This has to be one of the most boring and trite movies I've seen in years.
Weak plot and dialogue - I think the reviewers were being overly kind
Quite funny but I wasnt enraptured with it. Good cast.
I was disappointed with this one. Glad not everyone was.
Absolutely fun and deeply true: men and women really have basic misunderstandings in communicating!! Cleverly hilarious, i highly recommend it.
Funny/ sad/ truthful/ true to life
This movie was far better than I thought it would be, Jennifer Aniston looks amazing and alot of funny moments in this movie. Definatly worth a watch.
I LOVE Ginnifer Goodwin and she is adorable in this film but the rest of it is peurile. I am sick and tired of Drew Barrymore and her totally fake lisp that is sending this weird vibe like "Look, I'm cute like a little girl but I have these enormous boobs so you guys lucked out" The film makes Scarlett Johansen look like an evil goldigger and Jennifer Connelly has the worst role of her career.
Very funny and educational...haha...
A nice, easy to watch chick flick.
Self indulgent & dull,with a whole bunch of really horrible characters. I wouldn't be into any of them either!
forgettable! I fell asleep and decided I didn't care if he was into her or not! Frankly, I don't blame him.
A fun movie with a few sad moments, lots of chatter but easy to watch.
I really enjoyed this movie. Interesting to see various perceptions and ideas on relationships and the effects that these can have. I found most of the characters really enjoyable. Great chick flick to watch.
Took me lots of concentration to watch
found it boring
It helps to hear bad things about a movie, because then if you watch it, your expectations about it are very low. That can make the movie not as bad as you think it'll be. Works here. Justin Long is really good - think he's getting better all the time. Don't know if Bradley Cooper's bit really needed to be in there, but the rest isn't bad.
Whay can I say but pure chick flick mindless switch off escapism if there is nothing better on to watch.
Very good, highly recommended.
Chick Flick Alert................................There are some nut case women in this movie. I spent most of the movie on the net.
Good clean girlie movie - bit slow at times and sooooo predictable, but for a winter Sunday on the couch while the fella is at football, its great.
An ok dating movie, just lacked something - even though it was full to the brim with famous stars. A bit predictable.
Only a movie a girl can relate to. Pretty boring otherwise.
I must admit I didn't see the whole movie, probably missed a middle 20-30mins, but my partner said it was very much a chick-flick and found Jennifer Connolly as annoying as everyone else has said. Havign said that, she said it was easy to switch off and enjoy the movie. Excellent cast, which I assume was gathered by Drew Barrymore in her capacity as Executive Producer.
Enjoyed it thought it was great.
I liked this movie but it had a lot of characters to follow and was a bit confusing at times
Pretty interesting movie.
I guess if you can see yourself in cetain situations you can relate to the movie more.
What a waste of time i spent half the movie wanting to throw my remote at the screen and the other half wanting to punch Gigi in the face...and i could only watch 1 hour of it.
Such a girly film, just loved all of it.
if you want some light entertainment and no thinking involved this is the movie. BUT
if you like to see some substance to your characters, this is not for you. the most gorgeous Scarlett is really unbearable in this movie. Maybe you need to read the book to connect with these people.. but surely us women should all be complaining about movies with this type of storeyline!?
Pretty good movie.Just makes everything more set in stone.The guy in it has a great idea on love :) Save it for a weekly,not over nighter,lol
Predictable. Easy watching but nothing to be excited about.
After all the hype I was disappointed with this movie - maybe it was the interconnecting stories which didn't quite connect for me. It was all quite an accident really.
Very hard to follow. I got bored quite quickly with all the jumping around.
American Retelling of Love Actually and not very well done .. Ben and Jen in this are Great Ginnifer is too but Scarlett is very wooden
OMG!!!!!!!!!!! BORING BORING BORING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
An enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours.
It was a chick flick. But not a BAD one.
It was interesting to see Justin Long in this role, not like his other characters. Suprised at how little Drew Barrymore was actually in it. I wouldnt go out and buy it but if it were on tv i'd probably watch it again.
Love this movie - great acting. It's such a realistic movie and anyone watching could be experiencing what the actor is. Perfect chick flick.
Too much going backwards and forwards to keep up with the story
Ok, a little confusing trying to keep up with each storyline (a bit like Love Actually) but had me thinking about what we tell our Daughters of love and boys as they are growing up? Great line up of actors and I would recommend it but you, like me would want to watch it a second time for a better understanding.
It's not overly great or overly bad, just an easy going chick flick.
It's an American take off of Love Actually with out the British humor that made it so memorable.
Wouldn't recommend this movie unless you were on the dating scene.
I agree with most of the negative reviews. A basic chick flick that features a series of short stories about various relationships. I realise that was the main theme of the movie but it made the movie very shallow, we had to watch it twice to pick up the threads. With such a quality cast we expected better.
Reminds me of 'When Harry Met Sally' - bit too narrative for my taste. Not a movie I would recommend.
Typical chickflick, exploring each character's foray in romance.
Very good movie - Even for male viewers
It's a good movies about how men and women see each other on the dating scene.
horrible chick flick stupid storyline tried to watch but had to turn off after an hour
I have again been surprised and after a rocky beginning I really enjoyed this movie.
A waste of time, one of the worst movies I have wasted time on
I loved this movie it made so much sense which was scary
I loved this. Don't expect too much from it though. Very simple. A little slow to start with. Goes to show, women aren't so wrong in the end.
