Kind of a chick flick, but I saw the trailers on ABC Family while watching Grounded For Life, and it looked like a funny movie with a unique premise. Went to see it with the girlfriend Saturday night, and it did live up to my expectations. Emma Stone could be huge before long, and I think my favorite characters were her parents, played by Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson. They didn't get a ton of screen time, but I laughed at just about everything they said.
It's more of a teen flick than a chick flick (but I guess you could argue that's two sides of the same coin). Emma Stone, Patricia Clarkson, and Stanley Tucci are indeed the best things in the movie. I thought the movie itself was all right overall, but Stone will be a big star; she is reportedly going to be Mary Jane Watson in the new Spider-Man reboot.
Agreed. Not what I expected at all, but perfectly great as far as I was concerned. I have a huge man crush on Russell Crowe though, so I am surely biased. A wonderful appearance by Max Von Sydow, and, as noted Prince/King John was indeed great.
