Definitely, Maybe: Film #45 of Film 365

Sunday 12th June 2011

Director: Adam Brooks
Year: 2008
Stars: Ryan Reynolds, Abigail Breslin, Isla Fisher, Rachel Weisz, Elizabeth Banks

I wasn't expecting too much from this - I just wanted an easy film to watch on a Sunday evening, and a romantic comedy seemed to fit the bill.

Definitely, Maybe follows Will Hayes (Reynolds) as he explains his past love life to his daughter, and she has to try and guess which one is her mother.

It's a new idea for a romantic comedy (well, it's certainly one I've never seen before), and it works surprisingly well. Unlike most Hollywood romantic comedies, I actually didn't know what the ending was going to be - and when it came it was, if not totally surprising, perfectly satisfying.

Rating: 4 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
