Brooks is back with another warm, smart romance along the lines of As Good As It Gets. The snappy characters are well-played by a strong cast, which makes it steadily entertaining even if it's not hugely believable.
The whole mob yap away in self-absorbed therapy-speak for almost the entire two-hour running time, meaning anyone who lives outside the Beverly Hills nut-bubble - ie almost everyone - is going to be instinctively reaching for the fast-forward button.
At least half the film plays out at an acceptable level of amusement until its excessively repeated indecisions makes you hanker for the fast forward. This happens well before you reach the two hour mark.
