A Charming Film And Solid Effort from Start To Finish,By crockery (137 reviews) from Belfast , 17 Sep 2008
[Highly rated reviewer]Although this film had all the earmarks of the dreaded stereotypical 'chick flick' and/or 'yenta-fest', I enjoyed it thoroughly, because in the end it was a charming, mature film about real life and real people, one which can be enjoyed on many levels by anyone who has a heart.
The script was solid, the editing spot on, the cinematography taut (especially the close-ups), the actors all on top of their games, and the fact that all these well-known stars are showing their age (and character!) in their faces just added to the feeling of genuine emotion and augmented the audience ability to empathize with the characters.
I went in not expecting much and came out EXTREMELY satisfied... all the more impressed because it was Ms. Hunt's big screen directorial and writing debut.

Good filmBy a customer , 12 Jun 2012Really enjoyed watching this film. Great to have a good story exploring more mature relationships with all its baggage and complications. The story itself is quite heart warming. The acting is good. Was pleasantly surprised Helen Hunt directed such a meaty film.
I wish I had never found this!By a customer , 01 Jan 2012
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideFor me, this film was a waste of a rental. Helen Hunt looks tired and worn, and far older than her rather irrational character - completely unconvincing that Colin Firth fancied her at all, although that's not the main problem. Completely unconvincing that she almost made out with the husband who abandoned her in a parked car in broad daylight mere minutes after seeing her gorgeous new boyfriend - especially as we've been shown earlier that she sees right through the husband. In the end, completely uninteresting what happens in the film and totally un-enriching. If you are a Colin Firth completist, grit your teeth and go ahead, but otherwise, especially if you are a Helen Hunt fan,best to avoid.
It just felt wrongBy a customer , 19 Nov 2011Watched this film on a bus journey & was very glad I hadn't rented it. Helen Hunt always makes my heart sink for some reason. She felt miscast as this character. The appearence of Colin Firth was a pleasant surprise, but again felt wrong & implausable.
Just plain meh!By DieselDiva (4 reviews) , 17 Oct 2011Sorry didnt like this one! A very dull film with a dissapointing ending and the relationship between Mattew Broderick's Character & his ex wife is cringeworthy to say the least. Don't think i will be watching this one again any time soon!
enjoyable and worthy of a viewing!By a customer , 06 Oct 2011I quite enjoyed this film although i wouldnt have said it was a comedy. it wasnt funny more of a drama i think.
