Movie Review: Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

*This is a spoiler free review*

This was one of those movies that I had heard about but had never watched. I also had no idea what it was about.

About 10-15 minutes in I was loving it. I wasn’t expecting so much humor but it was amazing. Some of the story line was a bit predictable but in a good way. Frances McDormand did a phenomenal job as Miss. Pettigrew and Amy Adams was so good as Delysia. Her character is a bit annoying at times but not enough to make me dislike her. Also, Shirley Henderson is in it. If you don’t recognize her name, she’s Moaning Myrtle! (Judging from the movie, I think that is her real voice).

I can’t say much of course, for the sake of not spoiling it, but if you happen to be looking for a good rom com for a relaxing night alone or with friends this is a wonderful movie.

5 out of 5!

        Ha ha ha sounds good! I liked the first one a lot, the second one a little less. I mean, it wasn’t bad. The second one had Mark Darcy fighting in the water fountain, so I liked that part.

        Although there was something that really bugged me in the second movie (slight spoiler, but you’d see it in the trailer, anyway): after Bridget is imprisoned in Thailand, she’s talking about her break-up with Mark Darcy. The other girls talk about how they were beaten and Bridget then lies and says he did the same to her because she feels embarrassed about the reasons they broke up.

        To be fair, I personally think Bridget broke up with him prematurely. But some of the things she said were fair: she thought he was having an affair, and he refused to answer her; he didn’t defend her against his friends, he wouldn’t sit with her at his lawyer party thing. Not deal-breakers at all to me, but I felt that needed a conversation about why she was hurt/that was wrong kind of thing. Anyway, my point is, I felt like the movie was making it seem like you’re an idiot if you dump your boyfriend unless he’s beating you and forcing you to do drugs. Perhaps I read wayyyy too much into that, but that’s how I felt and it annoyed me.
