I wanted it to be good.,
This review is from: Like Crazy (Amazon Video)
I really wanted this movie to be good. I was holding off watching it because I thought it was going to be a cute, inde chick flick and couldn't bear torturing my husband to watch it with me. Well, I finally watched it. In the beginning, I thought I had made a good choice, that it was a cute love story about a British girl and an American guy. But man this movie went down the toilet real quick. It's one of those movies I wish I could unwatch because it gave me one of those crappy, no good, need to take a shower kind of feelings. I agree with the reviewer that said that "Love and Selfishness Can Not Coexist" and that "Most romantic movies ignore the fact that the feeling that comes with "falling in love", is not real love and is always temporary." I only continued to watch it (when it made a turn for the worse) because I was just hoping the movie would turn itself around and the characters would stop cheating on each other and actually end up at least liking each other again...I was hoping that the rolling credits were just a joke and the real ending would happen eventually... Not to mention, it provides a terrible message for people who want to be in a "happy relationship," married or not. Awful movie...this is an hour and 30 minutes of a waste of time.

You write that the movie provides a terrible message for people who want to be in a 'happy relationship', married or not. This is a movie about the first love of a particular couple. The viewer might ask themselves whether the relationship should continue or be abandoned. In doing so, they might consider the characters involved: well protected only children. Among the opportunities offered to the girl was a serious appreciation of whiskey. As ever, our receptivity determines the value of the messages we are exposed to.
