Ryan Gosling could become a big screen star, so I follow all his films.This one does not disappoint.By roncoach (365 reviews) from suffolk , 10 Jul 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I didn't have much hopes really for this storyline as outlined in reviews.
But I watched it just to keep up-to-date with the burgeoning career of Ryan Gosling who I think could become a wonderful screen star-----and I have been watching movie stars come and go for over 50 years.
And, actually the film was good, and not just because of the talented Mr Gosling, but also because of its above-average presentation of all the cinematic departments.
Yes, I rate this film as 'Good' and that places it firmly as a 3. 5 star movie. Easy :))))))

Gosling in a film about an ugly ducklingBy a customer , 12 Dec 2012I loved it in a sort of mid-life crisis guide type of way. My wife loved it because she could call me childish for laughing in the inappropriate places. We've both promised not to drink alone in bars.
Feelgood funBy LegendaryJess (32 reviews) , 03 Dec 2012Very good, entertaining, feel good film. Some strange bits in it.... But some highly amusing moments too. Defo worth a rent
Good take on life in the real worldBy a customer , 01 Dec 2012Wry take on life in a household going through a breakup. Not a comedy, despite its listing as such, except for the chaotic scenes towards the end, and a bit like an old-fashioned Brian Rix farce but well acted and the viewpoints are true to life ( I think - not having gone through a divorce or having children!) Whiles away a good chunk of time without being boring
Trade descriptions act need to investigate the claim to be a "comedy"...By Mrs_T (7 reviews) , 26 Nov 2012I struggle to accept the term 'comedy' in relation to this film. I know comedy. I live and love comedy. A comedy, to me, is something that makes you laugh again and again. Sometimes hysterically, though that is admittedly rare. This film is not a comedy. I laughed once in the film. Admittedly out loud, but once. Almost two whole hours of movie made me laugh for about three minutes.
The film starts by introducing the audience to a number of characters, and showing links between very few of them. I thought this was pretty unusual. It's good because you want to know how they link. It's bad because you spend most of the film second-guessing everything, which is probably what makes it drag on so long.
After introductions there is a lot of cringeing, almost always on behalf of 'Cal' (Steve Carrell), both due to what others do to him, and what he does. Sometimes 'David' (Kevin Bacon) induces cringeworthy moments, but it's infrequent. I'd say around a third of the film is spent in an almost constant state of cringe. The remainder (other than the three minutes of laughing) is spent just feeling sorry for everyone for various reasons.
Despite all of this it does have a decent storyline. It tries something new, which I am always quite pleased to see. It doesn't work brilliantly, but it doesn't sink like the Titanic either. Worth a watch if you like vaguely-rom-com films or just have time to waste and nothing else to do!!
