The movie "Babies" was also released Mother's Day, 2010. This ain't Babies. If you called your mom
or visited and managed to say and do kind things, as usual, you might not get this movie. In fact you might want to reach out and slap these people. They say (and do) the damnedest things. Couldn't they think first? On the other hand, if the word dysfunctional brings a smile to your face this is a wonderfully realistic script. It must be hard to write, direct (Nicole Holofcener), perform, and edit the kind of faux pas and foibles that make up real life - with the objective of getting people to pay to see it. I really enjoyed watching this, but then I also like Cops on Saturday night. Maybe the attraction is the comfort in knowing that at least we didn't do that! Mary (Amanda Peet) is the only glamorous one in this cast, who otherwise look about as unfortunate and realistic as the things they say. You could probably take your fifteen year old daughter to this.
Maybe I wasn't in the mood. There were people there for the earlybird on a Sunday and even the guys
were laughing. After learning that Juliet (Amanda Seyfried) was a "fact-checker" for the New Yorker magazine and seeing her determine with her cellphone that the famous V-Day kiss in Times Square was spontaneous and romantic I drifted off. I checked some facts myself - yes, there are 'fact-checkers,' but the photographer says the famous sailor was kissing every woman he could find, there is internet service in Italy, and gas costs seven dollars a gallon there this spring. Who would go on this quest in this way in this century? While the Tuscan scenery is fine and there are virtually no non-beautiful people I just can't see riding a dusty SUV on unpaved roads pretending there is no easier way. This should have been set in the thirties. If you do want a silent party-background DVD, try Into the Blue (2005 - with Jessica Alba) - the scenery is wonderful and the location aint bad.
You would think that was a nickname at best, but no one calls her anything else. This is a modern
movie in black and white that really looks authentic. It seemed to me more suspense or drama than comedy. There is an aspect of how the characters relate that really stood out then and makes me want to see this movie again.
Lots of people there for the first show and they laughed, but I was kinda bored. Pretty much the
same old silliness. Jennifer Aniston and Jamie Fox are good. The outtakes at the end are pretty cool, too. It did make me think about work. Not exactly a family movie.
