I've always had a soft spot for this one, and well done romantic comedies in general. Yes, they are lightning rods for criticism, sometimes bordering on schmaltz and/or formulaic. However, 'Definitely, Maybe' avoids all that reasonably well, and is as entertaining for me as the classic films of this genre from yesteryear, with a script peppered with funny lines, a great cast, and an endearing plot. A young girl (Abigail Breslin) demands that her father (Ryan Reynolds) tell her about the time he met her mother, and why it is that despite falling in love then, they're now heading for divorce. Reynolds agrees under the condition he won't reveal which of the women in the story of his past ultimately became her mother. Told in a flashback, we see his early years working on the Bill Clinton presidential campaign, and the women in his life (Elizabeth Banks, Isla Fisher, and Rachel Weisz). All of the principals turn in strong performances, with Isla Fisher in particular dialing up her considerable charms. The subplot of collecting old editions of 'Jane Eyre' with inscriptions in them, along with the scene with the line "I kept the book because it was the only thing that I had left of you" is touching. The proposal scene in Central Park is also fantastic. Director Adam Brooks captures some great shots in New York and includes a great soundtrack. This is a smart, funny, and entertaining rom-com.
