Keith L. Williams,
This is a great addition to the rom-com genre. The characters are attractive and engaging, enjoy great chemistry and the dialogue crackles along throughout. Jack Quaid and especially Maya Erskine are excellent in the lead roles. Even the last half hour doesn't flag and so avoids something which plagues so many films in this genre. One aspect which engaged my post viewing ruminations was whether the lead female character Alice was a Manic Pixie Dream Girl. I concluded that while she probably was - after all the essential arc of the film is the overcoming of the male character's lifelong romantic commitment phobia by his association with a dynamic female friend at a series of weddings - nevertheless her character is so rich, well-drawn and zestful that it doesn't matter. Heartily recommended for those who enjoy their rom-coms and even those who don't.
