      Hilife Health Care r Despite other reviewers, I thought this was a tremendous movie. Alexandra Daddario and Tyler Hoechlin were terrific as the leads. The supporting cast was excellent, great production and direction make this a 5 Star movie. Do not miss it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review terry s Good romcom movie, don't get the reviews, give it 5 minutes and decide for yourself. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 11/20/23 Full Review JC C The problem with this film is that it deletes more than half the source material. Structurally, a major plot point in the novel comes after about 80% of the book. Here, it comes before the halfway point, so there isn't enough build-up to give it weight. Most of Emma's characterization is removed, including her loveable loser life, her family, and her career struggles. As one example, her boss in the book is a man who overlooks her work and refuses to replace the department secretary. Here, it's a trans woman making sympathetic faces and having little function other than being the token LGBTQ+ character. Emma's family is a HUGE piece of the book, adding much to her self-doubt and low self-esteem. Again, gone. Adaptations can be tricky. This one didn't have to be. There is room for story, backstory, and characterization. It's just been taken out for no good reason at all. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 11/18/23 Full Review suli t Can You Keep A Secret was predictable but a good movie to watch for a brainless night. The script for each character was very surface level and doesn't capture the message that I think it was trying to portray. Firstly, when the Characters meet on the place she spills secrets that are mostly comical, others just plain stupid, but none very embarrassing. I know that there are women that get stuck in relationships out of loneliness but it didn't send those emotions because Alexandra's character just didn't come off as an awkward lonely girl. So when the time came that the boss "spills" her secrets, it felt more like a proclamation of his adoration for her. They really reached trying to make that a climax for her feeling betrayed but it was so forced by the coworkers joking about nothing serious. They needed better writes and someone who looked more like the lawyer roommate as the actress for the role. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/15/23 Full Review kagey Not as bad as the critics would have you believe, but still... not that good. Alexandra is a terrific actress (see White Lotus) - but here, she's miscast. I don't buy her goofy aloofness or self-deprecating actions and dialogue that comes with this character. Her face is not emotive enough for her to wear her heart on her sleeve. And she has zero chemistry with Tyler - who's pretty good in this. To make matters worse, this movie was stuffed with every ethnicity, sexual orientation and gender that you feel like you're watching a diversity training seminar instead of a real story. The inclusiveness of side character casting stuck out like a sore thumb and made too much of this movie ring false. The "misunderstandings" that cause the girl-lose-guy were dumb and the "big secret" that Tyler's been keeping is laughably stupid and implausible. The set-up of a goofy girl spilling all her secrets and then later seeing her try to cover them up was the charming and fun of the story. But it doesn't last long enough to make this a "must see." What's also missing is how these two characters really complete each other. By the end, we - as the audience - never felt the magic and the desire for the 2 main characters to get (and stay) together, because we never believed that they had any magic and needed each other. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/05/23 Full Review Joanna B Completely forgettable leads, absolutely boring storyline, nothing redeeming really.

      Cath Clarke Guardian Elise Duran's adaptation of a Sophie Kinsella chick- lit novel gives us a kind of unromantic noncom, a movie with no believable characters and worrying few laughs. Rated: 2/5 Apr 29, 2020 Full Review Christy Lemire FilmWeek (KPCC - NPR Los Angeles) I'm kind of amazed that this movie still gets made today -- it feels like a throwback to really vapid, perky late-90s romantic comedies, like something you'd watch while laying back on the couch with a cold or the flu. Sep 16, 2019 Full Review Courtney Howard Variety Overall, Can You Keep A Secret forges its identity as a serviceable romp for those who enjoy films based on postfeminist fiction. Sep 14, 2019 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...a reasonable-enough, romcom-friendly premise that’s employed to pervasively underwhelming effect... Rated: 1.5/4 Jan 1, 2024 Full Review Matt Pais MattPais.com Treats sensible human behavior as a foreign language it doesn't speak. Rated: D May 2, 2022 Full Review Lonita Cook KCTV5 News at 9 In order to keep the joke running, they have to render the character virtually voiceless. Feb 22, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
