Critic Review - Entertainment Weekly

I just don't know any chick who will make sense of this flick -- it's that blitheringly out of touch with present psychosexual (never mind feminist) time and space.

Psycho-sexual time and space? Did you pick up this pseudo-psychological term in a Daniel Goleman book? Do you understand anything about grief reactions and what the
obviously inexperienced Ms.Grant failed to articulate in her script? People very often fall in love/attach to their dead spouse's close friends quickly after that person's death. And what is so hard to understand about a woman not being privy to her obviously narcissistic boyfriend's trysts? Know any of the stories that emerged after 9/11?
Get over yourself, Lisa. You are so over-intellectualized and full of yourself that you fail to realize there are millions of people out there who just act on impulse and don't over-analyze. Not condoning this behavior, but these characters seemed sadly realistic and highly representative of who's out there.
By the way, ask a 25 year old for her definition of "feminism" and you will be blown away by how non-feminist it is.
Have liked most of your reviews over the years but you are getting really out of touch in your old age...and yes, I know exactly how old you are!
