Despite what critics had to say, I loved this movie. It was one of the few romantic comedies that I actually like. It isn't the best movie in the world, but it certainly isn't the worst movie in the world. To be honest, I only saw it because I love Ashley Judd. She does not give the best performance in the movie though. Hugh Jackman does. He's a fantastic actor. He was great in X-MEN, SWORDFISH, and he's great in this. I like him as one of the romantic leads and I hope to see him in more romantic comedies and I hope to see more romantic comedies like this.
