Definitely, Maybe

Postby Keepcoolbutcare on Thu Feb 14, 2008 6:10 am

or, Emphatically, Perchance

or, In spades, Mayhap

or Unquestionably, Peradventure

but with utmost certitude DEFINITELY, MAYBE!

horrible, horrible, horrible poster aside, I've always liked Ryan Reynolds, Rachel Weisz sends my testicles a twitter, and the trailer has been brayed at by a fairly large percentage of my fellow theatre goers.

Plus, Valentine's Day? This will 'prolly take the BO crown, but one can't underestimate STEP UP 2 THE STREETS; well, can't underestimate the first film's commercial appeal.

Feel free to mock the title of the sequel to your sarcastic heart's contempt.

{don't we step up onto curbs and sidewalks? Aren't streets the nadir of one's average walk, excepting potholes of course? Shouldn't there be a colon somewhere between, I don't know, 2 and THE?}

Definitely, Maybe

HAHAHA, what are you talking about?

I saw the trailer to this not too long ago, they might've played it before Juno, I don't remember. It seemed like it could be a charming film, but nothing really made it stand out from the usual sentimental romantic comedy. True, those movies do often work, and I'm usually surprised that they don't turn out as bad as I would have expected.

you don't search by posts?

do try it...it's next to { Display results as: }

it's not hard, and it's a much better way to find things round the zone...

Actually with the current search engine I don't think it searches the words in a title, which is one of the things that makes it so sucky... however, in the new Zone you will have the option to search threads by title only, which will be a huge boon to trying to find old threads... if they're appropriately titled, that is. :)

Thanks KCBC, didnt reallize...


I saw 27 Dresses a few weeks ago and what a disappointment that turned out to be. The lackluster Sex And The City screenplay didn’t deserve Katherine Heigl or a bamf favorite Judy Greer. I am ever more skeptical of Malin Akerman’s ability to pull off her role in the upcoming Watchmen. She is Snyder’s choice for the lynchpin character Laurie Juspeczyk/Silk Specter II—ever more I feel she is just too vacant to give what that character demands*. After being somewhat charmed by P.S. I Love You, but left with a bitter taste in my mouth from 27 Dresses—it was with timid caution that I would see Definitely, Maybe.

I liked it, I mean I really liked Definitely, Maybe. The story starts out with Will Hayes (Ryan Reynolds) receiving good news at work, and bad news from home. He has been served with divorce papers. From there the film goes into its weakest moment being the opening title sequence as Will hits the pavement passing through the streets of New York to pick his daughter up from elementary school. The song use was vanilla, and the film’s stock was plummeting as fast as a tech business in 2000. Thankfully, it pulled out well.

Reynolds does a fine job in his role. He easily can go over the top with his quick style, but in this one he is quite natural. Elizabeth Banks, Isla Fisher and Rachel Weisz were all smart casting for not only the story, but for their distinctive personalities that Reynolds can play off of. The big surprise is how awesome Abigail Breslin is in her role as Hayes’ daughter Maya. She is damn funny, cute, and as natural as can be with some weighty lines at times. If she fell flat, then this just wouldn’t work. Definitely, Maybe is a fairy tale of sorts, where the Princess gets to find out how she came to be. Maya wants to know how her Mother and Father met, with the hope that by making her Dad recount how he fell for her Mom, it might save their relationship. Will agrees to tell her the story, but since it involves three different women he will not tell her who her Mom is in the story, and leaves it for her to figure it out. The script has the structure, and to some extent the beats of The Princess Bride, gone urban.

Directed as well as written by Adam Brooks, color me pleased. The last thing I personally have seen by Brooks was French Kiss, another one of my ladies film favorites. To that connection, he gives us some great cynicism from Kevin Kline’s portrayal of a fast living Professor Hampton Roth, who’s book The Decline of Almost Everything if real, would be a must read in my library. Brooks knows how to write a lovely romantic comedy, and is even greater when he writes for Kline.

The story is just good fun, it lives in the 90’s but doesn’t try to be future aware. Will works for the Bill Clinton campaign in 1992 in New York, and when the first of many of Clinton’s sexcapades breaks in scandal it’s given a quite honest reaction by the characters who would rather believe in the man instead of the scandal**. But boy did Clinton rub that in our faces.

What I loved so much about this film, and why it will eventually sit paid for on my DVD shelf, is how Brooks is able to give his audience cake, and let them eat it too. There is a real swooning love story here, and it brings such gravity to the story by seeing the result of whatever happens between Will’s three loves in young Maya. There just are not many stories that take us beyond the sexy kiss in the rain. The story goes beyond that cliché and brings something fresh to the table. While others will disagree, I say seeing this is a definite, certainly not a maybe.

I give it full a full vibrator rating. Very stimulating.

*Please prove me wrong.

A thread for Definitely Maybe? Surely the only good thing about this flick will be Weisz?

Mmmmm..... Weisz. I would post a hot semi-nude pic of this wonderful goddess if it weren't for the fact that my boss can see my screen from her office. Not that it was relevant to the conversation anyway. Blah blah just ignore me.

I love Bamf with the Vibrator rating.

Can we rate films with Vibrators?

1 being flacid and 5 being Petrified.

a half can be anal beads or something.

Anyone's guess pal....anyone's guess.

There were dodgy twins in Neighbours and I think there were dodgy twins in Home and Away. I know that Danni Minogue was in Home and Away but I never watched the damn thing.

I also know that Danni Minogue was in a stripper ...I saw the pictures in a newspaper (the Sun).

Now that's what you call a meaty part.

At first I was rating these type of movies on a 1-5 vibrator scale, with a film like P.S. ILU getting a full 5, and 27 Dresses a definite 1. But then it occured to me, does a lady ever need more then 2 vibrators at any time?? I mean you only have two hands and all, so the review scale is in flux at the moment given the recent revelations in my head.

Not really... Rachel Weisz is on a streak of stinkers right now, and Definitely, Maybe is most definitely on the list.

Not much to say here except that it was a sub-standard rom-com. The trailer gives pretty much what few surprises there are away. Whatever's left is done in a real formulaic manner... the acting, script, cinematography, etc are all pretty weak. I'm not sure I'd seen Ryan Reynolds in a movie before, but he doesn't do anything of worth in this film.

Isla Fisher and to a certain extent Kevin Kline were the film's saving graces.

Really couldn't recommend this though, I give it a 4/10.

So on a Bamf rating, it would be a tickler or slightly flacid second rated dildo with only 1 speed?

Hehehe, I'd say a solid dildo... but second-hand, not one of those fancy NEW ones! Still the film served as a mild diversion, it was pretty watchable, just not good.
