Movie Review by Denise
April 18th, 2011

Snoozefestorama

I don't understand how a film that has the adorable and funny butterscotch stallion (Owen Wilson), the equally adorable and appealing Reese Witherspoon, and everyone's favorite, Paul Rudd, could be so boring. I was hopeful in the beginning; Witherspoon was believable as a softball player and her natural charm and glow showed through, despite Brooks's best efforts at blocking them completely. Then it goes downhill.

Even Jack Nicholson, who I generally cannot stand, was just kind of there. I don't know if the goal was to reign him in to the point of zero charisma, but that's what happened.

The overly sappy (and, I suspect, really freaking expensive since it was Hans Zimmer) music cues made me think I should be feeling something that I just wasn't, every funny line was used in the trailer ("I broke a lamp"), and not one relationship was developed enough for me to care about. And don't get me started on the continuity problems.
