The Review of Letters to Juliet


Letters to Juliet is a 2010 American romantic comedy film starring Amanda Seyfried, Chris Egan, Vanessa Redgrave, Gael García Bernal, and Franco Nero. Directed by Gary Winick, the film was released theatrically in North America and other countries on May 14, 2010. - taken from Wikipedia

It is a whole story about "What if you had a second chance to find true love?".

Sophie Hall (Amanda Seyfried) is a fact checker at The New Yorker magazine who dreams of becoming a writer, went on e pre-honeymoon trip with her fiance to Verona, Italy. Sophie goes sightseeing and comes across the house where Juliet Capulet supposedly lived and watches in awe as numerous people gather to write letters to Juliet about their loves and post them on Juliet's Wall. Her journey starts when she followed one of Juliet's secretaries back to their Headquarters and vonluntered herself to be one of them and began replying on of the letters she collected from Juliet's wall..

What I love about the show is that it's such a romantic cliche chick flick. The fact that it's always a girl liking a guy she couldnt have and then losing the guy and misunderstanding him and then found out what happened and have a happy life together, the end. I also love the note that she wrote back to Clair (the old lady who was looking for her long lost love). It was so touching..(only that part) and the fact that I get to see Christopher Egan's charming face. I was sight seeing more of Italy than watching the film. The place is beautiful! One day, I am going to go there and spend at least more than a week exploring the romantic city!


Despite hearing that my friends cried watching this show, I did not seem to find this movie touching at all. Probably I am not as emotional as some of the girls I know or because I prefer mature romantic films like P.S I Love You or The Notebook (I am old like that!), but I probably didn't enjoy the film that much because I am not a fan of Amanda Seyfried. She always had the same role, as in Dear John as well and I found Dear John to be rather boring. However, Channing Tatum is so damn HOT! Anyway, what I didn't like about this movie is the fact that Christopher Egan had a British accent. Somehow I just found it so funny because it reminded me of the baby character in Family Guy! Get what I mean? It's hilarious! I preferred it when he acted in that King show series. He was much sexier there.

What to expect? A very subtle chick love story. Nothing you've never seen. You probably know how it ends from the start. Come to think of it, that was exactly what one of my friends told me!
