Trivia

The name plate on Emily Weaver (Julianne Moore)'s desk had a second line "Associate to the Vice President," not "Associate Vice President." This is undoubtedly a reference to Steve Carell's TV series "The Office," in which there was a running gag about Dwight Shrute having the title "Assistant to the Regional Manager," not "Assistant Regional Manager."

Pleasantly surprised, a great movie overall!
26 July 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this expecting an amusing, albeit predictable, movie. Boy was I pleasantly surprised!

Steve Carell plays a man, Cal, blindsided by his wife's sudden request for a divorce. While wallowing in self pity at the local bar, Jacob (Ryan Gossling) decides to turn him into a project, and introduce him to the wonderful world of womanizing.....But you've seen that from the previews right? What comes next is a great look at love, from first crushes to long term marriage.

This movie is the perfect blend of funny and sweet (the entire theatre was laughing throughout). Great performances from the whole cast, including a surprisingly refreshing change for Steve Carell. The writing was perfect, the pacing was great.... A perfect date movie! Not overly sappy and not typical "chick flick" drivel.
