the cheating cheaters cheated - again
the characters are fumbling through their lives - always looking for that next spark, but always tired and late for work.
a very ironic movie - highly rated by critics - less than liked by many viewers
at Roger Ebert, Glenn Kenny said:
"The movie’s frankness about the physicality of adultery in late middle age will be much commented on, I suppose, but part of the point Jacobs seems to be making is that such things aren’t worth making a big deal over."

Absolutely awful. Storyline is very shallow and actors/actresses are dreadful. Sure not a comedy. DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME

I wish I would have read all of these comments before bringing this movie home as they all very accurate! I was expecting so much more from this film and was very disappointed. I didn't even finish watching it, that's how bad it was.

I have to agree with all the previous comments. I've watched 30 minutes and I'm giving up. Really didn't like the sound-track either.

Wasted 30 mins watching this movie. Who at the library decided to purchase this movie; it was so awful.

Really boring and a complete waste of time. Quality of acting was awful.

Yeah, this was terrible. Painfully slow with unsympathetic characters, there is nothing that will draw you in. And by "slow," I mean, "any slower and it would be playing in reverse." Very few things happen in this movie, and the few things that DO happen you won't care about.

Really did not like this movie. It is described as a romantic comedy. Sadly, I found nothing romantic or comedic about it. The main characters lie to each other, their lovers, and their work. Maybe that passes as comedy, but I couldn't relate. I do not recommend this one!
