Writer Ratings:

Watch this if you liked: "All About Steve”

• Some of the songs and sound effects that you hear during certain segments are just weird and doesn't suit that particular scene.

• However the camera angles are creatively shot particularly for a romantic comedy film. That definitely helped certain scenes seem less boring.

• Considering the film started its production in 2008, got completed in 2010 and is finally released in 2015, the film noticeably tries to salvage its failed attempts at quirkiness and the mismatched pairing of Jake Gyllenhaal and Jessica Biel.


• The production of the movie was troubled from the start due to financial difficulties leading to director David O. Russell bailing on the project before it was even completed. The film was released on video on demand in North America.
