Along Came a Mediocre Rom Com
15 February 2019 | by cardsrockSee all my reviews

Ben and Jen do their best to overcome an unengaging story and a lack of forward momentum in Along Came Polly. There are some decent laughs throughout, but nothing that stuck with me after the credits. It's not awful by any means, but it's pretty forgettable.
