Movie Review Monday: A Day Late

Definitely, Maybe

I am giving this a 5 star rating. I’m not saying this is an epic film, but this was just a great movie to watch by yourself or with pretty much anyone. There wasn’t any bad language and no sex scenes, which I can always do without, so it was good. The premise of the movie is a little girl’s parents are getting divorced and she asks her Dad why they even fell in love in the first place, and why they were out of love now. He replies that it is complicated and she demands to know the story, so he tells her about his past relationships, but he doesn’t tell her which one of the women in the movie is her mom and she spends the movie trying to figure out who it is through his story of love and loss. It was just a really cool movie and I thought it was not very chick-flicky at all. I definitely recommend this movie, and it’s even worth paying the full outrageous Blockbuster rental fee. Plus, I have a strange love of Ryan Reynolds. I always thought he was a doofus and then I dated a guy who looked a lot like him (not as ripped, don't you worry) and realized that he too was a doofus, but I just have an affection for him. He plays a good "average joe".

That looks like a good one. I'll have to check it out. :)

I liked him better in Chaos Theory. I've had a crush since Two Guys, A Girl and A Pizza Place (which i am STILL not over that they cancelled the funniest show on television and why isn't it on DVD? HUH ABC! WHY?)

If one cannot predict who he ends up with in the first 30 minutes...well...I'm going to be nice and say watch Chaos Theory.

Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling and me...a wonderful Ryan Samich.

My sister recently saw that movie and is all about it. I've added it to the netflix queue for one of my thursday sushi/white wine/girly movie nights. :-)
