|2008 USA, Germany My Mom's New Boyfriend|
it's kind of scary when Meg Ryan smiles but other than that she looks good and can still pull off her Megness like no one else. There are a few scenes that are pure Meg ... When Antonio is fawning over how hot she looks, she responds "Yeah! I know!" Only Meg could do that. Another scene she gets mad at him and throws a fit. Antonio just watches until its over and is speechless (so was I) but for a genuinely soft-spoken "Wow." it was nice to see those scenes.
Pleasant surprise was how good Antonio looked. I've always liked him in comedies.
That's what these kinds of movies are all about, right? Just how much we get to enjoy seeing our favorite celebrities.
There's a light twist at the end, so everybody can be happy. Upon reflection it made sense of a few previous scenes but I didn't see it coming. That's cool
