Movie Review by Zara
May 6th, 2008

I mainly watched this because Amy Adams was in it and I've been trying to catch up on her work previous to ENCHANTED. The movie also includes some other actors I like (Ethan Embry is great as this guy who sells motivational tapes and books to kids so they can lose weight and do better in school) but nothing can really save it from being a boring, trite and skim-the-surface bullsh*t story about friends getting together before a pair of them decide to get married.

It's been done before and I can't even say that it's been done better. There doesn't seem to be a way to tell this line of a story without it feeling contrived and full of bullsh*t. How many people do we really stay in close contact with after college or even high school? Why is it that in every single one of the movies like this, everyone is still close friends years later and they all still talk to one another and hang out on a regular basis?

James Van Der Big Head is a funny bit character in this film, and Embry is probably my favorite part of the whole thing. I give the movie points for that, but not much else.
