    I dont know it was a "feel good" movie, yet a little overplayed. I did laugh out loud on several occasions so I consider the money well spent. SJP's role was not too unlike her role in SITC...just a tad more prudish. Overall I would suggest waiting until the DVD comes out...would be a good Sunday night flick at home.

    The only interesting thing about that movie is Rachel McAdams.

    Rachel McAdams is so damned cute, but if this movie's a stinker...well my girl-crush will just have to wait til she's in a better film.

    This movie is not very good, I went into it really wanting to like it but I just could'nt. There was way to much stuff going on and it goes from being a comedy to having me cry at the end, I just don't get it. I would wait on this one till it is released to video!

    I agree. Wait to see it as a rental. Something just was off about it but its worth a rental.

    Well said. I went into it expecting a lot more from the casting and although it did make me laugh several times (and close to crying at the end), the story line totally self destructed as soon as Claire Danes stepped off the bus. If it would have stayed close to the comedy theme, instead of the romantic/dramatic, it would have been a lot better.

    Although, any good laughs are worth it as far as I am concerned, so I wasn't overly disappointed by it.... there's several memorable laughs in this. Can't clear my throat ever again and not be self-conscious about it.

    Hmmm
    I have one girlfriend telling me she was very disappointed in the movie and really didn't enjoy it at all.

    My other girlfriend told me she loved the movie and plans on buying it on DVD.

    I'm torn. I may go see it.
