How Do You Know

A big broad comedy that doesn't work, at least not for me. (Charlene was swayed slightly by Paul Rudd's adorableness but she's been working really hard lately and I think her defenses were down). James L. Brooks has been making pretty mediocre movies for a while now but the man does have a good track record. I love Broadcast News and Taxi might be my all time favorite sitcom. But this one didn't cut it. Not real enough, not funny enough, and with strangely clunky dialogue. Reese Witherspoon, Paul Rudd, and Owen Wilson all worked extra hard to make it work, and they were decent, but the script wasn't. Hey Jack Nicholson, if you're not going to make an effort then don't accept the job. That's all I'm saying.
