This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. I was literally laughing so loud when I saw this movie in the theatre that people were getting mad at me. The movie is also unbelievably sad, and if you dont like comedies with sad overtones, this is not the movie for you. This movie is so perfectly written. You care about Justine (Jennifer Aniston), and you can feel her deep rooted sadness for everyday life, and you can just hope that you don't get stuck in a situation like that when you go out on your own. watch this movie more than once, Oscar nods should be given to Jennifer Aniston and Jake Gellynhall, both of their performances are amazing.
