This was just an all around fun movie. I went to a screening in Chicago with a friend and we both left the theater smiling from ear to ear. It was an all around delightful Rom-com. Yes, it was a bit zany and over the top, but in the best possible way.
Jennifer Coolidge made me bust out laughing throughout the movie. Keri Russell, really brought a lot of heart to the character. And I hope to see JJ Feild in more movies. He had a lot of chemistry with Russell.
I read the book several years ago and was excited to hear that it was being adapted into a movie, I am not sure how loyal it was to the book, but who cares? It was a fun summer movie.
