  • A brash romantic comedy that has a serious purpose at its core. show more

  • Smart, funny and often viciously cruel, this is a romantic comedy for people who are too old to believe in fairyales but wise enough to accept a happy ending when that's what life gives them. show more

  • It's a case of actors and strong writing coming together, and it's uncommon in contemporary movies. show more

    I think this was one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. Jack did a fantastic job as this character. It is his best performance in a comedic role. Period. Great role too.
