Sometimes people read good books and then decide to make movies out of them. And a lot of the time the movies are crappy...like really awful, like the fact that it's based on a popular book is going to make the movie people a billion dollars without really even trying.
(P.S. I Love You)
(The DaVinci Code - then Angels & Demons)
So, let's hope this one goes a little bit better.
So far Rachel McAdams has a pretty good track record.
But she dyed her hair pink and broke up with Ryan Gosling so obviously she's not all that brilliant...and therefore can't be trusted anymore.
BUT. Eric Bana is just...well, he's very good looking.
He's done some not so good things.
(The Other Boleyn Girl)
But, he's also done some pretty fabulous things.
But - so far this movie looks AMAZING. The trailer makes me want to cry already and I'm hoping this is going to be one of those chick flicks where I get a good cry in but still feel happy when I leave the theater.
(Marley and Me)
Not one where I want to lie in bed all afternoon and feel depressed.
(Life is Beautiful)
I KNOW I'll like the characters...they're just so pretty. But who knows if they have anything halfway decent written on their million dollar scripts or were having a (soon to be discovered) problem with drug addiction during filming.
I guess we will see on August 14th. Emmy - I KNOW you hate chick flicks, but that's only because they make you blubber, so you should come with me...you can bring your mom (and I'll bring mine).
