Not as good as it should have been — 6 years ago
I saw this after “A Lot Like Love” with my wife. I really liked A Lot Like Love and I think the part I liked is the romantic part. It is probaly important to remember how much one brings themselves to a movie. The story is not in a vacuum but how it resonates with your own experience and maybe that was the miss. But Kutcher and Peet somehow worked. Neither are actors of the theatre like Streep and Thurman has real talent (Pulp Fiction is remarkable), but the chemistry and backdrop of a Lot Like Love zings.
There is a lot to like here – Uma Thurman and Meryl Streep are very good. But the relationship between Thurman and David Bloomberg just doesn’t make it.
