I really liked the movie "Dan In Real Life" as it's sort of a quirky funny love story. This movie was somewhat similar, and we thoroughly enjoyed it. Acting was great...story line was unique and well done. Enjoyable twist that came out of no where. And, it had a sweet soundtrack as well. For me it was a must go Date Movie.

Fabulous acting, great storyline. Twist I didnt see coming. Steve Carell is fabulous, even has some serious scenes that were very well done. Emma Stone is awesome, she is such a great actress, that girl will be around for years to come!

One of the funniest scenes in any movie (that I can remember) occurs here--when all the family and friends collide in the backyard! Not to be a spoiler, but I missed the degrees of relationship in their development. What a commentary on our day's complex relationships--cray, stupid or bizarre--when fornication, hook-ups, separation/divorce are the norm.

If you're looking for the romantic comedy where Katherine Heigl meets a guy, hates him, and blah blah blah they live happily ever after then this is not the movie for you. The movie starts with "I want a divorce" and goes from there. I would call it more of a dramedy than a romantic comedy. And I think since the focus is on a 40-something couple that has been married for quite a while, that's probably the audience that will enjoy it the most. There are some young hotties in it for the 20's crowd, but most of the jokes seem to focus around divorce and getting back into the game.
Also I'm pretty sure that Ryan Gosling's house in the movie was the Stahl house, which I always enjoy seeing.
I loved this movie.
