Thoughts: As sad as it is for me to say, I only went to see this movie because of Ashton Kutcher. I had no hopes for it at all but I was proven wrong, surprisingly. It’s not the best movie I’ve seen but it’s certainly not the worst. It’s cheesy and predictable but it’s funny and it has heart. I cannot overemphasize the vast improbability of nearly every element of this film but once you get past that, the film is enjoyable. Katherine Heigl plays the same character she’s ever played: uptight and awkward at times. In this movie, she’s pretty much playing her character in The Ugly Truth. There were moments in the film where I was actually cringing in embarrassment for her, but she gets better towards the end, as it always is for her. I honestly liked this movie and laughed out loud more times than I expected. However, if you’re not into romantic comedies or if you take yourself too seriously, I would say wait until this comes out on DVD. I don’t recommend this one but if you want to see it, I say, go for it. I wasn’t disappointed.
