Good on Paper [Movie Review]

Good on Paper [Movie Review] | Oh my. That is one phrase that I really don't like hearing when I present anything to anyone.

Of course I was immediately drawn to watching it - and it is a comedy too. Will it look good on paper too, as per its title?

Andrea is a 34 years old stand up comedian who puts her so-called career first and love wasn't a priority.

She applies for a role in movie, but turns down by the production as one of close competitors gets the part. She meets Dennis, a nerd at the airport who recognises her.

Slowly, Dennis charms her and makes her put herself first. She starts thinking about their future together, with Dennis being a Yale-graduate hedge fund manager and all. 

She accepts Dennis into her circle, as her friend first. 

Her best friend, Margo doesn't trust Dennis as he seems too good to be true.

Is Dennis really a true person or just a scenery - beautiful from afar but gets messier as you're nearing it?

MY REVIEW

Plot: 4.5/ 5.0 It is a very straight-forward movie - based on mostly true stories - it says. Well, the plot actually happens in real live. 

To a friend of mine - in fact. She got married to a guy that she met just because she doesn't want to be called spinster. A month before her marriage, the guy disappeared and only appeared two weeks before the date. He told her that he don't want to get married because he was not attracted to her. He just played along all this while just to please the girl. Huhu. 

In the end? They got married and divorced not a year after. 

No fake love will stand through the test of truth and time.

Cast: 4.6/ 5.0 Very funny actors and I have a feeling they were actually playing their own part in real life.

Will I watch it again: Not intentionally but whenever I need a good laugh and fell good movie, this could be the one.

The pictures are taken from multiple sources on the Internet. Thank you.

  7. Menarik jugak jalan ceritanya nih. Dari apa yang Rawlins review cerita ni bagus dan ada ada pengajaran tentang percintaan dan perhubungan walaupun ia lebih kepada cerita komedi.
