Am I the only one for whom Scarlett's Johanssen's character makes no sense? (And who did her makeup?) What motivates her sleeping with her father's boss? Does she hate Dad that much? And how does her putative innocence (she Am I the only one for whom Scarlett's Johanssen's character makes no sense? (And who did her makeup?) What motivates her sleeping with her father's boss? Does she hate Dad that much? And how does her putative innocence (she "never" has guys in her room) square with her coolly setting the scene--she could be a pro--as she draws said boss into bed. Later, of course, she coldly dumps the guy. In short, whatever is needed to get the plot lurching forward. She's a symptom of the film's overall bad faith. Expand

Way overrated as it moved along at a snail's pace. Unbelievable with poor acting and more holes in the story than swiss cheese. Very dissappointing to say the least.

What am I missing!?! I consider myself easliy entertained, but folks, this movie and its high rating baffle me. While this film might be okay to pass the time sitting on a transcontinental flight - it was a collasal waste of a Friday night What am I missing!?! I consider myself easliy entertained, but folks, this movie and its high rating baffle me. While this film might be okay to pass the time sitting on a transcontinental flight - it was a collasal waste of a Friday night at the theater. Acting: predictable, flat, sitcom contrived. Plot: Uninspired, contrived, soooooo unoriginal. I kept waiting for it to get as good as the abouve reviews...and it never did. Look...read the Metacritic reviews...go see it if you like...and see if you don't agree with me! Just leave halfway thru and get your money back. I wish I did. Expand

Absolute inane, tripey, plot-hole-filled male-fantasy garbage; a universe where women love to stay home and make love to their man to Diana Krall, starting in their early teens; where getting a job or a loan to pay for college is Absolute inane, tripey, plot-hole-filled male-fantasy garbage; a universe where women love to stay home and make love to their man to Diana Krall, starting in their early teens; where getting a job or a loan to pay for college is unthinkable. Whether it is the idea that while having two daughers is okay, but having a son is the END ALL BE ALL, that 50 year old women are PRETERNATURALLY EXCITED to become pregnant because it's so awesome on your body, that it's totally normal for an employee to be a complete asshole to his boss, or for a 26 year old still-married male boss to be boning an 18-year old, much less the 18-year-old daughter of your employee, that women who don't want kids are obviously horrible, cheating bitches (Selma Blair however, managed to convey the thrown-in quality of this line in the most amazing line delivery I've seen in a decade), that women don't work, that 18-year-olds could maybe get loans or work to pay for their own college or both parents could work, rather than having to get a third mortgage on their home, or the fact that the screenwriter doesn't know the difference between getting fired and getting laid off because there's been a takeover or a merger...yes, there is a difference.

This film is terrible. Normally a chick flick like this has a possible happy ending, this ending though just makes no sense. The only reason it gets a vote is because Scarlet Johansson is so fit, though does sound like a man.

Soft, feel good garbage. This movie has zero identity, is lazy and boring. None of the relationships feel real and the ones that even slightly resonate are stock and predictable. Topher Grace excells at being Topher Grace, which gets Soft, feel good garbage. This movie has zero identity, is lazy and boring.
