I almost didn't watch this movie. Kareena Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor aren't quite the draw for me personally. Add to it, the reviews had been less than stellar and I didn't want to watch a badly made chick-flick when I could use those 2 hours to sleep or read instead...color me pleasantly surprised!

Where the first movie wasn't a shoo-in for the comedy of the year award, it was still entertaining and doesn't fail to elicit chuckles on reruns on tv. But the sequel has a couple of things which make it one of the … Continue reading Movie Review: Welcome Back…Erm Don’t
