Storyline

In New York City, couple Joel and Molly are having dinner with their couple friends, Kyle and Karen. In the general discussion of their respective relationships and how they met, Joel and Molly, in telling their story, say that it is exactly like a corny romantic comedy. The story they end up telling not only has every romantic comedy cliché thrown in, but it is told in the style of a romantic comedy, complete with crazy characters who should be smarter to figure out a smoother path to a happy ending for Joel and Molly. But that one romantic comedy element that is the big payoff may not be reality, or perhaps it is. Written by Huggo

Quotes

Molly: Wanda, I really like this guy Joel, but I just don't know if he's the one. I mean, I wish there was some sort of sign that proved it.
Wanda: How about this? When you meet up with him tonight, change the way you look - just a tiny little bit, but if he notices, then, that's how you'll know he's the one.
Molly: [Muses] Change the way I look and see if he notices. Wanda, thank you, you're the best.
Wanda: You are.
[Molly moves forward and pecks Wanda on the lips. Wanda looks horrified]
Wanda: No.
Molly: Just felt like I was getting a vibe.

A crack at old school comedy - overlooked
17 January 2019 | by nrapny-01694See all my reviews

This is seriously one of the funniest movies I've seen in the last 10 years. We need more movies like "Airplane" which this movie is in the same style as. It really shouldnt be a dying thing. This movie has a fantastic cast and the jokes are unpredictable and I laugh every time.

Seriously, these types of comedies need to be revived!
