To be honest, I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Simon Pegg, I thought I might as well check it out. First of all, the first issue I had with this movie is that Thandie Newton was in fact completely miscast in my opinion. I mean, it is not that she was bad but, in fact, she is so gorgeous that I had a hard time to believe that anyone, especially someone looking like Simon Pegg, would actually drop her on the altar. I mean, right away, that was something really difficult to admit. Still, I really like Simon Pegg and, as usual, he was quite funny here but, without him, I’m not sure I would have cared at all for this rather pedestrian story. It is interesting to note that this movie was actually David Schwimmer’s directing debut. Eventually, a few years later, he would release a follow-up called ‘Trust’ which was something completely different, a really strong and rather heartbreaking drama. Anyway, to conclude, in spite of its flaws, it was still a decent comedy and I think it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
