Entertaining, But Miscast
21 April 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

When the writer Owen (David Krumholtz) unexpectedly travels to Los Angeles to meet his beloved girlfriend and actress Chloe (Denise Richards) in the set, he discovers that she is cheating him. With a broken heart, he returns to New York and his friends Diane (Jessica Cauffiel) and Jack (Dan Montgomery Jr.) arrange a blind date with their maid of honor Nadine (Milla Jovovich) that has just broken her engagement. Owen and Nadine do not like each other first, but later they become best friends and Nadine secretly falls in love for him. On the day of Owen's birthday, they have one night stand, but on the next morning Chloe returns to New York and calls Owen that has to come up to a decision.

The "You Stupid Man" is an entertaining romantic comedy where the situation of the lead couple slightly recalls "When Harry Meets Sally". The gorgeous and sexy Milla Jovovich performs a sweet character; Denise Richards is great in the role of a woman that uses her body to escalate on television, but David Krumholtz is absolutely miscast, since it is impossible to believe that nether Milla Jovovich nor Denise Richards could have a crush on this unattractive 1.70 m height man performing a boring and stupid character without any great human value. The low level of the title in Portuguese shows an absolutely lack of taste and finesse of the Brazilian distributor. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Tamanho É Documento" ("Size is Document" (literally), but meaning "size counts")
