The sensuous Angie Harmon has emphasis and timing that are at once breathtaking.

As usual, Jon Lovitz in a supporting role only helped, and the whole cast had snappy dialogue to play with.

It's easy on the eye, charming, slightly insightful, positive, and entertaining.

This is a very entertaining, light comedy about a man who discovers that love is more important than money or success.

Ultimately, an unexpected phenomenon to find out more about the real "Cindy" keeps Ryan on his toes.

Good advice would be not only to stay away, but to not even look at the box, waste of time and talent.

Her beautiful face is, all at once, a combination of attitude, confusion and satisfaction that she's the "It" girl of the moment.

Loved the movie: There's a lot to like - Snappy dialogue, genuine laughs, a bit of pathos and generally warm bubble-gum feel to it.

This was so predictable I was surprised to find that the director wasn't a five year old.

Soon, readership is up and Page, having an unexpected and unwanted attraction to Ryan, has to fight her better judgement on getting involved with the "attached" Ryan and her feelings for him.

The comedy is well directed and the love affair between Angie Harmon(Page Henson) and Charlie Sheen(Ryan Turner) is unexpected and comes as a surprise.

The dialogue is at best predictable and clichéd.

Just a waste of time.

A predictable ending leaves the movie flat, although you will be cheering for Ryan and Page anyway.

This movie isn't going to make anybody's Top 100 list, but it's consistently entertaining.

As was shown by the number of people getting out of the theatre at the preview I attended, this movie starts out a bit dull.

It got a little boring and there were a few moments of mediocrity, but the plot scheme was wonderful, the characters were cool and lovable, and it is completely enjoyable from beginning to end, in my honest opinion.

Really Very Enjoyable .

The film reminds me of those type of "frothy" comedies they made in the 1960's (without the heavy sexual humor that this film has of course) and because of it's unique blend of comedy, light romance and pathos the makers ended up with a witty highly entertaining movie.

It's not Oscar-nomination stuff, but it is a very enjoyable way for canoodling couples to spend an hour and a half with a bottle of wine or a bag of popcorn.

One of its requirements is that it still be as crisp and enjoyable after three viewings.

A very entertaining rental.

His subsequent relationship with Page is much more entertaining.

Really kooky, surprisingly enjoyable romantic comedy and overall a lot of fun to watch.

Very entertaining and cute romance.

Entertaining romantic comedy.

For the most part, it was predictable, but nevertheless entertaining.
