Orlando Bloom and Kirsten Dunst star in the new flick, Elizabethtown - a story that follows Drew Baylor's (Orlando Bloom) life-changing journey after his dad dies. Get the review right here!

Elizaebthtown - If It Wasn't This, It'd Be Something Else

Drew has spent the majority of his adult life developing the perfect shoe. It looked like eight years of hard work was finally going to pay off when his design was distributed around the world, but then catastrophe struck. His shoe was recalled and he lost his job. So, just as Drew thinks he's hit rock bottom, he gets a call from his sister telling him his dad has passed away and that he needs to go get his body from Elizabethtown, Kentucky.

Elizabethtown - Son of a Mitch

On Drew's flight down to Kentucky, he is chatted up by the perky flight attendant, Claire (Kirsten Dunst). When they land, Claire gives him her contact info, but you half-expect that they'll never see one another again. Then, after a long day of meeting relatives and deciding funeral arrangements, Drew finds Claire's number and calls her up. This next scene really sets the tone for the rest of the movie. Instantly it's as if Drew and Claire have known one another forever and an unconventional love begins to blossom.

Elizabethtown - Corn Bread and Fried Chicken

Although the relationship between Drew and Claire is the center of the movie, there's a lot more going on besides a mushy love story. Arriving in Kentucky, Drew is reunited with his father's relatives and hometown. He begins to realize how much he didn't know about his dad and is eager to find out as much as he can now. There are some really great supporting characters that add a lot of laughs to the flick, like Drew's hippie cousin Jessie and the lively wedding party staying at Drew's hotel

Elizabethtown - DVD Features

This DVD isn't packed with crazy extras, but you do get a few interesting features to check out. There are extended scenes featuring Drew's quirky cousin Rusty and a Meet the Crew featurette that are definitely worth watching. Also spend a few minutes flipping through the picture gallery for some extra shots of Orlando and Kirsten!

Elizabethtown - The Bottom Line

Elizabethtown is not a rock 'em, sock 'em adventure movie. It doesn't have car crashes or buildings being blown up. It's a thoughtful story that plays out in its own good time. If you're not in a patient mood, you may get annoyed that things don't wrap themselves up more quickly. But, if you go into the movie ready to enjoy a well-written story, you will be rewarded. It ends the way you would want it to, but doesn't necessarily get there the way you thought it would.
