[It's] like watching 10 minutes of There's Something About Mary, followed by 10 minutes of High Fidelity, followed by 10 minutes of Friends.

Every truly successful raunchy romantic comedy has at its heart a couple worth rooting for. This one doesn't.

If all of this strikes you as funny, then you probably don't get out much.

It's Stiller who seems to take the biggest hit, revealing the fact that his career has entered a stale state of self-parody.

Even allowing for toilet humor, long a prerequisite for mainstream comedies, the humor in 'Along Came Polly' doesn't have much texture.

Stiller and Aniston are trapped in the constrictive material, trying to make the best of a crummy, formulaic situation.

Stiller has turned into a submissive dog that rolls over the instant we settle into our seats, content to bask in our affectionate derision.

The flashes of life in this Ben Stiller-Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy don't come along often enough to rescue it.

Similar to the way in which Burger King's food doesn't so much "satisfy your hunger" as it does "fill your stomach with mass".

A movie that sets its comedy bar too low for the talents involved.

They win. The Publicity Machine has convinced me: Jennifer Aniston can heal the sick!

John Hamburg's remake of Something About Mary offers more of Ben Stiller's tiresome shtick.

Aids its cause with its inherent harmlessness, but the end result is too off-the-shelf to appeal to any but the most ardent romantic-comedy lovers.

For a movie with a theme of living life without deferring to fear of the risks involved, the filmmakers don't take chances in breaking the mold of run-of-the-mill romantic comedies.

Stiller anchors the movie in neurotic tension, literally squelching the laughs and snuffing them out.
