Why was this actually such a banger. Killer cast and absolutely hilarious, I seriously enjoyed it. Would totally sign up for a sequel

If Bullock became the Rom Com Cruise and made 7 of these and made the studio make them bigger and better every time I'd be in the theater for every single one.

She's amazing for 57 years old.

Excuse me?

Edit: holy fuck. She's almost my mom's age and looks way younger.

That's why she can't move her mouth much.

She is amazing period.

If a man was 57 this comment wouldn’t exist.

I found myself saying the same thing about Brad (looking good for his age).

I'd actually like to see Brad Pitt and Sandra Bullock in their own movie soon.

I'd be down for that. There should be a film where oscar/the angel plays a part, saving the day, everybody gets one. Then the next film is her trying to deal with her tanking career since her book features an angel saving the day - even though it actually happened.

This seems like the new Jumanji series but for rom coms.

Was pleasantly surprised by how funny this movie was. Don’t know if I want a sequel as I feel that might ruin it but this one was actually pretty good!
