But I didn't feel like the film had much else going on for it. I didn't really like the "magical" elements to it. The giant talking rock monsters kind of took me out of the film. Or having people who can magically make you no longer barren. Plus, I didn't even think the CGI on the rock monsters was even that good. And the film sometimes, had some crappy dialogue.
It had some good moments, but it was rather disappointing. I thought about walking out at one point. (I didnt though).

Last movie I couldn't get songs like "Man or Muppet" out of my head. In this one, none of the original songs stuck out. They weren't horrible. They were just not memorable.
And I understand that the human counterparts tend to not make repeat performances, but I felt like the film was lacking the presence of Jason Segel and Amy Adams. Maybe its because none of the humans in the movie were really good people.
That being said, I did enjoy it. Very funny. Was in a theater with a bunch of families, and the kids were laughing. There are going to be some cameos and jokes that go completely over their heads though. That's ok, more fun for the adults.

I mainly went because my sister was a fan of the show and wanted me to come along. The good thing is that you don't have to watch the show to understand what's going on. In fact the movie starts off with a backstory of how Veronica started doing investigation work (basically a recap of the television show). I think though it probably would have been better if I had already seen the show. There are scenes (like the reunion) for example where there's this definite vibe of OMG, look at how all your favourite characters are doing....but it doesn't work for viewers like me, because I have no attachment to them.
My one main problem with the film though is that I felt there was too many subplots. Theres the most important one (her solving a murder), but then theres the corrupt police, and Weevil being framed (spoiler alert) and I felt it made the film kind of choppy.
There were other smaller complaints. A few cheesy lines/scenes. But nothing too bad. Overall, I enjoyed it.

At first I was confused at why such a pretty young would not have a single friend in high school. But then I soon figured out why. Jade Butterfield (played by Gabriella Wilde) is just completely void of personality. I just found her so bland.
The other problem I had with the movie was the fact that she was so willing to throw away college for this guy. I get this guy was supposed to be her true love and she wanted to spend every minute with him, but I just didn't feel like it sent a very good message. Plus, I can't be totally convinced what they had was true love. They were together for like 2 months. At the most. Relationships are still in the "honeymoon" phase then.
My third problem with this movie, was there was some eye-rolling worthy dialogue in the film.
Yeah....I just wouldnt recommend this.

Thought he was quite charming. And I also liked Rachel McAdams, but thought their chemistry could have been better. I was also glad that it didn't feel exactly like Rachel McAdams other time-traveling movie (The time traveler's wife). In this one he has control of when he can go back. She is not aware of his powers. In this one, he can only go back....not forward.
Anyway, I did like it....but its not a movie to put on right before bed.
