I was reluctant because it was going to be another princess film except live action. Wrong. It was pretty funny at times, making fun of a lot of the things that make up Disney princess movies. Plus it was full of references to other Disney movies which was cool.
I wasn't really interested in this because I wasn't really a fan of Patrick Dempsey (I've never watched Grey's Anatomy). But I finally gave in and watched it with my sis and liked it. It's kind of like Deuce Bigalo in the sense that Dempsey starts pimping himself out to lonely housewives.
I'm not really a fan of new horror/scary movies but my friend insisted we watch this on Halloween and I ended up liking it. It's nothing innovative, but it had a good jump/cringe/really-want-to-look-away factor (for me anyways).
I didn't watch this because it just didn't look that interesting (and I have no interest in fashion), but I watched it because Anne Hathaway and Stanley Tucci are in it and I liked. PLUS, this began my new love affair with Emily Blunt, who is awesome.
I'll say this now because it pretty much applies for the next four movies: I had a vendetta against Tom Cruise. I don't know why but I just did not want to watch anything he was in except "The Outsiders." Needless to say, I've grown out of that and am giving Tom a fair chance now. So these 4 movies (War of the Worlds, Minority Report, Mission Impossible, and Vanilla Sky) have become some of my favs.
I actually wanted to see this when I first heard about it, but then my bro got on it and talked about it 24/7, and kept bugging me about when I was going to watch it, blah blah blah. So I didn't watch it just because of my brother until about a year later. I really love Sigourney Weaver. And I love Sam Worthington, but that's a different list.
These are some movies that I watched reluctantly but ended up really liking them. The reasons vary of why I was reluctant to see them.
