    This putrid action flick crawls along for two and a half hours before expiring in a septic field of bad one-liners, halfhearted catchphrases, obliterated cars, vicious slow-motion bullet penetration, graphic corpse mutilations played for laughs, and shamefully hollow bonding scenes between its two dyspeptic megastars.

    Repulsive 80s flashback.

    This might have had some potential as a German exercise in self-examination, but as a tony BBC Films production, with the actors all speaking British-accented English (including Jersey girl Farmiga), it reeks of self-righteousness.

    As romantic comedies go, this is the worst drivel I've seen since Nia Vardalos's "I Hate Valentine's Day."
    • 17 Metascore
    • 0 J.R. Jones
    A nauseating, stridently phony rom-com.
