Other than the father being a slut and the ex wife being okay with it....decent movie. Butler was charming as ever and good supporting characters. However he has sex with two different women within the same week he trys to gets back with his ex: so that just ruined it for me. Plus when his kid asks his dad never to leave and he continues to look for job out of town, that was final straw to make me disgusted.

Dumb. Seems like the point was to focus on the male lead - who really is not that good looking. Dumb storyline, predictable outcomes and nothing great about the acting.

It was okay and lighthearted. My husband and I liked it; a decent watch on a lazy evening.

Possibly one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I was looking forward to watching it because of the actors involved, but I only completed the viewing to see how long this train wreck could continue moving after it derailed--which was within the first few minutes. Trite and boring are the top two words that come to mind to describe this movie. There was ~barely~ a story holding all of the scenes they pieced together, and as a closing note: Jessica Biel must have become an expert door opener and window-gazer as those two activities comprised more than 95% of all of the scenes she was in.
If you are wondering whether or not to spend a few hours of your precious time watching this movie: don't.

Excellent movie, I highly recommend it.

a pleasant enough distraction for women who've been married....
