(es) wrote: "Southside With You" is exactly how romantic comedies should be like in this day and age. It's smart, not recycled at all, and it gives us interesting characters that we can get invested in. Throw your political views out the window going into this movie because yes, this movie is about how Barack and Michelle Obama met. It gives off a Richard Linklater-esque vibe with the film being very walking and talking centric, much like Linklater's "Before" trilogy. If you are one of those people who dislike the Obama's for one reason or another you still shouldn't have too hard of a time liking this movie due to the fact that they don't focus on these two characters being the famous "Obama's" we know today. It's a movie about how two people met, and their names just happen to be Barack, and Michelle. Pretend that they're different people if you must, but see the film anyway if you're a fan of the genre.

Harry Frommermann is a poor, but talented musician writing his own pieces & dreaming of the big success. When he goes to the store nearby & listens to new records he is so deeply fascinated by the tunes that he doesn't even realize that Erna, the young employee, adores him. When the day comes where he can barely afford the food for his parrot, it is time to do something about his situation. He launches a newspaper ad looking for company to found a singing group. He gets to know Robert Biberti & both seem to be on the same level. Soon four other fellows are found. A concept evolves & rehearsal begins. Yes another Hitler movie. But this one is different it??s a musical in the great musical art deco age of the 1920 & this movie ends with the persecuted Jews escaping to other countries. The film is big, enjoyable musical biopic of the kind Hollywood used to produce in the '50s. The plot is conventional but high with its production values. The basic story has all the ingredients of a good commercial story: Berlin in its wild, decadent heyday; marital & sexual tensions within the group; a trip Stateside at a crucial point in their career. Add to this a top-drawer cast & you have a very fine enjoyable movie. Some critics panned this movie. I don??t know why. It almost seems we saw different films. Six main actors, who bear more than a passing resemblance to the real characters, blend excellently & look comfortable in period costumes & mannerisms: Noethen is very good as Frommermann, torn between love of his homeland & the compromises that keep him there; Becker excellent as the brash, blond Biberti, who sticks by Frommermann to the end (this is probably Becker's defining film role; he is fantastic) ; Wiesinger smooth in a tailor-made role as the arranger; & Heinrich Schafmeister quietly impressive Collin, in many ways the rock of the group. Musical staging, which use digitally re-mastered recordings by the actual group, range from the intimate to large-scale, & are briskly staged & cut. The results are excellent. An epilogue reveals what happened to all the Harmonists. One moved to California & eventually became the oldest active cantor in America. Others had a good life also. 5 stars. (addendum I watched this first half of this film with French language. Be sure and switch to German the language it was filmed in. The french dubs were not well syncopated)

(br) wrote: Mmmm, Adam Sandler is terrible but this film isn't stupid and shallow like Grows Up or all other movie with the great Adam.
(de) wrote: Unfunny film, with lame gags, bad screenplay with an overabundance of obscenities which is supposed to pass for wit, poor character development with a 'buddy connection' that fails to convince, and a weak plot.If you want to watch two middle-aged women - one foul mouthed fat bird, and one gentile skinny one - with little to no chemistry or likeability, then this is for you. I'm puzzled by how this scored above average with both critics and audiences on here. And I feel sorry for Thomas F. Wilson whose cameo is the best thing about this mess of a movie.And someone somewhere actually said that this travesty is better than 'Hot Fuzz'. They were clearly having a laugh!
