A couple weeks ago I saw Leap Year.
Oh how I wanted to love this movie....which is automatically part of the problem because my expectations were way too high. With this movie, the fact that I had expectations at all was a straight path to disappointment. It had all the makings of a good movie:
- Amy Adams
- Hot guy
And yet it sucked. So sad. My best advice: if you are going to write a workaholic/control freak heroine, at least let us see a few of her weaknesses so that we like her.
And then I saw When in Rome.
Which didn't suck as bad as I expected it to. :) This one also had all the makings of a good movie:
- Veronica Mars
- Josh Duhamel
Again, control freak workaholic heroine. The difference though was that they did let us see her vulnerabilities and weaknesses.
The problem with this one was the clumsiness of all the characters--which is always a pet peeve of mine. How many trees did Josh run into? Stupid!
