Did You Know?
Director Will Gluck's previous film was
Easy A, which features Emma Stone and Patricia Clarkson as mother and daughter.
When Jamie & Dylan are sat on the Hollywood sign, behind Jamie, there is a sports bottle. This then disappears during the scene.
What do you know about women anyway?
I've turn down more tales than you would never have.
Yeah bro: you're gay!
But the offers keep rolling in, naturally. Look at me! And hey, I love women: they are beautiful, majestic, mysterious, mesmerizing creatures. Smart, empathetic, far superior to man in every way. If I had a choice, I would be with a woman to my dying day. But me likes cock, so… I'm strickily-dickily.
A Cliché Romantic Comedy that Pokes Fun at Other Romantic Comedies
I was able to see a sneak screening of this movie almost 1 month prior
to it's official release. I honestly walked in simply thinking I was
seeing another typical romantic comedy with my girlfriend. To my
surprise it was much more.
Timberlake plays an LA Blog Art Director who has just been recruited to
work for GQ in New York by Kunis who is a headhunter. The two had great
chemistry through out the movie.
What's funny is that even though it does contain the usual Cliché
scenes that most romantic adult comedies contain, it does tend to poke
fun at them and have some sort of realism to the plot.
Both Timberlake and Kunis are likable and really funny. Woody Harrelson
was the best addition to support this younger cast. Harrelson plays a
flamboyantly gay sports editor who goes from making sexual advances to
JT, to offering him some pearls of wisdom with his love life.
I would have to say this movie was very enjoyable and if your skeptical
about seeing it in the theaters, definitely put it on your "must rent"
