A fairly average romantic drama with quite good acting.
The plot is classic for it's genre and highly American, but that is what you expect when you put this movie on your DVD player.
The acting by the three lead roles are what pulls this movie above the average line.
Reese Witherspoon does a great "girl who lost all her dreams and finally realises she has to do something else".
I have always liked Paul Rudd, and in this movie he does a good "guy who's world is falling apart and he does not really know why", but he is struggling to pull it off at a few point, in my opinion.
Owen Wilson is classic as the laid back superstar Matty, and of cause Jack Nicholson is brilliant as the selfish bastard behind it all.
A good movie to watch with your significant other on a cosy evening on the couch.
