Did Anyone See This Yet?

Can You Ever Forgive Me? Dark humored but with brilliant performances. Melissa McCarthy and Richard E Grant should be award contenders. Loved it.

2. Yes. I was sorely disappointed.

I went on election night to keep myself as busy as possible, knowing that the returns from the west coast would be ever so important. So ... I was nervous and upset when I saw on my phone that Florida and Georgia werenít going well. Even so, I was excited to see this movie. I didnít think the two comedic leads had chemistry. I didnít think the would-be lover and McCarthyís character had chemistry. I really thought it was a decent story with good actors who just didnít click. I thought Melissa McCarthy was flat. Might have been that I could practically smell the cat feces in the main characterís apartment.

Sorry to give a bad review. I thought the reviews were off. Generally, I can take a slow movie. Iím not desperate for plot; I like character studies. This just didnít work for me.

Just saw the last line of your op ... I will definitely try this again when it comes to On Demand.

3. I was right

Grant and McCarthy are picking up award nominations. Grant with a couple of wins.

4. By my count

Grant has won at least 6 Best Supporting Actor awards so far this season.
