This is a genuinely interesting idea, filled with dramatic possibilities, but the movie approaches it on the level of a dim-witted sit-com.

The comedy was out of date before they even made this, no matter how much they try and twist the ending.

Ultimately its refusal to tackle any real issues makes this a thoroughly bland American comedy.
