Well it isn't a terrible romantic comedy
27 May 2010 | by KineticSeoulSee all my reviews

This really isn't terrible as some people are claiming it to be, yeah it isn't a great romantic comedy but it isn't a boring one either. So it's basically about a girl named Genevieve Gernier who has this philosophy of never dating more than five times and never keeping a long term relationship until she meets a guy named Greg Gatlin who owns a restaurant near her flower shop. And yes these 40 yr old protagonists who acts immature and stupid at times, but it didn't get to the point of it getting so very annoying. I personally think it's cause of the movie "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" which is probably a better romantic comedy that Genevieve Gernier is in is why this film is probably taking a lot of bashing for. Anyways yeah it's silly, it's stupid, and it's unrealistic, but I personally didn't think it was terrible and it did have it's moments. I mean I was entertained for most of it, despite it's flaws.

5.8/10
