I saw the trailer attached to Juno and there was a collective moan from the audience. I hate movies where the kids talk like adults.

Definitely... looks lame. But I see this having major appeal for chicks. I feel for the guys that allow their women to drag them to this Valentine's weekend. I, thankfully, won't be one of them.

This looks lame, but in a good way, if that makes sense.

Now i'll be the first to admit that this has "Chick Flick" written all over it. But look at how this could be a good movie for men too ....

Ryan Reynolds - HILARIOUS
Rachel Weisz - Crazy Hot
Elizabeth Banks - Super Hot
Isla Fisher - Scorching Hot

Those 4 reasons are good enough for me.

I was going to say basically the same thing. Besides, chick flicks usually have enough comedy to keep me interested.

The Best romantic comedy since Annie Hall?

When does this come out again? Is it the 14th or the 15th?

Is it just me, or is the title somewhat contradictory?

I think that's the point. Either that or there are a lot of Oasis songs on the soundtrack.

I love Abigail, so thats the only reason why I would want to see this one. Ryan Reynolds looks good too, but the storyline makes me wonder if it will really stand out...maybe a rental?

Is anyone else getting a "shill" vibe in here? I can't believe anyone is this excited about what is probably going to be an utterly forgettable flick.

Trailer IMO looks awful, but my girl wants to see it just based on the fact it's "from the people who brought you Love Actually".

Will I go see it with her?

Possibly, Hell No

I really enjoyed Love Actually so I'm gonna check this one out. Looks like it suffers from Cute Overload though.

And all we women get is Ryan Reynolds?

When I first heard of this movie I was hoping it would be an Oasis Rock-Opera ala Across The Universe. I would have been first in line and very, very drunk.
