I was expecting this to be mildly amusing at best, a bit sophomoric, and average storyline. Instead I was completely entertained and engrossed. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it as well. It's not just another immature comedy - the characters are complex and you feel empathetic toward them. It was quite moving in parts. If you enjoy films about an underdog or struggling to find your way through

Patriacia I Love this movie I want the sound track and DVD, I watch this movie every day. I loved the bathroom sene when he put the wash cloth over his eyes, got wet and rolled off the roof, I laugh so hard and cried when he sang for her. But what do I know I'm a hopless romantic fool.

This movie was pretty funny! I totally enjoyed it. I loved the part in the bar when they were dancing to nasty girl. Great flick. I'd watch it again.

You can't miss using your time to watch a Steve Carrell movie. I'm watching "Dan in Real Life" right now so I'm unble to give my complete opinion at this point in time. So its back to the living room to finish a fun movie. Kinda strange for me to be writing when I haven't really even seen the movie yet, huh!! Ohwell, I'm not really a strange person, I just never do this kind of thing anyway,
