Movie Review by Zara
August 4th, 2008

This is a strange little movie that wants to be one of those transitional life change comedies and misses the mark. The kid in the movie who is supposed to enrich the life of the downtrodden Bill is more creepy than anything else, some of the better side actors (Timothy Olephant as the news reporter and Kristen Wiig as the donut shop pioneer) are relegated to mini-roles as if they're bits of food for someone on a diet and Aaron Eckhart tries far too hard to look shlubby and only pulls off a bloated belly.

Gratefully, there are a couple of things that make this movie slightly less painful. The first is the fact that Jessica Alba's character is also limited and she's not nearly as annoying as she can be in film. The second is getting a chance to see the gorgeous Elizabeth Banks literally radiate off the screen, especially in scenes where she's stripped down to her underwear.

But the story line of Bill wanting to get his estranged wife (Banks) back even though she's cheated on him with the news reporter, all while wanting to desperately open a donut franchise that he ditches at the last minute... well, it's sucky.
