Loved it!

I saw this film at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend. I picked the movie and my fiancé gave me some grief over it while we waited to go in, but he ended up loving it!! Brittany Murphy is very entertaining, and the entire cast is enthralling. This is a very cute and funny movie. It pokes fun at itself and the one-liners just keep coming. The cameo appearances by Orlando Bloom and Gwyneth Paltro are brief, so don't go just for the glimpse of a favorite actor/actress, but they do add the the appeal of the film. The entire theater was laughing throughout the movie. I rank this movie up with Love, Actually and Four Weddings and a Funeral.

Metatheatric humor

Love (and Other Disasters) is not a typical romantic comedy, primarily as it pokes fun at the various aspects of the genre - predictable plot, grand romantic finale, happy coincidences etc. It is a light-hearted tongue in cheek movie that has all the spunk of a good romantic comedy with enough self-effacing genre-specific humor to keep it fresh and non-cloyingly sweet. Other viewers have noted that Brittany Murphy is stiff and unbelievable, and that other characters are overly dramatic. But as the film draws attention to its very fictitious, theatrical nature, the characters fall into place as humorous fabricated, sensationalized versions of human nature in this light satire. Also worth noting is the film's lovely approach towards homosexuality. Admittedly Peter's love life is a side-line plot, but what is shown has a ring of sincerity to it and avoids sensationalizing or stereotyping homosexual characters. While this movie is unlikely to win any Oscars, it is definitely one of the best romantic comedies I've seen.

A feel good movie with a good laugh

For people who find romantic movies boring and inedible, here comes a movie you might be able to enjoy with someone who strives to watch a romantic comedy. Not only is the movie funny, but all in it's place: It dose not overly exaggerate, it includes the audience in the spectacle, keeps them in action and not to forget makes them end up with a smile on their face. Brittany Murphy played her part adorably well and catches the heart of the viewer, not to mention us wanting her to be happy and find the one "true love". I can only speak for myself when I say I dislike tacky romantic comedies, as mentioned before this was very much kept in limit. I will certainly watch it again and will further recommend it.
