Did You Know?
Jennifer Aniston has 20 minutes screen time in this film, Jennifer Connelly has 25 minutes.
Alex is meeting Gigi for drinks, when he is supposed to be introducing her to Bill. When the waitress brings his drink the glass is nearly full, but when he picks it up to take a first drink, the glass is only half full.
I think I've figured it out. Remember when I went out with that notary public and he cheated on me and then Anastasia from upstairs told me about how her boyfriend cheated on her in the beginning then he totally changed and now they're married and crazy in love?
I thought that guy was a process server.
No notary. Anyway my point is, Anastasia is the exception, not the rule. We have to stop listening to these stories because they rule is most guys who cheat on you up front don't really care about you very much.
Are we really that bad?
My girlfriend and I, both at or approaching our 50's, saw this in a
theater that was absolutely filled with high school girls. That
surprised me actually, given that most of the stars in this film are
well-beyond high-school age. But they, like the rest of the audience,
seemed to really enjoy this film, as did we. The relationships were
nicely intertwined without being contrived ("Crash" anyone?), and
unlike the similar movie "Love Actually," nothing portrayed was too
outlandish. The convention of adding comments by "real" people to
introduce story lines was well done and amusing. If I find any fault
with the film, it's that all of the guys are presented as having
relationship "issues" or as being total bone-heads. Hopefully there are
more "nice guys" interspersed in society than what this film might lead
you to believe (though I must say that the attitudes presented are
definitely not inaccurate).
Overall, a very nice film whose 2 hour plus running time goes by rather
quickly. If you've ever been in or tried to be in a relationship,
you'll probably enjoy this movie.
