After the major flop (in my eyes) that was Eat Pray Love, Julia Roberts is all set to star opposite the numerous award winner, Meryl Streep. Deserved? Hmm, I’ll have a think about it.
Julia, have a word.
Meg Ryan/Julia Roberts/her from Grey’s Anatomy and their earnest search for romance is looking even less fashionable then ever, and Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake completely agree. Ignoring Love and Other Drugs in their hurry to take off all their clothes, our two lust-birds instead opt for some No Strings Attached sex in this, Will Gluck’s latest fast-talking comedy. While you’ve undoubtedly seen Friends With Benefits before, it is nevertheless well worth the ever-present sense of deja vu.
Larry Crowne is the second directoral attempt from Tom Hanks, and is a film that you want to love so much that you end up liking it, just a little bit. The onslaught of college-based clichés are almost balanced out by the few genuinely funny comedy moments that pepper the film, and Julia Roberts is at her least annoying in years.
Imagine that all that was once gold has turned to rusty iron. Yeah, it’s bad, but most of us have too many responsibilities and not enough in the bank, to just go swanning off for a year. But say if you were an unhappy, attractive American woman with money to spare who longs to “marvel at something”, then you probably wouldn’t find yourself laying about in your pjs, picking fluff out of your bellybutton. Most likely you would go galavanting off into the sunset. Puh-lease. Come back to the real world, Julia Roberts.
Best For Film And Noticing If People Are Grubby.
Pedro Almodóvar’s new film Los Amantes Pasajeros, or I’m So Excited to us English-speaking jerks, is officially out in cinemas everyone! It’s obviously going to be totally weird because it’s by Pedro Almodóvar. Did you guys see that movie, The Skin I Live In? WHAT WAS THAT? Anyway, this film is more or less The Skin I Live In On a Plane. More importantly, though, the film shares its English title with a very famous song by The Pointer Sisters, which got us thinking: what other films out there have famous songs for titles? Turns out, loads. Because nothing in this wretched world is original.
