alOng came Polly
May 24, 2009
When I first think of a romantic comedy, I’ll be expecting to laugh first of all, then it needs to have a love story, declarations of love, 2 people that are going to be in love but don’t accept it, or have a big problem that separates them along the way, but at then end one realizes that they can’t be without the other, so he goes chases the other and declares his/her love. So, most of this actually happened on the movie, because I did laugh, specially when Reuben goes after Polly and asks her to stay, and eats peanuts and throws them on the floor, or when he goes to eat at polly’s appartment and he goes to the bathroom.
In the writing, it could’ve been better by being more creative and taking a few more risks in the storytelling.
That said, Stiller was in his usual hilarious roll, wich was exposing the fussy, hygiene-obsessed Reuben to the dirtiest possible situations.
