I have to start with this movie is cute, but it’s not super memorable. Thankfully, Hugh Jackman saves the film. Honestly, I didn’t like Ashley Judd’s character very much. She got so into her own head about men and what was wrong with her that it got annoying, BUT it’s relatable. She wants to find love and thinks she does, then realizes she’s been used. It happens. It’s so normal. But some of the ways she handles things is aggravating. There is a very 2000s feel to the movie. Her hairstyle is the obligatory cute girl cut of the era. But it worked. I liked the movie. It is cute. Greg Kinnear is good as the jerk and I liked the reformed jerk in Hugh Jackman. Check it out.
