Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Serious Moonlight suggests an unholy, watered-down hybrid of The Ref and Funny Games, played as a chirpy screwball comedy.
Rotten: There's a lot of yelling, cracking wise, and cooing in this creepy rom-com.
Rotten: Many women would probably like to duct-tape their unfaithful mates to a toilet bowl, but watching it happen isn't quite as funny as it sounds.
Rotten: Serious Moonlight has a backstory much more intriguingly dramatic than what's onscreen.
that movie was soo funny
If you like watching people abuse each other, this is your movie.
For a few seconds, you see some pretty California scenery. That mostly occurs during the opening credits. A wife ties her husband up, rather than let him leave her. This story sounds like it could be funny and charming; in this treatment, it is neither. The characters are contemptible, the story ludicrous, the dialogue excruciating. There is no humor and no romance in this nasty film. It's a very long session of sado-masochism, not only artistically but literally. Apparently some people like that, but my wife and I were nauseated. To each his own, but you've been warned.
I wouldnt say its the type of movie that has you laughing out loud but the situation is hillarious. Its a silly comedy with some funny moments and light laughs. There is a love story there as well. Meg Ryan looks beautiful and is perfect for this part. Justin Long surprised me, he did a great job too.
The acting was great, the movie was fun, and the moral of the story is actually an important one. Id recomend watching this movie to anyone who is in a light hearted mood, and not looking for the years greatest comedy... just something to watch that can make you smile and see the hillarity in tradgey.
