This movie comes with a strong endorsement by one of my cubicle mates.
Not strong enough for her to let me use her name, mind you.
But that’s more about maintaining her reputation as a hardnosed journalist than a reflection on the quality of the movie (she even turned down her mother’s offer to buy the movie for her because she wouldn’t any of her friends to accidentally come across it in her collection).
Why is this Amanda Bynes flick worthy of a spot in your Netflix queue?
The guy (Channing Tatum) is really cute; it’s got plenty of soccer; and it’s family friendly (rated PG-13 for some sexual material).
It’s based on Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night,” which has plenty of intrigue and mistaken identities.
Have you got a DVD in your collection you’re embarrassed about but that you secretly watch over and over?
I’m compiling a list. If you’re feeling brave, send me the movie that makes you most ashamed and why it’s worth it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, hometown and a phone number where we can reach you. (Your name and hometown will be published; phone number is for verification of your comments.)
We’ll post the best online and may use them in a future story in the newspaper. All materials submitted to the Idaho Statesman may be published or distributed in print, electronic or other form.
