Background Info

I’ll admit, I wasn’t too keen on watching this one, but we had a double movie night and I was already sitting down. Let’s go!

1:20 - I am so glad I don’t read those magazines anymore. 2:22 - This is exactly how Bridesmaids started. 7:24 - I’m curious what the point five of a lover is. 9:16 - “It looked very different on the mannequin.” 14:53 - Bumping into your boss on a night out must be awkward. 22:07 - How is that Captain America? He’s completely different. 26:28 - This film wouldn’t work without Facebook. 27:37 - She has a keyboard imprinted on her face, how have they done that? 33:30 - Assuming he is her future boyfriend, and that is a safe bet, it’s weird that he’s going to know all about her exes. 36:32 - “Well, he clearly doesn’t understand what Facebook is for.” 40:08 - Two of her exes live next door to each other? Small world! 41:19 - That is the worst English accent ever. I love it. 43:06 - My Fair Lady reference is the best bit of the film so far. 47:41 - “It just feels like this quest you’re on is a little nuts.” Indeed so. 51:21 - Segways! 52:04 - “Looking at somebody’s playlist is like reading their diary.” 1:00:31 - “Just because it’s dark doesn’t mean you have to whisper.” 1:09:18 - Why does being married mean you know about fonts? 1:12:22 - She is completely irrational and I want to punch her in the face. 1:18:39 - Is it wrong that I am still pondering how she did that hair extension trick. I don’t know much about hair. 1:24:28 - Ah, just what I needed to turn this film around… a wedding. 1:29:00 - Her little sculptures. God, what does she see in that guy? 1:34:35 - Bit of Honda product placement there. 1:37:17 - Well, I like that, it’s the first rational thing she’s said in ages, 1:38:28 - She’s ruined his show! That’s not romantic, that’s evil. 1:41:51 - That’s Natasha Bedingfield again, isn’t it! Is she actually employed by Hollywood?

Conclusions

Oh how I hated it. Granted, I wasn’t exactly coming into it expecting great things but it was worse than I could have imagined. It was very similar to Bad Teacher, in respect of the fact that the lead character was completely hideous, so that I didn’t think she deserved the happy ending. I didn’t particularly want to watch her get it. There were just two redeeming moments, one with the My Fair Lady Mention - and Martin Freeman was fun - and the moment she pondered whether she shouldn’t have just waited in his apartment. A fabulous bit of self-awareness, that the rest of the film was sadly lacking.
