I can't wait to see this! I really like Catherine Tate, since I'm a huge Doctor Who fan, and I LOVE Robert!

Steph is Legit said...

i love how rob is front and center even though the movie revolves around the 2 women in the background lol

ahh the power of pattinson.

did anyone see this movie? daniel gale is still my fav character that rob has played with tyler coming in close second

Nancy said...

I gotta get this one. Saw "Haunted Airman" Rob was excellent.

@Steph, waves Hi, long time no see.

Steph is Legit said...

hey Nancy!!!

i hope things are well.

I loved badmother's. it's a must see regardless of the fact that rob is in it. i think you can watch it online for free. i saw it awhile ago along with the haunted airman.. i think maybe yahoo has the vids? not to sure though i saw both about 2 yrs ago.

rpattzgirl said...

He has such a silly, nerdy little part in this movie, and just weaves his way right into your heart.

Daniel Gail really steals the movie..

I ♥ him!

Nancy said...

waves HI to Steph and RPG... Love ya gals.

Loisada said...

It's sad to see they don't even give Holly Grainger star billing on the DVD cover. Another case of blatantly trying to sell the movie off the later fame of Rob..... But in this case that's OK, because everybody should see this gem of a flic.

modestypatch said...

I loved this movie! Rob is amazingly adorkable in it. I will definitely be buying!

Nancy said...

I will check it out. Really. Must check all Rob's movies now. Stil need to see him playing in "LIttle Ashes"

Loved him as Cedric Diggory in HP. Was upset since I knew he would be killed off. Hoped he'd be in the rest of the movies.. but glad he's in Twilgiht Saga. Much better.

Nancy said...

My totally favorite books and movies are HP and Twilight.

Read them over and over and over. watch the movies over and over. Buy the DVD's. Have them all so far. So you have me, Summit and Warner Bros. I will buy anything related to Rob or my favorite books. Keep it up please.

evangeline said...

i look at the whole movie and i like daniel tight jeans,his parrot feet rob is all kind of sexy,and he was very convincing

korinneraylie said...

I agree with @Steph is Legit's comment.

Haha. When I first saw the cover I was like, "Whoa... That's a whole lot of Rpattz even though he's not really in it."

But I love him and this movie so I shrug and move on =]

HeartRob said...

LOL. It seems like, the two ladies look at Rob and they melt away. Ja ladies this is RobAttack or better JawAttack.
One could be jealous of this velvety skin.

I love this movie and the fact that Rob dares to such crazy characters.

WhyIstheRumAlwaysGone said...

It's excellent and I've had it for ages (UK version) but Rob never even appears in the small pics on the DVD back cover, least of all on the front cover. You have to get a microscope to find his name in the credits. It's true the film is mainly about the 3 women, and he's only a secondary role (although he's very good). They're really trying to sell it off Rob's name this time...

evangeline said...

whyistherumalwaysgone i agree with you is rob's name they are using to see there dvd but even though he has a very small part critics will look at it to see rob's acting so not bad for and that holly granger isn't she a prostitute in bel-ami and rob is now the lead actor look at how the table's turn

No, Art is in " How to be "

BR549 said...

I already own the UK version. It's a very good movie even though Rob's part is quite secondary. It's definitely about the 3 generations of women first and foremost. I think it's very misleading the way they are packaging this US version, but not surprised.

RobsessiveFILRP said...

@hearthrob sorry hon I guess I messed them up but I have watched it and want to see this

TotallyRobbed said...

@steph - yes, the picture has changed because of Rob's fame. I bought this earlier this year and Rob's not in the picture!

I will be interested to know if there are any extras on the disk, because there weren't any on the UK one.

Pelin said...

Those fingers on the cover of the book can't be Rob's fingers.
Why on earth do I always looking for his fingers in photographs?!!

Kelly Louise. said...

Daniel Gale should have been the main character. He was the only interesting one and it would have saved the film.

RobsessiveFILRP said...

@pelin bnde onn parmaklarına ellerine hastayım

Fiftyshadesofpink said...

