User Review

Very Real for a romantic-comedy

Rating: 8/10

I am not a great fan of romantic comedies because, honestly, they all
seem the same. This one proved me wrong! I actually laughed
(unexpected) and even cried (really unexpected) during this movie.
There is great chemistry between all the cast members . The premise
that the story is based on is presented as very believable. I found
myself immersed in the possibility of this happening in real life, not
just reel life! I think the director brought out the best in the
actors. Katie Heigl has more depth as an actor than I gave her credit
for. Josh Duhmel proves to be more than just a pretty face. I really
loved this movie and was so glad I went to see it!
