A little slow moving in places. Owen Wilson's character was a mildly irritating - specially with a closet of jumpers!
Thought Reese was a little under challenged.
Good Sunday afternoon-killer; or date movie though.
How could such good actors accept taking an acting role in such disappointing movie, I have no idea!!! Halfway through the movie and still waited to see if it was going to get any better, but just got more disappointing!
a big fat zero - on this occasion, the masses have got it right - this was terrible.
This film was so bad it made me nauseous and I could'nt watch it all. Pity, because Rudd, Witherspoon, Wilson and Nicholson are better than that.
boring and very slow to get going...
Quite possibly the worst film I've ever seen. Good actors here but the characters they play, not so good. The film has no heart. The main character played by Reece has no personality! Parts of the film are just plain weird. Don't bother!
Top actors in this but don't bother - long boring nothing movie!!
Typical boy meets girl kind of love story. Not very funny and a bit predictable but overall a 'nice' movie
Sorry Reese fans, but this one's a bit of a dud. Don't bother.
I LOVE Paul Rudd but he's really pushing the friendship with this one. Signing up for a Reese Witherspoon rom com??? What was he thinking?
This movie is soooooo boring. It is extremely slow moving with nothing but actors talking about nothing throughout. I struggled through the first hour of this movie (including fast forwarding) but found the same things were being talked about. Follow the advise of others who have posted and DO NOT hire this movie.
Okay. Definitely not the finest piece of work of any of these actors.
Worst movie! Pointless and boring! I thought it might be ok since Reece Witherspoon is in it, but no worst movie!
Seriously I cant believe Reese Witherspoon would even be interested in a script so bad. The whole movie was pointless. Avoid!
Girl meets two guys from very different backgrounds. Umms & arrhs for most of the movie as to who she'll choose, chooses the right one, end of movie.
I agree with most of the comments here BORING way too slow
character driven romantic comedy, some funny moments, not a bad girly flick . the characters were quirky and fun to watch.
really slow and boring don't bother
There's two hours of my life I'll never get back. I like Reese Witherspoon and generally enjoy her movies but this was so slow. The gag reel was the funniest thing about the movie.
Not the best movie i've seen. It took way too long to go any where. I love all of the actors. Was not normal Recee movie. Am not rushing to tell anyone to watch it
Thought it was very slow and boring. Knew it would be predictable (like most romantic comedies) but was just boring....hubby almost fell asleep through it (and he will always give a new rom-com at least one watch). I'm not going to say i wouldnt recommend coz people have to make their own opinions but be prepared for a long and boring watch
From someone who loves a good romcom, don't bother! I love all three lead actors, and it is just slow, boring, and predictable...
Boring, boring, boring. Gave up watching a third of the way through. Was surprised the good cast, but no real storyline. Glad I wate my money seeing this at the movies!
Boring movie i fell asleep
Worst movie ever. So bad it wasn't even enjoyable for it's badness. You will be a better person with 2 extra hours in your life if you don't watch this one.
Enjoyable without being great. Not bad, better than what was on television that night!
I thought this was better than I expected, the good cast helps a bunch. It's light hearted and predictable, but engaging.
Ok , I watched it right through . I can't understand how these well known well respected actors agreed to this script , not a good movie .
A bit of fluff I would not recommend .
Despite you rating it only two stars, I loved this movie. Kept me entertained all the way through. It was lovely.
Definately a chick flick....Who wouldnt fall for Paul Rudd over Owen! Not much of a plot but i enjoyed it.
Wanted it to be good but it was not.
Love Reece Witherspoon & cast in this movie but it didn't get off the ground for me
Didn't like this one found it weak
Feel good movie with good acting. Bit confusing with all the physo personalities but nonetheles, some of it would be true.
Worth the watch.
Love Reese, but honestly, I never even finished it.. I think it was just too slow in developing the plot. Kind of disappointed.
This is a romantic comedy. Great acting and a different storyline than most. The question of "How do you know" gets asked a few times throughout the movie, mainly referring too love but also applies to a few other scenes in the movie.
some parts were entertaining but on the whole I was bored. Reece is gorgeous as usual but that wasn't enough to keep me interested.
Great girlie movie, funny and relevant in the way things really are these days, I loved it, Reece as always played a great role.
loved it , good girlie flick I love reece would see it again
A bit slow in places but relaxing and a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.
if you are a fan of jack or reece you will be disappointed by this predictable non event thats billed as romantic /comedy it is neither.
if you want something bland and safe for the kiddies to watch or to guzzle a litre of ice cream while you zone out perfect.
Not bad, quite funny, as always are with Reece Witherspoon in her comedy/romance movies. With Owen Wilson playing Matty I suppose just topped it off. Worth the watch for the romance/comedy people.
Light hearted comedy - perhaps more romatic rather than comedy. Not your typical story line, Paul Rudd was good. Overall harmless but better than others in this genre
Nowhere near as good as I thought it would be. Great cast but a boring let down. I kept waiting for something great to happen - no such luck. If I'm tempted to check my Facebook while watching something, it's gotta be a dud. Sigh.
Possibly the most confusing and boring film i have ever watched!
