Is whimsicality the last refuge of the mediocre?
| Original Score: D+
Only sporadically entertaining.
The first contemporary romantic comedy I've seen in years that feels as if it's made by a real human being for other real human beings.
One can't fend off the feeling that we've been here before, and with some regularity.
Except for Jimmy ... these are not very interesting folks and, at first, it's hard to keep them all straight or even care.
In its own modest, genial terms, the picture succeeds.
| Original Score: 4/5
The actors are good enough to make it all work.
The screenplay is a shade smarter than that of the average romantic comedy, and there are plenty of funny lines and scenes.
| Original Score: 3/4
While you sense the writer lurking behind these twists and oddball moments, the film is not without its shaggy charm.
