If He's Just Not That Into You is a film for women who want to be lied to, then The Trouble with Romance offers a conniving counterpoint for men.

NYC Movie Guru

Often drags with poorly developed characters, awkward pacing and stilted dialogue that has no new or refreshing insights about love, romance or modern relationships.
