Consensus: A light and predictable, if somewhat shallow, romantic comedy that's easy to sit through because of the charming leads.

A romantic comedy with insights into sex and relationships that are old and obvious.

The soft science about men's natural proclivity to hit-it-then-quit-it isn't terribly scintillating nor monumental. There's not much to this… More

I think it's a fun movie. Sure, it's a throwaway romantic comedy aside from the megaton star Hugh Jackman. He is showcased in this movie as a complete… More

The story about the one that got away and the one she never saw coming. Fun good movie about adult relationships that easy come by and easy go. You could learn… More

This movie strikes a chord in the heart of every woman, but not romantically. I remember my first annoying playboy co-worker and he was a great deal like Eddie.… More
