I'm off to watch this later on tonight, I'm pretty excited for it too as I love Meryl and it looks pretty funny. Not had much sleep though so I hope it's entertaining enough to keep me awake laugh.gif

This is just one of those really 'lovely' movies, it captured what Philomena did too whilst being funny and light whilst dreadfully sad at times too. Meryl was fantastic, so funny during all the singing scenes, the lady next to me must have cried from laughing about five times. Hugh Grant was fantastic too, so utterly charming and you feel so warm towards him (even though he basically cheated on her). The only cast member I wasn't a fan of was Simon Helberg, I usually like him but he made some odd character choices and was just a bit too over the top, he got really annoying within his first minute of screentime.

Overall, I really enjoyed it, a funny movie with an uplifting message behind it with a hard-hitting ending as well. Hoping it turns into a bit of a Lady in the Van type hit.

I started off enjoying it enough, Simon Helberg was a highlight, I lived for his reaction to first hearing Florence sing, but overall I think I was wanting something a bit more and found it rather one note. Yes, she can't sing, hahahaha, very funny.

well made, good cast, good performances, mildly endearing, beautifully period shot/SFX'd and costumed, and a few laughs - Simon's facial reactions are what makes it funny, essential to the humour. Some people in the cinema pissed themselves laughing. 6/10.
