LIFE OR SOMETHING LIKE IT

 

This is a romantic-comedy-date-
chick flick with many dramatic moments.

Angeline Jolie is the center of the film, and I enjoyed her excellent performance, which saved the film as much as it could for me.

Although this movie is no masterpiece and has a tired plot, I still found it watchable and managed to see how a person would feel if you had only a week to live.

If you're in the mood for a no-brainer, (and who isn't?) then Angeline Jolie stars in this chick flick thinly disguised as a romantic comedy.

A shallow, self-centered, career newscaster finds love and discovers how to enjoy life.

It's as empty and predictable as it sounds. I guess they just don't make 'em like they used to.

Life or Something Like It is a movie that can't be taken too seriously to enjoy it. You need to let your imagination become fully engaged for this comic-book-like self-deprecating romantic comedy.

The story is mostly about throwing together a bunch of old-fashioned corny expressions regarding the loneliness of ambitious women.

The whole production is unnatural and artificial but it's cheerful nonsense from lighthearted beginning to obvious end.
