  • 2 stars "2 1/2 stars...saved by some nice moments. Good support by a couple of fringe characters i.e. the Mike and Molly lady and a woman playing a social worker. Glad I didn't pay theatre prices to see this movie."
  • 4 stars "Not a typical rom-com. Katherine Heigl and Josh Duhamel had surprisingly good chemistry! Both me and my husband enjoyed this movie."
  • 4 stars "I really liked this! Funny and emotional!"
