This is a tale of difficult choices and wistful decisions, of trying to choose between two types of love when only one is possible. It is touching without being sappy, and beautifully photographed.

This comedy is content to enjoy the beguiling antics of Ms. Aniston, who is as skillful here as she is miscast, and to let its colorful minor characters give it a sitcom spin.

While some of the solutions are a little facile, the film nevertheless succeeds, due in large part to a luminous performance by Jennifer Aniston...

The film effectively drives home the point that, when forced to choose, most people - even nice ones - will chase their own dreams instead of fulfilling someone else's.

Aniston manages to cast off her plastic TV persona, and delivers layered depth and pure emotion.

This is a more than mild laughter - on par with and what many viewers and critics will compare to last year's My Best Friend's Wedding
