An often witty and only occasionally obnoxious comedy that – thankfully – lacks the disturbing misanthropy of so many movies aimed at a young male audience. 72/100

A better-than-expected rom-com, offering nothing at all different but at least providing a few laughs thanks to a decent leading cast. 6/10
