3 Good Things About This Film

  1. Zac Efron and Michelle Pfeiffer were the two best. But especially Zac Efron, because he's a different character for every movie he's in. And that is awesome to behold, considering how many people “act”, but never different enough that they couldn't be exchanged like a boring light blub.
  2. Lea Michele did a great job. Nice to hear her sing. She, too, can act, seeing how she took on a role that wasn't similar to her Rachel role on “Glee.” Though, of course, they got her to sing. Something Efron avoids at all cost. Or so it seems. Though I heard a rumor he wants to guest star on “Glee.”
  3. These are the only two stories I will remember from this film and that's a good thing, considering the other stories were not that good. At. All.

6 Bad Things About This Film

  1. Valentines Day 2.
  2. Too many story lines that were NOT interesting.
  3. Too long.
  4. Not enough greatness from the amount of STAR power that was in it.
  5. Too long. Oh, I mentioned that. Well it was too long and saying it twice shows how long too long really is.
  6. What's next? Saint Patrick's Day? Christmas? Fourth of July? Birthday? Ugh...it's never ending. There are 365 days of the year, and I'm sure each day has holiday that they could exploit. Meaning, two down...362 left.

It's only worth it if you have nothing to do and you are not looking to be thoroughly entertained.
