It is also not funny or touching. The tone is completely off leaving the audience wondering whether they are watching a comedy or a drama and leaving the actors looking like inexperienced rookies, unsure of the film's genre. Their "funnies" aren't funny and their dramatic moments are not believable. Further, the chemistry between Rudd and Witherspoon was that of an estranged brother and sister. They came across so completely mismatched it was uncomfortable, even repulsive, to watch. Rudd, typically a very pleasant actor, played his character with little charm and even less sex appeal. There are lines delivered that are left hanging in space, lines with no tie-ins, no purpose and in need of the cutting room. I left the theatre scratching my head, wondering what the Director was thinking...and understanding why my mother spent the last hour of the film playing scrabble on her Iphone. Though there are a couple good take-a-way lines ("why do girls look so pretty when they are unsure about you?"), the film never finds it's footing or it This film is not interesting.
