Julia Roberts was pretty good, but I found it hard to get past Lily Collins' huge eyebrows. I thought they were going to pull a The Princess Diaries at first. A few sections of slapstick comedy detracted a bit as well.
I actually find this romantic sitcom pretty entertaining. Amanda Peet and David Walton have good chemistry, and the supporting cast is pretty great as well. Hopefully they can keep the spark as the relationship evolves.
It's surprising that a man wrote and directed this, as it seems to have a strong feminine bias. An odd mix of cliche, combined with cutting through a few myths - it has a good cast but ultimately feels very contrived.
Charlize Theron's character is so ridiculous, yet she pulls it off believably - and the film wraps up in an unusually non-judgemental way that feels satisfying rather than trite or preachy. Not hilarious, but amusingly well done.
I didn't realize this would be all in old Shakespearean English - which totally detracts from the film. It's the equivalent of broken English dialogue now, even though it wasn't when written. Disappointing.
