I did not expect a whole lot from this movie, but I was actually surprised positively.

The plot is a classic romantic comedy boy-meets-girl with a couple of bumps down the road and a happy ending. There is no surprise there, but what did surprise me was how the movie related to real life. I have to admit, that there was quite a few situations, where I thought "Hey! I've tried that". It is a cheap trick, showing people a bit about themselves, but it works very well.

I have never been a fan of Jay Baruchel, as I have always thought that he was too awkward in a way (I am not saying that I am any less awkward!), but in this movie he has tighten up a bit plus the awkwardness fits in. He does a great job playing Kirk!
Alice Eve is very pretty in a way that suits her role just perfectly (pun intended), and her acting is also quite good.
That rest of Kirk's friends are both fun characters and well played. The dialog is rich and my favorite parts with them, is while working at the airport.

There is no fancy CGI or dramatic music in this movie. The focus is primarily on the dialogs and unsaid drama. That is nice for a change.

In general a quite god romantic comedy that turned out better than I thought. I would recommend that you saw this with a girlfriend or similar, but I should warn you, as it could start some interesting or embarrassing conversations about previous relationships.
Definitely worth watching - Everyone is a 10! :)
