Best movie of the year!!! Kebs na sa Tree of Life, this should have won Cannes Best Picture, LOL!
Of course, I exaggerate, but I’ve been wanting to watch a movie, shut off my brain and just have fun, things which I failed to experience in the awful Something Borrowed. (Perhaps it’s time these roles are relegated to the kids.) It’s nothing like Clueless, a movie which catapulted itself to popdom greatness, but it’s a simple, wholesome teen movie that works—one that does not involve sex and fart jokes, murderers and molested pies.
It’s a preposterous plot, with other preposterous situations, but what’s not to like about Paris and mistaken identities and Blair Waldorf?! It’s also funny how, when the trio of Grace (Selena Gomez), Emma (Katie Cassidy) and Meg (Leighton Meester) flew from Paris to Monte Carlo, our group went into a flurry of whispers:
“Sa’n nga ba ang Monte Carlo?”
“Di ba kailangan ng passport dun?”
“Mukhang sa France din.”
“Hanep sa accent.”
“Ang sarap nya!” LOL.
I weakly offered Monaco, which my googling this morning proved to be a correct suggestion. (Meron kasing Monaco sa Ms. World, lol.) In any case, it is still beside France, though I assume they should have still surrendered their passports.
There are gorgeous gowns, jewelry, hotel suites and men but unfortunately, you don’t really get a full-on tourism advertisement for Monte Carlo, except if you count rock formations on the beach. Grace’s doppelganger, the rich heiress Cordelia Winthrop-Scott, also makes a minimal appearance, which is too bad because she looked like such a fun character to exploit.
For that, I want a sequel 😛
