Will Darcy
5 March 2005 | by anshu1806See all my reviews

Someone said that Darcy wasn't good looking enough. Are you crazy? He is amazing in this movie, I just saw it and yeah the songs are terrible and I was looking for the fast forward button in the theater but you cant say that the rest of the movie wasn't charming. It was so bollywood I loved it. The no kissing, the whole misunderstanding between girl and boy. It was an entertainer. I think that was the point. Not to win an Oscar or to do great things but to entertain and I think it succeeded in that mission. I think we should stop analyzing every small detail of the movie and just learn to enjoy it. Who didn't laugh when they saw Ashanti. There are humorous parts in the movie that we just have to take and leave the horrible songs behind. For a first run of a mixture between bollywood and Hollywood. I cant say it was too bad.
