An enjoyable, even heartwarming little movie that embraces its clichés and never lets them get in the way

The film jogs along uncertain whether it is aiming to be an episode of Friends or a Farrelly brothers farce. Overrun with fart jokes, it is fitfully funny and hamstrung by a sentimental and implausible plot.

It's a Generation X movie in a way very few movies are any more; it is unseemly to admit that our generation is about as slackery as we had promised to become. Go with your ex and smile.

It's a good formalic romantic comedy. Nothing more.
