Hey why do you guys really, really come here? Is it just to ruin my weekends and embarrass me in front of my friends at my home?
Your home? This isn't your home. It was our parents home! But I don't see you making any contributions. You've got no wife, no kids. You insult the only family you have. You keep this up and you'll die alone, like a dog, like a bum, like Van Gogh.

The closing credits thank the "city and citizens of Pittsburgh, California," where the hospital scenes were shot. However, the correct spelling of the city name is actually "Pittsburg." Unlike the city in Pennsylvania, the California city's name does not end with the letter "h." See more »
This film is as subtle a kicking a house brick with your toe, and deeply dishonest.
The comedic characters and events are from the era of the Keystone Cops; completely over the top. This film is from the genre of farce verging on melodrama, complete with music to make sure we know what we are supposed to think. It should have been honest enough not to pretend to anything more complex.
The life challenges faced by the characters are real enough but the plot is completely cliché and obvious.
The central characters are simplistic and are black & white (she all good, he all bad). The dialog is from the day dreams of a fourteen year old.
The fact that a film uses actor Hugh Grant does not make it sensitive, uplifting or funny. The fact that a film contains sex and slapstick does not make it a romantic comedy.
