Terrible.
4 October 2004 | by turbonutter-1See all my reviews

I hired this film as it looked like a good light hearted funny romantic comedy, with a couple of big name stars. But, it was very disappointing. Barely half way into the film the girlfriend fell asleep and i turned off and was left feeling frustrated and angry at wasting the £2 on hiring it.

Firstly i just wanted to slap Luke Wilson and tell him to pull himself together. The character he played was such a wet lettuce it was unbelievable, and Phil was sooooooo annoying you were left wishing that he would sustain a more serious injury throughout the film...

Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Not recommended!
