Holidate thespians Emma Roberts and Luke Bracey reunite in this lukewarm romantic comedy that features solid veterans in Diane Keaton, Richard Gere, William H Macy and Susan Sarandon.
Michael Jacobs’ Maybe I Do mostly cheats viewers of a funny, interesting and insightful experience starting from snatching a bouquet at a wedding.
It’s clear with very few exceptions that being in the presence of Michelle (Roberts) and Allen (Bracey) as well as Keaton’s Grace, Gere’s Howard, Macy’s Sam and Sarandon’s Monica is just too shallow and obvious. As they finally get to know one another over dinner and sort out their emotional baggage of parental indiscretions. For those who figure out the source of it all Jacob’s effortful work with esteemed comedy is the stuff of trite dinner theatre.
