This is another one whose title makes it a little hard to search for, but I didn't see any discussion of it. I watched it last night and had a lot of good laughs. It's in one way a standard boy meets girl three act where everyone lives happily ever after. But, as with something like Friends with Benefits, the humor is so good that you don't really care that the story line is completely standard stuff. Though, this one is a more earthy version of that I guess, since these are somewhat more cynical, artsy/intellectual types.
It stars Famke Janssen (a favorite of mine) and John Favreau. She's a copy writer for a women's magazine and he's an artist. It's basically just the usual story of their trials and tribulations trying to be a couple. It's really all about their chemistry because they work really well together and the jokes are pretty non-stop and they are about things that probably most real couples will be able to very easily relate to, not that I'd know anything about that.
Anyway, it's very well done, and would make a great date movie, or just something to watch alone, for men or women I would think. I got more than a baker's dozen really good laughs out of it myself.
