Marilyn Cooper: Can you pass the ketchup, Myrelle?
Myron Stubbs: It's Myron.
Marilyn Cooper: Oh. I kind of like Myrelle better. It reminds me of Gone With the Wind. Normally black movies don't hold my attention, but I liked that one. And I like The Jeffersons.

Forgettable.
24 June 2008 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

Totally forgettable. Specially because of the weak acting. This is the first movie I've seen with Dax Shepard. To my surprise, he's been around since the late 90's. I thought he was a newcomer, since his acting was so bland. I could say the same about Liv Tyler. Although I've seen her do well in other movies, she gave Clare Cooper a strange personality. Liv is not the kind of actress that will give the character a fiery, emotional personality like Diane Keaton would be able to, but it was pretty strange to see her say her lines in whisper mode. It seemed that altogether there simply wasn't a very good chemistry going on between the actors, and I think Diane Keaton sensed that as well. She's a fantastic actress, but seemed just a bit over the top in this movie. It felt like she just wanted to get this movie over as soon as possible. I wouldn't blame her.
