This was yet another girlfriend choice, but thankfully this wasn’t nearly as bad as the last one she made me watch. This one was actually quite good.
First off I would like to say that I WANT THE MAIN CHARACTERS JOB!!!!!!! Holy hell, the guy is a genius! And the movie opens his job really well. Basically he is comic (like Sunday paper comics, not book type) artist for a spy. And he gets his inspiration for his comics by actually acting them out. His butler follows him around with a camera that actually looks like a gun, so when you first see him, it looks like he is trying to snipe him off. Genius way to start a movie I must say. But later on he goes back and looks at the photos taken and then spreads out what he has done over a few weeks worth of comics. Total Genius.
But one night he is celebrating at a friend’s Bachelor party and had wayyyyyy to much to drink. And lo and behold, a lovely lady pops out of a cake. Well Stanly Ford(the main character) Falls in love instantly. And when he wakes up the next morning there is a woman in his bed, with a wedding ring on. Somehow in the fiasco of her jumping out of the cake and time of Stanly waking up in the morning, he finds himself married to her. I have no idea how he accomplished it, the movie kind of inserts one sentence answer just to cover it, but it still happened.
Oh and the best part? She doesn’t speak English. She speaks Italian. So right off the bat it’s insanity.
To top that off, his Butler refuses to work in a house where couples live together. So in the insanity of getting wasted, waking up married to someone who doesn’t speak your language, your butler also quits.
The only thing that bothered me was that near the end he was in a courtroom hearing and it felt like it dragged on forever, I almost fell asleep it was so boring. But then when I was about to konk out, it just picked itself right back up again.
All in all, this movie is pretty good. I also like how one more than one occasion they broke down the 4th wall and actually talked to the audience directly, it’s something that is not done at all anymore in movies. And it truly adds a certain effect to the film.
Base Score = 6
+1 for job AWESOMENESS!!!!
+1 for crazy night of insanity
-1 for slow courtroom proceedings.
