I didn't thnk this movie was anything special or particularly original, but the cast is great and that helps a lot. I think my favorite part of the movie was the bit at the end while the closing credits are rolling.

betty white is the greatest

This was surprisingly hilarious. The plot was fabulous and was concise all the way through. Love the woods scene when theyre singing from the windows to the walls the sweat roll down my....too funny!! Love Betty White forever.

Better than Expected

I begrudgingly agreed to watch this movie, but was pleasantly surprised. Bullock and Reynolds make a great comedic couple, and Betty White does not disappoint. It didn't change my life, but there are a couple scenes worth watching when it plays on TV.


this movie was so funny. throughout the movie there were several laugh so hard you pee your pants moments. personally, i think this is sandra bullocks best.


i watched this with my friends and we all thought it was pretty good an ok movie pretty funny and then betty white comes on. and she is hilarious! we loved the movie because of her and "the baby maker"


It was OK. What the plot lacked was made up by the superb casting of Ryan Reynolds, Sandra Bullock, and Betty White.


LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie, watched it so many times!
Very realistic and humorous!

It is so funny!

The movie's scenery is so pretty. And the story it's lovely and very funny.

LOved it!



Hilariousssss!! I love this movie. One of the best parts is when Sandra joins Betty White in her indian dance.

Witty, a Little Weird but Worth Watching

I was concerned about whether or not this movie would work because - despite the fact that I am a staunch Sandra Bullock fan - I was concerned about the believability of a romance between Ryan Reynolds and Bullock due to the age difference between the two. Happily, I was wrong. Not only did she give a marvelous performance as the wicked witch of the business world, but the sparks flew as she and Ryan were thrown together in extremely difficult circumstances furthermore the dialogue was fast-paced, clever, and engaged the audience. AND you really accepted the fact that she was undergoing a personal transformation; perhaps it will turn out not to be a total transformation, but it will definitely be a warming up, a softening, and for that the audience is happy.

Oh, and Betty White, as the grandmother is a radiant, brilliant hoot!
