After paying to watch it I at first regretted not watching the preview as the beginning suggested it just might be too sophomoric and unfunny. But the film actually turned out to be fairly witty and definitely engaging. Yes, it was predictable but the dialogue and scenes were lively enough to make it not matter. To me there was only one major flaw in the movie and that centered on Adam Scott's character of Matthew. First off, he was so unappealing and unattractive, at least to me, that I couldn't understand the attachment of Lainie to him. Why him, and why for so long? Also, to somehow equate Lainie's attachment to Matthew with Jake's philandering really didn't make much sense. But overlooking these discrepancies I was still able to enjoy watching this romantic comedy, just as being able to predict the ending didn't stop me from smiling at it.
