Casting Maggie Gyllenhaal as a calculating young skank didn't ring true - she's too old for the role, cavorting around with young 20-somethings.

Her singing performance at the end as a sort of character redemption (typical Hollywood Happy Ending!) made me want to slap the screenwriter/director. Kudrow's character was irritating and unrealistic, except the actress letting her age/wrinkles show through (minimal Botox - wow). Her meltdown at the beginning/ending made you feel cheated, like "oh come on heifer! Will you get a grip". The two son's featured in the film were zero-dimensional. Expand
