That was one the dumbest movies I've ever seen. If you are a 13-18 year old girl, you might enjoy it, but for anyone else, give this a miss!
pretty slow and not much of a story line
One star for the outlandish idea that a gorgeous Brazilian film director could move into the suburban house opposite your parents' place.
One combined star for Miss Hannigan, Rory Gilmore and Sue Sylvester.
Minus one star for lame plot, repulsive little brother and contrived kookiness.
Now I'm going to find out what other films that Brazilian has been in...
Thought this would be the usual saccharin sweet chick flick for my teens. Imagine our surprise when it turned out to be an all round family movie with plenty of quirky characters, amusing incidents, and just enough romance. Most enjoyable.
This was very predictable, but still cute. It didn't have any huge name actors but I thought they did a reasonable job. Some of its attempts at humour, just turned out weird - aka choosing coffins. But if you are looking for a movie that requires little thinking, its good
A tepid little film. Watching it, I wasn't sure if it was hilariously bad or just bad, but its sheer banality and painful attempts at humour push it into the latter category. Really a shame, because Alexis Bledel (from Gilmore Girls) is a lovely actress; but she's stuck in an uninspiring role with an insipid leading man, and surrounded by other B-list actors all trying desperately to do something with the script.
Still, it was inoffensive. I like laughing at bad movies, and wasn't expecting too much, so I enjoyed it.