I really enjoyed this movie and i noticed it had an all star cast, but yeah it was a nice light hearted movie in the end.
Brilliant, loved it, great cast, SO true with today's technology! Very funny, highly recommend!
I can't say I could really get 'into' this movie. Despite a good cast, the movie wasn't something that I could get excited about.
its a chick flick but..............
I enjoyed the film much more than the book. The script writers did a great job of making a story out of it. There is a great cast and it is a fun chick flick to watch with the Tim Tams.
Loved this movie...watched it with my 16 year old daughter and we both enjoyed it.
I'd forgotten we'd both seen this 5 months ago on a plane. So no, it's not memorable! But yes, we watched and enjoyed it a second time and laughed and cried on cue in all the right spots.
About insecure women with no life, very boring. Didn't watch the whole movie as it was torcher!
This was a really enjoyable movie that had a lot to say. Will be enjoyed by pepole who just want the fluff and bubble type story but also deeper thinkers will find something that sticks in the mind.
This was not as good as I was expecting. It's kind of like 'Love Actually' in the sense that most of the characters are connected and the stories interconnect.
theirs a lesson to be learned in this movie for us women
Good movie ! at first I thought I was not going to like it Desperate GIGI was getting to me . But I held in there and enjoyed it. I agree was dragged out a bit, however enjoyable.
Entertaining in bits but doesn't hit any heights
These reviews are a bit harsh! I really enjoyed it. Probably because I see a lot of my friends going through similar situations right now. It was enjoyable to see such an ensemble cast weave a story together. No, its not very intelligent, but a good old cringe worthy romp.
better than I thought... some good lines and acting ..
definately a girls movie... can relate to all those answers to "why has he not called" ... along the lines of "love actually" format...
Excellent movie. I liked to see the range of actors, bouncing off each other in different scenes. Interesting to see who ended up 'being the exception.' Worth a watch. Might learn something about human nature.
I loved it great characters not to bad a story line, worth watching great chick flick.
Chick flicl...nothing more, nothing less. Rather silly
Enjoyable to watch. This is not a date movie though.
Mildly amusing but some people are terribly miscast - Kevin Connolly is terrible and Jeniifer Anniston is Jennifer Anniston (typecast).
Women will like it and guys will be upset as the game is given away on some scenes.
I was disappointed with this movie - maybe I had read
OMG this is possibly the WORST romantic comedy of modern times! What the?! The characters were completely unrealistic and often painful! We all rolled our eyes when Jennifer Connolly's character asked the contracter guy "are we good?". All three of us returned the same verdict - absolutely awful! And we were so looking forward to watching it. I am usually extremely forgiving when it comes to the romantic comedies - I can let cliche and corny slide in the name of fun- but this goes far beyond anything that I can stomach. We came so close in desperation to see the movie pick up pace and yet we couldn't force ourselves to watch it all the way through to the end. I don't know about the rest of you but we really just "weren't that into" this film!
I'm not that into this movie. Too much build up from the add shown on TV.
Was bearable but I still fell asleep - However I think I may not have been in the primary target audience :)
It's easy to forget that sometimes chick flicks can be a guilty pleasure. Unlike Sex in The City and Love Actually annoying characters and indulgent dialogue is easy to overlook.
Really seriously a tween movie. All the stuff we wish we knew at 13, but the kids are 14
Fantastic movie but didn't quite live up to the hype. I loved the fact that the ending wasn't one of those 'disney style happy endings'.
Ginnifer Goodwin and Justin long were perfect for their roles. Not enough good things to be said about them in this movie.Ben Affleck and Jennifer Aniston were brilliant in the movie but I would have liked to see more of their characters stories. Jennifer Connelly and Bradley Cooper were pretty good in this movie too. A little disapointed with Bradley character though. I personally like Scralett Johansson but this movie wasn't her best. All other non mentioned actors were brilliant too.
All around good movie, just don't expect a barell of laughs. Maybe shouldn't be clasified as a comedy. Maybe a drama or romance??
Magnificent movie that had me watch it twice in way day looking for the secret I missed about a little yellow packet (shhh secret) and end of film. Was fabulous and witty and so true! No longer am I telling my 4 y.o. daughter that when the kinder boys are using bad actions that means they like her.... No no no, now I tell her they are just playing games and wasting fun time this way. Must see - great, hilarious and Bradley Cooper's butt is definetly worth dry hump comment!
I can't decide if I like it or not. I think 'Love Actually' covered this one already. It's not a bad production it's just that it'd be nice to see something completely new and original. I think I was watching it more for the "stars" that I like.
It's entertaining, but it's way too long. Ginnifer Goodwin is great, Jennifer Conelly well played, and there's not enough of Jennifer Aniston. But it could have been at least half an hour shorter than it's two hours.
Chick flick light romantic comedy with a few good jokes here and there.
An expensive cast, good dialogues and funny scenes. Easy to enjoy but don't expect laughing your axx off.
Great movie, even better cast. Its got a real life ending, not a typical total happy ending. Loved it. Juston Long was amazing and you cant help but fall in love with Ben Afflecks character. There is a few heart wrenching scenes, and maybe even some too close to home. There is also a few good laughs. Goodwins character really epitomises female dating disasters and really makes you cringe. Overall very worthwhile. Even my man enjoyed it.
