This is a good summer movie, fluffy and fun pretty much of the time. A fair amount of sex, some unexpected bromance at the end, good acting, good story.
So the guy is lonely and miserable (and he’s really worked to get that way, we see that right off the bat). He’s still attached to his ex-wife, who’s now getting married. So he’s being forced out of his depression, and wants a new woman without having to do any work at all. There’s the mandatory urination scene (have you noticed that the vomiting scenes are disappearing?). And then a dance that starts out embarrassing and ends up being fun – and he winds up with his woman. Who turns out to be more work than expected – and is Marisa Tomei.
This is actually a pretty good right-in-the-middle-of-the-paradigm-shift movie. Five years ago it would have been different, and five years from now it would be very different as well. But this is smack dab where we are. Throw in some California-life style stuff, enjoy some angst with Cyrus, feel sorry for the new husband of the ex-wife, and have a good time. It is summer, after all. No thinking allowed.
