I went to see this movie at my favorite movie theatre, Los Feliz 3, with Jonathan tonight. I call it the feel good movie of 2009. It was amazingly delightful. Wonderful soundtrack, wonderful cast, and heart-warming, inspiring story. It really made me wish that I was young in the 60s in Britain. My hair would look so good in that decade. Highlights include Bill Nighy dancing (the definition of cool in everything he does), Tom Sturridge (who I've never seen before, but has the most beautiful lips of...oh man...those lips), Emma Thompson as a total milf, and some seriously funny moments. It made me want to dance and cry and laugh and steal a boat and play music on it. I couldn't recommend it more; it put me in such a good mood!

I had heard really good things about this movie so I was a touch disappointed in it. Overall, it was funny and entertaining. However, it was lacking some cohesion, so it felt a bit like we were just randomly hopping from scene to scene. This made it difficult to engage with the story as it began to feel like non of it mattered. That being said it really was quite funny and the casting was fantastic. Philip Seymour Hoffman and Kenneth Branagh made the moive for me by give very small and hysterical performances.

Great idea with the best possible ingredients, but fails to deliver anything but a big awful mess. And just to make my point clear this movie is really badly directed, way over long and totally pointless.
