Quotes

Danny: I think if I was going to have any super power it would be the ability to speak Spanish. That would be amazing wouldn't it? 'Cause you could say stuff like "Hola", "Gazpacho".
Nat: You just said it.
Josh: You're saying it now.
Danny: Oh, wow.
Hugh: Not strictly speaking a super power, though, is it really? Otherwise everyone in Brazil would be superheroes.
Danny: [Nods]
[mumbles]
Danny: Mm, true.
Naomi: They speak Portuguese in Brazil. You cock!

A year?!? Barely twenty minutes!
12 December 2013 | by amlynnwebSee all my reviews

I got this for the actors, whom I all think are brilliant. I didn't know much about it, but read the back cover description on the DVD and thought, eh, worth a shot... And I leave this movie appalled. Hardly funny - a few key moments, but mostly trying too hard to be "alternative" - and the main characters are generally unlikeable. Actually, I retract that: Josh is okay, but Nat I despise. I literally rooted out loud for Chloe (Anna Feris), the ex-girlfriend. And Simon Baker in another ridiculously alluring/womanizing role to a committed woman... I just didn't find it funny. The only heart I saw in the film was a small moment between Minnie Driver's character and the character's husband, a brief respite from this train wreck of a film.

If you're looking for a quirky, against-the-grain romantic comedy, you could do much better anywhere else.
