|06.02.06||Cinemark Pflugerville|| I can totally see why most people wont like this... It's sold as a romantic comedy but it doesn't have a happy ending. Actually, I think the epilogue scene was put on in an effort to placate the masses a bit... and it just doesn't work. Everything up to that last scene though... is pretty good. It's just a this-is-how-life-is movie instead of a how-life-should-be romantic comedy.|
With most romantic comedies, I look forward to the supporting cast more than the leads. Usually they're the main sources of humor in otherwise sap-fest boring movies with exactly the same story. This movie has an awesome supporting cast. Joey Lauren Adams, Close Hauser, Jon Favreau, Jason Bateman, Judy Davis, Justin Long, and Vincent D'Onofrio all do a hell of a lot with what they're given...
so... yeah. I liked it, even though it's like an anti-romantic comedy so all of the housewives will hate it.
