GD Star Rating

Ambitious young Manhattanite and urban conservationist Beth wants it all: a good job, good friends, and a good guy to share the city with. Of course that last one is often the trickiest of all. Beth falls hard for Tommy, a sexy, young Wall Street hot-shot. But just as everything seems to be falling into place, complications arise in the form of Tommy’s sensitive and handsome co-worker Daniel.

You can seriously watch the first few minutes of The Good Guy and know exactly what will happen. I thought maybe to avoid being too cliche the beginning was used to throw people off, but nope, what you see is what you get. Speaking of cliche, this movie has a long list of them from the type of characters to some of the events in it such as a book club. All the characters are set a certain way and very predictable. The acting itself wasn’t horrible, but it wasn’t good either. It would have to take amazing acting to try and save this dry and cliche story.

It’s hard to say too much positive about the film, but the overall production feel was decent and they captured Manhattan pretty well. Besides that you just get average acting and a predictable plot, and not to spoil anything, but there is no twist or anything. My first reaction when the film ended was, “That was it?” and I wondered what the point of watching it was since I could have just read the description and saved myself 1 1/2 hours. Regardless, if you are a fan of cliche romantic comedies it might be ok to you, but set the bar low.

Ratings Explained

10-9 = Very few movies will get a 9 or 10 and it is reserved for great movies with very few flaws. The acting, direction, music, plot, and ending all have to be excellent.

8-7 = Most highly recommended movies will fall under this range. They will be enjoyable and get a positive recommendation. Some flaws in the film will keep it from getting a higher score, but definitely worth checking out.

6-5 = Films in this range have several flaws and may be entertaining, but lack most of the qualities that make films great. These are generally reserved for when you want to watch a film and don't have too many options.

4-3 = Anything in this range isn't very good, but has a few positives throughout to keep it from getting the lowest scores. Even though the score is low there is still a chance some people may like these.

2-1 = The bottom of the barrel, the only difference between 2 and 1 is that if I can finish the movie it automatically gets a 2, but if it is so terrible that I need to turn it off before it ends then it gets a 1.
