Just Like Heaven

I saw Just Like Heaven today at the dollar movie theater in the mall... only, Tuesday is 50 cent movie day! What a bargain! I could have seen it twice!

Well, this is not the best romantic comedy ever made. It's cute, sure, but look at the stars - Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo are the embodiment of cute. Reese plays a doctor who gets in a car accident, and Mark sublets her apartment, but her spirit is still there... and the hilarity ensues! Okay, not really. There's a typical spirit-possession gag with Reese jumping into Mark's body, causing him to make a fool of himself at a bar, and the rest is pretty cliche, too. Now, I don't want to ruin it for any of you, but since it's a romantic comedy, you know it works out in the end. You'll just have to watch to find out how. It was fine, and a pleasant way to waste a little time on a Tuesday afternoon, but if I were you, I wouldn't pay much more than a dollar to see this movie. Don't rush right out and rent it as soon as it comes out on DVD. Let it hit the non-new release shelf.

One great thing about this movie: Donal Logue. If you don't know who I'm talking about, check him out on IMDb. You know, that guy. I love him in everything he's in.

Remember Donal Logue in those old "Jimmy the Cab Driver" ads for MTV? Awesome.

50 Cents!!! That is so insane. I would watch nearly any movie for that amount. I am in awe right now. You should totally go see 50 Cent in Get Rich or Die Tryin' when it comes to 50 Cent day.

Well, I've seen him in Sneakers, Runaway Bride, Grounded for Life, and The Patriot, and then those MTV ads, as well as a recurring role on ER. He's kind of prolific.
