This was a terrible movie. I was very disappointed with this film and my wife and I walked out due to the crude material. It has multiple sexual references / situations / scenes. None of this was portrayed in the trailers, so it came as a shock to us. I would not recommend wasting your time and money on this film. Big disappointment.

THIS IS A GREAT, HEARTWARMING FILM LOADED WITH A WONDERFUL CAST. IT IS FUNNY, ROMANTIC, SWEET AND GREAT FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY. FANTASTIC PERFORMANCES BY BOTH GERARD BUTLER AND JESSICA BIEL. GO SEE IT!

Typical story line. Won't be any awards for this movie or actors here. Better to wait for dvd on this one. These actors should be able to find better work than this.

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.

This movie was even better than I had hoped for. The main focus was his relationship with his son and Gerard Butler acted his part so well I could feel his pain and his joy. I wasn't the only one because there was alot of laughter, a few tears and even clapping during this movie. It was a very heartwarming movie with some characters and relationships that people can relate to. So go go go and enjoy!
