The previews looked pretty straightforward, and I wasn't expecting too much, but the wife wanted to go, so...well, you know how that goes. Anyway, great movie! Best Gerard Butler performance since 300. Chemistry with Beal was great, and for once they got the kid (Noah) right! The bond between the kid and Butler grew ever more salient as the movie progressed, and the kid was just fantastic--and he was a cute kid. So many times Hollywood gets these lame-looking doofuses to be the kids of two, good-looking parents, and we're always like--how could that dumbass-looking piece of crap come from those two nice-looking parents?
This is Jessica Biel's finest work as well. More often than not she communicated much of what she felt through her face, and especially her eyes...without overacting. She owned that role, and you could just feel how torn she was between choosing true love or choosing what was safe.
Great entertainment! Good values promoted. Guys, take your wives.

With a cast like this I expected way more from this movie and I was wholly underwhelmed. Gerard jumps from bed to bed with all the crazy suburban wives yet we're still supposed to root for him to get back together with his ex-wife? No thank you! I would definitely pass on this movie disguised as a romance.

I love all the actors in this but the story line just couldn't make this movie entertaining. It was drawn out for too long and the chemistry was better with George and his flings than who was supposed to be the love of his life. Wait for it to come on tv in a few years so they can cut out the really boring parts.

I'd wait until it comes out on video or at a less expensive theatre. You knew where the story line went, Catherine Zeta-Jones delivered a "forgettable" performance! Dennis Quaid was annoying.

Unfortunately the theater it was playing in was shut down for repairs and wasn't aware of this until I got there, so I didn't get to see the movie. Requested a refund but they told me I had to go through Fandango and it appears you don't refund tickets, so my experience was not a positive one.
