"Cupid's Cabin" is shown to be at Exit 22. If they were traveling back to NY via the Garden State Parkway from Atlantic City, Exit 22 would be 16 miles in the wrong direction (south) as the parkway exits are numbered in ascending order from south to north, and Atlantic City is Exit 38. Also, there is no exit 22 on the Garden State Parkway. See more »
Ah, using your one phone call to phone in a story. That is so you.
What are you doing here?
Hey, it's a special night. There's no way we're not spending it together. Hey, can we go in the same cell?

All right, I'm going.

Typical mess has ex-spouses Gerard Butler (in the titled role) and Jennifer Aniston (an investigative reporter) running from crime syndicates after the latter uncovers the truth about a murder. The usual confusion and silly situations take place which have apparently been found in films of the type since the beginning of the cinema. Role players Christine Barasnki and Jason Sudeikis try to resuscitate the proceedings, but are ultimately unable to. Butler and Aniston make for an intriguing pairing, but their chemistry is nowhere to be found as Butler comes off flat and Aniston as a spoiled high school cheerleader-type. Old hat situations and outcomes make for a predictable and yawn-inducing bore which never comes to life. 2 stars out of 5.
