Segel is as vulnerable on screen as any actor I can think of in recent memory, and he bookends his character's journey as a writer just perfectly. It's a funny, lovely movie, and I look forward to more from Segel.

[The film] works, first and foremost because of Segel, who knocks it out of the park in both his first starring role and first produced screenplay.

Sure, the premise is contrived, as are most of the films from Apatow's production company. However, the human truths that emerge from these situations are rich enough to allow the vagaries of the plot. Segel lays himself bare here, especially during the

The difference between Apatow and Hornby is that Hornby has written at least one compelling female character.

The trademark Apatow mix of pasty, media-addled boy-men and the gorgeous, gorgeous women who badger them into an imitation of maturity already feels dated.

[D]eftly mixes raunchy, R-rated comedy with an intelligent, humane look at the foibles of the heart that's almost like something out of an Eric Rohmer movie.

A tropical sex comedy that's a little unfocused, but Segal and co throw plenty of funniness at the wall - and most of it sticks.
