Love is an ugly, terrible business practiced by fools. It'll trample your heart and leave you bleeding on the floor. And what does it really get you in the end? Nothing but a few incredible memories that you can't ever shake. Love isn't about ridiculous little words. Love is about grand gestures. Love is about airplanes pulling banners over stadiums, proposals on jumbo-trons, giant words in sky writing. Love is about going that extra mile even if it hurts, letting it all hang out there. Love is about finding courage inside of you that you didn't even know was there.
Gabe (Josh Hutcherson) is an 11 year old boy living in Manhattan, New York with his separate parents, Adam (Bradley Whitford) and Leslie (Cynthia Nixon) . He falls in love with his best friend, Rosemary (Charlie Rays), a girl with the same age. When Rosemary is going to study in a private school, Gabe has to find a way to say his feelings to her before it's too late. But will she accept his love? Directed by Mark Levin.
Those sentences I wrote in the beginning are actually quotes from the movie. This movie is really cute. It's not cheesy, it's not corny. No, just the opposite. It's really a good movie which explore your own first love. A great romantic comedy for adults and children alike. Do you remember your first love? This movie is so romantic, I can't believe that the main characters are just little kids. If the main characters are adults, I might believe it also because of the good script. But these kids really natural and really believable. Gabe is trying so hard to understand why he likes girl and why he fell in love with a girl; an opposite sex that he despised before.
When grown ups can behave like kids, I found that these kids are very poignant and very mature, even in their own ways. Let nature take its course, and let them fall in love, break their heart, move on, and making memories about their lives. Gabe is still a kid, and he still have a lot to learn. But even the adults can learn something from him, that sometimes it's okay to behave like a kid and take risks. Gabe is willing to take a chance, and let his heart get broken in little pieces -- but it's better rather than not doing anything and wondering what would happened. I love this movie, I think kids that still learning about love can watch this movie and wonder no more. And I think adults that still learning about love can watch this movie and wonder no more too.
Due to my hectic schedule, I will not be able to review all new movies every week. I apologize. I will however review some older movies from DVDs from time to time. Thank you for understanding.
Welcome to my humble weblog, a place to quench your addiction of movies. Enjoy your stay. Sometimes it's okay to be addicted to movies. PS: Beware of my brash review and language.
