Catchy songs and hilarious lyrics are the major plus in the movie. A simple and refreshing story, this plot has penny plain dialogues and no cheesy lines. These dialogues have a great meaning and its warming to see that it can be established without any ostentatious gimmicks on screen. Drew Barrymore as Julia, is adorable and Adam Sandler is simply a delight. Thier chemistry on screen at many instances give off sparks. With an effortless plot and light entertainment, this movie gives the same upbeat feelings of the order of Definitely Maybe, with half the complexity.
Although the movie doesn’t have many potholes, the story is both the positive and the negative. Since the story isn’t twisted, the movie becomes predictable and ends up a bore for story oriented eyes. The movie doesn’t have a captivating agenda which makes it stand out in the comedies and come off as a precipitate.
What’s my Point?
At wit’s end, this movie does justice to the relaxing lovey dovey folk. Although the story is modest, the movie is definitely something to keep for a rainy day to cheer up.
