Can you say "Feel Good!" This is a really charming film. A friend invited me to a screening in San Francisco and I didn't know what to expect. Gorgeous shots of London, super witty, fast dialogue, cool music throughout, great performances and surprising cameos throughout. I wasn't too familiar with Brittany Murphy before but she's adorable in this film. The English gal who plays her best friend is hilarious. To me, the film is along the lines of Love Actually. There's room for all kinds of films and sometimes you want realistic drama, documentary and so on. But there's also a time for kicking back and having a laugh. So if you're looking for intelligent, light entertainment, see this film!

The Synopsis for Love and Other Disasters (2006) 720p
Emily Jackson lives a fast-paced life. Always on the go, able to talk around the clock, with a sensitive soul she loves playing matchmaker for her friends. It's Emily's gay roommate and frequent companion Peter, who becomes again the subject matchmaking skills when handsome new photographer assistant Paolo arrives at the Vogue offices, where Emily works. She makes it her mission to bring the two men together. Unfortunately for her, she is so busy arranging a love connection between Peter and Paolo that she remains completely blind to the one suitor who longs to provide her with the loving companionship that she so cheerfully arranges for others. And so it does make sense that Peter, a screenwriter in the making, starts telling the story from his own point of view.

What a complete bore this film was. One dimensional characters with a bland script. I fell asleep half way. I sometimes wonder if anyone watches these films before they are released. This movie tries to be hip and youthful, funny and clever, and warm and heartfelt and fails dramatically at all of them. I reckon that all the cast went around telling everyone that they were in a film with Paltrow and Bloom except of course Paltrow and Bloom who must of stumbled across the set whilst looking for the toilet. They found it. The main character "jacks" was so annoying I found myself hoping that she would be hit by a London bus. Oh yeah, and where the hell do they think you can find an straight Argentinian who lets you think he's gay for more than 10 seconds...jeez. Dawn French, you really don't have to do this. Angus deaton, you do.
This movie is completely trite and unoriginal. I should say "trite and hackneyed," because really it deserves only clichés for descriptors. Its feeble efforts at self-reflexivity fail every time. In the conversation discussing whether true love is a process or a lightning bolt, the screenwriter has the audacity to claim (through the mouth of a character) that this story tells us which it is. But it doesn't! At all! And no on-screen disclaimers are capable of explaining away Brittany Murphy's EMBARRASSING accent, nor can empty pseudo-self-referentiality redeem the film (in truth, the movie doesn't reference itself, it just mindlessly, impotently appropriates the concept of self-reference from movies past). Watching this movie is like spending an hour and a half staring at the tackiest lawn in town while filling your stomach with cheap greasy fast food and ignoring profiteers bulldozing civilization's entire cultural and artistic heritage in your peripheral vision. It's a cheapened reproduction of a reproduction of a reproduction. A simulacrum. A gaudy hunk of cubic zirconium that you can't wait to forget. The only penance this movie offers for the crime of its existence is this: it ends.
