"Tired of brainless, star vehicle, rom-com candy-coated Hollywood crap? So am I! And here's why!"


The premise of "America's Sweethearts" sets us up for an inspired, lacerating, in-your-face send-up of Hollywood and silly rom-com star vehicles. Then it turns into one of them. Like a young mind full of bright ideas, originality and visio... read more

An average movie

Even though I wasn't expecting much from this flick, it still managed to disappoint me somehow. Apparently, this movie was a labor of love for Billy Crystal who wrote it years before and he was even supposed to direct this flick. I mean, there was definitely some potential and the 4 leads were all likable and charming (Julia Roberts, Billy Crystal, Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Cusack) and the suppor... read more

I avoided 'America's Sweethearts' when it was released to theaters back in 2001, thinking it would be either cutesy, stupid, or boring.

Fourteen years later, I finally watched the movie on Netflix. Lo and behold -- I thought it was cutesy, stupid, AND boring! Also MUCH too long, although I believe the running time is actually average (but I certainly felt many times while watching t... read more

Description: Gwen (Catherine Zeta-Jones) and Eddie (John Cusack) are AMERICA'S SWEETHEARTS, two wildly popular celebrities who share their love on and off the screen in this farcical romantic comedy. But a messy breakup sends Eddie to a New Age Hollywood healing center and Gwen into the arms of her current affair, a Spanish bohunk short on charm (Hank Azaria). When their relationship troubles begin to threaten their superstar celebrity status and the release of their final film together the studio heads call in legendary press agent Lee Phillips (Billy Crystal) to helm the troubled film's press junket. Julia Roberts costars as Kiki, Gwen's p ... (more)

Movies I Streamed on Netflix in 2015 (111 movies items)

"Pros: A decent supporting cast (Stanley Tucci, Seth Green, Alan Arkin, Christopher Walken); the fake movie clips shown in the first part of the (actual) movie are somewhat amusing. Cons: Drags; not very funny overall; filled with dull and/or unlikable characters; HANK AZARIA'S UGLY FAUX ACCENT! (for more, see the 'reviews' tab on my profile)"

"Despite its famous cast, the movie lacks sympathetic characters and is only funny in spurts."

“I avoided 'America's Sweethearts' when it was released to theaters back in 2001, thinking it would be either cutesy, stupid, or boring.

Fourteen years later, I finally watched the movie on Netflix. Lo and behold -- I thought it was cutesy, stupid, AND boring! Also MUCH too long, although I believe the running time is actually average (but I certainly felt many times while watching the movie like it would never, ever end).

I mean, I suppose I've seen worse; but I've also seen hundreds of films that are way better. (How annoying was Hank Azaria's fake accent, anyway? I hated the ugly, exaggerated way he kept saying "junket" like "hunket.")

This is NOT one that I'll be watching again, that much is for sure. (2/10)

I mean, it is not necessarily that the plot was lame but the execution was just really lazy, in my opinion, and within the first 5 minutes, you already know pretty much how the whole thing will end which was seriously” read more
