Here's a safe prediction: movie critics are going to have fun with the title of If I Were You.

"If I Were You'' has more than its share of laughs, but director Joan Carr-Wiggin needed to cut half an hour to make this fly without interest flagging.

Harden is a wonderful actress but struggles to find the complexity in so strained a situation.

Buried in the bloat of Joan Carr-Wiggin's interminable "If I Were You" are the seeds of what might have been a lean, snappy farce about duplicitous, adulterous games.

The people responsible for a hapless load of bunk called If I Were You can only be described as delusional. They think they have made an actual movie, when nothing in it qualifies.

A screwball comedy for Canadians-not LOL funny, but as crazy as you might expect Toronto to get.

The film's comic sense (exemplified by a drunken Harden acting inappropriately) is slack and its dramatic conclusion unfulfilling.

If anything, that Harden shines in such a problematic starring role only reaffirms her stature.
