This is a solid movie
19 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I almost didn't go see this movie because of the low review rating it has been receiving from the movie-goers. But my wife wanted to go see it, so I went begrudgingly. I was pleasantly surprised. There were only a couple of minor plot points that didn't add up, but if you let those slide, it's a solid, believable story. The actors were beautiful, sexy, professional and funny. I really like the way one marriage heals several relationships on both sides of the aisle. I can tell you this movie is just as good some others I have seen that had higher ratings: I am number four; Battle LA; and the Liam Neison move, Forgotten or something where he has amnesia.
