Misguided and forced attempt at middle age romantic comedy/meet cute film that finds Vera Farmiga (quite good) and Andy Garcia thrown together and discovering just how unhappy they are in their individual marriages. Everything about this film feels forced and manipulative from the misconstrued whimsy to the lack of chemistry between leads. There are very few authentic moments anywhere in the film.In short: feckless.
The intention is there and so are the extensive references to the screwball comedy era (in particular 'Bringing Up Baby' and its charming duo). Unfortunately, this film fails to be both funny and romantic. The shift in tone that happens midway seems incomprehensibly misplaced but it does improve the pace and the interest in the narrative. Andy Garcia is hugely miscast here.
