I really enjoyed this movie. I thought Jennifer Westfeldt’s script was fun and interesting in a way that romantic comedies usually aren’t. I absolutely love that she used actors capable of outrageous comedy and gave them more subtly amusing roles to play. Everyone did very well with the material, and I especially loved the choices Adam Scott made for his character. I hope he gets more starring roles because he is definitely capable of helping to carry a film.
I heard from a lot of people that this movie was pretty cliche. I disagree with that, even though the ending is predictable. I don’t think the endings of funny and romantic films need to be particularly shocking, so I don’t know why this is a problem. It was written in a very cute, funny, and touching way that made it completely satisfying for me.
I really admire Jennifer Westfeldt for being a rare example of a woman in the movie business taking on writing, directing, producing, and acting all at once. I’ll definitely be watching the other films she’s done in the near future.
