Ok, let's maybe lose the gun thing.
What? The gun is my signature move.
Unless the NRA is paying your mortgage this month, I say lose the effing gun!

the 6.4 rating is beyond me. I hated this movie. Hated it. hated it. hated it.
First off, Gerard Butler's American accent is pretty horrible. Katherine Heigl's character is a walking cliché. (A workaholic woman who's unlucky in love, even though she looks like Kathryn Heigl)
The movie ends with one of the most stupid endings that I've ever seen. WARNING SPOILERS
Why would she fall in love with Mike? I still don't get it. They had some decent chemistry as friends, but were not believable as a couple.
Even worse is the fact that the movie is a big sexist lie. It's offensive to both women and men. In interviews, the cast and director defend it saying that "it's the truth." Bull****. It's not the truth. Women don't need to degrade themselves to land a man. Not all men want their women as sex objects.
The film is mean spirited, not funny, not charming, boring, dull, and clichéd.
And the film really failed to take advantage of it's R rating. There are much better romantic comedies. Don't waste your time.
