Predictable came out of the closet to say:
This movie showed a naive girl interfering in other people's lives to better her own. While her intentions were good, her methods were terrible and caused a lot of people a lot of grief. If this movie were about schadenfreude, then that would be acceptable, but I found it to be obscene as it is. On top of that, it used a lot of tricks to point out obvious things that anybody with a functioning brain would not have missed in the first place, which made it feel like it was trying to escort you through the "difficult" parts. (I.E. the visual effect showing the stolen key glowing in her pocket)

I completely disagree with this review, not just because I love the movie.
I think overall she did more good than harm, and in the end pretty much everyone was happy. As far as 'pointing things out' I think it was just meant to be cute, and easy to understand. I also didn't think it was pretentious as all, and that sort of thing really bothers me so if it had been I wouldn't like it nearly as much.

Anyway.
This is the third and probably last time I'll say this about a movie here, but this is one of my favorite movies ever, if not my absolute favorite.
It makes me feel good every time I watch it. I've never, outside of this thread, heard any bad reviews of it or heard anything bad said about it.
The story is fun, clever, and interesting, it's cute (but not annoyingly-so), it's hilarious, and it's amazingly beautiful. Audrey Tautou is hot. The music is great.
It's not a chick flick, although girls love it and I recomend it as a date movie.
I think everyone should see it. I don't think it really matters what sort of mood you're in. If you're sad you'll be happy, and if you're happy you'll feel even better.
5/5
