“ 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.
“ 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.
“ This is a movie that features the always enjoyable Morgan Freeman and a decent amount of female nudity.
“ Good cast can save a cliché script .
“ You have to be able to invest in each of the subplots, or you get bored.
“ This compelling little movie delivers plenty of character involvement.
“ It's just so cliché...
“ The story is entirely believable and the plot develops in intriguing and interesting ways.
“ Instead we go back to the rather uninteresting Bradley.
“ Save your money and your valuable time for a more worthy movie outing!
“ It's also cliché in that everyone falls in love at first sight, somehow confusing lust for love.
“ 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.
“ Weak storyline, predictable and uninspired dialogue, unimaginative (and excessive) nudity and sex for its R rating.
“ 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.
“ I left after 50 minutes.
“ 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.
“ I have no idea how it ends because after an hour, we gave up and walked out.
“ One of the worst movies I have ever seen.
“ 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.
“ We both enjoyed it.
“ 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.
“ Bland, really like someone wants to make us feel like diabetes and Blood Pressure patients.
“Don't waste your time, money, or spot in your rental queue.
“ Don't Waste Your Time or Money.
“ theme about the "mystery of love" is a very cliché & tired concept.
“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.
“ Sweet charming and so by the numbers as to be like a bland store bought cookie.
“ A nice enjoyable movie for everyone (most everyone, except for those who are shy about nudity) .
“ 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!
“ 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.
“So, if you want to bored senseless for long stretches of time, by all means see this movie.
“ Pretentious, slow, boring and manipulative it attempts to use sex to cover up the dumbest most unbelievable plot ever made into a released film.
“ Worst movie I've seen in years.
“ The first half was so sober and dull I was wondering if the actors would start delivering more than one line every two minutes!
“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.
“ 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.
“ It's so sweet that it makes Morgan Freeman unbearable in his patented role as great sage.
