Considering the source material (real life of writers Barry Levinson and Valerie Curtin, and the caliber of stars, Hawn and Reynolds, this comedy is disappointingly shallow and predictable.

The script plods through autobiographical self-indulgence with some warmth but too few laughs.

Thin story collapses under the leaden star chemistry; capable supporting players can't save this dud.

Even when Best Friends isn't working uproariously as a comedy, there's an element of original, offbeat humor that keeps it promising.

Though engaging and agreeable, the film is never wildly funny.
