Great of Gerard Butler and boy, everyone else seemed miscast

Great acting by Gerard Butler and boy. Jessica Beil was believable but completely boring. Dennis Quaid and Uma Thurman seemed completely miscast, and their characters were stupid - they seemed very out of place in these roles. I am a big romantic comedy fan, but this left me very disappointed. I'm afraid I cannot recommend to others. :(

I was totally entertained by this film. The casting was excellent. Butler and Biel have a wonderful on screen presence. You could see the love and caring in their eyes. You could easily think that they were a real couple in real life, they were amazing throughout the entire film. The story was one that's predictable; but it's done so well you don't mind. I thought it dealt with divorce and the effects it has on children very realistic to all that have gone through that situation. This is an enjoyable film for sure and well worth your time and money. I wouldn't call it a bona fide chick flick; but I would go so far as to say a wonderful date movie. Catherine Zeta Jones also does a fine job in this film with a strong supporting role performance. So get your popcorn and drink and have a nice hour and a half at the theater.

younger adults may like it, but as an older adult i thought it was not funny or entertaining and i usually like these fluffy, romantic comedies.. felt no sympathy for gerald butler's character economic situation or his relationship with his son. the three women were not believable especially the scenes when they interact with him. save your money.

Loved this movie from start to finish. Gerard Butler is perfect in this role, and the rest of the cast was great too, and equally funny. This movie had the right amount of drama and comedy and romance. Great date movie for any couple, but don't take my word for it, see it for yourselves.

A fun film that leaves you with a good feeling. Great script by Robbie Fox who deserves a lot of credit for dealing wiith a difficult situation presented by today's economics and lifestyles.
