    Awesome!

    I saw this movie on tv and it was great! It was wacky and funny and romantic at the same time. This is one of Cameron Diaz's best movies, and more people should watch it. An awesome movie!!!!!

    THIS IS THE GREATEST MOVIE EVER!!!

    A Life Less Ordinary is by far Danny Boyle's best and most original film yet - and might be one of the best films of the 90s. The style of direction and writing alone is worth the purchase - btw, DANNY BOYLE HAS REALLY GOOD TASTE IN MUSIC ALSO!!!!!

    Fun Hi-Jinks Comedy!!!!!

    Great movie!!! Ewan Mcgregor is cute and adorable as always. Robert(Ewan's character) kidnaps rich kid Celine(Cameron's character and love and hi-jinks ensues. It turns out that Celine is a seasoned kidnap victim that teaches the ropes in kidnapping to Robert. Hilarious! All along the way, we have Holly Hunter and Delroy Lindo (who are angels)attempting to cast their love spell on Robert and Celine with strange and outrageously funny results. There's a scene in this movie that shows Ewan singing and dancing with Cameron Diaz and that's not to be missed. If you watched Moulin Rouge, here's a sneak peek at what would be!! Though he doesn't sing as much as I wanted, you can hear his potential. (Whereas, Cameron isn't much of a singer!)haha If anyone can bring musicals back into the forefront, it's certainly Ewan Mcgregor!!!

    Love it!

    This movie is really good. It was the first movie I saw with Ewan McGregor before I fell in love with his acting. His cute personality makes all of his movies great even if they've gotten bad reviews. Cameron Diaz is great too as always.
