However, the scenes intended to be the most intense sometimes don't work quite as well as they should, leaving some of the more pivotal moments feeling a little flat.

very entertaining .

An unconventional love story in some ways, but quite ordinary in others are offset by some contrived plot devices.

The film is a simple gem worth watching several times.

I'm very happy for them both in their personal success and in this very enjoyable movie.

I felt pretty bored while watching several expository scenes (though the key scenes between the leads were pretty sweet).

She fixes Janice up with long-haired Topher Grace as Doug , an author who specializes in self-help books, but in reality is a self-centered bore.

The Giant Mechanical Man fits comfortably into this tradition, its lack of grandeur adding to its charm, but at times it's a flick that feels a little too contrived to become something you'll want to revisit.

I highly recommend it for anyone looking for some light entertainment that's intelligent.

The one instance we see is her being hired for a day to stand in front of the door to an empty closet in an art museum, just to make sure no one attempts to enter the door.

Very entertaining.
