Yeah, no.

I stopped at 30 min. Why? I'm supposed to believe that a life-long criminal who steals money, peoples post, stalks a woman and arranges a fake 'rescue' so he could get close to her is somehow romantic? That this creep - and he's a creep - will magically become saved and a completely different person? No. I'm willing to suspend belief in some things for a movie but this is asking entirely too much.

The U.S. Postal Service version of "Message in a Bottle"
Verified purchase
I liked "No Postage Necessary." It is a sweet film. The lead actors are all appealing, even the villainous FBI agent, and all portray their characters convincingly. The script is witty and cleverly written. My knock with the film is its 104-minute length. It's long by about 20 minutes so It drags a bit. The plot of "No Postage Necessary" is pretty far-fetched, but could have worked if the director didn't vacilate between campy presentation and a dramatic one. My suspension of disbelief was paralyzed by this wavering. You'll see the parallels with Kevin Costner's "Message in a Bottle" right away. That's not a bad thing.

Painfully dreadful and Dreadfully Painful
Verified purchase
Don't watch this film it is a time-sucking crap-fest. I would call what I write next a SPOILER ALERT but you can't spoil garbage.
The main character is a career criminal commits multiple federal crimes including cybercrimes and impersonating a postal worker all to rip off. The love interest is a widow with a 5 year old both of whom are suffering severe depression yet nobody intervenes.
Protective military father of said love interest sees the career criminal and mentally says "Hey, this broke criminal loser is the perfect guy to let worm his way into my depressed daughter's life under false pretenses."

Mix in a bad script, dialog, directing, and let the magic unfold.

Then for bonus points, they made the first have of the film about the corrupt criminal justice system, propagandizing, and anti-industrialists destroying the planet including making a big deal about Monsanto and GMO foods. Monsanto gets away with destroying the planet BECAUSE the US government protects it. Yet in the end, the main character joins the military to work for the same people who support Monsanto? Really?

Don't click play on this. I warn you.

A Very Sweet Movie!
Verified purchase
I must confess, I bought this movie after becoming a huge fan of George Blagden from the television series "Versailles" and was interested to see other characters he'd portrayed. For anyone who's seen Versailles, George's character "Sam" in the movie is about as far removed from King Louis XIV as you can get, but he does such a great job portraying Sam, a guy who didn't get the best start in life, but who is really a nice guy deep down inside, and wants to do the right thing. The ending was not I expected it to be, but I really liked it better than the cliché ending boy meets girl, things go great, things go bad, boy loses girl, boy gets girl in the end. Real life is not that tidy and it's nice to see a movie where it isn't all wrapped up neatly in a bow at the end as you would expect it to be. I came away from the movie liking George Blagden even more than I did before and I hope that this is only the beginning of a brilliant acting career for him. I absolutely loved the movie....

Terrible
Verified purchase
I looked it up and as I suspected, a man wrote this. Which means that this supposed romantic comedy is anything but. It is dark and depressing and sad and makes zero sense. The "hero" (and I use the term loosely) is a convicted felon hacker who steals mail in order to take birthday money out of cards and comes across the letters the heroine writes to her dead husband. The "hero" then stalks the heroine, continues stealing her mail and then stages an accident so that he can meet her. It's all very, very, very creepy and disturbing. Then more hacker stuff happens with the FBI and his parole officer and about forty minutes into it, I had to stop watching as it was obvious it wasn't going to get any better.

I don't know who this movie is supposed to appeal to, but it was listed in my recommendations for romantic comedies and Amazon should work to remedy that as soon as possible.

George Blagden
Verified purchase
I bought this out curiosity. Mr. Blagden was the lead actor in the series "Versailles". I wanted to see him playing a different setting in a movie. For me, I had a hard time watching the movie because all I could see was him in "Versailles" dressed up in in his costumes. So it's me that has the problem not the movie. I need to watch it again in order to see him in a different charactor.
I found the soundtrack on Amazon Music. George sings on a duet. I must say he is positively an excellent vocalist and guitar player. The soundtrack is excellent & I would encourage you to purchase it! Normally I find movie soundtracks worthless. But it's not this way with this movie. It has a Celtic a slight rhythm on many intros into some songs.

No Postage Necessary has a unique story line that kept my interest all the way to the end. I wish the ending was a little different but it is what it is. I enjoy a really good movie and this is a really good movie. I thought the acting was spot on. I almost didn't watch it because of the over all 3 star rating. But that would have been my loss. I highly recommend this movie.

Worth Seeing
Verified purchase
Although many people gave this movie a low star rating, I watched it to the end and was glad to see that the guy is goal-oriented and joins the military. He believes in himself enough to change himself, so he has a chance to win Josie in the end. Yes, he is a terrible criminal at the beginning, but he has a complete overhaul. I love to see a restoration of character!
