Starring: Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds, Malin Akerman, Craig T. Nelson
Director: Anne Fletcher
This is one of those romantic comedies that may not appeal to everybody. I very much enjoyed it even though I would prefer to wait for the DVD! Why? Because of two or more badly cut scenes here in the movies! Not sure if was done only by the censors here in Singapore or globally but there were horribly cut scenes in the screening here at Cathay cinemas.
Sandra Bullock portrayed here character as a high powered editor very well indeed in my opinion, and Ryan Reynolds was an excellent choice as her ‘Assistant’. It is still a little hard for me to envision the ex-star of ‘Two guys a girl and a Pizza Place’ in the role of ‘The Green Lantern” even though he has quite a nice bod.
The chemistry of the pair is lukewarm at best, but works well in this movie because of the characters they play. It is melodramtic in parts or even downright corny in some but hey! It’s a comedy!
I will definitely keep a copy of the DVD for my collection once it’s released….for now I’m looking forward to watching ‘The Ugly Truth’ starring Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl next.
