Great Lighthearted Romantic Comedy
6 March 2013 | by ddkampfSee all my reviews

I have been a fan of the Lawrence brothers for a long time. The movies of their's that I have seen have generally been wholesome, family oriented movies. This one is no exception. It is a simple plot but has a few twists here and there sufficient to keep you watching. I enjoyed the comedic friction between Vince and Jennifer. It is interesting how Jennifer and Vince get thrown together, and how much of a challenge they have at pulling off their charade. As others have said, loan shark's enforcers are not really very believable and one of them could have used some acting lessons. However, overall it was a very enjoyable romantic comedy. It was refreshing and clean, without the cursing and nudity so common in today's films.
