Goofs

When Lee grabs the fire hose to throw it to Eddie, who is sliding off the roof, the nozzle comes off. When Lee throws the hose seconds later, the nozzle is back on, but Lee did grab the nozzle as though he was planning to reattach it, and would have quite possibly had a moment to do so before throwing it to Eddie.

Good Romantic Comedy Movie with a great cast
27 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

SO I just finished watching this movie a couple of days ago. The reason I watched it because Julia Roberts was in it and shes one of my favorite actresses. Here is a short summary of whats it about, Well it starts with a famous Hollywood couple that is going through a divorce, and a movie director who lost his job and has the chance to get it back if he can bring John Cusack's character and Zeta Jones character back to together. Julia Roberts' character is Zeta Jones sister in the movie and happens to to get with John Cusack's character because she always had a crush on him and John Cusack has always liked her.

Well the movie was good, it wasn't great. Yes most people will watch it because of the cast and not like it. Christopher Walken steals the show as always in the beginning and end, with short scenes. There are some really funny scenes, but thats about it. The plot of the movie is okay nothing excitint.

I give it 6 out of 10 stars. I would at least give it a chance if your fan of any of the actors in this film, or if you like that type of genre.
