All of the characters are good-natured and fun, and display realistic responses and a great deal of humanity in reacting to an unusual and very funny situation.Dane Cook's character is a good person, in a realistic (non-Hollywood) sort of way.Apparently every movie must fit neatly into a certain genre, and cannot deviate from standard and infinitely repeated tropes.This movie was supposed to be a "romantic comedy", a genre which I generally do not care for, as they tend to be sappy, depressing, and just generally boring.This striking dichotomy has prompted me to post my first ever IMDb review.Literally every professional critic I could find gave this movie a terrible review, which I can only attribute to closed mindedness and a lack of imagination.Every woman he has slept with has met and married her dream man immediately following.
If you are a mother and you are collecting child support, you are not a single mother. The rest of us who have to LIVE with your fucked up, emotionally scarred children will PAY you to have a fucking abortion. Second, single mothers are clearly really, really shitty at making life decisions. You both put each other’s happiness above your own. Now divorced mothers, who are a breed of single mothers, MIGHT be a little different, but whenever you approach one, sing this little song in your head: it takes two to tango. Even if it’s TRUE that the husband was a colossal fuck-up, you need to ask yourself what kind of imperceptive moron couldn’t spot that?
Depression, suicide, drug abuse, jail and psychiatric medications are all more common in populations of children raised by single mothers. journalid=37&articleid=107§ionid=692 Ladies, this is why abortion exists!
Children of single mothers do poorly on every imaginable scale: they have more emotional problems, experience more stress, are more likely to grow up poor, they have lower educational achievements and experience way more behavioral problems than children who grow up with married parents.
Nonetheless, virtually all reviewers seem to decry that this movie refused to take out all the "smut" and revert itself into another in a line of bland and lifeless romantic comedies.
An oft repeated line I found in reviews was that "this movie is much closer to Caligula than Sleepless in Seattle".
