Well this movie is simply - a waste of time.

It is bland, told solely from the side of the "victim" that does his best to sound like an absolute drama queen, failing miserably at that.

Certainly not one of Ben Affleck greatest pictures, but for the real Ben Affleck fan, this story can still be quite enjoyable, because there are lots of quirky, subtle, satirical jokes about egoism to be enjoyed.

All in all, a complete waste of time: no laughs, no love, no drama, no eurekas.

2 out of 10 very boring drama queens

And the people present in the theater also did enjoyed it.

The female characters are even more loathsome than the male characters: Barbi is a Dragon Lady racist cliché; Mrs. Jack A-Hole is a brainless Trophy Wife; and the less said about the Sharon Stone wanna-be, the better.

This movie is at times funny, hilarious, touching but all the time convincing and engaging.

The story was, boring and shallow, with ludicrous action points, and final that makes you say "What the...?"So, a "Feel good movie"?

This is really one of the worst movies I've ever seen...

He's shallow, uninteresting and his life is meaningless.

I've seen a couple of recent Ben Affleck films that disappointed me, and was expecting this to be much the same - a pointless comedy with trite, unfunny dialogue.

The climax, while entertaining, is predictable and feels rushed.

Romjin, normally hot and exciting, is listless and dull.

Overall, this is a very enjoyable movie with a satisfying conclusion instead of the usual eye-rolling fest with the easy way out.

Could have been better, BUT lots of great tongue in cheek jokes make it worth watching anyway.

Waste of time .

Surprisingly Entertaining .

Worst movie...

I enjoyed it thoroughly.

All I saw was a boring story about a horrible person, a talent agent, whom I found myself rooting against.

Ben Affleck is back to making the same boring, bad acting films.
