awful
6 December 2011 | by (denver, Co) – See all my reviews

I wish Kate Hudson took the lead on this. Jennifer lopez did okay but throughout the whole film I kept waiting for kate to be there....anyway the chemistry between these two leads was way off. The story was kind of awful. Oloughlins character was such a jerk through out the film. In reality no one would've put up with that esp not an independent pregnant girl. I wanted to slap him. The time frame for which there relationship progressed was unrealistic. I hated that he complained and panicked through the whole thing, yet she never made him stay. He acted like he didn't have a choice. And what was with the dog who couldn't walk but was very expressionative? Seen it before. Didn't really phase me in this one. Save your time.