Remember that this was a film made for TV, we saw it a couple of years ago here in the UK. Don't know what extras, if any, there could be in that case. I'm sure they'll manage to cobble together something Rob-related since that is the marketing angle they're going for.
I loved this on TV, and was ridiculed by my friends for my soft spot for adorkable Daniel Gale. Turns out I was right all along.

Pelin said...

Olunmayacak gibi değil ki, insanı 2 katı el fetişisti yapar, kimsenin eli beğenilmez Rob'dan sonra =)

RobsessiveFILRP said...

@pelin aynen yaaa o parmaklar ince-uzun başka ele bakılmaz ki onunkilerden sora bide dudakları ve saçları ahhh bi dokunabilsem

@fifty hi hon whats up

Pelin said...

RobsessiveFILRP

Ben komple, dvd gibi sipariş etmeyi planlıyorum. Bir yerini diğerinden ayıramadım henüz.

RobsessiveFILRP said...

@pelin sanırım biz biraz fenayız ama bende tamamını ve aslını yaknızca kendime istiyorum :D ROB

Pelin said...

RobsessiveFILRP

=) Biz mi fenayız?
Biz çok masumuz bence =)

In Bel Ami, Holly plays DuRob's second wife Suzanne AND Tonks from HP plays Rachel.

And even though it's misleading, of course plastering Rob's mug on the cover is all about marketing. But you'll hear no complaints from the lead actresses who've been pushed to the background. Because of him, their performances are now going to be seen in America (meaning Hollywood who doesn't search out YouTube looking for snippets of him). And how many made for tv films in England (this wasn't even a theatrical release. In the states this would be like an Afterschool Special) get released on dvd in America? I would imagine these actresses are thrilled while Rob is most likely embarrassed.

But I agree that he does steal the film. And that's not tunnel vision concerning him (I try to be real careful about that). He really does steal it. And my god, those loooooong legs. With the way they've got him dressed here, you can really see them.

RobsessiveFILRP said...

@nik the actresses cant do anything about this cuz he has an unbelievable fame so its normal for us I think they can accept it

RobsessiveFILRP said...

@pelin canım valla ben mesele Rob olunca pek masum düşünemiyorum hele Fiftyden sonra hiç olmuyo onunla öyle şeyler yapmak istiyorum ki... ;)

nikola6 said...

Robsessive...

Right. The actresses have no control here. My point was because of his fame, their performances are now going to be seen by a much wider audience (including Hollywood). So even though the marketing is misleading, they should have no complaints here. It's Rob who will be embarrassed when he sees his face plastered all over the front cover and the leads pushed to the background, although he'll understand why. But he has no control over it either.

RobsessiveFILRP said...

@nik yeah he has no control over it ad the actresses too this is under the control of fame and he didnt create it even he couldnt believe what peple says about him

AP said...

yeah, it's great its being released Stateside cause of Rob but I hate this blatant marketing that misleads about the amount of screentime he has. They could have 'featured' Rob on the cover without shoving the principals to the background, and Catherine's known to some audiences already, through HBO and cable. Ah, well, not my call....lol

Linda said...

You can see this movie if you Google it, they have it broken down in to 10 minute parts. The quality is bad, so I will be happy to add this one to my ever growing Rob collection (hidden behind my kids spongebob dvd's--my only escape).

Nancy said...

Wow, they have outpriced this one. greedy bastards. The cost for this 70 min movie is outrageous. The Twilight DVD's were a lot less. Guess I'll just rent it after all.

I will pay any price for RM when it comes out. Love that movie. Gotta have it.

Laurie said...

Not only do the actresses in this short film get another boost with the DVD but Holly got a part in Bel Ami I am guessing because of Rob's friendship with her from BMH. He is very generous when it comes to his friends. I love it and him.

I have watched this so many times on the Internet but I am happy to pay to get a copy of my own. Small part or not Rob is worth every penny.

niqu-uniq said...

i saw this movie a while back ago..when i'm completely obsessed with Rob after Twilight..i watch almost all of his movie..except The summer house..he is really sweet in BMH, they try hard to make him look like a geek..but those lips just wont do, when he smile or laugh.. those glasses means nothing to me XD
