Urgh. It’s been a while since I’ve disliked a film as much as this. Well-known actors putting in awful performances of unlikeable characters, what’s to like?
I’d seen it before but I obviously decided that I no longer needed that memory. Still, it wasn’t long before I remembered why I hated it the first time: Ginnifer Goodwin playing one of the most naive, stupid characters committed to film; Justin Long (who I normally like) playing an omniscient smart-arse; and, umm, everyone else. They’re all that forgettable and dull.
It’s like a masterclass in how not to write likeable or realistic characters. I genuinely can’t think of one in the entire film. So yeah, don’t watch it. Or do, but don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Hopefully I’ll watch something that I’d actually like to watch soon, rather than relying on whatever’s on Film 4 that we can’t be bothered to turn off.
