The world of dating is examined and torn apart in this film and not for the better of the viewer or the characters. The entire movie is spent showing what the women in the film are doing wrong, or how they are wronging others, and everyone comes across as a needy, desperate, and pathetic being. This is not a feel-good movie for the single girl or guy as it does not promote understanding one’s self but instead how to play a game with one another and hope you are the “exception, not the rule”.
If you are looking for a light-hearted romantic comedy that will make you smile and feel good walking out of the theatre, New In Town delivers. The film has a great deal of personality and offers the viewer laughs, a possible cry, and may even make you cheer.
The overall premise of Bride Wars may appear to be funny but the actual movie given to the viewer is anything but satisfying. There is no real comedy or level of sentiment to the story and it fails to enthrall or delight the viewer with the characters antics. Instead, you get a large amount of whining and screaming from the women and passive aggressive men who are merely there as props who occasionally say something but no one is really listening.
If it were not for the subpar performances, ridiculous story, cheap thrills, and poor special effects, The Unborn may have been a decent film. Then again, that is just about everything you expect from a film like this, and it fails on every level.
Paul Blart: Mall Cop is not terrible, but not great either. You will laugh at times, some brought on by the actual comedy and others for its failure.
