This is my first review here, and I just want to tell you guys that I loved this movie. I liked it so much that I've made a dedicated account to this movie just for you guys to know what I thought of it. It was funny, exciting and enjoyable. And it made me realize that life is great. You don't have to be a writer or a director to be happy in life. Just enjoy life and go with it. And you should also know that I'm a fan of Amish movies, and I thought this was an excellent addition to that genre. Just remember that you're not the only one. Good Luck Everyone!

I can't remember how many times I've seen the previews for this movie, but every time I saw them I was in awe of it. It's one of the best movies I've ever seen. I never see another movie that could rival this one in a great way. The movie starts with a pretty fast pace, and you're laughing from the beginning. You get to know the main characters and you become attached to them. But as the movie goes on, you realize that they're just as messed up as everyone else. In the end, you just want them to get together, and live happily ever after. What can I say, it's a great movie, and it's a true must see.

When I first saw this film I thought it was a very nice little comedy and I immediately bought it on DVD. It was a good film, but I have to say that it was not as good as I expected it to be. It was funny, but the plot was really weak. There were a few things that were funny, but it wasn't as funny as it could have been. The ending of the film was extremely good, but I was disappointed with it because it wasn't very good. I don't want to spoil anything about the ending, but it is very good. I think this is a really good film. It was funny, and it was a nice film to watch. It was nice and sweet, and it was very entertaining. I think that it is a very good film, but I think it's not as good as I expected it to be. It's okay.

I liked this movie so much. It was funny and it was so well written. I love the relationships between the main characters. The comedy is a bit exaggerated but its good for people that like to see a good romance. This movie is very real. It is funny and it is nice to see a movie that has a positive message. I recommend this movie to anyone. This is definitely a movie that will have you laughing and a lot of tears.

It's a beautiful, delightful, charming movie that is worth watching. Every actor in it did a wonderful job, and the writing and cinematography were gorgeous. I loved the way they presented it, I mean, I really did! I didn't get tired of watching it, and I was pleased with the ending, but it was a little surprising, and I wasn't expecting it. I think I would recommend it to anyone, especially couples.

An interesting premise. Set in rural USA, with a couple of successful women struggling to be better than they are. This leads to them both going off on a journey to find their way back. In doing so, they encounter all manner of strange characters and situations. Quite unique, I must admit. Great scenery. The women are all very attractive, and the photography is quite artistic. A lot of funny moments, and a very enjoyable story. The characters are likable enough, and the film moves along well. It is a nice change of pace, as it lacks the usual Hollywood fare that most people expect. This is one film I will be looking out for. Not a comedy, but definitely a light, relaxed film. Very recommended.

I saw the movie last night and I enjoyed it. As usual, the guy who plays Jack is extremely likable. I am glad he was picked to play the lead role, because he is good. I really liked the music. The guys did a good job. I am glad they didn't shoot the movie in another country. I thought they did a good job with the "How to" sections. The DVD is well done. It is the second one to come out this year. I am glad the movie didn't waste any time and just got it out of the way. The acting was very well done and the film is very nice. I don't know why some people have rated the movie bad. I think it is great. Overall, I would give it an 8 out of 10.

I've seen this movie so many times that it's almost become a ritual. It was a great movie to watch over the years, and I watch it now and then. It's one of those movies that is so quirky and unique, that it doesn't get old. I recommend it to any movie fan who is looking for a fun movie to watch. If you haven't seen this movie yet, you should check it out.

I have never seen the original and so I had no idea what to expect. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a film that has a reputation for being so good. I would guess it is for that reason that it is very popular. As the original is very unique and well done, I couldn't be disappointed in this film. It has a great storyline, excellent characters, and is hilarious at times. It is very dark, but at the same time it is humorous, and in the end, makes you feel good. It is full of very clever jokes that you will laugh at. I haven't seen anything like it. In the beginning, I thought it would be just like any other action movie, but it turned out to be a lot more than that. If you are looking for a light romantic comedy, this movie is for you. I would say it is definitely one of the better films I have seen in the past few years. I would give it a 9.5/10.

I loved this movie. I laughed, I cried, I cried, and I couldn't stop laughing. I loved the characters, and the whole tone of the movie. It is just so much fun. It is full of personality. It has a sense of humor. It is just very interesting to watch. There is something about this movie that I can watch over and over again. It is just so fun and nice. I would love to see a sequel.

An Irish couple fall in love in Hollywood. They drive to Mexico for a honeymoon, and end up having a fling. They never had sex. This is a great comedy. The guys are great, especially Howard Deutch. It is not a "chick flick." It is a good movie, and one that I would recommend to any young guys.

This movie is a "must see" for anyone who wants to know what happens when you get dumped. It shows what happens when you get dumped and it shows you the reasons why. Great movie. If you get dumped and want to know how to be nice to a woman or if you want to know what it's like to be a loser, then watch this movie. It's not just a movie to watch but a movie to live. I've been on the receiving end of some of the things this movie shows. It shows the many things that happens when you're dumped and also shows what the reasons are for being dumped.

This is a movie that could have been so much more if it was not based on a true story. This is a story about a young American woman who is a full-time secretary for a very famous Canadian businessman. She meets the daughter of the wealthy businessman's wife and she is introduced to him. She becomes his mistress and they start a relationship. But when she goes to Canada she is not allowed to work. She comes back to the U.S. She discovers that she has not had a boyfriend and she tries to find a man and get back to Canada. She is very, very turned off by all the things she sees in this world and tries to change things for the better. It is a very enjoyable movie. There are a lot of great things that are in this movie. The story is great, the acting is great, the music is great, the direction is great, the story is great, and the costumes are great. I highly recommend this movie to everyone.

