    How can any movie go wrong with Paul Rudd? It is a cheesy, sentimental movie... but the kind of cheesy and sentimental movie Paul Rudd is able to pull off with the likes Craig Roberts and Salena Gomez. just get you some tomato soup and enjoy a big dose of grilled cheese... grilled cheese and Paul Rudd... 2 great classics!

    A heartwarmingly funny and cute story of self discovery and friendship.

    Another of those quirky little indie movies that try so hard to please Sundance, and while I really like it in its first hour (especially because of its performances), it almost sinks in its third act when it starts to give in to unnecessary clichés and some cheap sentimentality.

    Pretty much exactly the film you'd expect from the poster and trailer; predictable, emotion tugging and "too easy". The endearing charm and likeability of Paul Rudd notches it up to something better than it really is.
