    While there were some chuckles in this movie and Julia Roberts portrayed her character competently,, this superficial, unimaginative and trite movie was shocking in that it was the work of Tom Hanks who has played so many complex characters with depth and reality. In this movie Tom Hanks couldn\'t seem to find his footing--was he a diffident, loser-type guy, a confident, revel in life\'s challenges kind of guy, or a sort of mindless, free spirited type. Either the combined tasks of acting and directing are either too big a challenge for Hanks, or he just doesn\'t have what it takes to direct anything but a mindless, unoriginal and not very good comedy. It\'s a sad chapter in an otherwise brilliant career for this usually inspiring actor. One star is a generous rating for this movie.

    Funny, a little quirky and a good film with two major stars. Never heard of it before finding it here but definitely worth a watch!
