“Aloha”

A Look at the Movies

Rated PG-13

1 hour 50 minutes

Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Rachel McAdams, Bill Murray

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – I’m shocked! You can still find a warm and charming romantic drama even during this superhero season.

Look, if you prefer real people over comic book characters, I recommend you see “Aloha”.

Embittered former pilot Bradley Cooper’s back in Hawaii to unravel his mixed up love life.

If sharp dialogue appeals to your sense of sophisticated movie going, you’re in for a delightful time.

Cooper’s long ago love, Rachel McAdams’ now married to someone else, but their torch is still flickering with unfinished business.

There are so many exceptional performances including the always wonderful Emma Stone, the eager Navy Pilot Cooper puts into romantic orbit.

On a heavier level, “Aloha” explores the seldom seek conflict between the military’s love hate relationship with civilian contractors.

Bill Murray nearly steals the picture as an eccentric billionaire, who tempers his ruthlessness with a sensitive side.

What If I told you “Aloha’s” the work of moviemaking genius Cameron Crowe of “Jerry Maguire” fame. Remember “Jerry Maguire”?

“Aloha’s also a warm and wonderful human experience that deserves every one of its four stars.

“Aloha’s” one pleasure you don’t want to miss.
