The film is like the romantic comedy version of Crash. Certain stories work, many don't and in the end you realize the movie is not better than the sum of it's parts. It is goofy but not funny and far from the "ultimate" romantic comedy. Ten Thing I Hate About You does all this better. It is also really mean spirited towards large people and while it tries to be coy about it, the fat shaming just feels outdated. Plus, come on they put Mr Bean on the cover for just a cameo while Andrew Lincoln, who has a big role here long before becoming Rick Grimes, gets nothing. However, I will give credit where it is deserved, Laura Linney and Emma Thompson are absolutely fantastic. They always are but they really give this film emotional depth that is sorely needed. Their stories and interactions with others are the main reason why I am glad I watched this film. An that speaks volume wo the fact that this is mostly a male driven film.
