The Vow Review


Weak
Inspired by a true story, this film is watchable mainly because of the extraordinary events, which are genuinely involving and moving. Although typically, Hollywood has ramped up the emotions while avoiding subtlety at all costs.

Goofy recording engineer Leo (Tatum) and adorable artist Paige (McAdams) had a cute romance, quirky wedding and four happy years together before a car crash changed everything. Leo only has minor injuries, but Paige has lost some five years of memories. Crucially, she has no idea who Leo is. And she doesn't remember turning her back on her law course, smirking fiance (Speedman) and wealthy parents (Lange and Neill). They're all she remembers now, so Leo tries to remind her of who she became after she left them behind. If they'll let him.

Drew Barrymore is set to direct new romantic comedy 'How to Be Single'.

The 36-year-old actress - who is currently dating art consultant Will Kopelman - is to produce the project, which is believed to have a similar feel to the likes of 'He's Just Not That In To You' and 'Valentine's Day', alongside Nancy Juvonen.

While no stars have yet be announced for 'How to Be Single', the movie is expected to feature a large ensemble cast - in the same style of 'Valentine's Day', which featured Ashton Kutcher, Julia Roberts and Jessica Alba - and document a multi-layered story about the love lives of a group of New Yorkers over a 10-year period.

He's Just Not That Into You Review


Terrible
Women are pathetic -- at least, that's the message being preached by a recent rash of horribly misguided motion pictures. In Sex and the City, they're depicted as materialistic sluts who use their fading feminine wiles to weasel all manner of money-based goodies out of their gullible meat puppets. In Mamma Mia!, we experience fading beauty bedeviled by off-key singing and gloppy green-screen romanticism. But both of those films are feminist manifestos when compared to the gender equity awfulness of He's Just Not That Into You. Any film "loosely" based on a baffling self-help tome is already asking for trouble, but once gyno-nation gets a whiff of this effort's "ladies are losers" lament, the fashionable gloves are bound to come off.

Our story centers around Gigi (Ginnifer Goodwin), a copywriter for a spices catalog. Unlucky in love, she seeks advice from her equally ineffectual coworkers Janine (Jennifer Connelly) and Beth (Jennifer Aniston). The former is in a sexless marriage with her music industry rep hubby Ben (Bradley Cooper) who happens to be bedding a wannabe singer named Anna (Scarlett Johansson). The latter can't get her live-in partner of seven years, Neil (Ben Affleck), to commit to some form of nuptials. While Janine and Beth pursue their own guidance from gal pal ad editor Mary (Drew Barrymore), Gigi develops a platonic bond with wise guy bar manager Alex (Justin Long). He's a fount of information on how guys treat girls, and with his help, our heroine hopes to find Mr. Right... or at the very least, avoid Mr. Right Now.
