At the movies: Love the Coopers

December 17, 2015

Love the Coopers

Charlotte and Sam Cooper aren’t getting along well.  They’re actually heading towards divorce, but want to hold things together for one more family Christmas.  Since this will probably be the last holiday the whole family is together, they want everything to be perfect.  Of course, things don’t turn out the way they planned – they turned out even better.

Love the Coopers is a pretty typical representation of a certain kind of holiday movie.  An all star cast plays a family in a movie that is predictable, just a little cheesy, and quite heartwarming.  It’s fun to watch but, in the long run, doesn’t have a lot of substance and is pretty forgettable.

I liked this movie when I saw it – it made me laugh and smile – but when I started to write about it, I couldn’t remember much about it.  Still, it was fun and is worth watching when it hits the streaming services.

    I’ve watched a few movies that I couldn’t remember much about afterwards. This looks good though.

    I’d watch a holiday movie that would make me smile/laugh. I’ll put it on our netflix queue.

    Sounds perfect for this time of year!

    I agree with Julie – sounds totally perfect! And the forgettable part is good too, so one can watch it again next year!

    I was just talking to someone this weekend who really enjoyed the movie and said the same things you did.

    This sounds better than I thought it would be. I’m not a big fan of slapstick. But this appears to have some heart.

    Sounds like a fun holiday movie!

    Sounds like it could be a fun movie.

    I’ve had my eye on this one, but haven’t yet seen it…waiting for it to hit Amazon Video streaming, I think. I always enjoy Diane Keaton, though.

    I will watch this one

    Sometimes I’m in the mood for a heartwarming forgettable movie. 🙂

    These are the perfect moment, season movie.

    The reviews weren’t great so I’m not surprised. I’ll watch it at home sometime.

    I saw this one at at screening in October and I’d be hard pressed to write about it too. Didn’t leave that great of an impression unfortunately. What made me want to see it is I heard it was based on the YA holiday book Let it Snow. If it is based on that book they completely rewrote it!

    I like playing spot the star in these kinds of movies. I can’t remember too much about the plot either, just the title and who was in them.

    I would watch this one just for the fun of it. These kind of movies are great ways to pass time during the holidays.

    It sounds like a fun rental. Did you see Brooklyn yet? How is it?

    I don’t even remember hearing about this one. Looks perfect for the holidays!

    I want to see it but with the theaters dominated by The Force Awakens, I probably won’t get to it this year, which means it will be a DVD watch for me next Christmas.
