I watched this movie Friday evening on the plane on the way to San Antonio using my new Mobile PC phone.
I like John Cusak, but I get tired of seeing the same movie again and again. Naturally all the dates she gets fixed up with are losers (from the standard selection) except the obvious choice. There is a gay couple and they are very happy together. Some obnoxious family members. The nicest part of the movie is the wooden rowing craft – not a racing shell, bit more to it, but beautiful. The lonely handsome Dad. The lovely daughter that for some reason somebody dumped. The empty headed promiscuous blonde. The roommate or friend who pretends to some wisdom but is unsuccessful himself.
It’s not a terrible movie, just very formulaic.
