This is a ROMANTIC COMEDY with ‘A Christmas Carol’ spin , bearing this in mind you’ll be comfortably entertained. Also it was a treat to see Michael Douglas in action as he is always convincing in whatever role he takes on and this was was no exeception. There is also undeniably on-screen chemistry between McConaughey and Garner.
There are however, two things which sort of bugged me in this movie. Firstly in these day and age, how could so many women be smitten with such a character as portrayed by McConaughey? A little too far fetched don’t you agree?
Secondly apart from the shallow, rude and lewd portrayal of McConaughey’s character Connor, how could any woman believe such a character would be able to change after two decades of female degradation? Let alone a strong and bright Doctor? ( Garner’s character )
This movie in my opinion is worth watching at least once.
