GenXGirl’s Film Reviews

510 Films have been rated or reviewed by GenXGirl.

Moulin RougeMoulin Rouge (2001)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) A dazzling fantasy world, and love tragedy, the set design, costumes, and of course music, all cumulate into an original theatrical spectacle.
DVD $20 $15
Christmas with the KranksChristmas with the Kranks (2004)
2 stars (Good Try) Christmas comedy about a couple who cancel all Christmas festivities to save money for a cruise ship vacation instead. Only grabbed my attention at the end when a mysterious character enters the frame. Strange & sadly lacking in real humour.
Love ActuallyLove Actually (2003)
3 stars (Good Enough) Multi–storied Christmas romantic comedy/drama, sure to put you in the festive frame of mind, with an all–star cast. All the right twists and turns to demand your undivided attention. Great the first time, but nothing I'm dying to revisit.
DVD $19.95 | Blu-Ray $19.95
Notting HillNotting Hill (1999)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) Slightly funny in places, while slightly nauseating overall (possibly due to an awful soundtrack), it will possibly depend on how much of a Julia Roberts fan you are as to your opinion. Mine is that it's only slightly better than rubbish.
DVD $19.95
Bridget Jones: The Edge of ReasonBridget Jones: The Edge of Reason (2004)
2 stars (Good Try) An insecure Bridget believes her now boyfriend Mr Darcy is being unfaithful. And when Daniel arrives back on the scene things go very pear–shaped. Silly plot, and nothing fresh is offered in this predictable and disappointing sequel.
DVD $39.95, $49.95
Bridget Jones's DiaryBridget Jones's Diary (2001)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) A sort of modern retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice – the dilemmas of a 30–something single girl living/working in London, as she juggles career with romance, friends and family. Feel–good romantic comedy with some substance.
DVD $24.95 | Blu-Ray $29.95
Wedding Singer, TheWedding Singer, The (1998)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Occassionally hilarious flashback to the 80's, a wanna–be rock–star falls for a waitress who's about to marry a complete toad. Worth seeing for "Love Stinks" as well as other original gems that sum up that cringeful era of music so perfectly.
DVD $14.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95
Music and LyricsMusic and Lyrics (2006)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Better–than–most rom coms, a washed–up 80's boy–band pop singer teams up with his quirky home–helper to write a song for his come–back performance. Any woman who's ever idolised an 80's pop–star will love it.
DVD $19.95 $14.95 | Blu-Ray $24.95
About a BoyAbout a Boy (2002)Aro Favourite
4 stars (Very Good) Self–absorbed wealthy bachelor meets lonely unpopular teen – the pair form an unlikely friendship that enhances each of their lives. Original feel–good film, and a role that Grant was born to play.
DVD $20 $15
Among GiantsAmong Giants (1998)
3 stars (Good Enough) Atop gigantic electrical towers, in the Yorkshire countryside, romance blossoms between the crew employed to paint them. A quiet film that slowly pulls you in, and quite stunning camera work.
