+ Woody Harrelson steals the show in a supporting role, and Shaun White is a highlight with his cameo
+ Richard Jenkins has a small role that's surprisingly effective dramatically
- generic (the usual rom-com formula -- all lighthearted at first, then they fall in love, then they get in a fight, then they come back together, fin)
- while some of it works the majority of the comedy falls flat
it's a decent movie, nothing more nothing less. While their are some definite highlights like Woody Harrselson on the top of his game, some funny cameos and Richard Jenkins providing a real interesting character and a great performance the movie just never feels unique, fulfilling or truly entertaining. Unfortunately most of the comedy falls flat and even though the movie tries to make fun of romantic comedies, it then contradicts that by playing right into typical rom com cliches, but I guess that was supposed to be... part of the charm? They also loaded the movie with 'fucks', 'shits' and just about everything else so they were definitely shooting for the R rating... yet while the movie is about fuck buddies, there is absolutely no nudity besides a bunch of shots of Justin Timberlake.
