If you mixed Ferris Bueller in a blender with Alvy Singer (Woody Allen in "Annie Hall") and Larry David, the result would be SAM BAUM (Josh Gad). He's a lovable, quirky, neurotic NY native, living in LA with his beautiful girlfriend, Sammy (Kristen Ruhlin). A girl he knows how lucky he is to have in his life, since she was previously married to John: a, tall, fit, gorgeous, extremely successful Harvard med school graduate, who she's remained cordial with. Before Sammy, Sam hasn't had much success, romantically. He's an emerging filmmaker with one feature film under his belt that nobody's heard of. And she's an aspiring actress, aching for her big break, which may never come, unless Sam offers her the female lead in his next project, which he does... the night before one of the hottest, most in demand actresses working today, Kim Powers (Hilary Duff), expresses interest in playing the role. Sam wears his heart on his sleeve and has always been honest with Sammy, but now he's caught in ... Written by Some Dude

Entertaining and funny movie!
7 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is just my opinion but after watching a screener of this movie, I found myself thoroughly enjoying it and I even laughed out loud a handful of times. I was skeptical at first about whether I wanted to give this type of movie 85 minutes of my life, now I'm glad I did.

I can see why Charlie Sheen, Hilary Duff, and the other famous actors would do this movie. It's different and more sentimental than most of the movies they are frequently doing.

I'd recommend this movie to most movie goers out there, but mainly for a high school or more youthful audience. They will get a kick out of the witty writing and comedy that Josh Gad provides.
