Notes on a Rom-Com

Exhibit A

Saw Something Borrowed. I will spare you my poetic waxings about rom-com traditions adhered to and defied and my unsettled satisfaction at the happy ending. For now. Instead, if I may offer a few observations:

1. Colin whatshisface with the eyebrows knows how to wear a shirt (Exhibit A).

2. Since when do we write wedding vows on an iPhone? What happened to the little folded piece of tear-stained paper with the shaky handwriting?

Exhibit B

3. John Krasinski and his unparalleled ability to mold his face into funny shapes absolutely steals the show (Exhibit B). The other three stars are pretty much throwaway parts anyway: doormat, party girl and hunk-who-just-really-wants-someone-who-gets-him.
