New York, I Love You

Starring: Tiffany Pollard
Runtime: 1 hr 50 mins

The TV series "I Love New York" was okay - but let's be honest, it was no Flavor of Love. So when I heard they were actually going to make a movie based on "I Love New York," I was skeptical. Then I was excited. Then I was hungry, so I ate some bean dip. Then I was excited again. Then I was sick (the bean dip, I'm pretty sure). Then I forgot about the movie for about two days. Then I remembered, and I thought: sure, I'll give that a chance.

Remember how bad everyone thought "The Real World: The Real Movie" was going to be? And then it turned out to have a surprise ending that moved everyone in the audience to tears? And then it turned out that they never actually made that movie, and it was all just a really detailed dream I had on the airplane after eating some bad bean dip? Now that I think about it, I don't know why you would remember that.

I have to say: this movie is not what I was expecting. Brace yourself fans, because Tiffany Pollard isn't even in the final cut of this movie.

The movie doesn't really follow the plot of the television series either, which was confusing and disorienting for the first half an hour (when were they going to eliminate someone?). By the end, I was beginning to accept this movie as an entity on its own terms.

The stories told in this movie are so heartfelt and beautiful, that it doesn't even matter that they diverge from the original plot of the TV series.

4 out of 5 stars.

Huh? I'm not quite sure what your angle is in this review good sir. Granted, this review paled in comparison to the utter madness of your "Where the wild things are review", but this is most likely due to the fact that your "New York.." review failed to say anything. What does the original plot of the t.v. show have anything to do with the merits of the recent movie? If one wanted to see the plot of the t.v. show, they would have watched the t.v. show. I do hope that no one takes your review seriously, because they deserve no such treatment.

The world punishes you for being clever.

I'm almost finished with my accelerator suit! I can't wait to show it to you using video.
