That surprises me, because I loved it, and I'm not usually into romantic comedies. What makes this movie good is that it feels like it could really happen. Everybody has crappy days, and this movie is about finding the things in life that make you want to enjoy it again. The acting is really what makes this movie good. Paul Rudd is an extremely likeable lead, as is Reese Witherspoon. Heck, even Owen Wilson is fun to watch. But Jack Nicholson's character takes the cake. Most scenes, especially those with Nicholson, made me laugh out loud several times. This really is a sweet and funny movie, and I don't understand why it's getting such bad reviews, especially user reviews. It was wayyy better than Morning Glory. Expand

I found this movie enjoyable. while it had it's quirks and awkwardness I think this relates to trying to be original as a rom-com.

Although Jack Nicholson's character may be underwhelming, the rest of the movie is just endearing. James Broooks once again proves that he is king of thought-provoking dialogues.

James Broooks once again proves that he is king of thought-provoking dialogues. The scenes that the characters figure in are nothing new but are being presented under a fresh, realistic light that normally is rendered with unnecessary gloss by other romantic comedies. Reese Witherspoon and Paul Rudd give effective performances. Expand

Lots of bad reviews for a very good movie. It seems that most people today prefer their movies completely black and white (no grey areas or thought need be included). My family and I thought the movie was well written, acted and directed.
