Absolutely loved it first time I saw it.
A rewatch a decade later has not been quite so kind - it's definitely somewhat silly in its plot (funny i never noticed that the motivations actually made no sense). But it's still a fun, trashy watch, and even better now it has the nostalgia thing happening. I pretty much wanted every outfit Piper wears. I don't really know what that says about me. It's not like they were meant to be fashionable outfits. She's quite a geek initially.
Piper Perabo really was a good actress. It's a shame she's not in much the days. Coyote Ugly is still an all time favourite of mine.

I actually grew up in a suburb not unlike Sunnyvale, so theses caricatures are not unbelievable to me.
Though it's exaggerated, there really are people like this out there and I think that's why I find myself watching it. It's like a love hate thing.
I loathe it, but I relate to it.
Need I add, I couldn't get out of "my" Sunnyvale quick enough. I am not, and never was a bogan. In that way, it is unfair to lump all state housing people into this category and I wonder about the ethics of making this show.
This is realistic, ugly, scummy people. Not characters you would care about at all. Just bottom of the barrel, vile human beings. It's not funny so much as one big cringe.
I rated it fairly highly as it is successful for what it is trying to portray. Except for Frankie. No way he would get all those girls to do all those things. I think ...
I couldn't say if it is funny. Not to me, it's not.
It does drag out too long at the end and goes beyond ridiculous, though.

The story is a young woman, played by Krysten Ritter (I really am starting to like her a lot as an actress), has returned from college to her small town home to care for her younger brother and sister after the death of her parents.
She meets a guy who is passing through, and the damaged pair form a relationship.
It's not a fairytale, and nothing amazing happens, but it is a sweet movie.
Very brief at 80 minutes. I was sorry to see it end.
I really felt for all these characters and believed them.

Unfortunately they didn't come in until after xmas, and I'm not sure if it's just that the mood had passed, or they are actually just that bad!!
Idea for this one was interesting - dad fed up with all the technology and not communicating confiscates all the phones, laptops etc for three days. He then also blacks out the windows, shuts off the power and then suddenly the movie doesn't feel very festive.
I read ahead some spoilers and discovered it's actually a Christian film and it gets preachy by the end. I switched it off before then.
Not my thing.
