Cast & Credits
A movie should be called superficial unless it doesn't leave any impressions. But what to do when a superficial movie itself leaves a lasting impression? Well, then it can't be called superficial anymore.
No matter how many years are passing, I can still remember the movie's plot and many funny scenes. Being able to recall a movie means a lot nowadays as one tend to forget a movie's plot quickly. Sometimes, one forget it after a day.
You might wonder what kind of things I still can't forget:
For instance, the funny voice of the female main actor is something unforgettable. The voice matched her character well as she was quirky and impulsive. Watching her acting was pure entertainment as you wondered: Is she in real life that crazy and funny as well?
Every time I see her picture somewhere I can't stop laughing as she will always remain as that crazy, funny, impulsive, naive and quirky journalist to me.
It seemed like as if the role was written for her and not the other way round. There might be some exaggerated scenes but even those scenes were funny.
The male lead also left a lasting impression, in short: Great acting, hot&cool; as always, managed to show various sides of his character.
Even though most of the movies show characters in a superficial way, this time it was different. Both main characters showed more profundity than other movie characters.
Why? Well, because after watching the movie I wasn't able to describe those characters with only three adjectives.
Apart from the characters, the plot was entertaining as well. Some twists and turns might be not that understanding.
But hey, if one want to watch something reasonable, the last thing you should see is a romantic comedy, right?
Even though this movie was rather comedy like than romantic, there was nothing missing.
Moreover, this movie served its purpose: It was entertaining/amusing.
And this adjective should say more than 1000 words.
So in short: Don't miss this movie!
