Hello.. I did some modifications on my review for Wayne's World 2 (1993). They were approved. However, the review on the movie's reviews page is still the same ! Here's the link of the approval, and the link of the present review (which's still the old one, with even the old title !).

Sorrowfully it isn't completely done, Michelle. My old review's title was : "The Red Dress, The Black Shorts and Charlton Heston !", and my new title was : "No straw can save a drowning man !". Strangely, the review still has its old title. And for more strange matters, my new title is written after the last line in the updated review !!

Hi Elshikh4 -

I just made an adjustment and the new title is now displaying (the title has also been removed from the end of your review), so all should be fixed now: https://www.imdb.com/review/rw2095461/?ref_=tt_urv


Cheers!

Hi, Michelle..
The same thing happened again today !

I did some modifications on my review for Nothing But Trouble (1991). They were approved. However, the review on the movie's reviews page has its title above it; which's natural, and after the last line of it too; which's totally unnatural !

I tried to delete that unneeded last line / my review's title, but the site didn't allow me at all. 

Here's the link of the approval:
https://contribute.imdb.com/contribution/190620-124436-540904?ref_=pe_3181150_242625130

And you'll notice that I didn't put the review's title: (The Worst and The Best Of (Nothing But Trouble)) after the last line of my updated review; which goes like this: "..Nothing But Trouble ?? No, it's the Trouble of having Nothing !" 

And here's the link of the review itself:
https://www.imdb.com/review/rw1696617/?ref_=rw_urv
Thanks in advance.

I ask that question, because I went to do some modifications on my review for Haywire (2011). Though, every time I try to submit the update, this very strange message shows up. It tells me not to write URLs, while I have no URLs at all in my review ??? So, what's the matter ? And how to submit my update ??????? And if the issue can be solved by deleting my review, then re-submitting it, then why not ? Please Help meeeee :(

I went to do some modifications on my review for Monsters vs. Aliens (2009). Though, every time I try to submit the update, the same URLs strange message shows up. I realy have no URLs at all in my old review, or the new updated one !! Plus, every other update I did on my older reviews, since month or even yesterday, went easily without that message !!!

Here's the link to my review:

This is my new review for You, Me and Dupree (2006), and you'll notice that it has no Square Brackets at all; if that is the problem anyway ! 

This is hard to finish; which is something that doesn't fit a comedy for a start ! 

Originally, it's the newly married suburban couple, mixed with a bugging innocent guy. On one hand, he's wacky; so he'll have some ironies between him and the married couple, and on the other, he's spontaneous; so he'll uncover some facts to complete the married couple. Theoretically it works, however this movie wasn't smart at dealing with its own winning formula. Instead, it falls over itself, producing insufferable time ! 

The comic sketches are totally uncreative, boring, unfunny and really really disgusting. I asked myself what's the need for nudity, dirty sexual humor, explosion of feces ?!! Apparently, the movie finds no way but being easy and cheap to be comic. It's how to sell untalented comedies these days. So when Wilson resorts to masturbating, just to express how sad he is, I got turned off utterly. This is filth for filth. His character says: "I hit the rock bottom by that". Well, at that point, you can say the same about the movie !

As for the rest of it, review for instance the third act: Dupree gives his friend / the husband a speech to make him bolder, the husband gives another speech to the father-in-law, as the movie's so-called big finish !, and the husband wins his love back by a third speech yet romantic. It isn't about being formulaic to scary extent, it is about the formula not being filled with anything witty, or rather anything. The finale looks so forced where Dupree, the movie's loser, tunes suddenly and unbelievably into a motivational speaker, while the frightening huge guard turns vaguely into his assistant ?!! I deemed it whether a violent mocking at the motivational speakers, or just something, anything, to end the movie with !


I'm board with Owen Wilson. This guy can't make a character, so all of his characters ARE THE SAME. And guess what ? It's not a droll one. He's incapable of making laughs, though he stars nothing but comedies ?? This time, he achieves a new level of silliness. Just remember his screaming at the classic movie, or his suspicious looks to all the schools' employees; THIS IS EXTREMELY BAD. I couldn't enjoy, believe, or stand him delivering awful performance, and having the same provoking image, tone, ..etc. Wilson.. you must change to last. Dye your hair, alter your forever way of whispering, play a villain role, I mean do anything else your unchangeable self. But that dude doesn't learn at all. Watch him 2 years later remaking Dupree as Drillbit Taylor !

Matt Dillon does it without much vitality. Casting him was weird since he's no comedian, and his seriousness wasn't used well either. Seth Rogen did a tepid character tepidly, and when his character searches for porn movies in the dump, then it's detestable. Michael Douglas had no comedy to perform, so they gave him some lines about willful sterilization to say, perfecting with the body's lower-half type of comedy in here. Dramatically the movie gives no reasons to the strange matter why this father-in-law needs no grandchildren. So how about the same character, simultaneously, talks and talks about how he fears that his own surname, which he put in his son-in-law's surname, may disappear ?!! See how stupid this movie is !

I won't talk a lot about the direction, since I don't like to beat a dead horse. But come to think of it, the angles are all one; movies have to show what's more than sitcoms. The atmosphere has no distinguished point. The soundtrack can't be more lifeless. So, with no new events, it loses being both surprising and attractive. Therefore, I wanted it to end since its half, in fact it ended for me there !

It insists on using the poor ways to do everything. And the outcome is a repeated form, filled with ridiculousness and some loathsomeness as a renewal. In other words, Owen Wilson produced a movie to iterate himself, yet make us board and sick. It gives the feeling of someone sitting beside you, alleging painfully to be laughable, while babbling dully and farting endlessly ! 

You, Me, and Dupree is garbage. The thing is most of Hollywood comedies today are !

Hi Elshik4,

I can see the problem here - the spaced ! is causing a false positive on the check. We have made the team aware, but in the interim if you try editing to remove those spaces in your review you may be able to get around the check.

Do you mean the space between the word and - for instance - the exclamation mark ??
