Quotes

Kate: I think that liking them is much more important than loving them, actually. Love is easy to fall into. Liking is much harder. Think of your wedding as a driving test. You take it, you pass, and then you really start to learn how to drive. Or you crash.

Comedy by numbers
6 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Simple and predictable. One could, with no effort, finish each line of the dialog. Originality was certainly not the point.

Actors are charming and do their best with the material at hand.

It would be unfair to say that it was unfunny. I watched it in a packed theater in Paris on a Sunday afternoon (which in itself would be very strange were it not for the fact that the French are known to stubbornly queue for any film that features their actors and/or Paris) and everyone around me was laughing their heads off. I couldn't help but giggle a few times myself.

I would recommend it for a rainy afternoon, on TV.
