(This review may contain spoilers).
This film is one my siblings and I watched when we were really young. It’s a really entertaining feel-good film. There are a lot of comedy moments in this and a large amount of actors I recognised.
This film did a good job of having the plot contrast with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. I really like it as a movie. Some of the songs are really good and there are a lot of really amusing moments in this.
The scenes in the forest were really quite beautifully done, I felt. I also felt that Berke didn’t really seem to have many different facial expressions. I’ve seen the actor who plays him in a different film, so I don’t think it’s that he’s a bad actor… but it was strange that, for the first ten minutes, he was only narrating and didn’t actually speak ‘in-character-in-present’ at all.
I liked a lot of the characters in this film… but I really didn’t like Striker and I found his accent to be quite annoying. It was cool to see actors I recognise from films made later.
There were quite a few laugh-out-loud moments in this and I found myself able to quote a lot of the lines from this film. It’s got some nice songs in it and a good storyline. Not a terribly original plot… but it’s definitely an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours. And it’s one of my favourite romantic comedy films.
