One review

  • I understand the value of a well formed romantic comedy, but I feel that this film tried to involve serious romantic moments while promoting itself more as a comedy. The action scenes were rather ridiculous, but I suppose that is to be expected with this type of movie. I have seen both actors in very funny movies, especially Steve Carell, but this isn’t one of them. The plot and premise are just so weak that the writing should have been much stronger to carry it. Most of the good scenes were wrapped together in the trailer. Unless you are desperate for popcorn, don’t waste your “date night” on this one… This just wasn’t a very funny or even interesting movie, and there’s not much I can say about. One of the movies in the previews looked better than this one.
