    The wife dragged me to this kind of Rom-Com that I guess Universal is hoping will sleeper-through the next two months and make back its $30 million budget and then some.

    Overall, it wasn't as bad as I feared. We get Emilia Clarke, the cute cupcake from Game of Thrones, in the female lead. We get Michelle Yeoh, still looking fabulous at 57, Emma Thompson, not faring nearly so well at 60 but still an excellent actress, and Henry Golding of "Crazy Rich Asians" as the male lead. The movie drags for the first hour but comes alive in the last half-hour with a twist that works.

    Also, George Michael's music is basically the soundtrack, and even though I was never a fan, my 50-something self is now ready to acknowledge what my 20-something self wasn't back in the day, namely that he really was a talented musician. The music works.

    We just went to see it. I enjoyed it, and was totally surprised by the plot twist. My wife enjoyed it up to the plot twist and then hated it!

    I like Paul Feig so I've been tempted to see this, but boy, the reviews have been brutal!

    I'll probably wait for the Blu-ray...

    I've read online about the "twist". Sounds very hokey to me.
