    Sigh...where do I begin? Just saw this on DVD, and in spite of funny dialogue and good acting, this movie doesn\'t work. Rachel may have made the choice she did if she were 16, but c\'mon man! She\'s 30. Hotness will not sway her the way it did. At 30, you want a guy who has seen you at your worst and still wants to be around you. A friend and confidante who tells you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear. And if he happens to be attractive and hilarious, slam dunk! But this is the life of little brown-haired girls in movies. They always get away with murder (Rachel sleeps with her best friend\'s fiance). There\'s a little cafuffle, but in the end butter won\'t melt in her mouth. And her best friend (Kate Hudson) is a slut who thinks nothing of straying. Convenient plot device but totally implausible. No way she\'d cheat on Dex, who is super hot and gets her motor running. The ending left me cold. Rachel is sneaky, immature and whiny. Dex is spineless. Darcy is unrealistically out-of-control. And Ethan (John Krasinski) is the guy of every 30-year-old woman\'s dreams. Darcy\'s revulsion at the thought of Ethan and Rachel hooking up is ridiculous.

    This movie makes no sense. How can all the guys like an ugly girl and fool around with your best friends fiance? No moral values regardless. I\'m only giving it a one star because it is unrealistic for all the guys to fall in love with an ugly girl that\'s no better than any of the other women characters. She might be smart but ugly, Why do they write such a stupid movie like this? Should every one else fool around and fall in love with their best friends finance? I don\'t think so! Dumb movie.

    My husband and I saw this movie when it first opened in spite of the critics\' reviews. Not only were we pleasantly surprised, we spoke about the flick long after it was over. The chemistry between the lead characters is spot on - a true joy to watch. Ordered the Blu-ray and am looking forward to having a movie day with friends tomorrow.
