04.09.15Netflix This one was a bit closer to the first for me. As soon as I saw that they started the movie together I knew what the whole movie would be. I recognize that I'm judging the movie on its story when all three of these are really not about story at all but emotion and reality, but you know... if I'm going to be engaged for a hundred minutes I kind of need story AND emotion. So this didn't work as well for me... the whole movie kind of boils down to the last two minutes: whether there will be change or not. And... I mean like Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf... is it a great play? are there great performances in the Nichols movie? All that stuff is Yes but at the same time I don't care to watch it again. Watching people argue gets pretty tedious for me. And while the notion of long-term relationship love might be worth exploring as part of this series, it doesn't hold a candle to the first two films in terms of vibrancy and romance. That might fit the characters' lives but it doesn't make the movie more entertaining.
