    It's a paint-by-numbers romantic comedy that never extends past its comfort zone, and just lets Ben Stiller and Phillip Seymour Hoffman chew up scenery to provide the laughs to string along a flimsy plotline that does little to evoke much investment in the principal characters in the film. There was some big laughs, but overall, the story is average and is pretty forgettable.

    I give it 2 stars, or a grade of C.

    The plot is really quite useless, but it was definitely an enjoyable movie. I got a lot of good laughs out of it.

    Lots of similarities to the tv show Friends.

    Bad ending (to go along with the plot).

    Jennifer Aniston looked surprisingly amazing (understatement!), considering her aging appearance on Friends this season.

    I'd give the movie 3/4 stars. I'll buy this movie when it comes out on DVD.
