Richard's first beer is draft perfect, then the bartender holds a bad beer in his hands. In the next shot, it is perfect again. The next shot shows the bad beer again, and then it even dies completely (and there's less beer) in Richard hands, only to be perfect again when he takes his first sip. See more »
It's not surprising that the critics didn't like this film. They always seem to miss the good ones.
I watched this film because Jeff Daniels was in it and I always enjoy his work. He was terrific as the neurotic writer, but Emma Stone owned this film. What an outstanding actor she is. I don't know what sort of training she had, but she's a natural. She becomes the character she plays. She is absolutely believable. This is the best work I've seen her do.
Ryan Reynolds was Excellent (as in Captain). His comic timing and demeanor was spot on.
Lisa Kudrow had a smaller part but was still terrific as the frustrated wife.
Thanks to Michele and Kieran Mulroney for the outstanding script and direction. Please do it again.
