Excellent film. Funny, sad and uplifting (by jamesbuckland-55560)
Loved this film. I'm not ashamed to admit it made me cry so much. Also laugh a lot as well! The story of the friendship of these two characters was beautiful,sometimes hilarious, to watch. And the story of how one battles with cancer is heartbreaking, particularly in the last scenes. Toni Collette is the stand out star, giving one of the finest performances of her career so far. She gets excellent support from Drew Barrymore and the rest of the cast. Frances de la Tour has a lovely little cameo. It is beautifully shot, the scenes on the moors of Yorkshire being particularly gorgeous. I <more>
highly recommend it if you want a heartfelt and moving cinema experience.
The story line and acting was absolutely amazing. I was engaged in the movie from the beginning to the credits. The story line was realistic, coherent and relatable to the struggles some suffer. This movie brings awareness to life issues that are hard to imagine, yet you can feel these in this movie. All actors did an outstanding job playing their characters. The setting was fantastic as well. I do not want to spoil the movie so I won't say more details! I am very picky with the movies I watch and all I can say is that it is worth watching!!!
One of the sadness but funniest films I've seen. (by abraham37)
"Miss You Already." Just from the trailer there is knowledge of sadness in this film. What I didn't expect was the amount of humour! Which doesn't take away from the main point to the film. I thought that this film was going to be all tears, but I was so surprise about how much I enjoy it. This is a heart-warming film that most people could relate to. Being 16yrs old this film is now one of the movies I will remember. The cast seemed to have such a bond it makes the film even better. Please go to see this film as it is amazing. Never thought I would cry in the cinema, but <more>
Miss You Already had me in tears of laughter and sadness.
The low ratings are surprising. This was beautiful film in every way. It's sad but also warm and even funny at times. If you are in the mood for a soul nourishing tear jerker, this film will deliver.
Underrated (by assassinelena)
Greeting my friends. I've rated this movie with an 8. It wasn't a big production, it wasn't fancy, it wasn't based on a biography at last! , it was based on real life events something that unfortunately many of us have experienced in our own families. Great acting. Greatly approached. Good sense of humor, at the right place at the right time. Cancer is a taboo word, we are afraid to say it we are afraid to think about it and we surely do not know how to cope with it. In my opinion the film industry doesn't appreciate enough good movies like that particular one in fear of <more>
upsetting people. As far as Toni Collette is concerned she was great, one of the best female performances of her career and I believe she should have been considered for a nomination for the Oscar awards.She and Drew Barrymore made a perfect match. Haven't seen something like that since Terms Of Endearment with Debra Winger.
It makes you want Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore do more things together because they really are a nice duo (by alexcomputerkid)
Even with her at times making disastrous films and even when her career was pretty much dead in the 90's, I have always supported Drew Barrymore. I grew up watching her in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and it surely put her on the map. I have found most of her comedies especially the ones with Adam Sandler to be very unfunny but still found other comedies of her's like Going the Distance and Fever Pitch to be at least watchable. Even in such a small role, her being in the first Scream was such an iconic scene for horror and herself. Miss You Already is such a nice step for her and <more>
something completely different from the usual films we get from Barrymore.Milly Toni Collette and Jess Barrymore have been lifelong friends after Jess moves to England in her childhood. Even with different personalities, they have always supported each other. Now Miley is diagnosed with cancer and Jess having her first child, the two must bond together at such an important time.It will always be a classic film but Toni Collette was really the unsung hero of Sixth Sense. She has been in so many roles and will always have that "mom" vibe. Her character, Milly in this movie brings so much to the table. She is a part rocker, part mom, and part cancer patient. You go through so much with this character and it is really hard not to like her even when she goes through some rough spots. Even with Barrymore bringing that same vibe that she does with every character that she plays, it is still a likable character and you root for her every step of her pregnancy. Also there are good actors like Paddy Considine and Dominic Cooper in the secondary roles.Miss You Already works on so many levels but being set in Britain helps a lot along the way. The movie is able to use good British humor and British culture that supplements the plot and is important because this is so different for Barrymore who proved she can be effective in a movie with a British plot. Miss You Already has a lot going for it. It makes you want Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore do more things together because they really are a nice duo. The film likely is going to get overshadowed this weekend by new release Spectre and The Peanuts Movie and that is kind of a shame.
about the film and my thoughts (by caramarchant-02974)
I wont tell you all the spoilers!if you watch this film you'll need your tissues! this film is so sad but also so funny!films that have the harsh topic of cancer shows the nasty and violent sides of it. they don't normally show the side of the last few memorises that are made and how it can happened to anyone and at what ever time. Milly and jess have been best friends since they were young and have always been together. Milly becomes ill with cancer and doesn't tell anyone for a couple of weeks until she tells jess before telling kit and her children. at the same time jess and <more>
Jago are having trouble having kids and so they decide to have IVF but jess keeps putting it off as she knows Milly is ill and Milly needs her. Milly finally begins to tell everyone and begins treatment. jess and Jago have IVF and finally have a baby! but Milly take the happy moment as she needs jess. Jago has to go out to the oil tank to work extra as money is tight and IVF is a lot of money. jess doesn't want to tell Milly because she doesn't want to rub it in that her life is great at this time. the film goes on and some big things happened I wont say but finally Milly goes back to the doctors thinking she was clear but the cancer had spread everywhere in her body and so she wanted to talk to jess and clear the air. Milly become to sick to live in the house as she didn't want the children to see her like that and finally passes away in a home for the sick with jess by her side and passes away peacefully in her sleep. jess finally wakes up and kit walks in and he begins to cry and hold Milly. a couple months later jess is pregnant with her second child and it is very hard for her to find a replacement best friend but she is working on it.this is a great film but I personally don't like Milly, the character of Milly is rude and only really cares about herself. but that is part of the film. jess who is played by drew Barrymore does a wonderful performance like normal so does Toni Collette! the cast is great and the film is also great. I personally think this film is for the girls with a box of tissue and a box of chocolates!
