When Rachel describes that the Pina Colada song is about cheating, she mixed up the story. She said that the husband puts an ad in the paper and the wife responds to it because she is also thinking about cheating. It was actually the wife who put the ad in and he responded to hers. See more »

Good movie with good acting
4 August 2018 | by odree-50206See all my reviews

I didn't expect much when I watched that movie and I actually really liked it. Ok, I just love Kristen Bell so I might not be 100% objective here... However it's a cute story with true to life characters. Might not be original, and the (happy) ending was pretty obvious but I imagine that's what we need once in a while. I thought it was a simple story, not too cheesy with endearing characters that I could relate to. When reading some of the reviews I was really surprised to see how many people didn't like that film. Even if it's not the movie of the year, it doesn't deserve so much hatred. I guess it just depends on what you like. So if you enjoy comedy/drama movies, give it a try and make your own opinion.
