Probably the best romantic comedy ever
Danny Boyle became my favorite director after I watched this film. It
looks like no matter how simple plot may appear, he still can make a
masterpiece of it. The humor is pretty weird and subtle and that is
what's good about it. It's really unusual film. It's not like other
Danny Boyle's works (Tainspotting or Shallow Grave) but has some
similarities. Actually it is even better in it's own way. Ewan McGregor
and Cameron Diaz are probably the best film couple in history of cinema
(or at least it seems like it to me right now). Althau some people may
not understand this film because it's pretty weird and even may appear
banal sometimes but it's not. I think it was in really original way
portrayed how two totally different people can fall in love with each
other. Personally I think this is the best love story ever told..
Finally, a love story that's not boring.
This was a great movie. It had some of the best acting I've seen in a
while(especially McGregor). I really liked the soundtrack too. Especially
the R.E.M song they played when they were captured.
The story goes like this, Robert(McGregor) kidnaps Celine(Diaz) who is the
daughter of his former boss who just fired him. Two angels from
heaven,(Lindo and Hunter) are sent out on a mission to make the two of them
fall in love. It actually seems like Diaz and McGregor do make the perfect
I thought it was funny when the whacked out dentist operated on Ewan. His
reaction was hilarious.
