This is a very f–ing funny movie, and if anything in this sentence offends you, you probably shouldn't see it.
Catherine Heigl and Gerard Butler are definitely movie stars and this comedy has its moments for sure, but it's also a sloppy piece of work. A lot of the scenes are flat, as are several of the takes.
This movie is beautifully photographed and richly imagined but it leaves me with a nagging question: have the Harry Potter movies outgrown the children they were originally created for?
When Sue and I were leaving the theater just about everybody was complaining that the movie was too long. Some thought 20 minutes, one person said an hour. I didn't have any real problem with the length, but some of you might. It's an interesting notion to try to combine comedy and drama in the same flick and I kind of got caught up in that. I guess I could have used a hair less drama.
