    While Heigl is terrific, this uninspired romantic comedy is considerably less so. show more

    Mostly silly and always frothy, as sugary at times as wedding-cake frosting but tempered with a welcome strain of sour grapes, mostly doled out by the peerless Judy Greer as Jane's cynical, slutty best friend. show more
