I went into this movie today not expecting much, just some pretty cinematography. But I left very satisfied. I thought this movie had a great storyline that kept me interested from beginning to end, and despite criticism I thought Robert Pattinson and Reese Witherspoon had excellent chemistry on the screen.
I am a huge Reese Witherspoon fan and when I found out she did her own elephant stunts in the movie I was even more so. That woman can do anything! I also would love to get my hands on the dresses she wears in the movie. Gorgeous!
The hardest thing for me to watch in the film was the implied cruelty that the ringleader inflicts on the animals, especially the elephant Rosie. I teared up when they showed him beating her with a bull stick. Heartbreaking! But it just made me hate the villain even more. I loved that Rob showed some manliness in this film and he also smiled a lot more than he has in his past movies. He is so hot when he smiles.
It was a great chick flick and I definitely recommend checking it out.
