are all orphans of a war. The film is centered around the Vietnam War, and the family struggles to keep a family together amidst the death of their father. We follow them as they get caught up in the emotional upheaval of their father's death and the relative confusion of the war. The family struggle to have a normal life while in a war zone. The film is essentially about the repercussions of war, and how people react to war, and the things they do and think to cope with war. It's an incredibly funny and thoughtful film, with very real emotional undertones. The performances are great, particularly from the two leads, and the film is written so well. It's a very different film from the norm, and I highly recommend it.

Just like Liza and Eric, there is no way I would consider this film a "romantic comedy" (for the most part). It's a movie about the inner struggles of a man to become a better person and get back to being a husband and father. There is not a single scene of anyone showing emotion. I was really surprised by that, because normally, you'd expect that in a romantic comedy. But the filmmakers were so very true to the story of this film. It's funny, but not in a cheesy, immature way. It's funny in the old-fashioned way that you need to be able to actually see a movie to understand how funny it is. But if you can, watch it.

In a time where all you want to do is just kick back and relax, watch this movie. It's not like any other movie you've ever seen before. All you have to do is go into it with an open mind and then you won't have to think about it afterwards. There are no back story, no plot, no "great" or "unbelievable" moments. Just a simple story of a man who has to do what he has to do for the love of his family, for his job, to pay the bills. The movie is so much better than some of the movies that get big box office numbers, because the subject matter is just so much more important. If you're looking for a movie that will make you laugh and make you cry, this is the movie for you. If you're looking for a movie that will make you think and will make you ask yourself questions, this is the movie for you.

What a great film. While some may think it's a movie to kill two hours of their life and forget, others will find it so fascinating, they'll want to keep watching it, and they'll love it. From start to finish it's the most enjoyable film I've seen in a long time. There are some flaws and they are easily forgiven because the writing and acting are so strong. This is the sort of movie that you don't need a plot or even a strong central character to enjoy. I'm glad I saw this movie and will be watching it again, and I'm certain I'll be looking forward to seeing more from Adam Sandler. I'll definitely be checking out his upcoming projects!

This is a great movie. I got a chance to watch it at a screening and I really enjoyed it. As an environmentalist I am in support of The Story of Stuff. The show is based on a book and basically is about a group of ordinary people who go on a fishing expedition to find the biggest blue crab. I thought the acting was great. I love the writing and I think the director does a great job of creating the narrative. The movie has a great story and interesting characters. They really pay attention to the people in the movie and not just give them lines and moves. I recommend it highly. I hope they get the rights to make a movie with their big movie star.

I liked this movie because it had a nice story, the acting was good, the special effects were great, and the characters were well portrayed. The movie was fun, and it was interesting to watch. You may not want to watch this movie for its story, but you might want to see this movie because of the special effects. If you enjoy watching a movie about superheroes, then you should definitely watch this movie. It was good.

I have just watched the film again and would like to add that it is well worth watching. The acting is wonderful and the direction is brilliant. Any movie about life is never as good as those who made it. Richard Curtis is a genius. I wish he could get a new film made and for every negative comment about this film, there should be a positive one and I hope the studio will reconsider. I see no reason to stop making more films, but I don't see this being the last.

Although it is a comedy, it is not a romantic comedy. I think that it is not meant to be a romantic comedy. I believe that is the way the director was trying to express his ideas and thought. So I believe that it is a great film. The script is very good, the actors are great, and the photography is very beautiful. But the best thing about the movie is that it is not a comedy. It is a movie that gives you some insights into the lives of the people in the film. If you are interested in the lives of people, the best way to do that is to watch the movie.

I think this movie is a great idea. It's a movie with lots of social themes and even some dark themes. But it's not a movie about drugs and prostitution, or about any issues in society. This movie is more about human problems, the problems in a society. It's a movie that is about how we can do better in our own lives, about how we can make change, and how we can be true to ourselves. It's a movie about how we can look at ourselves and make changes for the better. It's a movie about how we can be a better person. This is a movie that will have a lasting effect on me, and I hope you can enjoy it as much as I did. I just hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did.

