I'd say rent the movie on a weeknight with nothing else to do...maybe it will provide you with a couple of hours of spacing out. But this was not what I'd hoped. There was no chemistry as far as my very advanced Romantic Comedy Radar could detect. In fact, within the first half hour, if nothing else, I was depressed.
Jennifer Aniston's character is difficult to describe owing to the crippling lack of depth given to her persona... it's actually very hard to recall a less exciting romantic lead in any film for a long time. Whether the script was inherently poor in this respect or she simply can't be bothered any more, it makes for painful watching.
Aaron Eckhart is a gifted actor that should have no problem finding roles, but as far as a lead, he's been slightly unlucky and needs to select projects a bit more carefully or risk being type-casted in that type of flicks much like his co-lead.
I especially recommend that anyone dealing with any real emotional trauma avoid this one. The cheap shots and ridiculously bland advice given will only make someone feel worse.
