A woman announces to her husband that she is leaving him. He desperately needs help to try and win her back. He makes a new acquaintance at a bar, who fixes him up, and sets him out to conquer the opposite sex. The same acquaintance unknowingly begins a relationship with the man’s daughter.
Steve Carrell roles out of a moving car in the first 5 minutes. Ryan Gosling is pretty cool. The story is interesting, and the issues that arise are very easy to relate to. Men should see this movie; most of you will probably learn something. It would have been so much better if the pre-teen love story was left out completely; it will make you role your eyes. The ending is really bad, you could skip the last ten minutes.
Note: Kevin Bacon has less than 5 minutes of screen time in this movie, but you will love every second.
