Storyline

A hopeless romantic (Domhnall Gleeson) thinks he's found true love with an older woman (Christina Applegate), only to learn that she's married and their encounter was merely an instrument of revenge against her neglectful husband (Thomas Haden Church). Initially out for blood, the husband finds himself strangely sympathetic to the romantic's plight. He decides the best way for the two of them to get revenge is by moving in together, cutting her out and living a bachelor's life.

Trivia

Dawson's Creek (1998) was not the TV show Stensland was obsessed with in early versions of the screenplay. It was Felicity (1998) and then Gilmore Girls (2000) until Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions came aboard the project. Since Sony also produced _"Dawson's Creek" (1998)_, the production was able to license the show easily and the script was rewritten. See more »

Goofs

When Stensland watches the TV show, "Dawson's Creek," which the character claims was recorded onto VHS from its original air-date, the theme song is inaccurate. It's not the original theme song (Paula Cole's "I Don't Want to Wait"), but rather, it's Jann Arden's "Run Like Mad;" an alternative theme song used for the DVD and Netflix releases to avoid paying expensive royalties to Paula Cole.

Goofy flick With a startling number of laughs, if you're open to it
1 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

So now i'm in that awkward place of my review where i've already said everything in the title. But. All the thespians involved played their roles to the hilt, but Gleeson was so good he took a little time to get used to. Every time he was on screen in the first bit was perfect, but he takes a hot minute to start liking, just like a real person might.

The script was actually strange in that there were a few brief moments throughout when it was a little clunky, surrounding incredibly smooth portions. There were parts that were downright impressive for a goofy comedy, but then it would wobble a little bit.

Still. Highly enjoyable for a lighthearted romp. Enjoy.
