How can disturbing be a good thing? Well, watch the damn movie! (by mertensj)
You know, when this movie first came out, I saw it slammed by critics and the box-office as well . . . Usually not a good sign for a movie, eh? But, after just seeing it on cable I ask, why the paltry 4 stars? Have the people that voted ever BEEN in a college romance? This movie actually opened up some old wounds. It hurt, yes, and I wasn't all that happy a person after seeing it, but . . . It was very honest. I couldn't believe how honest and true this couple's problems were. In the end you have a movie with a very believable romance that also offers just the right amount of hope <more>
at the end for those poor saps like myself. Those ones who never quite got over that college love . . .
Stejam; what on earth are you on about? it is the best film ever! (by trudz900)
I am thirteen years old and saw the film not long ago, it has since become my favourite film. 'stejam from United Kingdom' i read your comment and i Completely disagree, how can you say that? do you know who you remind me of? Monk from the film, a pathetic man who just wants to put a dampener on other peoples happiness! i absolutely adore the film as Julia stiles and Freddie Prince Jr are my two favourite actress/actors. the perfect teen film!! i rate it 10/10 and would gladly watch it ten times over. it has such brilliant scenes especially the scene with Ashton Kutcher because it <more>
shows some disbelief in the real world by having that whole scene. You sir do not have a clue what you are talking about.
great movie, but not for everyone... (by thomas_k)
The problem with any romantic comedy is just that - it's a romantic comedy and we were all raised to believe that these are movies that you take your girlfriend to see because she won't be too interested in the latest action flick that guys might rush to see. I believe that this is a shame because people might overlook various aspects of the movie mainly the plot simply because their standards are set low to begin with.I won't tell you guys that this is not a movie that is more likely to interest girls than us though guys, but if you're even a little sensitive you can <more>
really enjoy this movie while having a laugh and after you'll finish seeing it you might end up with a few things to think about especially if your around 18 - 22 and in the middle of a good semi-long lasting relationship . If you hate all these girly movies and you can only be happy when monster truck mashing is on I suggest you skip this movie and stop reading my review right now.The movie is well made within the standards of modern romantic comedies again, "light" movies , the cast is actually very good and even that most of the surrounding characters are not 100% believable that's OK because they were never mend to be that way the movie got to have those for some comedy . Julia really plays well and if you notice her expressions they seem to be very natural and there's a good chemistry between the couple on-screen and you can really tell.If you take away all the smaller cheesy parts of the movie you are left with a beautiful story about a couple who met too soon and were lucky enough to stumble upon each other later on and relive their love. I think that the fact I had gone through something very similar to this in my personal life had an affect on the way I see the plot. These things do happen and just like that, if you are lucky enough. Right now I'm in that time when we are apart and I hope that my story will end just like the movie did fat chance .So there you have it. this movie can be all that you want to take from it: it can be another romantic comedy movie to pass the weekend or you might learn a thing or two about love and some old memories will come up to the surface again.
First I'll start with the film itself, it was great. I loved the way that the characters stop and tell the story about themselves. The story is believable, how many of you cannot remember your first love and how dramatic it was. Next the acting.I thought that Julia did a great job in this movie. She played her character Imogen flawlessly. She made it believable, and she really sold the movie for me. I like the fact that she can play so many ages and make them stick, in one movie; from freshman year college, to post-college workforce stage.Freddie Prinze Jr. I guess I just don't like. <more>
He doesn't seem like a very good actor to me. I didn't believe his character, I remember times in the movie where I just wanted to reach in the TV and hit him upside the head Prinze .I think this is one of the coolest teenage romantic comedy's out there.
A warm, funny love story - I really liked it (by neglas)
Being a guy, I think most people would expect me to dislike this movie. However I totally liked it. It is funny. Its romantic. The plot is in no way original, but was there ever a lovestory like that? I have seen this a couple of times now and I totally like it. Julia Styles is so cute. The story is told with a twinkle in the eye and shouldn't be taken too seriously. I don't understand why people hate this movie so much. Okay it's not the movie of the year, but it a nice, charming and funny little movie about love between to people. Definitely worth seeing.
Better than average teen romance (by Happy_Evil_Dude)
Alfred Freddie Prinze Jr and Imogen Julia Stiles both reflect on their past relationship their lost "first true love". This flashback style of storytelling is one of the film's strongest points as it adds a whole new depth to the story, at least in my opinion. Is this what people would call a "chick flick"? Mmmh, not really. I know a lot of guys squirm at the sound of "romantic comedy" "Me man! Me need big explosion!!!" but hopefully others don't mind them and Down To You is a pretty good film if you're looking for something sweet and <more>
somewhat cheesy. What's more, the film is told mainly through the guy's perspective, a minority in these types of teen movies. Usually, when the main characters are male, the movie will be mainly about having sex and filled with sex jokes, rather than portraying young guys with feelings oh my god! Guys have feelings too! Just like girls! . Other such movies include the excellent 10 Things I Hate About You also with Julia Stiles, oddly enough and The Girl Next Door. So yes, I'd recommend Down To You. It isn't an amazing film by any means and shouldn't be on any Top 10 or even Top 100 best movie list but it's a nice enough little film. Freddie Prinze Jr isn't the strongest actor in the cast but he's decent enough. Other familiar faces include Selma Blair, Rosario Dawson, Henry Winkler and Ashton Kutcher in a very small but great role.
Boy Meets Girl, Minus the Cookie Cutter Plot Twists (by offtoneverland87)
While certainly not a popular film from what I've read and seen, "Down to You" was definitely a pleasant, altogether refreshing take on the teen romantic comedy. No, "She's All That" it ain't...but it also doesn't follow the all-too-predictable flow of meeting the leads, meeting the conflict, anticipating the climax, whilst remaining comforted throughout by the inevitable perfect kiss at the end...naturally, accompanied by some current pop-laden tune."Down to You" makes you smile...and that's what it's meant to do. Stiles and Prinze, Jr. <more>
both hold their own...and the chemistry isn't bubblegum-sweet, for once. They seem like companions, not destined archetypes. Perhaps that is what refreshes the most: you get the escapism of an alternate reality, complete with absurd comics and extreme highs and lows...without having to check your brain at the opening credits. Nothing is predictable, even the ending...yes, the unlikely happens...the lovers do reunite, but it isn't a day later, after some basic words from good friends. Even the "good friends" are tested and played more realistically in this film.Essentially, there's heavy sarcasm to keep you laughing, absurdity to keep you awake, and just enough love and chemistry to make it all endearing...and you definitely won't walk away humming something from Britney Spears' earlier albums. Thank goodness for a break from the mold. ^_^
A movie for those who are big fans of these actors or just love romantic movies (by santicorv)
Let's be realistic no movie is perfect. This movie has i'd say a 6 star script i mean come on Freddie P. Jr's character is speaking to a spider, and also that whole bet that he could recognize love by tasting wine? but it has a 9 star performance Julia Stiles and Freddie P. are great actors . I'm a big Julia stiles fan but i think this is just a predictable romantic film with a mediocre script but i think these two actors have the ability to turn a bad movie in to a great movie just because they have such next door kind of people personalities that just makes you wanna cry <more>
at the end of the movie.To wrap this up, Great performances, poor script. This is a movie that not everyone is going to enjoy.
