    ______________________________ ______________________________

    Having yesterday off, my friends and I went to go see an 11 am showing of the movie. Personally, I can't resist the savings of $5 on a ticket in the morning.

    The critics gave the movie bad reviews, but it wasn't made for the critics; it was made for the audiences. With that said, I was surprised by how much I liked it. I think it may be one of my favorite romantic comedies. When the movie finished, I walked away knowing that I would get this one on DVD when it comes out.

    To give you guys a feel about what to expect, it's sort of like Crash, minus the racism, violence, harshness, and all that jazz. Replace all of that with love, sex, laughs, and flowers.

    Two problems I had:

    1) Taylor Swift and Taylor Lautner were expendable. To be honest, the movie could have gone on without them in the movie. But to look more at the positives, they did step out of it with a hyped-up relationship... which is now over, but whatever.

    2) When Julia (Jennifer Garner) went to

    She should have been

    It made me go, "Huh?"

    Anyway, if you're into romantic comedies, then go out and see this one!

    I like all kinds of movies, but I do like watching a good romantic comedy from time to time. Well, I hate horror flicks, but that's it.

    And I haven't watched Love, Actually yet, sorry Duxxy. I'll be sure to take a look at it. When I do, I'll post my thoughts in the "What Films Did You Watch Today?" thread, since I find myself spending most of my time on FoRT in the Movies forum nowadays.

    Along with Wimbeldon it's one of my favourite rom-coms. Love, Actually has an all-star cast too.
