Synopsis: An offbeat romantic comedy about a woman who doesn’t believe true love exists, and the young man who falls for her.
Director: Marc Webb
Writers:Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber
Stars: Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Geoffrey Arend
Serious Jest: (Must Own) What an awesome “non-love story”! Webb effectively utilized a lot of cool artistic effects, but the secrets of this project’s success are the solid story, captivating & witty dialogue, and quirky-but-refreshingly-real characters…and the actors executed it like a perfectly run football play–Touchdown!…yeah, I just did that. But seriously, this is a great date-night movie. I gave it 5 mugs because, frankly, I can’t think of the last RomCom I saw that was better than this (it’s like “The Un-RomCom”), and I would own this movie and watch it again.
CraigMakk: (Must Own) This movie was made to bring women and men together in the theater. Seriously, it is the perfect date movie. JGL is one of the best actors of our generation, and Zooey will rope in any guy who thinks chick flicks are just for chicks. You can probably watch this movie over and over again and get a different perspective each time. You NEED to have this in your collection…you WANT to have this in your collection. Trust us, this is the flick that will remind you why you actually enjoy watching movies with your girl. Her taste isn’t as bad as you think!
