Expectations going in:
Not high…not low. I mean this is the kind of movie you know what you are going to get.
Some actors are fun to watch no matter what the movie is about. Really…how can a movie with Ben Stiller, Matthew Broderick, and Eddie Murphy be bad? Just seeing those guys makes me smile.
Sure we all have a general idea of how this movie will go, what will happen etc…but sometimes we all just need an easy distraction.
Look out for:
Gabourey Sidibe – she was the Cinderella story of the Oscars a couple years ago as the star of Precious. I loved her showing off her super funny acting skills.
You will like it if:
You want a lighthearted movie that requires absolutely no thinking
Matthew B makes you smile since you first saw him in Ferris B Day off
You are a fan of Eddie M
No. If you haven’t seen 50/50 – Moneyball – Ides of March – or Footloose - see those first.
Would I go with my mom:
Yes. My mom and I would both agree it was a cute formulaic movie.
Good date movie?
Yes! You don’t have to concentrate too hard…which lets you focus more on the hand holding. Yes I am a 12 year old. J
