The little trip to Japan in the middle was also a highlight. I loved the four sisters scene.
It does turn a little more serious and less funny after this part, but it's entertaining and doesn't wear out it's welcome even though it's over 2 hours long.
I have also got part 2 on the HD to watch as both were shown on TV within a week of each other.
Interesting idea. Did fall asleep twice watching it (admittedly was… MoreInteresting idea. Did fall asleep twice watching it (admittedly was exhausted, movie wasn't that bad!), so missed a few bits. Liked what I saw, but not sure it's a must see.

As it stands, this movie was new to me, although the plot certainly wasn't.
Poor boy falls for rich girl, and Daddy's not happy about it. Yep, seen it before, wasn't expecting anything outstanding.
Actually, I didn't expect to even like this movie, had no plans of ever actually even watching it, but I did, and surprisingly, I really enjoyed it. Something about the two leads worked very well together and I did find them believable and sweet together. I wanted things to work out for them. I would go as far as to say this movie is lovely. Must have caught me in a weak moment.
I do have to admit, some of the dialog, particularly with the mother, was hammy, though I could sympathise with her, and I understood what she meant. The dad ran into caricature a few times, particularly in the dramatic scene near the end with the son's belongings, and the dancing at the party, wtf?
Flaws aside, I really liked this, though. I'll definitely be getting this one for my collection.
Realistic? Probably not. Romantic? Totally.

It was okay, if you like musicals. Christina Aguilera is very pretty to look at and has great voice, but it gets a bit much. Story is slight. Waitress gets dream job in Burlesque bar and gets guy.. seen it all before and done better in Coyote Ugly (not Burlesque, I realise, but a similar type of story).
Cher pretty just wanted her to shut up. Could that woman look any more plastic? (sorry, really not a fan!). Kristen Bell not really in it enough .
Not that bad. Average. If you like musicals, will probably enjoy it, but I was disappointed.
Honestly couldn't get into this. Cover is so cute, movie doesn't match… MoreHonestly couldn't get into this. Cover is so cute, movie doesn't match it at all. Kind of dull toned, slow pace...well, just dull. The gay dad angle was good, but didn't care about either of the two leads. Turned it off after half hour.
Interesting. Don't really know a lot about Julian or wiki leaks, so… MoreInteresting. Don't really know a lot about Julian or wiki leaks, so this was a good introduction to his early life. He certainly had a difficult upbringing with his mum getting them involved in a cult. Then his childhood years on the run from it.
This mostly shows how he starts out as a hacker.
It also shows his relationship with his then girlfriend and becoming teenage parents.
The movie ends at this period with his first arrest, so could easily make a part two to this.
So glad I didn't buy this one. (Was tempted when I first saw it out.… MoreSo glad I didn't buy this one. (Was tempted when I first saw it out. Comedy with Tina Fey and Paul Rudd. Would have to be worth a look, right? Hmmm. Not so much). Quite dull really. Drags along, not overly funny. Just meh. Okay to have on in the background, but bland story light on laughs.
Just okay. Trashy TV movie and looks it. Entertaining for an hour and… MoreJust okay. Trashy TV movie and looks it. Entertaining for an hour and a half, but nothing that would stand up to repeat viewing.
Cast are adequate. Storyline is based on a true story and honestly it's tame for its genre. He only actually kills one girl, the rest are just assaulted. (Not that any of it is acceptable, but title implies something more dramatic if you are not familiar with the story). Not bad, and no less horrible what he did, but did lack a little something even as a TV movie. I did feel sorry also for the wife imaging how she would feel finding out her husband was like that.
