I thought that this movie wasn't that bad.  I thought that the worst part of the movie was nothing with the plot but that David Duchovny's acting was a little shaky at times.  I also think that I saw another movie with almost the exact same plot but I cannot remember what it was.  I thought that some of the humor was pretty funny but they did not try to overdo it too much.  The old men was a good touch as well as the hidden story behind this monkey.  All in all pretty enjoyable.

All the Pretty Horses

I really liked the first half of this movie.  The love scenes were okay and then I sort of thought that the movie was going to just turn into a straight love movie.  Then when the two guys go to prison and meet back up with their old friend I found that I sort of liked that idea also.  But after Matt Damon goes back and sees the girl one more time I was ready for something exciting to happen, instead the movie had a dull ending that didn't really make much sense.  Guess the writer just wanted to be different but couldn't come up with a good idea.

A Fish Called Wanda

I thought that this was a good romantic comedy.  I found it good because it sort of put a comical twist into a movie about a robbery.  I thought that Jamie Lee Curtis played a very sexy role and the confrontations between Kevin Kleine and John Cleese are hysterical.  This is just a fun movie with romance not too sappy.  The characters are easy to watch and the robbery sort of takes second to a wacky story.

I thought that this was a good movie.  I thought that it was a very interesting twist on your normal lost crush movie.  The best part of this movie might be the soundtrack.  John Cusack gives a great performance being a hitman in a role that seems a little strange to him.  The idea was so original and hilarious in the way that the hitmen conduct their business.  They could have had the roughneck guy who falls in love with a girl but instead it is the sensitive murderer with his sensitive murderer friends.  A hilarious romantic comedy.

I didn't really think this movie was that bad.  I thought that the way that some of the guys approached having sex with some of these girls was actually pretty comical.  This movie is pretty much totally about sex which is sort of a different way of looking at a movie.  The part about the girl sleeping with her best friends love now that is something that gets played out all the time.  But for a slow somewhat romantice movie it was still interesting.

This was a very funny romantic comedy.  I thought that Hugh Grant makes the perfect character for someone who is scared of having a baby.  I thought that the small parts by Robin Williams and Tom Arnold are hysterical.  This movie is very funny especially for anyone who understands the concept of pregnancy and the constraints that it puts on a man who may not be ready to give up all his partying.

The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas

For the first hour of this movie I thought that it was just a stupid musical, but then I began to see that it was going to be a little bit better.  If you are looking for a down right funny comedy then this is not really the way to go but if you are looking for a comedy mixed in with a strange lovestory then this is your kind of movie.  It is easy to watch but not spectacular.  It also has Dolly Parton singing a song that she wrote that was later made very popular by a different artist.

While You Were Sleeping

This was a cute sort of romance movie.  At first you sort of feel like Sandra Bullock is just out of her mind to do what she does but then you see how it makes her feel and you almost feel as if she did the right thing.  Showing a romance between a mans brother and his fiancÚ is exactly the sort of thing that happens too much in the world today and even though it is a good love story that sort of action shouldnt be glorified.  This is a good love story because it shows a girls struggle between what she thought was perfect and what really was.

This movie to me was a boring love movie.  I dont really have much to say about it.  It was full of passion and romance but as a storyline wasnt too eventful.  I guess that it is different for a black love movie which usually include a lot more mindless sex and a lot less of a good romantic story.  This movie though full of sex, is still a throwback to a good passionate love story.

The Prince of Tides

I thought this was sort of a reality romance movie.  The two get caught up in their romatic episode in the middle of a breakdown of Nick Nolte's sister.  I think that this movie shows two people who end up getting together for a while but then realize that it can not be because family is more important to them.  I thought that Nick Nolte was honorable in a way for going back to his family but at the same time maybe he shouldn't have had his fling.  In this case though, his fling helps him resolve the problems in his personality which helps him with his family.

It Had To Be You

This movie was a pretty weak attempt at a romance movie.  I mean we have seen this sort of thing play out a thousand time before.  A man is with another woman yatta yatta yatta.  They get together at the end, the end.  Not to mention the two of these couples are in New York picking out things for the wedding and before they meet each other they don't even seem interested.  I have an idea, how about the deep conflict between a perfect woman and another perfect woman.

I understand the story but I thought that it was just too slow and boring.  I thought that both actors did a good job I was just dissapointed because you keep waiting for something to happen.  It just never does.  The best scene of the movie is the scene where Jennifer Lopez speaks to the camera at her parents house.  This scene touches you but it is just too little too late.

Serendipity

This is a movie about fate and it almost takes it too far.  I mean it does take it too far but that is sort of the joke of the movie.  I think that it is supposed to go out of the realm of reality just to show that crazier things have happened, maybe.  I think that this isn't John Cusack's best movie but it is still enjoyable how crazily coincidental it is.  The humor wasn't bad but it could have used a little bit more.  This is a love story that just about anybody can watch.  Cusack's friend and the store clerk add good touches to the movie.

The Time Machine

I did not think this movie was that bad and it was very creative and perceptive in the way that it looked at the future.  Having not ever read the book I must believe that the way that they described 2037 must have been different.  The only thing about the movie that I did not really understand was why all the bad creatures were killed and the end and the humans were not.  The only thing that I can think of is that they did not have any brains to lead them but I don't think that is the reason.

The Horse Whisperer

The thing that I didnt like about this movie is that I felt like I was rooting against the woman and Robert Redford from getting together.  This is not a good scenario for a love movie.  Besides that Robert Redford gives a good touch to a movie about a man who fixes a horse and all the things around it.  This movie seemed to drag on and I think that it was a little too long.

I went into this movie expecting it to be a little more of a comedy movie and a little less of a romance movie.  I don't know which part was better.  I think this movie works better as a romance movie because the romantic plot is a little more bizarre.  As a comedy movie this movie will not make you fall out of your chair.  I thought that Josh Hartnett gave a good performance with some of his clumsy antics but for the most part did not have that much funny stuff to say.

Terms of Endearment

I thought this was a great movie.   It is probably one of the best romance movies that I have ever seen.  I thought it was so good because it showed so many things that can happen in a real life relationship and how sometimes there are things that are more important than love.  This movie shows how love can be strange and that things that happen in life don't always change how much you love somebody.  This is a movie about family and friends with some great acting.

Loverboy

An eighties type romantic comedy about a boy who is having trouble with school and his girlfriend, so he gets a job as a pizza boy.  This pizza delivery job leads to him being a professional lover with many married women.  His life gets twisted around from there.  I dont really know what is good about this movie except for the fact that this guy might have the best job ever.  It isnt too often that a pizza delivery guy gets something this good. 

That Night

This movie is sort of a strange love story.  It is about a girl who is not very popular and becomes infatuated with the girl across the street.  She seems so happy and in love with a boy that the whole neighborhood hates because he is a greaser.  When the girl finds out that he is a good guy she only wants to be like this girl.  Only this girl isnt perfect.  The little girl learns a lot about boys and love even though she is still too young to understand.

Pearl Harbor

This is a story of a love triangle going on during World War II and ends up with the invasion at Pearl Harbor.  I thought that the actors did a good job and I thought that Hartnett and Affleck were good together.  I thought this movie was good because it got away from the usual sort of war movie where a man is sort of the hero.  I also thought it was good because one of the two boys died.  They remained friends through the whole thing.  If you are looking for a movie about love and friendship during a war this is the movie for you.
