“Unforgettable”???

“The fact that I’m putting “27 Dresses” up here (cue hand motion) compared to this movie says a lot”

When you hear the word unforgettable, you think of Nat King Cole’s famous song “Unforgettable”. This movie is the exact opposite.  It should’ve been called “Forgettable”.

We aren’t sure where to begin. This movie was disjointed, and what happens when your star has fallen.

How forgettable was this movie, let us count the ways.

  1. What happened with the suitcase? Julia, played by Rosario Dawson, was driving down the highway and the suitcase fell off the car roof. Your suitcase flew open with your stuff on the interstate, and you didn’t notice? We need answers.
  2. Why didn’t Julia and David announce the engagement before she moved in? Was this a mail-order relationship? Why was this a secret?
  3. You filed a restraining order against someone, and you didn’t share that with your fiancée? This wasn’t a casual one-night stand you had in your early 20s. Restraining orders are a BIG deal. You didn’t think you should mention that to him?
  4. Julia didn’t notice her engagement ring was missing for almost 2 days. At this point, we were convinced this was a mail-order engagement. I asked Dion for the 4th time for “what happened to the suitcase?”
  5. The make-up was elementary. The “black eye” was magenta. Perfectly straight lines for scratches? Did a ghost cat cut their faces that we didn’t see? At this point, Dion leaned over to me and asked if this was a parody film.
  6. In the final moments of the film, Tess, played Katherine Heiglm leaned on her “sister” before she took her life. Seriously, come on! This isn’t funny anymore. We are bored.
  7. We are just going to gloss over the fact that David got whacked in the head with a fire poker, and the daughter lost her mother?

This film had every stereotypical female antagonist characteristics:

Women with parental issues – ✅

Female ex that can’t move on – ✅

Women that sits at home and Facebook stalks the new girlfriend – ✅

The “ride-or-die” friend that will do some investigative research – ✅

Violent ex-boyfriend – ✅

Dramatic fight scene – ✅

Co-dependent women wanting validation from a man – ✅

Did the writers sit in a room over beer and share “war” stories of all the things that happened in their past relationships?

Again, What happened to the suitcase?

Notes from the desk of Dr. Metzger:

unf-intro

This movie was a guide of what NOT to say to children of divorced families. I literally cringed at times when Tessa was talking to her daughter and whispered to Lauren “this kids gonna need a lot of therapy”. The old wife/new fiancée dynamic was so inappropriate that it was unrealistic. Let’s meet for lunch and discuss our sex life with the same man over margaritas? No. Save your time. I chose it because I’m always game for a thriller and had loved Katherine in her romantic comedy hay days. Unfortunately, it fell flat. Lauren walked out and said “those are two hours of my life that I won’t get back”. My bad, Lauren…you got next pick.
