I rented this movie after having read many "meh" reviews and now I can see why people were saying "meh."
It's not that this movie is bad per say...it's just really, not all that good either.
I love the actors in the cast, that's not the problem...the story is the problem, the main character is really not all that likable, in fact...if she weren't played by the charming Emilia Clark, she wouldn't be likable at all; AND, for the most part she is surrounded by some pretty unlikable people as well. Her mother, played by Emma Thompson, is irritating (I know she is supposed to be, but it does't help), her sister and she don't get along, and her boss (who seems to be one of the few somewhat interesting characters to me) vacillates between mean and nice.
So, when the twist finally comes in the plot...I rolled by eyes at it.
There were some fun moments, some charming moments...but once again, if it weren't for the actors in the cast....this movie wouldn't even get a "meh" out of me. It's really more of a 2.5...I'm being generous with 3 stars.
