TBH I wasn't expecting the best when I reached into the supermarket's bargain bucket
There's a deleted scene that shows that Emily Blunt certainly can pull off some decent acting. I'd have to watch the movie a second time but I'm not sure she was given much of a chance to in the movie itself.
I can't place Emily Blunt off the top of my head in any other movies, but I think I'll keep half an eye out for her in the future.
There's another deleted scene that I'm sure was meant to be an amusing nod to Beauty and the Beast
I'm wondering whether I'm entering an odd phase with films. I feel I would rather watch some flawed films that execute some bits really well rather than hope that someone pulls something interesting and different and completely and thoroughly decent all the way through. I'll watch this film again soon I think minus alcohol and any distraction to see if it falls in the same category as 'The Rite' for me.