A strange country guy in Chicago (Michael Keaton) meets and falls in love with the curious and gentle editor (Diane Keaton) of his local paper (Yaphet Kotto). The man hires her to become an editor for his latest project, a daily newspaper that will be featured in a major newspaper in New York City. The man's name is Will Thompson (Brad Pitt) and he is a good writer. He has everything: his dream, a wife, an apartment and a baby daughter. He has his office and his daughter plays in his sandbox. Suddenly, the editor (Diane Keaton) becomes Will's 'other woman'. Will finds himself struggling to adapt to the way life has changed. Can he leave his one-time life of privilege to love again? At the same time, Will realizes that the woman he has been trying to leave is actually a gift from his past. Will finds out that the editor is really an old girlfriend of his - because she left him for the editor. Will soon learns that life has different meanings and there are no absolutes. Will finds out that a newspaper editor can be hard to please and too hard to read. At the same time, he becomes a teacher to a young college student who is also a columnist. So, life will change for Will and his family as they face the reality that new relationships and new freedoms are too much for them to handle. Overall, 'The Upside' is an entertaining and intelligent romantic comedy. It is about finding love in a different way and accepting the changes of your life, regardless of what it is. The movie is funny and it has a happy ending. I would give this movie a rating of 8. This movie is worth watching and it is definitely not one of the worst movies I have ever seen!

I love this movie. I have read the book before and the movie was great. I read the book after watching the movie, and was really surprised. I was left wanting to know more about David; I had already read the book so I know it was somewhat accurate. It also covered a lot of stuff that I wanted to know, but wasn't really in the book. I don't know how the cast knew how to act as well as they did, and the whole cast was brilliant. I think this movie is going to be a lot more successful than the book was. The movie was actually better than I expected. This movie was so moving and emotional, I was teary eyed a couple of times. I don't understand why the critics didn't like the movie. I thought it was very well done. I would definitely recommend the movie to anyone who hasn't seen it yet.

I actually gave this film a 9, but then I realized it's not worth it. It was a good film, but a mediocre film. If you want to see a good film, rent Ocean's 11, or Dumb and Dumber. This film is the same thing. I wish it was better, but that's not saying much.

I was truly blown away by the quality of this movie. It was unexpected and a complete surprise. It was certainly a great movie, but I was never ready for the quality of it. It has a very realistic portrayal of real life and real people. I would recommend this movie to anyone that has a desire to see a quality movie. It's a very important movie to have in your collection, and I believe it will be very popular.

I was also bored on this one, and too. I love movies that have no plot or plot twists to make the movie entertaining, but you just want to see a bunch of people dancing to music and then being mad at each other. It's easy to do. So why not throw in some violence and tension to make it interesting? Well, I don't know, but for the most part this is a very interesting movie. I understand that it doesn't have a story, but just enough to keep you interested and looking. I thought it was a little overlong, but the tension and violence keeps you in your seats. Also, I was surprised at the amount of nudity, which I normally don't like. I also love it when people act like that in a movie. I think that the movie was mostly based on people's dreams or their imagination. It seems like the director and writers were in charge of making it real. And I'm not talking about the characters, I'm talking about the dream world that they create. The acting is great. We get a new group of characters here, who weren't seen much before. Which is why I recommend it, and still wonder who the actors are. The people here have a connection with each other, and it is very believable. In the end, it's a really good movie. If you have nothing else to do and you like to watch a different movie, I recommend this one.

Think "Spring Breakers" meets "Pineapple Express." A group of women who work in a women's prison (the name) and become involved with some of the male inmates. A lot of things happen, and it all starts to look like the beginning of a movie. Unfortunately, it goes way too slow. But it is a good movie that goes over all the typical male stereotypes. I really enjoyed it. The film is good. I gave it an 8. To me, it's a better "RocknRolla" than "Pulp Fiction". This is not a "hardcore" movie. It's a solid, intelligent comedy. Great acting and acting. It was a real treat. See it if you like.

One of the best movies I've ever seen. A real gem! The movie is really funny and entertaining. The characters are very well made and the acting is superb. This movie is also very educational. You learn to be more flexible and positive. You learn about the big world of drugs, how to deal with them, what happens when you don't do it and what to do in the end. I recommend it to anyone who likes a good movie with a lot of humor. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who likes to laugh a lot. This is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. I can't say anymore about it because it would be boring. I also recommend the movie to all people who are interested in watching a good movie. It is a very enjoyable movie, very educational and a great movie to watch with your family or friends. It is a real gem and you shouldn't miss it. Thank you very much for your effort!

