Loved this full of belly laughs, funny quotable moments, and a couple tear jerkers too. Perfect movie for the girls or to watch with your honey! Highly recommend
Low raters missed the point. Clever, hilarious, progressive. (by xxxkittykatxxx)
This movie is SUPPOSED to look bad. It is a PARODY. It is a brilliant take on the cliche of classic romantic comedies from the point of view of a non-traditional lead. Just give it a try, if you don't take yourself too seriously you'll love it.
Critics and haters are clearly delusional (by garenburkus)
This movie was hilarious, almost everyone in the theatre was laughing out loud every 10 minutes. I was worried it would follow suit of some movies they rush together and try and sell around holidays but this once has a bridesmaids level comedic quality to it. Every scene has a quick witted joke and the whole movie has a large variety of comedic styles in it. So many things were unexpected and genius in this movie, it's honestly sad to see it have anything lower than 9 on here. Critics are snobs we all been knew - see it for yourself and your gunna have a great day. I promise :
Originality meets a charming cast (by saherodeh-10488)
If you're here for a few good laughs, then this movie will give you just that. The plot is very clever and the jokes keeps you chuckling throughout. The fact that they're hating on romantic comedies and then pretending to be in one when the film is actually a romantic comedy itself was very ironic. Rebel Wilson is just a fantastic actor; I can't think of anyone else more fit for the role. She's very talented. In the same way, the rest of the cast were charming. I'm glad I got to watch this movie the first night of its release. Watch it, it'll be funny; if not, at least <more>
Fun time, Laugh out loud moments and throughly enjoyable! (by marykfinn)
This was a surprising funny, good time movie. I went to see it opening night and the theater was full and everyone was laughing out loud and hard, many times. I cannot remember the last time I genuinely laughed out loud for a long time, many times during a movie. Maybe you have to be a romantic comedy buff to get all the jokes. There are so many rom-com references that are just hilarious. And the movie is also sweet and endearing as well. A fun, light, clever and thoroughly enjoyable time at the movies.
Refreshing take on romantic comedies (by iagardner)
Took the girlfriend to go see this on Valentine's Day. Glad I did! We both enjoyed it. Great cast and great acting, great soundtrack. Don't understand the people hating on this film or the fat jokes. No such thing. Being a comedian means you're able to make fun of yourself. Don't take yourself too seriously. I found the movie hilarious and it's not just for women. Men will find this movie enjoyable as well. Will I buy it when it comes out? Probably not. But definitely worth a 3 night movie rental. Rebel Wilson deserves more leading roles like this. Devine is great. Go see <more>
The first romantic comedy I actually liked (by rachel-05363)
I personally hate romcoms, just like her. I found this movie hilarious, and even a little inspirational...
Perfect Valentine's Movie! (by SeleneOliver)
Funny, Witty, and quite Beguiling ; My date was hesitant to see "that type of movie" however I found him laughing on more than one occasion! I enjoyed it, from the music, to the sets, to the outlandish but loveable to some extent relatable characters! I will definitely be watching this movie again in the near future with the girls! The message at the end was the perfect cherry on top!
Great flick! (by guiltypleasure)
So much fun! I'm an Gen Xer who saw this with a teen girl and a boomer male a film critic no less, not an easy sell . I would think that you'd need to be from the generation that actually saw Julia Robert's romcoms such as My Best Friend's Wedding and Pretty Woman and it certainly helps to have seen them first IMO to really appreciate this spoof of outdated messages and stereotypes conveyed in these films, but we all enjoyed it..a few jokes fell flat but with so many laugh-out-loud moments it was barely noticeable. The film even got applause from the audience <more>
afterwards.Rebel Wilson can carry a film, which is nice to see. Betty Gilpin of GLOW is great as her transformed work bff and Liam Helmsworth, much like Chris Pines, does well cutting his comedic chops mocking the hunky leading man. But it's Brandon Scott Jones who's the scene-stealer as the side-kick bff who apparently has no job or life, allowing him to magically appear to lend advice or serve as silly montage material. I recommend this film to anyone who likes, but also likes to laugh at, the silliness of the hollywood ending.
