Service me bitch!
A romantic comedy with a guy's perspective
I have to start by saying that I am not a huge fan of "chick flicks"
but I actually really liked this one! I thought this had a lot of humor
and it wasn't really cheesy humor, it was actually funny.
I saw this at a screening for theater managers and at first I wasn't
even going to go. I wasn't expecting much from it, it just looked like
another rip off of a hundred other romantic comedies. I was very
surprised that that I liked it the entire way through and it kept my
interest the whole time! Although I enjoyed the movie, it was not an
original idea. The one thing I did really enjoy about it was that this
wasn't a sad girl trying to get the guy like many other movies like
this are, it was shown through the guy's perspective which isn't quite
as over done.
I won't give out any details you don't already see in the trailer for
the movie: Patrick Dempsy's character is great with women and his best
friend is a successful intelligent woman. She goes to Scotland on
business and Patrick's character realizes he has actually fallen in
love with her now that shes gone. She comes back and he is ready to
profess his love but there's one problem: she met someone else and is
getting married! So now he is her "maid of honor" and has to try and
stop the wedding. Like I said, not really an original idea but it is
MUCH funnier and more interesting than most of the romantic comedies I
have seen. Especially with him being maid of honor, its really
If you are looking for an original movie that hasn't been done before
then this is not for you. But if you enjoy romantic comedies and want a
good laugh this one is definitely worth seeing. I watched it in a group
of about half and half for men and woman and 90% of the people I talked
to enjoyed it. I would see it again and I would definitely recommend it
to anyone, even if you don't like "chick flicks"!
