This is a movie that features the always enjoyable Morgan Freeman and a decent amount of female nudity.

Don't Waste Your Time or Money.

We both enjoyed it.

There is also a positive message, however cliché, that with the tragedies that bring so much sorrow, life goes on and if we make the best of it, we'll see the blessings.

The story is entirely believable and the plot develops in intriguing and interesting ways.

I have not read the book on which this was based, but I cannot imagine it had the simplistic, contrived, and corny plot that the movie contained.

Really, this is a painfully bad movie that I would have walked out on except that I was too lazy to reach for the remote control which had fallen on the floor.

It's also cliché in that everyone falls in love at first sight, somehow confusing lust for love.

I have no idea how it ends because after an hour, we gave up and walked out.

The pacing was so painfully slow and quiet, I could hear our crowded theater straining in their seats to stay awake during the long shots of Greg Kinnear's glossy eyes trying to convey his disbelief at why another woman has left him (dude maybe it IS you!

Worst movie I've seen in years.

Part of the problem is Greg Kinnear, who ever since "As Good as it Gets" cant shake the gay image, but kidding aside really he plays yet another lost puppy dog cliché "good guy" with pal Morgan Freeman trying to give sagely advice while facing his own past mess.

Don't waste your time, money, or spot in your rental queue.

Save your money and your valuable time for a more worthy movie outing!

Contrived!

Played well by Toby Hemingway and a stunning Alexa Davalos, the two lovers have overcome much in their lives and certainly appreciate the bond they have.

Instead we go back to the rather uninteresting Bradley.

There's Morgan Freeman the "wise old man", who is friends with Greg Kinnear, who is a bit naive when it comes to love despite his bad experiences, which make his character more enjoyable.

First movie I ever walked out on in my life and I wish I did it 39 minutes earlier.

For all of those who left thinking it was a bad movie well in the end you did waste your time.

Bland, really – like someone wants to make us feel like diabetes and Blood Pressure patients.

One of the worst movies I have ever seen.

Good cast can save a cliché script .

This is the first movie (I won't even dignify it by calling it a film) I have walked out on in a long time.

It's just so cliché...

You have to be able to invest in each of the subplots, or you get bored.

I left after 50 minutes.

Sweet charming and so by the numbers as to be like a bland store bought cookie.

The movie starts with Morgan Freeman playing a retired philosophy professor, sleepless in Portland (close enough to Seattle), walks pensively from his house, with voice over of his thoughts, something to the effect of: The Greek gods were bored, invented humans, still bored, invented love (which was not boring), tried it themselves and invented laughter so they could stand it.

Perhaps we get to know the story of an older professor (Morgan Freeman) and his wife as well as any other, but it gets a bit tiresome seeing Freeman pop up every ten minutes or so dispensing wisdom and philosophy.

This compelling little movie delivers plenty of character involvement.

Weak storyline, predictable and uninspired dialogue, unimaginative (and excessive) nudity and sex for its R rating.

Pretentious, slow, boring and manipulative it attempts to use sex to cover up the dumbest most unbelievable plot ever made into a released film.

The first half was so sober and dull – I was wondering if the actors would start delivering more than one line every two minutes!

It's so sweet that it makes Morgan Freeman unbearable in his patented role as great sage.

So, if you want to bored senseless for long stretches of time, by all means see this movie.

Another track follows the young couple, Oscar and Chloe (Toby Hemingway and the stunning Alexa Davalos), who marry and are happy until tragedy strikes them as well.

A nice enjoyable movie for everyone (most everyone, except for those who are shy about nudity) .

theme about the "mystery of love" is a very cliché & tired concept.
