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

Very entertaining.

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.

very entertaining .

The film is a simple gem worth watching several times.

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.

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).

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.

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

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.
