Movie Review - License to Wed

License to Wed - four thumbs down

I knew when I requested it from NetFlix that it was a risk, but I had no idea how big. With Robin Williams, Mandy Moore & John Krasinski (from The Office) I figurd it would at least be worth a few laughs and mildly entertaining.

Wrong!

We actually turned it off. The introduction of extremely creepy fake twins was just more than we could bear.

Four thumbs down. I have got to start being more careful about what I take risks on - between this and The Ex, I'm starting to feel like I'm wasting my Netflix membership.

On a happier note, I saw a commerical for Bucket List today and I'm trying not to look forward to it's DVD release. I've found the lower my expectations, the easier it is to exceed them. However since I have had a 'bucket list' since I can remember, I do love the idea of the movie. (FYI, I'm stealing the phrase so don't be surprised when I start throwing it around) I think Jack Nicholson has great charism and after '10 Items or Less' I'm a closet Morgan Freeman fan - so we shall see.

yeah, I had a similar reaction to this film too.

surprising decent was a movie called "unhitched."
