This film is not breaking any new ground by any means. It is a stereotypical romantic comedy from the early 2000s. Reese Witherspoon is charming and takes on the role with vigor. This film's story is incredibly predictable. Nearly everything in this film is incredibly shallow. No depth is given to the characters or dialogue. There are a few funny moments, but overall this rom-com tries too hard at being a drama and suffers because of it. However, this film is not without it's own quirks. It is a good feel-good movie. This film is not an all-time great, nor is it the worst thing conjured up in a filmmakers mind. However, the lack of effort put in by everyone except for maybe Witherspoon leave this movie deeply lacking. Overall, I give this movie a 5.5/10.
