As typical, I'm not expecting much. Seems like a really obvious idea. Also I dislike Quaid.

I saw it yesterday... I liked it, it was good, but not great. Much more of a satire than a comedy

I thought it was great. It all worked quite well actually. It was amusing while still making a point.

"You make me want to be a better person. But I'm not a better person, I'm me."

 

Overall, it was pretty good, but I tend to give things that mock contemporary American culture a bit of a wide berth. One thing that bugged me about it was that some of the main actors seemed to just be re-using characters that they'd played previously: Hugh Grant's character could have easily been a transplanted-to-America version of his character from Bridget Jones' Diary, and Mandy Moore's could have easily been the older sister of her character from Saved. A good laugh, overall, though.

"In a world where more people vote for their next pop idol than their own president..."

 

Yeah, umm, imagine a world like that ;)

 

It looks like a good satire.

I guess the irony is that mandy moore was made famous by the culture they're mocking.

 

thankless bitch. Lord knows she's popular becuase of her acting skills. she annoys me more than Jessica simpson, because atleast Jessica accepts that she's a dumb blond. Instead, Mandy dyes her hair and acts "better than that". ;)

 

the concept is too obvious to be considered satirical. it's probably a bad parody of itself but I'll never know because I won't see a movie that has mandy moore and hugh grant in the same casting...until it comes out on t.v. or one of my friends rents it.

excuse me...

 

mandy moore is a good actor, for the films she's in. and she dyed her hair because that movie is based on a book.

and thats a dumb reason to hate a person.

 

out of all the popstars out there, she's one of the most respectable.

she's a good actress for unchallenging roles, like playing herself. ;)

 

she said in an interview that she prefered darker hair over blond because she didn't like being stereotyped

so that's why she kept it lol

 

i still wouldn't compare her to britney spears or jessica simspon.

she does a good job of staying out of the media

Yeah, I saw her yesterday on Conan and she seems more real than most other "pop stars". She just seems like a sweet good girl.
