I shouldn't like this film as much as I do, in fact I felt quite embarrassed that I did when I walked out of it. Similarly, I felt the same about Mark Waters' Mean Girls in 2004. Yes I ventured into that only because I had a hard-on for Lacey Chabert, but I was treated to an actual good satire of high school. No one will mistake Waters for Kurosawa mind you, but the guy has some magical touch when it comes to making what should be fluff likable. Yes folks, IÃ¢â¬â¢m here to say that despite the trailers, TV spots and promotion, a Matthew McConaughey romantic comedy is an actual, honest good film.
