Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I dont care what anyone thinks either, Im a guy and watch this movie everytime it comes on HBO, encore, cinemax and also own it on DVD!

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I'm not going as far as bdaryan but it's on telly at the moment (which is why I'm on here) and I don't think it's a bad film. It's not a classic and it's not got anything to say artistically but that's not really the point is it. It's a fantasy film aimed at young girls so I can forgive the lack of complexity or realism (I don't mean fantasy in the genre sense but I'm sure lots of young kids dream of this happening to them and they don't take real world politics into account).

I think it's actually got solid performances that elevate the material above similarly themed/predictable films and create likeable characters (I particularly warmed to Anne Hathaway, Julie Andrews and Hector Elizondo far more than I expected going in to the film).

The story is formulaic and there's not much artistry (like Pixar and some of the old 2D Disney animations have in both storytelling and production) but enough care has gone in to make a quality product with some light humour and some suitably cheesy heart warming moments. A lot of kids/teen entertainment is so slapdash these days and it seems the makers don't seem to think kids are discerning enough to notice, this is better than that. I think this film accomplishes exactly what it's meant to very well and isn't as patronising or shallow as I expected a live film aimed at kids to be.

How much s**t is there on the menu and what *beep* flavour is it?

I do - and I'm 70.

Vademecum

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I'm a guy and thought it was absolutely crap.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I liked it and even saw it in the theater when it came out. Cute movie!

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I'm a guy and I'm not much a fan of the storyline, but I do love the setting! I do love some of the lines in the movie like "Hey guys wait for me! Not you, I don't even know you!".

Not any sane ones. yes.gif

Be open-minded, but not so open-minded that your brains fall out.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I get a good laugh from it.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I'm a guy and love this movie. I saw it in the theatre, and still watch the VHS tape I got as a birthday present the year after.

Hey slut! I'm sending your parents a letter telling them you're a whore!

I like it too, and I've seen it heaps of times. I usually end up watching it at least some of it when it's on TV. It might be because I like Julie Andrews, and it's a fun feel-good movie.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I do, I just finished watching it on E

Trying is the fist step towards sucking. Mayo is sick. Sports suck. It's Glee Club not Crunk Club.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I think its pretty good, the dinner scene (with all the world leaders and such) was by far the best scene in the movie. That was one funny scene, but other than this, it's a decent film that's certainly good for a few laughs.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

Yes I like this movie. I think it's funny and I tend to like the family comedies that don't tend to focus on Romeo and Julia likes romances only. This movie had so much more to offer.

I'm a guy and I love this movie!




For those who fight for it, life has a flavor the sheltered will never know!

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

My favorite "chick flick." Couldn't really tell you why. Except I remember watching it a lot when it hit VHS. I still couldn't tell you why though.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I love this movie, it is better than the second movie.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I only watch it because it's in my daughter's DVD collection. It's not that bad, but I quite like chick flicks - although I prefer ones aimed at older women, rather than pre-teens, even though there seems to be dominant theme transmitted that every woman wants to find 'the one' and marry him, regardless of how successful she is professionally.

It would be an interesting list: most popular chick flicks amongst men?

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

I do. I don't love it, but as far as movies made for young girls, this is one of the best. And I think it can be enjoyed by people outside of the target.

Re: Do any guys like this movie?

Perhaps you should have asked "straight guys." I ADORE this movie!
