Background Info

Mr C seems to think that I have a little bit of a crush on Gerard Butler, and I am not so sure. I did like him in the other film we saw, but that is the complete opposite end of the spectrum to this - which is your basic romantic comedy.

00:01:04 - That’s a lot of smoke. 00:01:49 - Not a fan of the font of the credits. Hard to read. 00:03:07 - A chase scene with stilts! I approve. 00:06:50 - Why is the ladies bathroom all pink? Boo. 00:09:33 - What are they eating? It’s drippy and disgusting. 00:14:56 - Uh, that’s three gross things already this film. It’s gonna be a long two hours! 00:16:22 - Woah, deleting stuff off her Tivo… now that is proper evil. 00:20:23 - Jimmy’s bathroom is pink too! 00:22:43 - I still think she should be called Rachel. I get she’s not Rachel off of Friends, but Nicole just doesn’t fit. 00:25:36 - “As much as it pains me to say it…” big, beaming smile. 00:27:35 - The film is brilliant! 00:34:31 - I want a lucky letter. I’m going to go with J. 00:40:01 - There’s some excellent music in this film. **00:43:46 - I don’t think I could sleep with my hand cuffed upward. Pins and needles ahoy! **00:50:09 - I like her running about with no shoes on. 00:52:21 - Gerard has a brilliant evil laugh. 00:57:35 - You can’t take on a massive SUV in a little car like that. Or in any car really. 01:02:16 - They don’t have a member called John. They should have tried Dave. Everyone knows someone called Dave. 01:10:20 - I like the gift of nothing. 01:12:48 - Her hair suddenly looks a whole lot blonder. What happened? 01:19:47 - “I quit by getting myself fired.”** **01:21:27 - He just got INTO bed with shoes on. Argh. 01:33:37 - People get violent when there’s free money flying about. 01:37:48 - Heels are not good for sneaking around in.** **01:42:31 - I’d forgotten about Stuart! 01:46:26 - I like people with unconventional relationships.

Conclusions

Once again, I wasn’t expecting much and was completely surprised by what I saw. Yes, it was the standard rom-com, and yes they did start out hating each other and ended up loving each other but I was very impressed by the ratio of comedy to romance. I couldn’t stop laughing for ten minutes at a time. Loved it.
