I am actually in physical pain
5 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had to visit the bathroom on 3 separate occasions within 1 hour after seeing this movie. My guts were in turmoil after watching such an idiotic and insulting travesty of a romantic comedy. The movie was so dead and moribund in atmosphere that my girlfriend fell off the couch while watching it and slept there on the floor until morning. I did not laugh once during the whole movie and I had to drive 5 miles across town to go to the video store to complain and to get some decent comedy urgently. Dermot Mulroney was so bad in this movie that I truly believe he was trying to sabotage the whole sordid affair. The movie has turned me off love and sex and the British for life. I feel like moving to a monastery and maiming myself. Please pray for me and for any poor souls who see this monstrosity.
