It's a simple case of boy meets girl, boy likes girl, boy goes on Facebook to find out about girl, boy realises that he is doing everything to please the girl to woo her, boy comes clean about not being himself and then they fall into each other's arms. I was expecting a romantic comedy with some jokes, but it's totally not funny and it just seems to drag after a while. Justin along was really dull in this movie and he didn't even attempt any witty lines. He just moans through the whole film, which is surprising as he actually made it himself. The impressive cast list got wasted because there not really in the movie that much, so you end up watching Sam, the main character, making a big deal out of a simple loving relationship. Waste Of Time!Round-Up:Brendan Fraser, Sam Rockwell and Vince Vaughn must have done this movie as a favour to Justin Long because I can't really see them reading the script and thinking to themselves "I Must Be In This Movie" because it's really not that good. It's obvious that Justin Long isn't that great at playing the lead because he was annoying in Die Hard 4.0 and pretty annoying in this movie. I was hoping for a light hearted comedy with loads of funny jokes, but I was totally disappointed.I recommend this movie to people who are into there Rom-Com's about a man who looks on Facebook to woo a girl and ends up doing everything for her whilst not being true to himself. 2/10

Blake P (ag) wrote: "Far From Heaven" only speaks in sweeping symphonies, cherry red Technicolor, and postcard optimism - it is gargantuan in its emotion, pleasing in its artifice. To say it is an homage to Douglas Sirk and his 1950s soap operatic conglomerates would be an understatement: though released in 2002, it is so authentic in its nuclear family-meets-trouble melodrama one could swear it were released in 1957 if it starred Jane Wyman instead of the inimitable Julianne Moore. The latter, putting on her most happily repressed face, headlines as Cathy Whitaker, an archetypal wholesome homemaker who seemingly has the perfect life. Her husband, Frank (Dennis Quaid), is the successful owner of a TV company, her children shining examples of the "Aw, shucks!" clich. The family, unquestionably, leads their wealthy social circle, housewives looking up to Cathy like she's a real-life Donna Reed, husbands thoroughly jealous of Frank's marital good luck. But things aren't as enviably flawless as they first appear. Though they've been happily married for years, Frank is becoming increasingly tortured by his hidden homosexuality - he's been able to keep it locked inside for his entire life, but as the film opens, he's wearing down. It doesn't take long before he visits a gay bar, before Cathy stops by his office late one night to bring him dinner and discovers him kissing another man. With her seamless personal life crumbling before her very eyes, Cathy is surprised to find herself progressively attracted to her gardener, Raymond (Dennis Haysbert), a black man committed to such a crushing job because the harmful segregation of the decade hardly allows for him to use his business degree in the real world. While most of the predominantly white town prefers to pretend that he doesn't exist, Cathy is infatuated by his charming eloquence - he presents her with a point of view completely foreign to her. As her marriage races to its last legs and the town begins viciously talking, Cathy is forced to consider whether pursuing such a controversial relationship is worth risking her seemingly invincible reputation. Todd Haynes isn't interested in making a new kind of 1950s melodrama; though he stirs in taboos aplenty (you can't release a film in 2002 and expect the usual vintage subtleties to work efficiently), every aspect is astonishing in its well-versed mimicry. Purposefully, the sets look like sets; the music, massively melodic and dramatic, speaks for the characters when manners forbid them to divulge their true feelings; the color palette, specifically planned by Haynes during the conceptual process (green and black are used during scenes of anxiety, vibrant autumn colors spread about throughout moments of clarity), is breathtakingly identical to the Technicolor pigmentation of the filmmaking era. One could watch the film simply for its emotional content; but for cinephiles with a fetish for Douglas Sirk, it's a goldmine of pitch-perfect homage. Its complete lack of irony and subtlety makes the photographic lust pop, its storyline, its acting, ripple through the body - there's a reason why "Written on the Wind" and "Imitation of Life" are such classics: the over-the-top, chintzy dramatizations are just too cinematic to resist on a sympathetic level. Haynes's remarkable dedication to stock dialogue allows for the underlying emotional context to sizzle; as Cathy inserts pet-names and breathy coos in-between each word for the sake of appearing like she's the perfect wife, we can increasingly see that it's all part of a faade that conceals her inner intricacies, which, during most of them film, are being torn apart. By never getting to express her dissatisfaction through dialogue, Moore's performance is heightened, Haynes's screenplay all the more deceivingly complex. It touches on the social issues of the 1950s (race most predominantly, homosexuality at a close second) with gusto films of the decade were not allowed to discuss, and yet "Far From Heaven" never feels like a modernization. It, instead, is an expansion of the artistic and cerebral ideas of the luscious subgenre. Moore is fantastic as a woman perhaps more real than Dorothy Malone or Lana Turner ever were; Haysbert and Quaid are excellent as the men she holds close to her heart but only lead her to nowhere. No matter where she turns, Cathy Whitaker will never be content. But her film long predicament is compulsively watchable, and as long as her life is lensed as if it were a part of an unusually decadent Photoplay session, that's good enough for me.
