I went to see this movie expecting a chickflick comedy with nothing much to it besides laughs and a predictable storyline. Instead, I was pleasantly surprised by a thoughtful, and at times touching, movie that incorporates both tears and laughter (yes, you might reach for your tissues.)
This movie revolves around a plotline in which two people with opposite personalities become the legal guardians to their mutual friends' child. The two leads, Josh Duhamel and Katherine Heigl, both play their parts well, playing two characters so opposite from each other that your find it hard to believe that they are expected to live together to care for their friends' child. However, this challenge is one that they must overcome, a task filled with both struggles and moments of joy.
Along with the child and the house that the two leads inherit from their friends, they also inherit a neighborhood of wacky, yet hilarious, neighbors. Many of the laughs in this movie will come from the supporting cast.
Overall, this movie is will probably appeal mostly to women, but as "chick-flicks" go, it is grounded and "real" enough that it may appeal to a wider audience.
