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!
