    I just loved this movie, have watched it 3 times already on cable. Justin Long and Drew Barrymore are just great together, I don't think it was offensive at all I'm a 48 yr old female.

    This had the possibility of being a good movie however I hate listening to foul language and having to PAY to hear it is just too much. I think that the writers must not have a concept of the English language as they can't seem to express feelings without gutter talk. What gives??!! Very very disappointing!

    okay wow, these skip its are just, wow. IT IS RATED R, what do you think that stands for exactly really sweet? come on people rated R means only adults can see it, so moving right along. its a good movie, its funny and sweet, it puts the funny moments in just when its needed. i rather enjoyed myself, OF COURSE, i dont think you should only kiss on the cheek in public, and sleep in twin beds unless trying to make a child, i dont think every four letter word is a sin. if any of that qualifies as the way you view the world i suppose you should skip it. However if your a person who can take a RATED R movie then its great. geeze people i swear
