Review: The Big Wedding

The Big Wedding
I've seen my fair share of wedding movies over the years but the damn things all melt into one in my head afterwards. Once you've established your wacky line-up of one-note characters, the screenplay practically writes itself. Having forced myself to sit through marital comedy The Big Wedding, I thought I'd take a similar approach with my review and just write an exhaustive list of every single wedding cliché I spotted. That's the bare minimum, but in this genre, the bare minimum is all you need.

New Year's Eve
New Year's Eve; the one night of the year when you feel obliged to have fun, but if truth be told, you usually can't be arsed. Fittingly, that's how Garry Marshall's follow-up to Valentine's Day makes you feel.

Killers trailer aka Two Lousy Shitheads In A Hitman Comedy
Who needs Mr. And Mrs. Smith when you've got Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher? I literally couldn't have screen-capped this any better. "DURRRRR!" I hope she blows her own head off.

Review: The Ugly Truth

The Ugly Truth
Put down that well-thumbed copy of Cosmo, gentlemen: here we have a rom-com that finally promises to preach 'the truth' about love. Thank goodness! It's a well-known fact that, until Richard Curtis invented the romantic comedy, men and women didn't have the first clue how to pro-create - they basically just walked around with th...

Review: 27 Dresses

27 Dresses
Romantic comedies like 27 Dresses are the filmic equivalents of fashion magazines that devote whole pages to pictures of pretty people wearing expensive outfits - the star and the clothes are the real draw here, the movie itself is almost an afterthought. You may or may not care that Katherine Heigl plays a perennial bridesmaid ...

Review: Knocked Up

Knocked Up
Comedy is the most fickle of genres - so many comedians have been called the Next Big Thing� only to be outed as one trick ponies a few films down the line. There's a constant shift in comedy that swirls round every few years and it looks like 2007 is a time for change; Ben Stiller is looking more like a monkey than ever; Will...

The Ringer
It's Saturday night, you've got an hour or so to kill before you go out; what else are you going to do but crack open a few beers and watch the Disabled Commonwealth Games? I assumed that watching disabled competitors would humble my able ass - these guys have no use of their legs/arms/eyes [delete as applicable] and yet they s...
