What is it about?

Who’s in it?
Ryan Reynolds, Abigail Breslin, Isla Fischer, Rachel Weisz and Elizabeth Banks.
Why should I watch it?
+ Ryan Reynolds plays a man-child really well
+ Abigail Breslin was adorable and charming
+ Great father and daughter chemistry
+ All three love interests were likeable (If you don’t like 1, there’s 2 more to choose from)*
+ Has heart and laughs
+ Had no idea who the mother would end up being
+ Ups and downs, and in and outs of relationships
+ School sex ed scene
Why shouldn’t I watch it?
– If you really hate politics
– If you didn’t marry ‘the one’
– *Kinda cheats by giving you three love interest
It’s basically 9 season of How I Met Your Mother condensed into 1 hour and 52 minutes, with a lot less ducky ties and slap bets. Just goes to show how important timing is and how timing can turn ‘the one’ into ‘the one that got away’.
