First of all, before I tell you how I really feel about this flick, The Kingsman received mixed reviews. A lot of the critics loved it. I was not one of those people. It was a very long movie. The fight scenes were extremely graphic. If I wanted graphic, I would have gone next door and watched Shades of Grey!
So what do I know?
On Sunday, snowbound day, I had a mission in mind. I was going to pick a chick flick to watch On Demand if it was the last thing I was going to do. I couldn't believe that The Rewrite was one of the options, considering it was just released in the theaters. Jackpot!
The Rewrite is exactly what you would expect - predictable and charming. Hugh Grant plays his usual self-depreciating character that he plays in all of his movies. Marisa Tormei is believable as his love interest. The years have been kind to both of them.
The Rewrite won't win any Oscars, but it was a great escape movie for a snowy day.
Were you one of the millions to see Shades of Grey?
Would love to hear your review!
