  1. I can't think of much that might happen on a date evening that could be more annoying than this movie.
  2. Large chunks of the film seem like a record played at the wrong speed: The tempo of the dialogue as delivered doesn't match the lines as written, and the filmmakers are too lazy or too inept to make their convoluted premise jibe with any recognizable idea of human nature.

    I am just about ready to write off movies in which people make bets about whether they will, or will not, fall in love.

    This is the kind of movie that was doomed on the page, both by an inherently problematic premise and ill-conceived character motivations.

    When a chick flick goes wrong -- and this one hits a dead end in hell -- it's a wipeout.
  6. Directed by Donald Petrie ("Miss Congeniality") with about as much substance and style as a ham sandwich. It's a heavy hand that damps down such airy creatures as Hudson and McConaughey.
  7. All in all, the only lesson here is how to irritate. This is a stupid movie for stupid people. If you're a stupid person, knock yourself out. Please