This is a great, simple, fun movie with a very good ending. This movie has good story, interesting characters, and great actors. The movie shows how any ordinary day in life can turn into a horrible tragedy. The main character, Chris Taylor, gets knocked off his bike and crash in the middle of the road and lands on a moving car. This car is a Honda Civic. Chris, believing it was his fault, tries to convince himself that the crash wasn't his fault. The car is impounded and Chris is fired from his job at a gas station. Chris is told by his boss that he has a couple of days to do whatever he wants with his life. He can have whatever he wants, but he will have to stay within the law. Chris is shocked and stunned when he finds out that the car is worth more than what he lost on the bike. Chris wants to get his job back and find his old life back. The only way he can do this is to make a new Honda Civic. There are many twists and turns in this movie that you won't see coming. The ending of this movie is so great. Chris is such a great guy and he just does the right thing. You can't help but fall in love with him and his new Honda Civic. I loved this movie. I'm glad that it was made. I can't believe that this movie isn't as big as it should be. I know it has it's problems, but I was glad that this movie was made and I will watch it again. The ending was so great and it was so funny. I can't believe it took this long for this movie to be made. I'm glad that Honda, Honda, Honda was brought back. Honda, Honda, Honda!

I've seen the trailer and I thought it looked pretty good, so I rented it and watched it today. I've been waiting for this movie to come out and I can't wait to see it. The characters are all so different and they all have their own stories to tell. The story itself is very interesting and gives the audience a unique look at modern society. The story and the characters will take you to a place you may not expect. There is a plot twist that will surprise you. This is one of those movies you need to see in order to understand. It is an intelligent and insightful movie, so be sure to see it.

When I first saw this movie, I was like "Wow. this is going to be a great movie." And it is! I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. The movie starts out with the narrator describing the way he first met and became acquainted with Gail. We then move to Gail's boyfriend, Lyle (Chris Pine) and his family, the rest of the movie we follow Gail's travels around the country. This movie is very unique and entertaining. The characters are great, the plot is great, the acting is great. The film really doesn't have any flaws at all. This is one of the best movies I've seen this year. The movie is great. I highly recommend it.

While many of the reviewers here are more interested in the reason why we love these films, I thought I would offer some other thoughts as well. This is not a film that is meant to be taken as a serious study of the human condition, but rather a funny, easy to understand piece of escapism that was enjoyable enough to justify sitting through the first hour and a half. It is a comedy about a guy and his favorite chick, and while that might be a stretch, it is what this film was about. The first half was actually kind of interesting, but the second half just kind of dragged and was pretty forgettable. The characters were pretty flimsy and thin, and the film kind of just gave me a bad headache. The film seemed to be trying to make me feel uncomfortable, and while that was the case, I couldn't help but feel sad about the situations they were in. I didn't even care about the characters, and it was just weird and sad. Then I decided to give it a chance, and after that, I really enjoyed it. There is some decent chemistry between the leads, and even though the acting was pretty bad, the film does hold up pretty well. The dialogue was pretty good, the actors were good enough to carry the film, and the humor was not overly dumb or over the top, it just kind of kept my attention and didn't let me leave the theater feeling cheated. All in all, it was a good movie, and I don't regret watching it.

This movie is a great family movie for the whole family, and I recommend it to anyone who has not seen it yet. It is one of the best family movies I have ever seen. The acting is wonderful and all the characters are likable. The story line is great, and the characters are likable. There is one question I was wondering when I saw the movie, what is wrong with the background music? The music is supposed to be happy, so why do the characters have this annoying loud noise at certain times? I also don't get the reason for the ice cream truck that is seen every 5 minutes. I thought it was just because of the music, but I could not see it. This movie is a family movie, and I recommend it to anyone who has not seen it yet.

This film is a delightful film. I don't know what is wrong with people who are commenting here about its quality. The film is a simple, almost painfully simple story, but it is so charming, so delightful and so beautiful, that you forget about its simple content. It is a tale about a young man, a young man who has some challenges. He is a sort of anomaly in this society where people are not allowed to have any kind of individuality. He has a serious handicap that he has never been able to overcome. He is seen as different. He is a young man, who has no place in the world, who doesn't fit in any other place, where people treat him badly. His father, his mother, his whole family. The point is, the movie is based on the life of a young man who is sort of an outcast, who is almost a tramp in this society, and yet, is always the best person in the family. He is a quiet, yet great man, who tries to be the best, and who tries to do the right thing. He is the family hero, who has everything going for him, and who is loved by everybody, even if he is not wanted by everyone. The point of the movie is not the actual plot of the story, it is the contrast between the man who has never been able to take a wrong step, and the person who never has any troubles. It is a simple story, but it is so sweet, so uplifting, and so beautiful that you forget all about the simple story. The actors are just perfect, as usual. The story is so simple, but it is so wonderful. The characters are all so cute and simple, and yet, so good. I don't want to give away the ending, but I think that it is a wonderful and very touching one. It is an idealistic and beautiful message, and yet, the message is not simple. It is a sort of drama, that doesn't seem to have any difficult or hard points, but it is so wonderful. This movie is an excellent movie, and is something that I would recommend to everybody. You will definitely enjoy it. It is a wonderful movie, that is very delightful, very funny, and very touching. It is not for everyone, but it is for everybody. 9/10

I am of course a big fan of this movie, and I was very pleasantly surprised to see that it turned out to be a good movie. It was very funny, and it was very nice to see how Mr. Lincoln dealt with being a politician and dealing with his wife, and of course with the people around him. It was very well done. I think this is a movie I would like to see again, because it was just so good. I would like to see this movie on a big screen with the sound turned up, because it really adds to the movie. Overall, it was a great movie.
