(This review may contain spoilers).
I have seen this film before… I went to see it at the cinema. But when I saw it was showing on television, I remembered how much I enjoyed it originally and decided to watch it.
Love triangles aren’t an original idea, but I did think that this was an entertaining way of handling it. It was interesting that the two guys were partners and best friends and I felt that added an interesting dynamic… more so because I could actually see the friendship between the two guys, unlike a lot of things where there are love triangles.
I recognised a number of the actors in this film and it was interesting to see them playing off each other. I’ve seen Chris Pine in a number of different films, but I’ve seen Reese Witherspoon mostly in comedy films.
A lot of the pranks the two guys used were quite amusing, especially since they used the technology available to them to put obstacles in each other’s paths.
I really liked some of the banter in this film and there were a number of moments I found myself smiling. The humour worked really well, even if it was a little crude/obvious at times. I somehow managed to completely forget the ending, too, so that was a surprise when it came to it.
I did like this film. It had engaging characters and some nice instances of humour. I wouldn’t buy it at full price, but it’s a film I wouldn’t mind watching again.
