There's a right way to be single, a wrong way to be single, and then...there's Alice. Two strangers stuck in Manhattan for the night grow into each other's most trusted confidants when an evening of unexpected adventure forces them to confront their fears and take control of their lives. One weekend away together with their significant others proves who really belongs together and who doesn't.
New York City is full of lonely hearts seeking the right match, be it...I am a huge fan of Jason Sudeikis and I was confident that he would choose material that was original so I decided to invest in this film without researching it. First of all, it is the exact formulaic premise that we have all watched for the past 40 years.You know the type..."I am in my 30's and life is so complex/Sex makes everything so complicated/I just can't grow up/Nobody understands me".Secondarily, in order to be plausible, you have to believe that Jason Sudeikis can pull of being a womanizer.As I said, I am a huge fan but I think it is too big of a stretch for him to pull that off.
The actors all did their jobs bringing mediocre material to almost watchable but in the end, it's just another romantic comedy about a guy and girl who love each other but aren't together for whatever implausible reason.I am not sure how these mediocre scripts continue to get funded.In honor of Black History Month, let’s talk about race riots. Not Reginald Denny being snatched out of his truck and almost murdered. I bring these up not to lay a guilt trip on whites, and certainly not to provide an occasion for blacks to feel all righteously indignant.Not ghetto folk running amok after the assassination of Dr. Not the flaming names of “Watts” and “Newark” and “Detroit.”You see, before black people cornered the market on riots during the 1960s, the very term “race riot” meant mobs taking up arms, going to the black part of town, setting buildings on fire, and beating or shooting African Americans indiscriminately. I bring them up because I’m sick of the flash-card approach to history, especially black history.This violence was often spurred on – or validated after the fact – by white newspapers. It’s not about learning the names and faces of a few exceptional Negroes (though Sojourner Truth and Frederick Douglass all that and a side of fries).The NAACP came into existence in response to one such riot, the Springfield Race Riot of 1908. It’s about trying to appreciate the human drama of history and what life was like for ordinary people. There was a broad political debate going on over black voting rights.
