Will her yeast intolerance keep them apart?
|Never met a holiday he didn’t like to act in
|The box office will go on…|
It’s such a perfect Valentine’s Day movie it may as well have been produced in an emotional manipulation lab.
Sony has made a film with a seasonal release in mind for maximum profit.
They are producing for those who are more likely to go out of their way to see something specific simply because it is Valentine’s Day. This is the same audience that took their kids to watch Fred Claus at Christmas because it was Christmas and Hop at Easter because it was Easter. This is akin to child abuse.
Watching a terrifying film and scaring yourself into therapy is a rite of passage, part and parcel of growing up, plus there are far fewer ways to celebrate this particular holiday other then dressing as a slutty clown. Christmas has a lot more going on, the meal, the presents and the alcohol-fueled game of scrabble ending in confessions of dark family secrets.
Or at least a good film.
Why go to the cinema to watch trash to increase your serotonin for each other?
Why not just get some fizzy wine in and rent out The Princess Bride, and be done with it.
I write this having seen neither, but I have experience and arrogance on my side.
I assume Pine and Hardy use their CIA technology irresponsibly, never fill out the right paper work, millions of Americans tax dollars are wasted on surveillance gear and thermal imagining technology and there’s some kind of chase scene at the end. But at least they’ll do the action/comedy by numbers with real charisma.
