This weekend was the limited release of this film in NY, so don’t be too surprised that you haven’t heard anything about it, neither did I. The only reason I came across it was because The Huntsman was the only major released movie this weekend, and I wasn’t hearing too many great things about it, so I was on the hunt for something to substitute it. That’s when I came across the trailer. Not really much going on in the trailer, but I was won over by Susan Sarandon and Rose Byrne, who I adore.
I left the theater with nothing but a smile on my face. There was something so heartfelt about the movie that makes it easy to relate. Susan Sarandon was a natural as Marnie, and absolutely hilarious with very little effort. Everyone in the cast was great, but it was definitely Sarandon who stole the show. It has been a while, but this movie had me all types of emotional. It’s possible I did shed a tear at one part…lol. My favorite part of the story was between Sarandon’s character Marnie, and J.K. Simmons character Zipper. These two were absolutely adorable together, so much so, I found myself crushing on Zipper. Seriously….I want me a Zipper! :(…lol
This is definitely more of a chick movie, something that would be great with a few girlfriends, or a date with your mother. Men will find it entertaining, but doesn’t seem like the type of movie you would go see unless accompanied by a female. If this movie makes it in your area though, I definitely recommend you see it…A
