The rest of the movie results in a bunch of jumbled, half-thought out ideas that result in a lackluster ending. There's just no heart to this film, no chemistry between the two leads, and no decent ending to tie it together, just false sentimentalities to make up for a film that steers nowhere.
Anyone would agree there's really nothing to love in this love story. While there's certainly innovation here and I generally enjoy romantic films and I certainly enjoyed this one , I have to admit that there's something lacking in the way it ended.
The actors did as best they could with the material but maybe it's just that mushy-cushy feeling and predictability you always get with these films that sometimes just doesn't cut it for me. Well i can't say i had high hopes for this movie, mainly because of the poor ratings and reviews, i haven't read the book so lucky for me i didnt have anything to compare it to!
But apart from it being a bit bleak and me disliking Dexter Mayhew as a character its an okay Romantic drama with Hathaway even bringing some light comedy to it! For the faults of the movie, where it may have been directed better and more emotion put into the movie as there was potential for it to be tragic, cryfest romantic drama but it failed to capture that emotion and pass it across to the audience, that all said i think Hathaway should get plus points for her acting, she was funny, and gorgeous as ever and did a remarkably believable and good english accent that so many other american actors fail to accomplish!
It is my type of Romantic movie because its not all lovey dovey with the two main characters hopelessly in love and nothing bad happens and they live happily ever after, which is just unrealistic this movie is more honest and although i didnt think Mayhew deserved Emma its still a sweet enough romantic drama not the best but certainly not the worst i would say its worth a watch even if it is only the once!
