Definitely, Maybe

   25 February 2008, terribly early in the morning

I watched the romantic comedy Definitely, Maybe last night with Carvill and Limin. The movie is about a dad, Ryan Reynolds, explaining to his daughter, the little girl from Little Miss Sunshine, how he met his (soon to be ex) wife. The big gimmick in the movie is that he won’t tell his daughter which of the many women that appear in the story is her mother. The movie is basically a series of long flashbacks. The scenes that don’t work well in the film are those set in the present, between Reynolds and the little girl. I’m not quite sure how you could fix them though. Rachael Weisz was in the movie — meow. (There are actually several familiar faces in the film.) Definitely, Maybe was enjoyable enough, which is more than I can say for most romantic comedies I’ve seen.

It feels good to be watching so many films again.

  1. I really liked this movie. I didn’t actually see any major problems with it on the first viewing. And I cried like 3 times, but I am a total sap.

    I thought it was a good look at how relationships can just be a series of selfish screwups and misunderstandings.

  2. The little girl is too precocious. I don’t know, that’s really the only thing that bugged me. I really liked all the early 90s music. That was awesome.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

 
Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
