I know I'm not supposed to let my own brushes with fame affect my opinion of a disc, but at risk of sounding like a name-dropper (okay, twist my arm), a couple of years back I had the great fortune to interview ex-Destiny's Child bandmates Beyonce and Kelly Rowland at a press junket the two were doing to promote a movie. And unlike other bratty, obnoxious pop singers you hear stories about, these two were the sweetest, nicest, most down-to-earth ladies I think I ever had the privilege to interview. So even though I can't say I'm entirely familar with the entire Destiny's Child song catalogue, whenever I hear one of their many hits on the radio, I can't help but flashback to those interviews and smile.
To be honest, this isn't exactly my type of music. I tend to be more of a rock guy, favoring deep low bass and lots of grungy guitars. And when I do get into more dance-oriented music, I more like to throw on hard techno or Nine Inch Nails. So this mix sounded a bit attenuated in the high end -- a bit "bright." Granted, this is very upbeat, diva-fueled pop, so a lack of truly hefty bass is probably appropriate. The elements of the track are certainly very well mixed, with the vocals quite prominent and the various live and pre-recorded elements (nice overdubs you're singing to, Beyonce!) not fighting each other for better placement. The only really fake moments are the sudden volume bursts of the crowd -- whenever a sing-along is required, the audience suddenly seems to get louder. Oh, well -- it's all in good fun, right? Again, I can't imagine any Destiny's Child fan being disappointed here.
This was a good B - movie. Low-budget feel but at the same time I do not think it was below a 6 star. The chemistry between the two leads was cute. I liked the jokes not lol but good!I do not feel like my time was wasted. I would not mind seeing it again. Definitely a rom/com adult style. More for ppl above 35 yo. I myself enjoyed it and I am sure if you like rom/com's you will love this one.Heartfelt and I wish I could find an old lady with a can so I can finally get the man of my dreams. Looks like I am stuck being alone another 6 years, that sucks! As always be your own judge and ignore the low reviews!!
The film felt like a series of skits written by high school aged males with no experience with relationships or adult behavior that thought, "Let's make a Rom-Com movie." The structure is disjointed having no flow. The roles are shallow caricatures of folk with no substance. I've seen better productions of high school plays than this. It's about a man and a woman who like dancing whose destiny is to meet in a few days and fall in love. In the meantime, they have crappy dates with shallow people with one note personalities that would send any sane person running mixed in with bits of dancing. Sort of like a Rowan & Martin's Laugh In party sketch for the length of the movie. They finally meet at a wedding reception where one wonders why those who wed even bothered. The last few minutes where the two finally meet is the only part that made some sense.p.
