"It is the most fun movie I've watched in a long time. Great script, actors, with a steady surprise around every corner. Totally awesome! My husband and I have watched it several times and cannot get enough. Way to go!"
"Loved it! One of the best comedies I have seen in years. It's full of witty one liners and a few good ole belly laughs. Definitely worth seeing!"
"So I technically didnt see the last 15 minutes of this but I figure my review is still fair. I didnt find any of the three leads particularly funny. The only one who I actually found hilarious was John Krasinski. Besides him the movie was rather boring and just...not that entertaining.
What did this movie teach me? Some actors should not do comedy."
