Elizabethtown

This is the biggest shit sammy of a movie I have seen in a long long while. I knew that reviews for it were bad, but wowza!

It is so clunky and awkward that it is umbearable. People talk in ways that no humans, talk, and end up in situations that are trying so hard to be be "quirky" that it hurts. Orlando Bloom walks through the movie totally lifeless and not expressing, that you really don't care. And Kirst Dunst seriously shoudl think about getting social services checks for being mentally retarded.

I couldn't believe how poorly the movie flowed. I would rather watch a formulaic romantic comedy starring Sandy Bullock any day over this attempt at a new take on the romantic comedy.

Grade: D- (there were a few scenes that worked, and I love me some Paula Dean who is in it)

Orlando Bloom is the worst actor out there. And why did he have an accent if he was supposed to be from Cali and Oregon... didn't realize they sounded like people from Down Under (or where ever he is from!)

I hated everything about this movie. Mostly, the tap dancing during the memorial. What? The memorial should be about the dead person not a chance to show the world how you've decided to take up tap.

That whole scene was for sure the worst part and what sealed the deal on me hating it. The burining bird, the tap dancing, an entire town mourning the death of a guy who hasn't lived there for 23 years. Whatever!

OMG! This movie was horrible, it was so bad! Poor editing, poor acting and poor fucking screenplay! Eww, I totally hated it, especially the cheesy roadtrip when he talks to the ashes and shows up at the market on the finds the girl right away! Just terrible!
