A screenwriter working on a script for a romantic movie is having a hard time because he is a little jaded when it comes to love since his mother abandoned him when he was a boy. So he spends his time ruining every relationship he has. But he really needs to make the script, so he turns to his friends for their experiences. But it's not enough. He then meets a girl who captures his heart. Problem is that she's already engaged. But she allows him to be her friend.Written by

Just before the end, when they talk next to the giant Cupid's bow, the large group of people that came to see the guy stop the wedding vanish as he walks in front of them. Followed by the comment from The Narrator "even my imagination took a kick to the balls", showing that the group of people were not real but part of his imagination. See more »
Did you know that when someone attractive enters your sight-line your pupils dilate 20 percent? Or when someone falls in love, their brain floods with dopamine? You know what else causes that chemical reaction? Narcotics. And it's crazy, right? But that's the fun shit I'm learning right now. See, I've been hired to write this romantic comedy screenplay. And the problem is I've never actually, ya know, been in love, so... it's slow-going.

Rom-Coms are not the easiest to make. If you try to make a real good one that is. But even the "bad" ones make their money back mostly. And I wouldn't categorize this as a bad one. Does it have some misplaced dialog and some clichés in it? Yes, though it's not the first one to do so and its lead actors are charming enough for you to not care too much about that.
While the inevitable outcome is predictable, there may be a few obstacles along the way that are kind of refreshing to see. And while our main protagonist could easily slip into unlikeable territory, Chris Evans is there to save him from that fate. No pun intended, for a decent effort. Nothing more, but certainly nothing less either
