Did You Know?
One of the songs heard in the movie is Frankie Valli's Moody's Mood for Love. Joseph Leo Bwarie (Mailroom Danny) has played Valli ans sang this song in the stage play of Jersey Boys.
Incorrectly regarded as goofs:
Julia never left to go to San Francisco. This can be heard when she calls Kara on the phone and says that she is still in LA.
That's what I'm doing here. Because apparently everyone and their mother felt that way but nobody had the guts to tell me. And now, I'm left with some stupid ring and an empty closet and an ache in my gut the size of Texas because nobody told me.
Sickened by Syrup Overdose
I was the classic husband dragged to see this on Valentine's Day
weekend as a goodwill gesture. It was every bit as bad as could be
possibly imagined. Half of Hollywood's A List star as vacuous
stereotypes, moronically obsessed with the holiday in question. This
despite the fact they are all living millionaire lifestyles, with
perfect tans and the whitest of teeth. It's Love Actually, without a
sense of humour or any depth whatsoever. No- one and nothing is
remotely realistic – every storyline has a trite and convenient
resolution and none is convincing or interesting. There is a perfect
and unlikely ratio of ethnicities and sexualities. The sex trade is
entirely trivialised and sanitised. No-one stays upset about
relationship breakdowns for more than one scene. People break into
spontaneous dance sequences in which everyone knows the pre-rehearsed
moves but the film doesn't have the conviction to show it for more than
3 seconds… Just utter pointless and patronising bilge…
