Pass the Tums

About “No Reservations” . . .

I’ve read some bad film reviews in my life but nothing can top what folks are saying about this rotten turd of celluloid.
Just had to share this.

“No Reservations” has garnered comments such as this from
Shawn Edwards of Fox TV:

“The most delightful film of the year!”

and from Bonnie Laufer of Tribute TV

“Irresistible and charming. The PERFECT DATE movie.”

and from Gene Shalit
(Does anyone really believe this mustachioed whackjob anyway?)

“A Pleasure”
(thank, Gene. Now take care of the caterpillars mating on your forehead)

I want to set the record straight with a few choice comments from a weekly paper here in Boston. You can click HERE to get to the WeeklyDig but right now the site is suspiciously under construction. [BRB]
I’ve read reviews here before and have to say they’re usually outrageous and downright true.
And no, I haven’t seen the movie, but damn, this was funny . . .
Here are a few choice comments from David Wildman of the Dig:

“Catherine Zeta-Jones and Aaron Eckhart go through the motions of pretending to be real humans with actual feelings, all the while displaying the depth and emotional resonance of the underwear models in a Sears circular.”

Nice.

“Watching this film is the cinematic equivalent of taking that dreadful feeling you have just before you know you’re going to barf and prolonging it for 90 minutes.”

You know that feeling?

Wildman goes on and on but I think you get the point; do yourself a favor and take No Reservations off your menu immediately before someone else gets sick.
Just wanted to save you a few bucks.
Hey, there’s always NetFlix, right?

  1. Awww. I was hoping that would be cute. I like a little romance with my rare steak every now and then.

    I didn’t even see it Lass.
    After reading all the reviews tanking the movie, I wrote this post. The guy from the Dig just floored me.
    Annie liked it though . . .

  2. Hmmm…I just saw this movie this weekend and I loved it. I thought it was really sweet and touching. Maybe it’s a chick thing – but I would highly recommend it myself. Maybe the reviewer was constipated when he saw the movie? 😉

    I’ve never read so many bad reviews for a movie in my life. Honestly.
    Had I read one lukewarm review, this post wouldn’t have happened.
    This guy wasn’t constipated but he was funnier than shit.
    Glad you liked the movie. I’ve no doubt my daughters will rent it someday.
