Torture to Watch
Verified purchase
There is nothing cute about the bickering among adults and their little monsters that need care and attention. I couldn't make it through 10 minutes of the movie. The people who love this must live on another planet. Why would Clooney and Pfeifer ever agree to such an inane script? I initially thought this would be different from the usual Hollywood crap because at least it is set and at least partially filmed in New York. Unfortunately, all I could glean was a sense of claustrophobia from the crammed little sets of two stereotyped NY apartments. This movie was bound to have one cliche after another including poor grammar.

it's not romantic and it is not even funny

The first few minutes in, I thought, ok...I am sure, the characters will slow down and mature - they did not. It was a lot of bickering and trying to top each with smart talking. When the main (male) character said: "I've met someone..." I finally turned it off. Two single parents, who have high maintenance jobs and little time for their children are just rushing from appointment to appointment and out of the blue all of a sudden on the go feelings have developed - except for, they have not, at least you could not feel only knew it had to happen because it is a so-called romantic comedy - and in romantic comedies there is always a happy end no matter the dysfunctions that are so obvious.
My favorite character was probably the cat....and the children did a fine job too. But that was it. It is not the actors' fault...the story was just weird, hectic and chaotic.

One rough and tumble fine day.
Verified purchase
this movie won awards, not big ones mind you, but still, performances were recognized and the final song, too. As I watched this, I didn't know how they all could keep running so much. Those kids especially, there was so much running! They were great, amazing how they grounded the adults. Both and kids didn't like one another and then the adults didn't, but thrown together they were, all day. Clooney and Pfeifer were fun as they met with all their projections and hackles up, and how they wore down as the day went on with mishaps, and trying so hard to keep their jobs, getting good things done. I didn't realize the little girl was Mae Whitman until I looked the filmography up. She has had some career so far! Loved her in "Parenthood." Single/divorced parenting is so challenging, working the kind of stressful deadline oriented jobs in NYC with all the noise, crowds and weather, the whole film carried the high stress of trying to keep up with "all the balls in the air." That the characters both love their kids showed each of them who they were beyond all the fire of the clashes they had throughout. They were very new york-ish with the up front no-nonsense tell-it-like-I-see it confrontative communications. IF you don't get that about the characters, you probably won't like this one much. It's not all sweet cotton-candy. It's a rough and tumble fine day.

....this is just too cute!!!
Verified purchase
In typical George Clooney fashion... he'll keep you laughing and guessing, And Michelle P. is just so cute in this movie... she'll keep you watching. The two kids do a wonderful job as the children who keep the action going and also make you laugh. This is a great date night chick flick. At 68, I really enjoyed all of the antics. Give this a watch!!!

Chill and enjoy the ride!

This is a beautiful romcom that surprises in many ways. All the negative reviews are undeserved. When I first watched it, I didn't care for it either, but then, I was curious to see some scenes again and then again, and some more, and then I realized it was not the film I disliked, but the fact that it did not fit my expectations. However, watching it with an open mind, relaxed, one finds plenty to enjoy. The script, characters and their arcs, dialogues, everything is very smart and highly enjoyable.
This film is a perfect "10" and I don't even like romantic comedies!

Simple, fun, enjoyable romantic movie
Verified purchase
🥰I have watched this simple romantic movie many times throughout the years with my 24yr old daughter. No it didn’t win oscars for performances but I think it was lovely and fun. The predicaments the characters got into with their kids and each other were funny. They underestimated each other’s lifestyles and parenthood but by the end of the crazy, “fine” day they share they find they are in love. Loved all the actors, including the cute kids.

Too much rushing, stress and insults
Verified purchase
This movie was full of stress, arguments and problems. Not my idea of fun entertainment. Unless you're in a bad mood, I wouldn't watch this movie.

A Nice Rom-Com
Verified purchase
...not a bad "rom-com" as I recall. It was nice to see Michelle Pfeiffer and George Clooney paired together, in this NYC-set story. This movie's title was the answer in LA Times' Crossword puzzle, which led me and my family to watch it.
