I had only seen one trailer for this film, and it was a few months ago that I saw it. The film looked funny, however it has slipped under my radar ever since. So when I found out that one of the local theaters were getting this film, I didn't recognize it at first, but I became excited when I realized what it was.
The film was an enjoyable rom-com. In this movie, I laughed as hard as I have laughed in theaters since "Deadpool" (I do realize that was only a month ago, but I have seen a lot of movies since). I laughed so hard in parts that I almost fell out of my seat. The film followed a relatively normal romantic comedy plot, but the writing put a few spins on some of the tropes, which I really liked.
Sally Field and Max Greenfield had great chemistry in the film. Sally Field's character, Doris, was very well-written and likable. Greenfield is extremely funny. I began to like him when I used to watch "New Girl" and I really liked his small supporting role in "The Big Short". There are also good supporting performances by Wendi McLendon-Covey, Stephen Root, and Tyne Daly.
The film was also very well made. I thought that the cinematography was phenomenal and creative, capturing the emotions of the characters very well. The score was also very good and catchy; I often found myself humming it in my head during the film.
So overall, I was very much pleased by "Hello, My Name is Doris". It was extremely well-made and enjoyable. If you are lucky enough to be able to catch this film, you should.

I look at films as if through old red and blue 3D glasses— one lens is as art, one lens is as entertainment.
