When Sam crashes his car into a snow drift, the airbags deploy individually, several seconds after impact, and they stay inflated. In an actual crash, they'd deploy instantly and simultaneously then deflate. See more »

Terrible
3 December 2012 | by mark635See all my reviews

Do NOT bother with this over-budgeted, poorly-written, over-acted, hammy waste of film stock. This movie was so bad it made me long for infinitely better movies like Barney's Great Adventure and Ed (note sarcasm).

Too many story lines (if you can even call them that)+too many stars=a complete crap fest.

I thought Zac Efron was terrible (not sure it was his acting more than it was the awful lines that were written for him). Michelle Pfeiffer (who is usually smoking hot) looked absolutely awful (I'm thinking this was on purpose since her character was basically worn out with life in general). Completely forgettable performances by all involved (would give Hector Elizondo a pass but his accent was a miss).

I usually like Gary Marshall films, but this one was a "worthless steaming pile of cow dung...figuratively speaking."

To sum up--other than the gratuitous shots of NYC, this movie has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. You'd be better off sticking a hot needle in your eye. At least then you'd be blinded and unable to view this crap fest.
