Beautiful Disaster (2023) || Movie Review.
Watching this movie, I thought I was going to hate it and regret ever watching but instead I actually had fun watching the movie. This movie is not that bad like some people said, in my own opinion, it is a movie you watch to have fun, relax, go with the flow and just chill with it.
I have read some reviews about this movie saying that it was not done according to the adapted book and it was totally a different story. I can understand their pain in this aspect because I hate when Hollywood does not follow through with adapted books, it spoils the memories I have of the book. So, this made me reluctant to watch this movie at first, but I finally and it still wasn't that bad.

My Review And Rating.
This movie was unexpectedly funny and entertaining to watch. I thought it was going to be a messy kind of romantic movies Hollywood gives us these days but that was not the case. The director did an amazing job directing this movie regardless of the fact that the storyline of this movie did not follow the book religiously, it was still watchable and wasn't that bad. This movie is good romcom that will make you laugh and feel good about it.
The scene arrangements were excellent, the tone, mood and setting of this movie was fantastic. Also, the songs selected matched with story, mood and tone of the movie. The humor scenes were well portrayed that it was believable and also including the photo montage at the end. The film locations were beautiful, good environment. The twist and turns scenes in the story of the movie was well done, which made some of the scenes in this movie unpredictable.
The Cast of this movie did amazingly well,especially the two main characters. Their chemistry is strong and obvious. The rest of the supporting characters were also good except for Parker guy who I think is weird. Also, America and her boyfriend were fun to watch and they got me laughing hard during the Abby encountered Travis' junior. Honestly, I didn't know what to make of the scene.
Rating this movie, I will give it 6.7 out 10 stars. Is it a masterpiece? No, it wasn't but it's was good and entertaining. I enjoyed the movie from the beginning till the end. It was all easy flow, good comedy, simple twist, good steamy scenes and excellent cast. I love hate to love romance which is what this movie is about. If you are lover of Romcom, this movie is perfect for you. Ignore the negative reviews and give this movie a chance. This movie didn't try to be good hence why it was very enjoyable to watch.
