A small business owner is about to lose her shop to a major corporate development. (IMDb)
So, I took a break from Oscar nominees to watch this with some friends the other night, and it was totally worth it. Is this a parody movie? Absolutely. Is this smart as hell? Definitely. I don’t love parody movies, because I think they’re pointless. This is just way too smart not to ignore. It pokes fun of literally every single romantic comedy trope in existence. The incredible ensemble cast with Amy Poehler and Paul Rudd leading the charge is hilarious. There were two jokes that went a little too far/were a little too out there for me. But overall, any lover (or hater) of rom-coms will get a definite kick out of this.
