Movie Summary

Director:
Jason Friedberg , Aaron Seltzer
Released:
2006
Rating:
PG-13
Date Movie is a 2006 film that combines comedy with a bit of drama. This is a tale with characters like Julia Jones (Alyson Hannigan) and Grant Funkyerdoder (Adam Campbell) who come together to show the humor in clich'' dating movies. This film combines and, in a way, is a spoof on all of the typical date movies. In the typical scene, Julia Jones is an overweight, unhappy, and overly loving daughter who is seeking the one. Scenes in this film include corny make-up scenes, a paraody of love songs, and the basic date movie plot of boy meets girl and then falls deeply in love, having to win over her heart. The whole film combines "date movies" for a plot of a relationship that has typical trials along with typical love scenes. It combines movies such as "My Big Fat Greek Wedding", "Meet the Parents", "Wedding Planner", and many other clich'' date movies. These combinations come together to make viewers realize the humor in most so called reality dating movies.moreless
