Perfect movie about being imperfect
10 July 2012 | by deslegumesSee all my reviews

In my book, this is one of the best and most enjoyable "Bridget Jones" type movies, albeit with a male protagonist. The characters initially seems like a hopeless crowd, and the humor is mostly based around their flawed relationships, but also the stresses and challenges of combining a meaningless job with looking for the perfect girlfriend play in. This movie does this very elegantly, with small but important scenes conveying the story to the viewer, and without being too obvious this movie seems fresh and surprisingly funny. The movie also avoids a lot of the pitfalls one sees in comedies these days. I would recommend this movie to anyone looking for a "feel good"-movie.
