There is a lingering and persistent distraction throughout One Day which severely impairs the audience from becoming absorbed in the film. This is Anne Hathawayâ

Alright first off i never saw myself seeing this movie but i had to because its what my girlfriend and her friends chose and i knew from the start my night was over then. This movie sucked, it was seriously boring, i couldnt even believe howAlright first off i never saw myself seeing this movie but i had to because its what my girlfriend and her friends chose and i knew from the start my night was over then. This movie sucked, it was seriously boring, i couldnt even believe how much this movie sucked. The only reason i give it a 1 is because Anne Hathaway was in it and shes a good actress but this movie was definitely not her best. This movie was boring, stupid and the ending is really tragic. The story was dumb and made no sense at all. I didnt enjoy one secomd of this film, dont see this unless you wish to kill yourself with a stupid, tragic, horribly made romantic film with a dumb story, BOMB Expand

If there was one word to describe One Day it would be unmemorable. Its a film that you can forget as soon as you finish watching it. The story is generic despite the novelty of the way its told, its let down by some poor casting (AnneIf there was one word to describe One Day it would be unmemorable. Its a film that you can forget as soon as you finish watching it. The story is generic despite the novelty of the way its told, its let down by some poor casting (Anne Hathaway, Patricia Clarkson) and it just feels incomplete. It tells the story of Emma and Dexter who meet in the late 80s on the day they graduate university. From that point on the film shows you where there lives have taken them on the same day for 20 years. If this sounds interesting, it is....to start with. After a while it wears off and you realise you are getting snapshots of a story, it doesn't feel fully formed. The acting worked in parts but Anne Hathaway's ability to make British sound anything but does tend to annoy (especially if you're British). The film feels like its building to a grand purpose in its final moments but it never arrives. That may be the intent of the writer, the idea that life will continue but overall it just emphasises the point that the film is empty, toothless and a colossal waste of time. Expand

I don't know what to make of this film. The start of the film I found was so boring, accents seemed like people in Britain sound like pompous arses,and it took me a while to get into the film. It wasn't the greatest film at all but I wasI don't know what to make of this film. The start of the film I found was so boring, accents seemed like people in Britain sound like pompous arses,and it took me a while to get into the film. It wasn't the greatest film at all but I was surprising left feeling "affected" by this film, I realised how grateful I am that I have and can bear my own children without any worries and that life can be over just like that. That surprised me, the twist in the story. Best part of the film, was the ending. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Art is a promise. "Stendhal" Promises of One day A somewhat average looking woman, but kind of holds something special in her. Not quite tangible (1. you can be special even if you are average). She is good natured and somewhat pure. She meets drunk cool/jerky guy at the night of graduation and they go in her flat, nothing happened they just shared the bed and decided to be friends. They part ways but remain friends with somewhat special connection. He proceeds to have rich boy, somewhat showbiz next few years, he **** a lot and does quite a bit of drinking and some other drugs. She works cheap jobs to survive but all the time wanting to write. She hooks up with some guy that worked with her in some cheap dining place, he is good natured and caring, but nothing else. After a while she breaks up with the dude and goes to Paris. There she founds a French guy and has somewhat shallow relationship with him. The cool guy goes to meet her in Paris, unaware of the situation and bummed from end of his serious (sort off) relationship. Now is the big promise, the meeting was portrayed with the female in dominant position, where she feels power shagging in shallow relationship while man has some shame from his previous endeavors(2. Strong chain on women's freedom - inability to shag without getting a stain on your vagina IS NO MORE, while man who had that privilege HAS LOST IT). Cool guys mother is sick. She is dying. Before her death he visits, sometimes under influence. She is disappointed in him, mostly with his career choice - host of a show that young watch in late hours, with women in cages dancing and stuff. She dies, making him very unhappy(3. Not fulfilling others expectations will horribly backfire and the best thing is to walk the shown road). Somewhere here I dozed off but I suppose they end up together and become happy and stuff(4. Even if you are average, someone will see something special in you, and it is possible that even the strongest among the men can find beauty in you and that they will obey you and change under your influence). TLDR - and conclusion-big teenage girl **** that I watched because female friend of mine (after this ex-friend) nominated this as best movie ever against my nomination: Korean "My sassy girl", if you want a good movie go watch that **** You might like this movie, but he will not teach you nothing good, this movie makes a world worse place. For humanity sake it would be better if this movie was never made and that messages that it sends never lived. In other aspects an OK film, but I don't care for that **** so I give it a 3. Expand
