Evangelos C (ca) wrote: Watched on TV, missed some stuff before I got to it. It is, quite simply, a very funny film, but nothing special.The protagonists have good chemistry, and Sandra is lovely, but Melissa truly delivers the humor. I think I'd easily give it a 5/10 if she wasn't around, or someone else who'd fit the action and lines.All in all, nice story, funny script, and Melissa.

Moe J (jp) wrote: Well, I guess I'm going to give this movie a mildly positive review. It has some good acting, especially Steve Zahn, who gives a pretty convincing performance as the socially awkward sadsack who's determined to be with Jennifer Anniston's character no matter what the cost. However, I think that this movie was supposed to be a comedy and I think on that level, the movie fails. The film's not very funny. It's more awkward and uncomfortable, instead. Still, it's got some good writing and some fine performances, so I think I'll just give it a mild recommendation. I don't think it's worth going out of your way to see, though. My rating: A mild 2.5 stars out of 4 stars.

I understood her and I knew where she was coming from. Most people wouldn't get this movie because there are too many closed-minded, shallow people out there. But I loved it. I just wish the ending would have been different...

Steve N (mx) wrote: It kills me that this delightful romantic comedy was not Cary Grant's swan song instead of the "bridge too far" that was Walk, Don't Run. He was simply fantastic in this as the boozed-up former history professor Walter Eckland caught up in the early chaos of the War in the Pacific. Though it's impossible for Grant to truly shed his innate elegance, he does "besotted" and "grungy" well enough for this. Leslie Caron is a hoot as the matron for a parcel of schoolgirls dropped in Grant's lap. The highlight for me, though, is Trevor Howard as Grant's Royal Navy overseer, who expertly manipulates the irascible Eckland and provides some of the funniest moments, even though the majority of his scenes are him in one room talking on the radio. If you can buy into the relationship arc between Grant and Caron, which culminates in a rather clumsy reversal, then the film will win you over. Get stuck on the admittedly precipitous leap and the rest will crumble before your eyes. I bought it, and gladly.

Cory T (gb) wrote: Can any priest actually be solid and resolute in their faith or must there always been an internal turmoil over God? The first signpost of malaise and ineptitude in the pitiful 'Exorcist II: The Heretic' is the superimposition of a possessed South American girl in flames and it is unintentionally laughable. Then the drivel shifts to Regan (Linda Blair) who has blossomed into a buxom ingnue off- Broadway and it's queasy to view Blair in the sexy prima donna context. Denials from the Catholic Church are commonplace nowadays so the fact that the Cardinal reevaluates his position on Satan as a corporeal entity is fathomable. The sleepy tone extends to the clash between modern hypnotherapy and devout piety. The "synchronizer" sequence is an incomprehensible jumble of nonsensical rhetoric, hammy, trance-like reaction shots from Richard Burton and Louise Fletcher and an excruciating recreation of Merrin's battle with Pazuzu. A biblical swarm of locusts in Africa and Regan's psychic abilities suborn more narrative incongruity than unnerving terror. Retconning Regan with an ESP slant is arbitrary and monumentally doltish (ex. Her conversation with Sandra, a stuttering autistic patient, is the height of hilarity). A Jesuit priest plummeting from a Cliffside is such flagrant wirework that he seems to be sailing on a hang glider. Most of the dawdling scenes of Burton's investigation in Africa are transparently filmed against a matte painting. Perhaps though, James Earl Jones in a locust costume is the official jumping-the-shark moment. This is the worst second chapter of a horror blockbuster outside of 'Blair Witch 2: Book of Shadows'. Even on its own wobbly structure (along with an Atari-esque midi theme), 'Exorcist II' is a toothlessly unmitigated fiasco that desecrates the memory of the Academy Award-nominated original.
