A meltingly hot summers day, the kids entertained with a DIY pool and no energy to do anything but blob, so I decided to put this movie on to watch. I'd watched the trailer and while it didn't hook me it did interest me enough to give it a try. I like Reese Witherspoon and Candice Bergen, so settled down with a cold drink to see where it would take me. This has the basis of many a romantic comedy, girl splits from partner, inadvertently meets new guy, old guy comes back for her, fist fight ensues and emotions are put to the test.

We get a quick background to Alice's past and the family she comes from, though other than being a good reason behind her home and the whole Hollywood theme, didn't really seem important and could have been skipped. Alice gets a night off from being a solo mum and ends up inviting three blokes, along with her girlfriends, back to her house and though nothing happens at first, these young lads move in and change her life, as she does there's. We have two intertwining stories, Alice who is trying to start again after splitting from her husband and the three young lads who want their script turned into a film.

I did find that a lot of this felt rather rushed. Alice has only been separated from her husband for five months, and whilst people do get infatuated etc it does just seem like she's gotten over it all rather quickly and life is dandy. She deals with a bad business venture and even though she then deals with it, it felt rather lacklustre and unmonumental. Alice was an overall nice character and well acted but it seemed like there was moments that needed far more emotion than was written into the script. The young lads were fabulous and do a lot of character growth, but again, there was just something missing.

This film gets a happy ending which you always want in a romantic comedy, there just wasn't enough to this for me to watch it again but it was a nice way to while away an hour and a half.
