This movie gets a lot of flack and didn't do all that well at the box office, but it is a perfectly serviceable romantic comedy.
It will certainly never go on any list of Best Ridley Scott or Best Russell Crowe movies, but it is a nice, sweet movie.
Worth a rental if you like Russell Crowe, may be worth buying if you love him. It's certainly better than a few of his other movies of the same ilk. (Rough Magic, anyone?)
