Movie Monday - 7/25/2017

I have a couple, three movies about which to comment.

I do love Sam Elliott. In The Hero, he plays an aging movie star who wants to leave his mark before he dies. Laura Prepon, Nick Offerman and Katharine Ross also star. It was entertaining.

I recently watched the first two Bridget Jones movies to remember our story so far, before I watched Bridget Jones's Baby. Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth reprise their roles as star-crossed lovers Bridget and Mark Darcy. Hugh Grant appears in photograph, but the third point in this movie's triangle is played by Patrick Dempsey. It was cute and predictable.

The Big Sick is a rom-com loosely based on true events. Comedian Kumail Nanjiani wrote and starred in it. He plays himself, a Muslim who is searching for meaning and who falls in love with a non-Muslim white  girl, much to what he knows will be his parents' disapproval. Zoe Kazan plays Emily, the white girl. The real Emily co-wrote the screenplay. Ray Romano and Holly Hunter also star. It was cute. I liked it.

MK out.
