I will admit that I watched this one on Hulu with commercials and having to reload the page every 15 minutes or so. I also had my son crawling around. Not sure if those things may have had an effect on my judgement but ah what was all the hype about? Technique? Style? I was bored and uninspired. There were good looking people in the movie and the cinematography was good. Bah
Gonna give it 2 stars b/c it wasn't awful but certainly not a good one in my eyes.
I totally enjoyed this film. There were some really funny moments. It was so refreshing to see a female cast and a comedy without penis jokes. I kind of even want to watch it again(one eyebrow raised). The story is about a woman at her lowest whose best friend get's engaged and while preparing for the wedding she bumps heads with her best friends new best friend. I really enjoyed it. I laughed a lot which says a lot for me. I've never seen an all female comedy before this one. I think they should do this more. You should totally watch it if you have been trying to decide if you should or not. I Really worth the watch! I give it 4 stars.

Every now and then I see an actor or actress and decide to check out more of their work after seeing them in movies or shows without knowing they were in them. You know you watch a movie and your like who's that guy or lady and then you watch another movie and see them again and you think they are up and coming and kind of talented. So, I want to review Omari Hardwick. First time I saw him was in Next Day Air the next thing I saw him in was Linewatch. After that is was like he is all over the place. Yea yea I think he is handsome but I also think he has talent. I think of him like Michael Jai White but with much better acting chops. I am waiting to see him get more roles that are really out of character for him. He was in an episode of Chase (is that the name of it?) and I was like here he is again playing the hard guy. In I Will Follow he had a much softer role although he was certainly the muscular hunk but it was nice to see him (well any black actor for that matter) playing the nice guy in a film. For Colored Girls has been the one role to make me say okay now I like this guy. I hope he gets more work. What do you think?

It's like I'm right there with Paul Giamatti as he decides whether or not to pick a script. Him and Philip Seymour Hoffman. This movie Win Win Paul Giamatti plays a high school wrestling coach and lawyer who meets the grandson of one of his clients. The grandson coincidentally turns out to be a great wrestler. The film takes a few turns here and there as Giamatti's character get's caught in a lie and the boy's mother comes into the picture. This isn't his best work but it is a sweet film. It's not a comedy. It's a sort of feel good drama. I def. recommend it with 3 1/2 stars.
