Review: 

            Well, I didn’t want to see this film because it is a transparent movie and there are others movies recently out with the same concept (“Friends with benefits” and “Love and other drugs”). This film was an okay watch, if I must say. I did, however, notice something about Ashton during my viewing; his characters in all of his romantic movies are all the same. He looks deeply into his co-stars eyes the same, he gives off the same shy meet and greet, the same hopeless romantic vibe and the same emotional outburst during a verbal fight. I believe he needs to change genres in order for me to take him seriously as an actor. Natalie was ok; nothing must to say on her. I didn’t like the ending, it was too clique and predictable. All in all, it’s not a terrible movie but I will not see this film again.
