One-line Reviews (23)

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

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.

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

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

Yet, the movie is, in this viewers opinion, totally pointless.

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

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

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

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

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

2 out of 10 very boring drama queens

I enjoyed it thoroughly.

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

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

Surprisingly Entertaining .

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.

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

Waste of time .

Well this movie is simply - a waste of time.

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.

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

Worst movie...

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.
