Despite valiant efforts by a game Kevin Pollak to liven up this tired romantic comedy, only the patient should appreciate the gross humor and sophomoric plot.

Everything in this feebly written (by screenwriter Noah Stern), blandly staged (by director Matthew Meshekoff) film seems to have been recycled from some earlier movie or television show.

This mess of a film isn't remotely entertaining. It only perpetuates generic social myths in the place of presenting fresh, insightful social satire. In short, it's more hellish than a blind date.

When a battle-of-the-sexes comedy has one combatant complaining that the other never caps the toothpaste tube, there's bound to be a shortage of new thinking.

This is the kind of movie where nothing that is done, said, thought or performed bears any relationship to anyone you have ever met.

Hardly a classic, but Brown and Pollak provide decent comic relief.

This may not be the most slickly-produced or original motion picture of the year, but it has a great deal more bite than most films that place themselves in the same genre.

This romantic comedy covers familiar ground in an entertaining fashion, helped by an enjoyable cast.

A dreadful semi-off-the-wall romantic comedy, which is a rehash of many other bad romantic comedies.
