This article is about a love movie. When I say love movie, I don’t necessarily mean any romantic comedy with heart-throbbing romance. Rather, love movies are funny, wholesome films that are meant to be enjoyed by both adults and children. The following paragraphs contain information about a few films that I consider to be love movies.
If you are looking for a film about a love triangle that has superb acting performances and some great set design, then The Pursuit of Happyness is definitely the film for you. Directed by Michael Caine, The Pursuit of Happyness is set in France during the late 1990s. Three friends, played by Jeff Bridges, Ed Norton and Anne Hathaway, must race against each other to save the girl from a terrorist organization called “The Consignants.” The storyline centers around an arms deal gone bad. You might be confused as to why this movie went under the radar, but the truth is that it was one of the most successful comedies of the decade.
The movie begins with a short introduction where the three friends are walking down a street and meet a girl named Alice (eds. Vanessa Williams). They ask her if she likes apples. Alice replies that she does, so the three friends set off to find her some fresh ones. Along the way, they bump into Nic Cage and shoot him with a paintball gun. The next day, Alice realizes that Cage had been framed by The Consignants and sets out to get proof.
The Consignants is based on the true story of a con artist named Alex Cross. He is played by Brad Pitt, who happens to have co starred in the same film as Jones, another hit comedy. The movie follows Alex Cross as he tries to navigate society and get back with his wife, played by Pamela Anderson. Alex Cross falls for Pamela Anderson’s friend, Madea, played by Selena Gomez. The two end up dating, but things go bad when Pamela calls Alex “stub” and asks him to lie about his background and how he became a con man.
The third segment of the Love Actually movie is the part that you have all been waiting for. Cross and Madea have a passionate sexual encounter, which spills over onto the bed and gets them arrested by the police. Alex decides to run away to join the Consignants, while Madea hides at the family home with her father, who happens to be a member of the group. Things don’t go well there either, and the father ends up getting killed by one of the other Consignants.
Overall, 99 Francs is a funny movie that contains a lot of social commentary. The main characters are very typical and often depicted as oversocialized individuals with an accent towards the yuppie lifestyle. It is a bit too serious for many viewers, especially after the ending. However, those that can take a light-hearted view of the advertisement business will find this film to be highly entertaining. Movie lovers that like to see political incorrectness will definitely enjoy 99 Francs, a 2021 satire that takes the public school system to task.
