The opening sequence that starts with a shot of the book The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins on Jason Fryman's (Adam Scott) nightstand was intended to end with a shot of the late Christopher Hitchens book on Julie Keller's (Jennifer Westfeldt) nightstand. A dilemma followed over whether the shot of Hitchen's book should stay in the film given the author's recent death. The shot of Hitchen's book was ultimately dropped due to time. See more »

When Harry meet Sally and had a baby
Okay,I wasn't going to say anything but I was so baffled by the other reviews I feel compelled.
This film isn't, just in case you were wondering,' untouched genius'. It's simply , okay. It's like watching people who are quite nice going through a storyline which is slightly familiar. No alarms and no surprises.
I don't wish to add spoilers but one crucial scene which for me explains all the films weaknesses is this; Jennifer Westfeldt looks at herself in the mirror wearing a pair of heels, she decides she doesn't like them , so takes them off and puts on a pair of boots which zip up the side. She sits down on a bed and puts them on, one at a time, then once again she looks at herself in the mirror. This time she is happy with her choice. This is shot in real time, and if memory serves correctly without an edit. Takes about 45 secs. When you write , direct and star [ especially when you haven't been in a movie for a while] ,screen time must be very exciting but filming yourself looking at yourself , pretty explains the whole movie for me.
There's a good reason Kristen Wigg features on the poster, Bridesmaids made millions, she's funny and has got game.
But imagine being in the marketing meeting where you had to explain to Jennifer why her face wouldn't be appearing in any of the advertisements for the film she wrote, directed and starred in. Ouch, that must have been a tough day for her.
