Although featuring a numerous star ensemble cast, it fails to be a good film. Basically it is an episodic comedy-romance in which the protagonists struggle either to find or to keep Mr./Mrs Right. Overall it lacks depth, originality & inventive dialogues. Very much predictable and at times it comes across like a teenage-girl amusement. Wasted potential.
The title says it all, so if you're tired of repeating it to your friend regarding her romantic situation, just show her this movie. It won't change much, but at least for one night you won't have to listen to irrational excuses on why he didn't call her, and at the same time maybe cheer her up.
This movie is very valuable. It is based on a very precise schema. This schema encompasses information about relationships in western culture. Clear understanding of schemas such as this can help one differentiate reality from all the strange things crawling from the screen, the street and other people. and ok, for me it was fun.
Frivolous waste of comedic and dramatic talent, it never scrapes below the surface of relationships and fails to bring anything new to the table. There's no insight here and it uses the interconnected narrative construct in such an appallingly convoluted way it's maddening to see the likes of Aniston, Connelly, Goodwin and Johansson fumbling in underwritten and ultimately borderline offensive stereotypes.
It gave me a lot of pain and I was in horrible temptation to smack my (girl)friend who was in tears most of the movie. This is so WRONG and it is dangerous because women actually see this bullshit as an emancipating moment. This is the best way how to plant ideology into masses. *puke*
