    Contract Specialist Dilemma?

    The movie Aloha contains movie trailers for Ricki and The Flash, Infinitely Polar Bear, Testament of Youth, and Insidious Chapter Three. Bradley Cooper stars as an ambitious military contractor named Brian Gilcrest. Brian Gilcrest ends up unexpectedly falling for Captain Allison NG (Emma Stone) and unintentionally running into old flame Tracy Woodside (Rachel McAdams). The movie gives clues that things are about to get complicated when Tracy Woodside invites Brian Gilcrest for dinner with her husband John Woody Woodside (John Krasinski) and both of their children present (a big deal because this was shortly after her husband made it safe back from one of his missions). I understand that McAdams was only doing her job, but I was shocked at the directness of the plot. There are other actors that feature in the movie as well such as Bill Murray, Alec Baldwin, Danny McBride etc.

    The movie to me was okay, just okay! The Bradley Cooper - Emma Stone connection just didn't come off as anything approaching normal human interaction. Emma Stone was entirely miscast in the part of a fast-burner Air Force officer. I'm retired USAF and I promise you, young Captains, especially women Captains do not act nor conduct themselves in the demeanor she exhibited in this film. Except for her performance and a joke of a plot, the movie is watchable but you won't be bulled over with that feely good emotion at the end. It's average!

    I was drawn to this movie, basically, because I love Hawaii. The story was secondary to me. I know...silly. However, I was pleasantly surprised. I suppose I shouldn't have been with such a talented cast. The movie contained so many elements: love, growth, humor, human interaction and love of the land. The characters interacted excellently and the plot developed consistently throughout the film, as did the characters. I recommend this movie to everyone! It's a movie you feel good about watching!

    Interesting if uneven romantic comedy

    You don't see romantic comedies address the privitaization of military operations and have the protagonist yearn for a married woman. Aloha's ambition exceeds its execution. Overall it's still enjoyable, but Emma Stone is horribly miscast as a part native Hawaiian Air Force fighter pilot. Stone's performance is so genuinely awful it nearly derails the whole movie. Some nice supporting performances, snappy dialogue and a handful of emotional scenes save the film.

    Funny and Romantic - Even the Guys Liked It

    I bought this movie because of the cast, Bradley Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Emma Stone, etc. and was worried that it would be too much of a chick flick for my husband and son. I loved it, it was funny and touching. The guys liked it and when asked they said it was not what they would categorize as a chick flick; and of course my daughter and her boyfriend like it too ... so a great choice for me and my family.

    I realize some might find it lacking but we found it a refreshing movie which didn't require a lot of "following" twists and turns. Just a fun loving movie with some great characters and a nice romantic ending. If you're looking for something DEEP, move along, there's nothing to see here. On the other hand, if you want something refreshing, cute and romantic...it's a BINGO.

    The best scene of this story is at the end, when John Krasinski and Bradley Cooper have a wonderful encounter where no words are spoken and still a lot is being communicated. And Emma Stone is at her best in this movie; she's funny and a positive force throughout. Hawaii is like a character in this story and after having watched this film you'll love to book the first flight out!

    I wasn't sure how I felt the first time I watch Aloha but decided to watch it again when scenes kept slipping into my thoughts. I love this film. It is sad and funny and silly and touches your heart in nuanced ways that only this cast and director can pull off. Its a great story of redemption and trust set in the islands and well worth your time.
