(This review may contain spoilers).
I didn’t intend to watch this movie at the cinema, but it turned out the film I was going to see with my Grandma was actually at a time for mothers with babies. So this was only twenty minutes after the other film was due to start.
I’m quite glad I had the chance to see this film, though. I thought it looked amusing from the preview and it was a good film throughout.
I found the use of the labels for the different characters quite interesting, particularly since some of the labels used were clearly not expected ones. I found Bianca to be a really intriguing, well-rounded character. I felt sorry for her at times during this movie… and there were other moments I wound up cringing at what was going on.
Although it was sad to see that Bianca was so desperate to change herself, I enjoyed her interactions with Wesley and it was good to see that there was real tension between the two of them. There were also some quite sweet scenes with them in… as well as the amusing moments.
I particularly liked Bianca’s friendship with Jess and Casey. Although there was a lot where they weren’t interacting, it was good to see how things ended up with them by the end. And I especially liked the way Casey was no-nonsense, in stark contrast to Jess and Bianca.
There were quite a few moments in this film where I found myself laughing out loud. The conflicts the characters were facing came across as real and I cared about what was going on with them. There were parts of this movie that were cliched, but it was still really good and entertaining to watch. I would probably be quite willing to watch this movie again in the future.