At the start, I thought this was going to be a boring "dumb" film. But after watching it and realizing that the director made it this way, I can see how he had an idea to make it so bad. It is not exactly a "dumb" film as it is actually funny. I am not really one for watching films with tons of drugs in it, but this movie has tons of plot holes and is not a comedy at all. I am not really a "good guy" nor a "bad guy" as I have my own opinion on people, but this film is just plain stupid. Also, the only thing I enjoyed was the ending. I still like it but I have seen worse.

It is impossible to say how the first one went because i loved it so much, but after watching the second one i was already anticipating the third one. i don't think it will be as good as the first one, but it was good enough for me to continue watching it, and i am happy with it. i am not quite sure what to think of this film. one thing that really struck me in the first one was how the movie end, and this film's movie ends basically the same way, and how people should take life and be the best that they can. i found this interesting because i think i felt like it was the same in the first one. Overall the first one is way better than this one, and i think the second one is more a continuation of the first one and not the entire sequel. but regardless it is a great film and worth watching.

It seems like all the critics seem to have missed this movie, so here goes. Even the most artistic and elaborate rendering of "beach ball" came off as a real beach ball, and the performances and screenplay were nothing but good old-fashioned goofiness and clever satire. In this modern day, even the movie could be played by someone who had not heard of this movie in the past, and the audience would probably be awed by how fast, easy, and fun it was. It's definitely not a very original piece of comedy, but you know a movie is low-budget and packed with jokers, it does not necessarily have to be. It is certainly a box office draw. If you go see it, you will definitely enjoy it. The end, while a bit predictable, was also a highlight. If you have been alive during the 70's, you know that you can come out of a movie with a big smile on your face.

This is a funny, thought provoking film that does not offer a big plot or dramatic story line. It follows the lives of a group of young people who are just looking for love and happiness, and are not going to change anything. If you have read the book, you will not find much new in the movie. I was impressed with the acting by the cast, and the story is interesting enough for it's own sake. It does not offer a lot of suspense or surprise, and it does not try to make you think. The performances are great and the story is entertaining, but it does not have a lot of twists. I did not get the meaning of the ending, but that is my problem. I could have done without the ending, but it is not a bad thing. The script is written well, and the director does a great job of creating the feeling of the movie. Overall, I recommend this movie.

I'm not sure what I expected. I wasn't expecting a dry, insightful look at the West Virginia coal mines, or a coming of age story that ends with a massive heartbreak for a struggling son and a sweet, bittersweet look at love. But I was pleasantly surprised with this film. It's definitely more about the human condition, than it is about the character development, which I don't mind as long as the main character's story is compelling enough to hold my attention. And I did notice that the mother (Kerry Washington) wasn't the only character in the film to find her own voice. But that's all I really wanted from the film. I thought the interactions between the three sisters (all played by the same actress) were quite believable, and the film does a good job showing how the three women are all forced into taking on a serious job and how their lives have changed for the worse when they do. I was also impressed by the cast's ability to create genuine feelings and feelings of anger and frustration that are not preachy. The most touching scenes in the film were when the three sisters are alone in the room. The film does a good job of creating a feeling of not being loved or understood and of feeling like your own family is going to be ripped apart at any moment. I did find myself looking away from the screen, but it was only because I was getting angry at the film for not being a movie that I wanted to see. It did what it needed to do, but it wasn't exactly what I expected. So, 9/10 for me. If you liked this, I highly recommend the Hunger Games. The difference here is that the female protagonist in that film is more of an equal to her male counterparts, which makes for a more compelling story. The more I think about it, I realize that this is a film I can easily see myself watching again, at least for a second or third time. I liked the performances, I liked the story, and I thought it was an interesting take on a real-life story. So, give it a shot. I think you'll like it.

Now, here comes a movie I actually saw in the theaters this weekend. It's called, "The Upside". It's a hilarious little movie, about a successful father's struggle to recover from the fact that his gay son, who works for a struggling press, is falling for a male journalist (Cameron Diaz) and their game to determine which man is the better potential parent. It is, without a doubt, one of the funniest films I've seen in a long time. The humor is spot on, the acting is spot on, and the plot is spot on. And, most importantly, it's a movie that you can watch over and over, and never get tired of it. I saw it for the first time in the theater a couple of years ago, and it remains the best film I have ever seen in my life. And, yes, it's that good. It's a great comedy that's always funny. Even if you don't find this movie very funny, you will probably laugh about ten times. It's definitely worth a watch!
