Rick: Hold on a second. Hey, there.
Natalie: Hey.
Rick: [Rick starts to talk on the phone while Natalie undresses herself] I feel like you're not hearing me, because if you were, I wouldn't be repeating myself, that's why. No, because I told... look, I told you three times, okay? Look... We'll get going in two. No, the Nagasaki merger has to happen at 15.6. That's black and white. There's no doubt about that, okay?

A woman that needs no saving gets saved by a guy who doesn't want to save her
4 September 2015 | by sideriteSee all my reviews

As a romantic comedy it is not bad, but that means very little, since the standard for these things is pretty low. The biggest sin of the film is that it doesn't have anything new to bring to the table. From the moment you read the description or from the first five minutes you know what is going to happen and how it is going to happen.

Yes, Lyndsy Fonseca is damn cute and yes, the film does star Bruce Campbell. But guess what? She is boring and he is not funny. And the "hip" references of the film are actually quite insulting and show the indifference, incompetence or both of the people who wrote the script.

Bottom line: I see no reason why anyone would watch this film. Not because it is awful, but because unless you are a hooker with feelings for someone or a sex addict who needs a hooker as a girlfriend it is unlikely you will feel anything for any of the characters.
