Story Analysis & Ratings:
Lucy says: 5 Pops ~ One of my favorite feel-good movies of all time, and it even stands up to our gimlet eye. Wonderfully structured, incredibly funny (with the exception of some stuff that was tonally off), and oddly warm. Fabulous movie.
Lucy’s rating breakdown: Structure: 5, Comedy: 4, Romance: 5
Jenny says: 5 Pops ~ I love this movie the way I love my poker-playing clams from Florida. Sometimes something is so right you don’t care that other people think it’s wrong. Loses a comedy point for mean-spirited fat jokes because they break the tone of the story. And because they’re awful.
Jenny’s rating breakdown: Structure: 5, Comedy: 4, BRomance: 5
