This really is the rom-com version of painting by numbers...made by people who clearly can't count. Terrible script, bad acting (Uma is the main culprit and Colin Firth sleepwalks his way through it)...completely unrealistic characters.I found myself wondering how on earth this movie got the green light.It's got straight to DVD written all over it.
I couldn't believe the amount of quality actors who were in this. WHY - they must have known it was going to be a dog?

Not funny and not romantic. My cat could have penned a better script.
