Good premise. Nice actors. Worth watching.
Parts of the film seem like unnecessary pain and suffering for the sake of it, but that’s okay. It’s to be expected of a drama chick flick. It’s done well enough to get you sucked into their world and invested emotionally.
The script contained two slights against conservatives that irked me and seemed unnecessary. So I did some research comparing the book with the film. More often than not, my hunch is proven right after sleuthing around. For example, when a “based on a true story” script randomly changes the ethnicity of real person to fit a diversity quota. But in this instance, it looks like the book author is just as bat sh*t as J.K. Rowling, so the script changes weren’t a big deal…
Conclusion? It’s hard to get upset at Hollywood for injecting politics unnecessarily when the author is doing it herself. I doubt she was upset about the storyline changes.
Overall, it was a cute movie and the chemistry between the cast made it worth the watch. Support it if you’re not a stickler about giving money to leftists.
