Blurb: Rosie and Alex have been best friends since they were 5, so they couldn’t possibly be right for one another…or could they? When it comes to love, life and making the right choices, these two are their own worst enemies.
A heartwarming movie, Love, Rosie was an awesome Chick Flick that I enjoyed by myself (of course)! This movie was just full of laughs and tears and just – so FUN!
Love, Rosie is based on the book Where Rainbows End by Cecelia Ahern which is about two best friends. It is obvious at the start of the movie that Rosie and Alex love each other but are scared to admit it to each other because they did not want to ruin their relationship. The movie spans a few years in their life as both graduate high school, go on to college and start their careers. Both plan to go to the US to go to University (yes, I sound so British) until Rosie ends up getting pregnant.
I really love this movie! It’s fun and I found it really easy to relate to Rosie, the main character. I mean, even if I still think of her Clary Fray (The Mortal Instruments) and the other as Finnick (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), I thought both were cute together. There were a few laughs all throughout the movie – the condom – ROFL.
This movie was a surprise to me, really. I thought it would be the usual teen flick but it was filled with a lot of thought provoking scenes.
I haven’t read the book which this movie was based on and I may not read it. I am not such a fan of Chick Lits at this point but the movie was awesome – brought me to tears too!
Nope, hubby did not watch this with me. I really don’t think that he can stand through this girly movie with me.
