Erin has just six more weeks as an intern at the New York Sentinel before she returns to San Francisco. That's fine with Garrett since he just got out of a relationship. But their relationship blossoms and it quickly becomes something that they can't just drop in six weeks. They admit to wanting to be boyfriend/girlfriend just on opposite coasts. The distance wears on them, as with their nay-saying friends and sister, and soon they are forced to either break up or come up with a solution that has them living in the same city.

Sure. It's the least I could do. It is your birthday after all.
Men – don't be put off just because it looks like a chick flick!

type of film that will have lots of complicated twists and turns, so in
that context it's fairly predictable, but it's really well acted by the
main characters, particularly Justin Long, Drew Barrymore and Christin
Applegate. There are lots of laughs, and I mean laughing out loud, from
both the men and the women in the audience. For me it's one of the
funniest films I've seen that wasn't an out and out comedy. As the
title of this review suggests, there's something for both men and women
