Plot: An American intern at U.K. Vogue helps her friends find love. Runtime: 90 mins Release Date: 25 Apr 2007
This movie had its US premiere last night at Outfest. I was at the screening and was enchanted with everything about this movie. It's an homage to romantic comedies that knows that a romantic comedy isn't anything like real life. The performances, including actors from TV's Heroes and Brothers & Sisters, are great. The script, by the director best known for "Truth or Dare", is funny and charming. This is definitely the best movie I've seen so far at Outfest this year. It may even be the best movie I've ever seen at Outfest, ever!If you like Notting Hill, Four <more>
Weddings & A Funeral or any other romantic comedy of that style, you'll definitely enjoy this little gem as well.
If you loved Clueless and remember the girl that was made over, Brittany Murhpy, you will love her all over again in this absolutely first-rate movie. The promise Murphy showed in Clueless is more than realized here as she is the pivotal character around which all action navigates and the other characters gravitate. London is the setting, a city a college buddy of mine calls the most civilized place on Earth and where he retired years ago. This film shows London at its best and you can hardly wait to get off your seat and book passage to that great urban center where young, sophisticated, <more>
gorgeous, talented people are remaking the world in their own way and which is shown so well in this film. The story is fresh and enchanting and the handsome, beautiful people who populate it are a delight to behold, each more wonderful than the last.
Because1. It stars the very pretty Santiago Cabrera who looks just wrong without a beard and moustache and the gorgeous and lost-too-soon Brittany Murphy2. It's a story about a gay best friend which won't make you cringe, and actually puts him and his needs and his romance ahead of the female lead's3. Tango!4. Catherine Tate is hilarious, and her double act with Stephanie Beacham is a scream5. It uses modern London as a backdrop very nicely please to be excusing the blatant b*llsh*t about how Heathrow and registry office marriages work 6. It includes the most accurate <more>
description of the stages of a relationship I've ever heard7. It's funny enough to make you pee8. It's just lovely
I saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend. I picked the movie and my fiancé gave me some grief over it while we waited to go in, but he ended up loving it!! Brittany Murphy is very entertaining, and the entire cast is enthralling. This is a very cute and funny movie. It pokes fun at itself and the one-liners just keep coming. The cameo appearances by Orlando Bloom and Gwyneth Paltro are brief, so don't go just for the glimpse of a favorite actor/actress, but they do add the the appeal of the film. The entire theater was laughing throughout the movie. I <more>
rank this movie up with Love, Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral.
Love and Other Disasters is not a typical romantic comedy, primarily as it pokes fun at the various aspects of the genre - predictable plot, grand romantic finale, happy coincidences etc. It is a light-hearted tongue in cheek movie that has all the spunk of a good romantic comedy with enough self-effacing genre-specific humor to keep it fresh and non-cloyingly sweet.Other viewers have noted that Brittany Murphy is stiff and unbelievable, and that other characters are overly dramatic. But as the film draws attention to its very fictitious, theatrical nature, the characters fall into place as <more>
humorous fabricated, sensationalized versions of human nature in this light satire.Also worth noting is the film's lovely approach towards homosexuality. Admittedly Peter's love life is a side-line plot, but what is shown has a ring of sincerity to it and avoids sensationalizing or stereotyping homosexual characters. While this movie is unlikely to win any Oscars, it is definitely one of the best romantic comedies I've seen.
Sometimes you just want a good laugh (by nell1125)
Can you say "Feel Good!" This is a really charming film. A friend invited me to a screening in San Francisco and I didn't know what to expect. Gorgeous shots of London, super witty, fast dialogue, cool music throughout, great performances and surprising cameos throughout. I wasn't too familiar with Brittany Murphy before but she's adorable in this film. The English gal who plays her best friend is hilarious. To me, the film is along the lines of Love Actually. There's room for all kinds of films and sometimes you want realistic drama, documentary and so on. But <more>
there's also a time for kicking back and having a laugh. So if you're looking for intelligent, light entertainment, see this film!
Just watched this as part of the opening night gala of the London Lesbian and Gay Film Festival. Lived up to all my expectations. A fun, funny romantic comedy with dialogue thats stylish not just stylized and a great cast. Brittany Murphy and Matthew Rhys are especially good, and Catherine Tate gave a performance that left me wondering why she confines herself to catchphrases on her show. Also, as was pointed out in the introduction on the night, this is a movie that shows a London closer to the one I actually live in though the director, Alek Keshishian, did point out he himself had lived <more>
in London for ten years! . A great way to start the festival. Deserves a wide audience.
Don't bother yourself about those homophobic comments that you may see elsewhere and here - only if you are so yourself.Otherwise just lean back, you will get good entertainment, laughs and thoughts. It is just good as it is.The London scenes - if you like London will remind you of the spectacular places of the city, if not yet visited you may get the inclination from the film.Also, if you are not homophobic enough to hate a plot where eventually love means sometimes man loving woman, but just in case it is not covering mankind totally other options are also presented - go for the movie, <more>
probably you will not regret it. Love is free, anyway.
Smart, funny, London love story with a gay focus (by brianu2)
I think you've got to be in the right mindset for this one but if you're prepared to suspend your disbelief you can have a great time. If you like Ugly Betty then this is for you. But if you go in expecting War & Peace you're going to be disappointed. The clothes are great and there are some great performances from the likes of Dawn French and Catherine Tate. There are plenty of laughs and some brilliantly observed portraits of London types. Brittany Murphy is a luminous presence and although you get the message that she wants to channel Audrey Hepburn she sort of pulls it <more>
off. It's a step up from Love, Actually and Notting Hill and a lot more fun. Could the prominence of a gay story line be what seems to annoy some of the other reviewers here?
