I was surprised how much I liked this film, as I went in with trepidation about whether it was going to be some cheesy chick flick or bad book adaptation. But to my surprise, there were some genuine laughs to be had. Not belly-busters like you might get with an over-the-top comedy like Borat, but good times had by all. The film clocks in at a solid 2 hours of entertainment.
It’s a great date movie (for first daters or long-time relationship folks), and shouldn’t lead to any dangerous post-movie discussions about where your particular relationship may be headed. It’s a great film for the women to hit on Ladies Night Out, but it’s not one for the guys to see on their own.
One thing I found amusing was Kevin Connolly’s part, which is almost a complete 180 from the character “E” he plays on Entourage. If you’ve watched the HBO show, you’ll know what I mean.
