My husband and I went to see this film on its opening night and weren't surprised to see a full theatre.
The movie has its hilarious moments which are interspersed with plenty of uncomfortable, tense arguments as these 2 people who love one another try to one-up each other in the payback mode for the pain in their relationship.
My husband thought it dragged from the middle on a little, although I didn't.
We both left thinking the movie was really funny in some parts, pretty sad and even tragic in others. Overall, we thought the acting was solid & believable and though the ending wasn't expected, it was real and even hopeful.
We both said it was worth seeing, and if you're looking for a fairly real-life view of the life of a struggling relationship, you'll be glad you saw this film.
I left the theatre feeling a little empty, but glad that in real life, these two are together!! Enjoy!
