I think Tina Fey is a great actress, and that made me like the movie, she didn't let me down. I also thought that Paul Rudd did a great job with the part. The story line moved a litle slow and I felt that the end was not what I like for an ending. It didn't give me enough of a closing, and I felt it left too much incompleted.

This is a modestly entertaining film with a basic formulaic screenplay. It's well executed and includes a surprisingly long over-due screen reappearance of Lily Tomlin. Sadly, Lily's character is unsubstantial and as a consequence, her performance here is little more than a cameo. While there's nothing much new here, the onscreen chemistry between Fey and Rudd is warm and believable. The story's a little weak but the total package is enjoyable enough to warrant a matinee ticket, even a DVD or steam rental. See it. You won't be disappointed.

Very clever movie that gets a little sappy towards the end. Lily Tomlin steals the show and Tina Fey continues to show how much talent she has. Very clever storyline. Anyone who graduated from Princeton should probably avoid this movie. Princeton comes across pretty badly in this film.

Tina Fey turns out to be a competent serious actress in addition to being able to do slapstick comedy. Perhaps I was in a bad mood when I walked in but I was expecting a lighter story with more laughs. At least that's what the trailers had led me to expect. Overall, not a bad way to spend 2 hours but I didn't walk away feeling better than I walked in.
