    Not The Next Best Thing

    The Next Best thing was an incredibly bad movie. The movie starts out fine then starts to get really predictable. The story was about a woman named Abbie played by Madonna who has a gay best friend named Robert played by Rupert Everett. One night when both of them are feeling lonely they become lovers. Later they find out that they have become parents as well. The two decide to raise the baby together but dont decide to get married. That would be kinda weird. Years after the child is born Abbie meet someone and decide to get married. the stroy continues and starts to get really boring. The movie gets really predictable towards the end. If you want to watch a predictable boring movie then go ahead and watch The Next Best Thing, but take my advice. The Next Best Thing wasn't worth the time or the money renting it.
