  • Summary: After the sudden death of her fiancĂ©, Gray Wheeler (Garner) finds comfort in the company of his friends: lighthearted comic Sam (Smith), hyper-responsible Dennis (Jaeger) and, oddly enough, his old childhood buddy Fritz (Olyphant), an irresponsible playboy whom she'd previously pegged as one of the lease reliable people in the world.

  1. Rough around the edges, but once you get used to the laconic pace, the plot grooves along nicely.
  2. 60
    One of those movies where the small pleasures stack up high enough to dwarf the disappointments.
  3. Reviewed by: Lael Loewenstein

    A so-so romantic dramedy.
  4. 50
    Gray says she hates fishermen who catch and release: Getting jerked around hurts the jaw. See this movie and you'll know the feeling.
  5. An unfunny, undramatic comedy-drama that asks us to care about lying idiots making implausible choices.
  6. 40
    Now it's just another romantic comedy, neither terribly bad nor truly great, buoyed along on currents of hope and post-traumatic good cheer.
  7. 12
    The chick comedy-drama Catch and Release may look bland, but it's not. It's worse. To rise to the level of blandness, it would need to have a few gallons of Tabasco dumped into it.
