Only reason to watch is John Krasinski!
27 April 2009 | by See all my reviews

I wish I could have given this a higher vote, because John Krasinski is fantastic in this movie, but unfortunately the uninteresting main character and the trite love story with his clichéd girlfriend, not to mention the out-of-nowhere dramatic ending - which completely disturbed any flow this movie had built up over the last 90 minutes and didn't go with the amusing premise at all - and the horrible attempt at a British accent, completely killed any enjoyment I might have felt in watching parts that did not involve John's character, Gideon.

Still, John is hilarious and if you're a fan, having the chance to enjoy seeing him dance seductively with a plant, run around in a nice suit and hang out on a couch in boxer shorts, a wife beater and an open button down shirt will make the rental more than worth your while.

I also agree with the commenter who recommended watching the deleted scenes, more JKras goodness!
