I loved it too.  I was really not looking forward to seeing it, I hate those sort of movies and at first I thought it was going to be really stupid but I ended up loving it. Could relate to a lot and laughed so much, felt really good after seeing it and dh and I felt a bit closer if that makes sense.
I'm early 40's.

eta absolutely loved the bit where they get called into the principals office!! bahaha so dh and I. blush.gif

Real 38 here (as is DH). Very much resonated (apart from the fighting, we don't do that).

Also made us scared to think what 3yo DD will be like when she is 13.

DH also double checked the Implanon was still in after the movie and double checked how long it lasted for LoL!

Loved it. I am only 34 but having just separated after a long marriage and parenting a teenager I was nodding and clapping all the way through. It was great.

I liked it a lot, but it seemed quite long for a rom-com and thought it could of been bit shorter as I was getting restless after 2hrs

Hated it! it was so slow, and had absolutely no plot line. It was a few slapstick moments and a whole lot of filler.

Really ??

I'm with Stellajoy. Thought it was terrible. Maybe my expectations were too high.


#13 Scootaloo

Posted 25 January 2013 - 06:20 PM

I'll admit it did drag along towards the end and could have been shorter but still enough funny moment to keep both DH and I happy.

And the add on bit at the end with the extra scene from the principle's office was worth getting to the end for.

I would rate this as one of the worst of 2012's movies. The main characters were so selfish and self absorbed and whinging about not having any money and then (and THEN!) letting a father continue to sponge off them and going on a maryjane munchie feast in an expensive resort was not very funny. I found that the children were better characters and i did not understand the grief given to the biological dad of the female main character. The main characters were so loathsome that what they did was not amusing and in fact was quite sad.

I have been very disappointed with the movies from 2012. Django i think has been the best so far.

Agree, the out take at the end was the funniest part of the movie. I liked the movie but wouldn't jump up and down about it. Would have been better with a different lead actress.

There was only a handful of people left that saw the out take thing at the end and we all walked out laughing to a line of people waiting to see it......you could see them thinking...oh good , it must be really funny....Yes, the last 2mins was.

Saw it last night. It's funny but didn't like the lead actress and she didn't have a connection with her DH and they were both overacting in some parts but pretty good and I can see how heaps of ppl could relate.

I agree with this. Felt like it kept going on and on. DH and I were nearly falling asleep by the end of it.

I thought it was too long too. I could relate to some of it, but I thought the relationships were a bit far fetched and overblown. I also thought the lead female character was a stupid git for knowing so little about what was going on with her own financial situation.

Although I did find parts of it very funny I did spend a lot of time thinking 'are people really this stupid?' and 'why are they all so self-absorbed?' I did like the principal scene.

I know I am a prude, so don't lambast me, but I thought that the swearing was over the top and do people talk like that all the time, especially in front of their children. unsure.gif
