How do you know? You don't!By CathPD (22 reviews) from Carlisle , 06 Mar 2011
[Highly rated reviewer]This film is rather appropriately titled. You don't really understand the story because it makes little sense. You don't really know why the acting is so bad. You don't really know why such an 'A' list cast could have agreed to make such a terrible film. I'd have expected so much more from the likes of Witherspoon and Nicholson. They serve a purpose, but there is very little depth in their characters. I don't want to include a spoiler, but let's just say that one of the main episodes in the film bares very little relevance to the rest of the film, although I think it's suppost to be important! It's not that the cast/crew/writers/director etc haven't tried to acheive a well connected storyline, it's just that they never quite succeeded. Now, as for the ending... Some films are clever enough to be able to pull off the 'It-doesn't-quite-finish-but-you-know-what-happens ', but there really should have been a proper conclusion written in for this one. It ends. You can imagine what happens, but the dialogue and the action in the last couple of scenes is so weak that you really feel you are left empty and craving something more. Sorry, I really wasn't impressed. It's not terrible, but I won't be rushing to watch it again anytime soon.

Poor StoryBy a customer , 13 May 2013The cast list looks impressive the problem is that the script is awful. There is no story line or if there is its just so complex that you cannot follow the threads. This is no Romcom there are much better films out there don't waste your time with this one.
Light hearted :)By a customer , 10 May 2013Stick with it, not the greatest film ever, but it's a sweet film. Not much of a story line though :)
Okay filmBy a customer , 09 May 2013Ok film, not very satisfying ending in my opinion but good if nothing else to do and a fan of reese Witherspoon!
I don't know how to feel about this film.By lamusic24 (3 reviews) , 06 May 2013It was cute, heart-warming and sweet, yet the ending made me feel like the story wasn't fully over. I would recommend watching it, but don't expect an ending that pulls at your heartstrings.
