The film's most engaging character is not actually human: It's Manhattan, of course, a point made repeatedly over that protracted dinner by the voluble lovebirds. show more
A great many of these individual scenes are funny... But the film fails to do what those rare, immortal rom-coms get right: take all its individually pleasing ingredients and make a satisfying movie out of them. show more
The characters, the situations, and the story are whatever they need to be in the moment to launch whatever joke the movie feels like telling at that moment. This is Wain and Showalter working in “Wet Hot American Summer” spoof mode, and if you're a fan of that movie, you may well like this one as well. show more

I usually write mini Twitter reviews but I couldn't resist this one. Paul and Amy even seemed embarrasses to say some of the lines--and not because they were R rated. This movie wasn't funny or intriguing. I kept thinking what a waste of talent.

The title suggests they come together, but the movie never comes together, which is why we left after 30 minutes. This is yet another example of why there should be a law that the writer cannot also be the director because of total loss of objectivity (and sanity). In short, it tried toooo hard to be funny, with crude scenes like a grown man crapping in his pants or a man accidently crashing through an office window. No chemistry between Judd with a grin in his face that said he was taking the money and running after its completion, and Poehler with her SNL burnish. Had the story been more serious like You've Got Email with some class, it would have been different. The fresh air outside was a welcome relief from the suffication inside.
