User Review

What a nice movie… and such a poor rating…

Rating: 10/10


Well, ask me why this movie has such a poor rating. Or maybe don't ask
me, because I have no answer. The movie is just great. The acting is
perfect for this script, DeNiro and Penn are so funny and also serious
when is needed. Why such a poor rating ? Maybe because people are not
so funny as they were once. For the people of our days a comedy is
something like Scary Movie or a movie that makes you laugh every minute
because of something stupid. But "We're No Angels" is funny, is
romantic, is serious, is educative, is simply GREAT MOVIE. You have to
watch it with an innocent eye, you must enjoy the movie. Don't look at
it with a critical eye. That's not good for the entertainment. Just
watch it to relax and to feel good. It deserves it. And you also
deserve it.