Great cast in a film that could be thirty minutes shorter and doesn't make a whole lot of sense most of the time! Not completely bad though!
i liked this movie even if it is a chick flick,i like reece witherspoon and thought she played her role fairly well,plus having jack nicholson in it you know the movie is going to be good,paul rudd funny actor and owen wilson well he is a try hard actor at the best of times but was ok in this.those who say it was boring really need to watch it without ant chit chat or disturbances then you will see it as i and others did.just saying
Worst movie I have seen, don't let the all star cast deceive you!
Quite boring & predictable
Boring, parts were funny.
Was little disappointed. This movie was quite slow to get started and very jumpy, was quite easy to get lost in what was happening early on. Did have some LOL moments occasionally though.
Very disappointing. Didnt even watch it until the end.
Usual girl likes bad guy and good guy waits on the side line.
Thought that with the cast it had this movie should have been much better than it was. Was quite disappointed really - not up to Reese's usual standard - she's usually one of my favourite actresses.
2 1/2 stars. Ok movie, funny parts but a bit disappointing as a whole. Couldn't warm to the characters
Tries too hard to be quirky, when it's not. Bit boring. Fell asleep.
Great performances! We really enjoyed this one.
Not worth the time it took to watch
A very funny movie. Reece Witherspoon was at her entertaining best and Owen Wilson was so endearing in his role. Paul Rudd could do no wrong - one of my favourite actors.
This was dreadful! One of the worst movies I have seen for a while. Shame on you Reece.
None of the characters were especially likeable, but the movie was quite laugh-out-loud funny, and a bit of an improvement on the usual sappy rom-com.
I had hoped all the negative reviews were going to be wrong, but unfortunately they were not. A very boring and common story line. Would not recommend.
Very uninteresting movie. Very disappointed.
This movie was slow and boring. towards the end of the movie it got a better but still i would not recommend it or watch it again
The worst Reese Witherspoon movie ive ever seen. Her character is annoying and it doesnt make for a good story line.
I always like Reece she is a talented and very beautiful actress but this has got to be the worst movie I have ever seen her in! The cast list was impressive but the plot dreadful and the characters simply irritating. Dont bother with this one.
I could not bare this movie. I usually sit through all of a film, even if I am not enjoying it, but I could not get into this at all. It was actually irritating me. The script was overdone and the story-line very slow. Can't comment on the end because I turned it off half way. Don't bother.
Great cast but disappointing outcome. If it was meant to be a rom-com, there was little romance and next to no comedy! Didn't see any sparks between any of the characters and the story really dragged along. Owen Wilson was the only highlight for me.
I was really hoping all the other reviews would be wrong, but this movie just lacked in so many ways. I love Owen Wilson and whilst his character was funny, the rest of the movie was just boring and nonsensical. Not the biggest waste of time, but definitely disappointing given the cast.
Couldn't get into this movie. Not the greatest.
I really enjoyed this movie. I cast a quick look at what other people thought and yes it was probably a bit slow in places but also very funny too. Good to see Jack Nicholson in another comedy. Very sweet movie.
Liked this movie. I thought it had a cute story line.
Gee I'll have to watch this again cannot remember what it was about!
Very slow and boring. Not worth seeing. Give it a miss.
Average movie, slow to get started, move along and end. Wife said it was all right, but I wouldn't recommend it. 4.5/10
A great cast bitterly disappoints... a total waste of talent! This supposed love story is slow, boring and awkward to watch - I couldn't wait for it to end!
This was absolutely painful to watch. The delivery of lines were flat, the acting was cringe-worthy and the story line was terrible.
1 hour 52 mins wasted of my life... when you see a cast with reece, owen and jack you think "entertaining movie" ... what i got... booorrrriiinnnggg...owen.. you let me down..
Easy to watch movie, basic storyline not too bad - but a bit slow.. Needed something!
average watchable but not the greatest
Not very funny, interesting or involving. Contrived plot, unconvincing characters. Don't bother.
Don't waste your time....what a waste of talent. I wanted to strangle Reese Witherspoon for her lack of interest and Owen Wilson for his winey voice. Every room in the movie is the same mustard yellow colour.....was the entire movie shot in the one room??? ABSOLUTELY DREADFUL!
With the line up of good actors in this movie it should have been much better than it was. Nothing wrong with it but nothing right about it either, just a very uninteresting, disjointed story about a love triangle with a confusing illegal/shady business practice by the Father (Jack Nicholson) of one of the young men involved thrown in for no apparent reason? ? ? ? A lot about nothing! ! !
Pretty disappointing. Even though I love these two actors, have to admit I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
The movie was ok,i thought it was going to be better then it was.
So disappointing! Scenery was boring, storyline - boring, Owen Wilson was......Owen Wilson, Paul Rudd - if he behaved like that with me I'd have called the 'Bunny in a Pot' police. Waste of time.
absolute rubbish. i had to fast forward parts, it was that boring. reese's acting was drab and jack nicholson's character was irritating! paul rudd was good as usual, and owen was fine (playing his usual character), but none of it came together well at all. don't bother
One of the slowest movies - only watched half of it with my friend - could not be bothered watching the rest the following day - slow / boring / Reecs W and Owen getting a bit long in the tooth -
Much better than i was expecting. Don't know why but i didn't think I was going to enjoy it, but I did.
