One review

  • While this is a pleasant albeit convoluted romantic comedy, it could have been much better. Julia Roberts has great charisma but can’t pull off a role that requires her to play a negative character. The script feels toothless and the dark elements are toned down. Dermot Mulroney is a bit too quiet though his acting improves towards the end. Cameron Diaz has loads of charisma and manages to hold her own in what is essentially a second lead. The film’s best performance is given by Rupert Everett. The screen sizzles whenever he’s present. Although perfectly watchable, the film is flawed and a little disappointing.
