Two chick flicks I watched in the last few days

August 15, 2015

I don’t know if these two movies are actually classified as chick flicks, but I’m going to call them that anyway. I suppose they are romantic comedies (which are often considered chick flicks anyway).

I usually love these types of movies, but unfortunately I wasn’t a huge fan of these. Here are my thoughts.


A case of you (2013)

Main actors: Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood
Storyline: A young writer tries to impress a girl he meets by studying her Facebook profile in an attempt to become her dream guy. He finds himself in a real mess when she falls for him and he has to keep up the act.

My thoughts: I watched the trailer and I thought it looked like a movie that could be quite funny. I’m also a fan of Justin Long, and if I’m a fan of an actor, I’ll usually give the movie a shot. Unfortunately I wasn’t impressed by the movie at all.

I thought the acting was poor, the storyline got way too cheesy, and some things just didn’t make sense. I don’t know, I just don’t think either of them played their characters very well in this one. Perhaps they were just not right for the parts. It also sort of seemed like a movie from the 90s in a way, even though the movie was only released in 2013.

Playing it cool (2014)

Main actors: Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan
Storyline: A screenwriter working on a script for a romantic comedy is having a hard time. He’s never been in love and he spends his time ruining every relationship he has. He then meets a girl who captures his heart. Problem is that she’s already engaged.

My thoughts: This one was definitely not as bad as ‘A case of you’, but it still wasn’t great. I quite liked Chris Evans in this movie, but I felt like there was too much random stuff happening. It’s hard to explain without ruining the movie, but his heart was portrayed by a smoking man for example. I thought that was just a bit strange.

Topher Grace played Chris’ best friend. I like Topher Grace, so he made the movie a bit better in my eyes. There were a few giggle moments, but no laughing out loud or anything. So I’d give this movie a pass.
