Jenny Slate and Charlie Day deserve better than (this) leaden rom-com...

(It) coasts on the charms of it leads, and offers smiles instead of laughs, comfort instead of romance.

It’s a far better version of a romantic comedy than we’re used to streaming of late.

The film rarely strays from its genre’s conventions, and that’s not a complaint. Sometimes staying in one lane yields the most gratifying results.

Slate and Day provide enough underdog charisma to make us root for their characters, if not their wrongheaded quests.

The story is mediocre and formulaic, yes, but pleasantly so. And it shows not only ladies dealing in blubbering heartbreak, but guys going through it as well.
