I waited until this was able to be rented to watch it, and I am satisfied with the 5 bucks spent. This movie had a great balance to me: romance, comedy, drama, etc. I think a film has to resonate with you on some level in order to really appreciate it, and for me, being single and contemplating life is exactly where I am. We don't need another movie encouraging women to be so independent that they vilify and emasculate men, nor do we need another one making us feel like broken wings waiting on Prince Charming to ride in and save us. Real life and love happens somewhere in the middle. This movie wasn't depressing, but it wasn't some Cinderella fairy tale either--it was just life happening, good, bad and everything in between. Rebel Wilson played the comic foil in the movie as usual, but even her role and character had some layers. They even made a quick spoof on "50 Shades of Grey" in one of the scenes with Dakota, not sure if anyone caught that. I cringed thinking it was going...
I didn't have much hope for this one. The trailer looked like another one of those all-night-party flicks without any real cogency. I bought it for my wife as a potential date night flick and to my surprise I probably liked it better than her. Instead of being dispensable fluff this flick actually has resonance and well drawn characters. I was about to dismiss Rebel Wilson's party girl as cliché but in the end her character is given dimension and a rationale for her seemingly destructive behavior. Dakota Johnson is quite good as Alice, a young woman who approaches with trepididition being alone without the encumbrance of a parent, sibling, or significant other . Leslie Mann is also superb as Meg, a fortysomething obstetrician who wants to be a mother outside the constraints of a relationship. This isn't classic stuff but easily earns its place in the Nicholas Sparks-Bridget Jones compendium.
Super funny!! I bought this movie to watch with my mom on a rainy day. I am 23 and she is older. I though it was absolutely hilarious. She didn't think it was that funny. Or at least she pretended she didn't. I could see her snickering while we watched the movie. It can be a little crude at times but that just makes it funnier. This one of the greatest casts. These women are all very funny and I was very pleased with the movie. It was money well spent.
