Why not feel good?

I can only recommend this movie. It takes you through some pretty tough spots in a topsy-turvy relationship but it is all the closer-to-home for that.

I appreciate that the movie is about the male lead and don't expect much from the female lead. Though Ms Deschanel delivers, a quirky and nuanced true-to-life female that in the end is entirely redeemable in my view, even if she's not "the one." Ultimately you do believe in love again.

And have a few laughs along the way. What else could you want from a romantic comedy? Especially if you are a guy?
