A bachelor finds love that puts his set of rules to the test.
2 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

I enjoyed the movie. The dialog was interesting and witty at times. The developed concepts are definitely from a "man's point of view" and often echo reality. There are some formulaic portions such as a love-triangle and elements of plot progression, but those are to be expected in a rom-com. The acting was good and I did emotionally relate to the main character. The ending albeit unexpected lends verisimilitude. Perhaps the poor rating seen here and on rotten-tomatoes is due to the unconventional ending. It's a relaxing movie that can spark engaging conversations, especially regarding the glimpse it offers into the mind of a typical guy.
