This is not a dreadfully original story, it is not worthy of an Oscar, it is rather stereotypical, and yet leaves you with a smile on your face wondering why they couldn't have made it half an hour longer.
I wish I could tell you why, but I can't. I loved all the performances, and the script was funny, but kept itself on the believable side of silly.
I doubt many critics are going to rave about it, and the movie snobs will hate it. It will not make many top lists and very few people will buy the DVD, so that they can watch it 15 times, but if you are looking to finish off an evening with a movie that sends you to bed smiling, this is an excellent pick.
