USA Today

By Claudia Puig
It's a sweetly strange yet uneven comedy, with a charming lead performance by Steve Zahn offset by a lackluster one from Jennifer Aniston.

Ultimately delivers the goods, even if the goods aren't very fresh.

Playwright Stephen Belber (Match), in his directing debut, comes close to the sweet spot. He's not there yet. But he'll be worth watching...

A movie about a loser stalking a girl because she didn't have the heart to turn him away. What a total waste of time. Woody did well with his part what there was of it. Jennifer did well with a loser...

By sunbro
I took my girlfriend to this film and we found it surprising as love in real life is. Just when you think that Jennifer Aniston's sales character will "put her foot down" as far as Steve Zahn's...


Both my wife and I liked this a lot.Not an action film or a knee-slapping comedy, this film is about how people get stuck in a rut and how they get "unstuck". I have never been a fan of Jennifer...

Aniston and Zahn have a great chemistry. The film is savory, unexpected and pleasant. Much more depth than a typical "romantic comedy" - in fact, I wouldn't call it a romantic comedy, but fun and...
