Quotes

Giselle: If you think that you've found someone that you can stand to be with, and she can stand to be with you even when you're both having really shitty days, and neither of you feel like shaving anything. And he looks at you like you're a Victoria Secret model in an old sweatshirt and jeans... Don't give that one up. Because if you think you're gonna find that with everyone you sleep with, you don't... I oughta know.

Sweet small hitch
26 November 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Maybe the hitch is not sweet, but the movie itself is. You could argue about the characters a bit I reckon. But I really do like the movie, even though it has clichés (which feed into the sweet notion of it of course) and is predictable as it gets. Still the actors can pull off the obvious and work with it.

Since this is a romantic comedy and even the poster/cover art is pretty much revealing, we do know where this is heading, but the ride to get there has to be fun. And if you let yourself into it, than this ride can be a lot of fun. While not the best movie you've seen or will see, this is pretty decent indeed
