Confessions of a SAP

John Goodman and Joan Cusak. Really. When have they ever been in a bad movie. They played second fiddle but they were perfectly wonderful. Isla Fisher was beautiful and funny all at the same time. And this Hugh Dansey. Never heard of this guy before but he was like a young Hugh Grant who I don't care what anyone says, is hilarious. Of course the young and the stupid gave this a bad rating. That is because the only comedy they understand is someone who is dumb. Dumb and Dumber. This is smart comedy with a flare. Good family fun. Just make sure there are some onions around to blame for the tears toward the end.

One of those bad RomComs

I actually tried hard to like this movie, I really did. The thing is, RomComs are generally bad with a few gems. It's super weird since Romance by itself is very good, and Comedy by itself is really good. For some reason, they just can't mesh well together. This is because bad RomComs are either super annoying, or they go from RomCom to a torture porn fest. It's actually unsettling.

Without further ado, let's jump into this review.

Rebecca is the opposite of Andy from The Devil Wears Prada. She is a girl, who has a passion for fashion, working at some random gardening place with a dream of working for this huge fashion magazine. Unfortunately her job goes to Alicia, and she has to settle for a job at a financial magazine (under the umbrella as her favorite magazine if I remember correctly). The thing is, her job is writing a column about giving people financial advise when she's a shopaholic that's thousands of dollars into debt because of her habit. This movie then turns into a torture porn that doesn't make any sense:

Why does Alicia hate her so much? They hardly even met, and as far as Alicia goes, Rebecca is Luke's co-worker. Despite all of that, she literally got pleasure from seeing Rebecca get embarrassed at the event. It's not even logical.

Derek, the credit card guy, is being a creepy stalker for no reason what so ever. Why harass her? Doesn't he have a life or any other victims to hunt down?

The most disgusting scene was when Derek stalked Rebecca on her show and asked her those humiliating questions about debt on national television. This is when RomComs go from slapstick humor, to full on torture. Nothing is funny about a girl being torn to shreds on national television and having to fight back tears. Take in mind that the only crime in this movie that Rebecca has done is shop excessively and lied, yet she gets more torture than a girl who makes fun of other girls and her own career and a girl that played puppet master to some random girl she just met just to get an ego boost. I'm done.

Screams low budget

I wanted to like this movie, I really did, but for all the big names, it screams low budget. The underlying concept of addiction is what I fell for. I like the serendipitous elements, like she ends up working for "Successful Savings" by accident and manages to find a niche (and a handsome boss who falls for her), but I couldn't get into it. There are scenes that I can't even watch just because they're boring or pointless, namely the dinner and ball scenes. I think it's more the quality than the story line. Addiction to anything is a serious illness that can bleed into all areas of your life. They covered that well, but the acting comes across as fake and it's not even realistic. Yes, I get that it's a movie, and not meant to be real-life, but still. Even if they wanted to use big name actors, the quality makes it seem fake and corny rather than something people actually struggle with.
