Some reviews on here criticise that the male protagonist learns that you can just continue behaving badly until it pays off. I think those reviewers miss the point rather spectacularly. They're demanding the formula they've come to expect - no doubt if the movie WAS as perfectly formulaic as they expect they'd almost certainly criticise this too.
Personally, I felt that the male character DOES progress so the criticism is unwarranted on both levels.
Personally, I loved this movie. Woods acting is wonderful and she portrays the naive female lead expertly. All the characters were believable.
It's a lovely rom-com with less than perfect characters and which doesn't force morality down your throat... for this reason alone I consider barefoot refreshing.
