Product Description

Opposites are forced to attract in Along Came Polly, a dose of featherweight fluff that could've been better and could've been worse--surely no pairing of Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston can be a complete waste of time, right? Faint praise indeed, but fans of these mainstream funny-folk will enjoy this movie as a lazy-weekend distraction. Ben's a newlywed insurance risk-assessment analyst whose wife (Debra Messing, in a throwaway role) betrays him on their honeymoon. His uptight, play-it-safe lifestyle (which includes acute aversion to germs and irritable bowel syndrome) makes him seemingly incompatible with the spontaneous, free-spirited Polly (Aniston), but writer-director John Hamburg (whose writing credits include the previous Stiller hits Meet the Parents and Zoolander) is determined to give them at least the appearance of romantic potential. No such luck. You will, however, get a few laughs from supporting players Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bryan Brown, and Alec Baldwin. --Jeff Shannon

2.0 out of 5 stars There's Something About Ben Stiller... July 14 2004
Format:DVD
Witness ALONG CAME POLLY (1994), a cute comedy surrounded by scatology.
It's too bad. This is a movie that could have been very good, if not for the desperate plot manipulations, fart jokes, poo jokes, pee jokes and other things that detracted from my enjoyment of what should have been a pleasant "opposites-attract" screwball comedy. But because of the above annoyances, we're left with a hit-and-miss PG-13 version of THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY (which I saw just once, several years ago, and really didn't think all that much of it). You know that it's not coincidental that Ben Stiller, the star of that seminal (ouch, maybe I shouldn't have said that) 1998 gross-out comedy, also stars in this film. Why does he always seem to be attracted to projects like this? Probably to maintain his status as Gross-Out Movie King, I guess.
Oh well, in ALONG CAME POLLY, Stiller plays yet another disarming, pathetic yuppie with a weird name. Reuben Feffer marries the Jewish woman of his dreams, Linda Kramer (a throwaway Debra Messing), yet she throws herself at the hunky nudist scuba-diving instructor Claude (Hank Azaria, probably up to his one-hundredth foreign accent by now) on *the first night of their honeymoon*! Catching them en flagrante delicto (boy, I've always wanted to use this delicious Latin term in a movie review!), Reuben's carefully-laid plans (okay, I've gotta stop using expressions like these now) suddenly blow up in his face. Dejected and angry, he comes home alone wondering, how the h*ll could this have happened? You see, good ol' Reubie's a risk analyst for an insurance company, and lives his life purely according to careful and extensive analysis of the risks involved.

3.0 out of 5 stars The cast is what makes it work July 14 2004
By Jim
Format:DVD
Along Came Polly does seem like a rip-off to other Ben Stiller movies such as (Meet the Parents and There's Something About Mary). For instance Ben's character isn't honest and lies about things to try and please Polly. Sorta like he lied about things to try and please his father in law to be in Meet the Parents. In There's Something About Mary the dog kept getting hurt and in this it's a ferret that does instead. Plus Stiller humiliates himself on his first date with Polly just like he did with Mary on there for first date. His character is afraid of getting germs just like Bill Murry's character in What About Bob as well. So not much is original but still the actors do manage to get lots of laughs from the un-original material.
Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston don't have that much chemestry but they still are charming in their roles. Everybody says that the supporting characters are what make the movie but I think the whole cast is good. Hank Azeria "I didn't spell it right lol" is funny as a scuba instructor who steals Stiller's wife. Philip Seymour Hoffman who's great in everything "except Twister" steals the show in all his scenes as a has been movie star. Bryan Brown (Cocktail, F/X) is a riot too as a dare devil. Alec Baldwin is funny too as Stiller's boss. So basically I think everyone did fine jobs and that the movie is worth checking out for the cast. Okay you may have seen a lot of it before but you will still laugh.

5.0 out of 5 stars One word to describe this movie: GREAT July 14 2004
By Tom
Format:DVD
I loved this movie and I thought it would be a flop. I watched this movie about 10 times and I know anybody will love this movie (except for dumb critics). This movie is really good and I would tell anyone to see this movie. I love this movie as much as Starsky and Hutch and Phillip Seymour Hoffman is so funny in this movie and he always is in drama movies. The jokes are great, the movie is great, the cast is great, etc. Ben Stiller does it again and does it great. This is just a feel-good movie that makes you laugh. I guarntee you'll love this movie and laugh so hard during the movie. Listen to me: DO NOT listen to the dumb critics who say this is a bad movie, I know the critcs who say it was bad had a good time, they don't want to say that a movie with Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston is good (critics are weird). When I lended my copy of the DVD, I was going mad without it because I wanted to watch it again. Everyone I know loved the movie and I know you will too. Look, I thought it was going to be stupid too but I love this movie still after I saw it over 10 times. Listen to me: SEE THIS MOVIE and thank me later.

2.0 out of 5 stars Utterly disappointed..... July 13 2004
Format:DVD
Man, what a let down movie. I really expected it to be a comedy landmark. With two lead actors such as Stiller and Aniston and an interesting plot idea, one would think this would be a blockbuster hit comedy.
No. Much on the contrary. The movie is contrieved. Also, it's so short (83 minutes), that it's clear that everybody involved simply did not know what to do with the material on hands, so they tought "let's finish it as soon as possible"!
I can imagine Aniston holding his laugh in the scene in the boat featuring the list from the "Riskmaster", a textbook copy from FRIENDS second season episode "The One With The List". Also, I'd like to know how a single woman living on waitress wages can travel around the country (or around the whole world, according to the movie) so easily...Maybe the movie did not show it, but their parents give her some money...
The movie is not a complete waste, because the people on the project are seasoned professionals. Hank Azaria gives a funny performance, the same holding valid for Alec Baldwin. You'll not feel that you're watching a turkey. You'll even have a silly smile on your lips sometimes. But this is not a great movie at all.
