  • Ughhhhhhhhhhh

    Other than Ray Ramono the film was terrible. Holly Hunter is insufferable.
  • Terrible

    By bsquadleader
    This is one of the worst movies I've seen. The story and acting were incredibly shallow. Every moment was cringeworthy. I really don't understand how it could be 98% on RT.
  • Overwrought

    By Bcnco
    It has it's small tender moments as a pretty run-of-the-mill romcom, but when the most genuine, funny, and naturally unforced performance comes by way of Ray Romano you know it must be a pretty weak script these actors are working from.
  • So many layers

    Excellent movie for just about any (adult) human. Ray Romano's best performance to date.
  • Fantastic, modern romantic comedy

    It’s refreshing to see such a good film about life and love that embraces the way that the world works in 2017. It’s relatable in a way that a lot of other rom-coms just aren’t. Also, it was genuinely hilarious, and that’s always a plus.
  • Not all that..

    Okay, yes this movie was good. But honestly, NOT 98% rotten tomato score worthy. I got super bored like five times...I don't think they developed on their relationship enough. Just like..all of a sudden they were dating. No fireworks. Cute story IRL tho
  • Surprisingly a good movie

    I just randomly watched this movie not expecting much and was so pleasantly entertained. Sometimes this genre can be very cliche but this managed to be a love story that wasn’t! Good acting and story line!
  • Hype

    By zenmind1985
    I'm surprised it got the rating it did. I thought the acting and script was very poor. There were several instances that just seemed so unrealistic and innapropriate given the context.
  • Let Down

    I thought it would be a lot funnier than it was. The acting wasn’t great at all. I wouldn’t waste the money renting it.
