A one star rating is way too generous

When I saw that this movie featured Meg Ryan and Antonio Banderas, I had high hopes, and the plot seemed interesting enough, so I figured it would be a good watch. However, the film was so poorly written, directed and filmed that I quickly lost interest and simply could not force myself to suffer through it any longer. The acting was horrible, emotionless, and unconvincing. The director had neither vision nor creativity, and Meg Ryan seemed to be either inebriated or completely drugged out. Try as I may, I simply cannot, for the life of me, find one positive thing to say about this film, and therefore will not recommend it, except maybe as a non-violent, though extremely effective, method of torture.

This movie is absolutely horrible and should never have been made public. It should, however, become required viewing for anyone who seeks a career in the film industry as an example of how NOT to make a movie and end your career before it begins. Well what do you know...I guess I did find one good use for it after all.

lame... so lame...

don't waste your money, this movie isn't believable whatsoever, the main guy's girlfriend character is ridiculous and I kept waiting for a new girl to show up for him to like. Everyone is so mean to this guy - the characters have no depth.
I thought this would be a funny movie but it isn't funny at all. Seriously, don't rent it or buy it. When it's free then you can see why you're glad you didn't buy/rent it.
I don't like leaving negative reviews but even watching it with like 10 mins to go, I wouldn't recommend it.

Fun Romantic Comedy ~ a little weird to watch an oddball cast
Verified purchase
Meg Ryan is much too old to take on these fluffy scattered brain roles. Meg looks a mess, hair and flopping around behavior. The characters are quite shallow and predictable. Tom Hanks son looks so much like him, all I kept thinking of the movie you got mail ~ and Meg and Tom had him as their son. Antonio Banderas, is much a too seasoned actor for this role, and again ill cast. Overall movie is only for those passing the time, while doing a hobby at home. I would not recommend as a must see, it is a movie that will put you to sleep. Too bad great actors taking on these hokey roles sigh! :(

Horrible waste of time with bad acting
Verified purchase
Awful. The first half of the movie was done in short little clips. It was like something I would have shot on my own on my phone. It got worse from that point on. Not any part of the movie was realistic at all. I've never seen Meg Ryan act so poorly. Almost every scene was over acted on her part. At dinner she was acting drunk the second they handed her a drink and she hadn't even put it to your mouth yet. And speaking of her mouth... what in the world was that all about? They had her plastered with bright red lipstick smeared on making her look like the Joker in Batman. Seriously what was that all about?

If you have nothing at all to do and it's raining outside and your entire house is clean... I still say you should find something else to do rather than watch this movie. It was just bad.

OK for the most part except for Collin Hanks' character...

This movie would have done better if it continued as a light-hearted comedy. However, whoever wrote for Collin Hanks couldn't help but drag it down. His initial overreaction walking in on his mother set the tone. The other FBI guys making light of things just couldn't pick it up. He became a downer to the movie. And by the way...why DID he HAVE to stay at her house???

I pretty much like Antonio Banderas in almost everything he's done, and Meg isn't bad here either. Try as they might, they just couldn't offset Hanks.

Seriously...why didn't they cut at least 10 minutes of the pain???

Finally...WHY did they NEED to location this as Shreveport? Anyone who has been there knows this isn't Shreveport.

My Mom's New Boyfriend is A GREAT Movie
Verified purchase
OMD! Ever-doting son Henry played by Colin Hanks is an FBI agent who cannot stop spying on mom. When he comes to stay with her for a while he discovers that his mother 'Matty.' played by Meg Ryan has finally discovered her center, and transformed into a Hot Girl, who discovers Living LIfe, not "staying home all the time." Everyone around him senses he is overzealous in his protection of his mother, The actors in this movie make it a hoot, keep watching after the end, it shows how much fun they had making this movie #Art #Humor

I usually enjoy Meg and Antonio for the quirky and loveable humor
Verified purchase
Unfortunately--and this may be superficial--the plastic surgery on Meg's face (plumped lips, etc) has made a mask of what was an expressive and vibrant personality. So that she looks strained and artificial in virtually every scene. Her co-actors are, like us viewers, made tense and uncomfortable by Meg's constant grimace in lieu of a smile...and that tension takes the form of actors in a High School play...a poor High School Play. Crazy as it sounds, if she'd not had the operation, this would have been a charming, lighthearted movie, much like her pairing with Tom Hanks in You've Got Mail. Putting Tom Hank's son in this movie echoes the attempt. But it is hard to tell if Hanks' son is any good at acting since most of his lines are with Meg's wooden delivery, which makes his equally stiff.

Fun...Quirky...Romantic Comedy (of sorts)!
Verified purchase
I loved the quirkiness, the actors , and the fun story! It's nice to occasionally see movies that wander off the beaten path a bit :) If you don't mind that and your movies don't have to be always Oscar worthy, you'll probably enjoy the journey this takes you on :) If you have to have everything more main stream, perfectly acted, and tied together nicely with a little bow on top, you probably won't...maybe pass on this, and watch The Notebook again ;) Cheers to the former group!
