Nice writing, very good acting—especially Clive Owen—but I found the story became slightly tedious as it wore on. There were too many scenes that didn't go anywhere—at least for my taste.
This is one of those movies where you kind of suspend your disbelief throughout–hoping that everything will come together in the end. It doesn't. Still, I always enjoy watching Nicholas Cage.
Not quite as funny as I expected, but deeper than I would have thought, as well. This film deals with something that I've been puzzling over for most of my life—which is how to relate to males when they can be such idiots most of the time.
