    By creating likable characters and putting them in situations that seem plausible, if a bit of a stretch, the film succeeds where others of its genre fail. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    The kind of movie designed more for a has-been than a potential leading man, this slapdash dramatic comedy fits the now-established pattern perfectly: Your (Ryan Reynolds) committed performance is the sole reason to see it. show more

    The picture continuously shuffles moods like tunes on an iPod without ever making any lasting commitments. show more

    A very interesting movie that keeps your attention as you are always wondering what comes next. It also makes you wonder how you would react to some of the situations. Kind of twisted, but everyone can relate to some part of each character or situation.
