The twist with Molly Gunn is that she is the daughter of a rock 'n' roll legend, guitarist Tommy Gunn. Her parents were killed in a plane crash when she was about Ray's age and she has been living off the residuals. In her apartment there is a shrine in which all of her father's guitars are displayed, including the one on which he wrote his biggest hit, "Molly Smiles," the song that Molly can no longer bear to here. Molly might be spoiled, but she has a kind heart and not a mean bone in her body. When her accountant steals all of her money and disappears she has her friends, Ingrid (Marley Shelton) and Huey (Donald Faison), who stay true and try to help her survive in the real world (I liked not having to do deal with her friends forgetting her now that she is broke).Read more ›
This is an OK movie, not great, but not bad either, the ending sums it all up perfectly, and redeems the movie a little better. I found Dakota Fanning's character extremely annoying, health conscious, shows signs of OCD and precocious! She gets better towards the end of the movie. (She comes across in the extras as having a very old head on young shoulders, which I suppose is to be expected in that business. You do wanna slap at times!) Also Jesse Spencer's accent, is it Australian, or is it English? (Hasn't he grown up since Billy Kennedy in Neighbours? Er, not really!) Brittany's best friends in the movie, aren't really best friends at all, and their characters are not very well developed.
Brittany Murphy plays these characters very well, that she's done in most of her movies, and you can quite imagine that she doesn't have struggle, as the characters are pretty much her! One of her roles that aren't 'her' so to speak is Daisy in Girl, Interrupted. She's apparently really different in Clueless, but I've never seen that!
You'd be forgiven for mistaking the fact this movie is all about a romance between Jesse's & Brittany's characters. In fact, he has very little to do with her, apart from a couple of scenes. There's a lot more to their 'relationship' that was cut, and is featured in the deleted scenes, including some dodgy looking bedroom scenes.
Everything about this film screamed COMEDY. The DVD cover. The trailer (swinging door!). The leading lady. The title. The tagline 'They're about to teach each other how to act their age'.Read more ›
I watch it whenever I need a boost of love.
