I'm sad this film didn't get more attention than it did when released in the theaters. It's not a surprise, I suppose, given the awful the preview. I've read reviews by other viewers and am shocked to hear how much some people hated it. If this is the worst movie they've seen, they have very limited experience. Ever see War of the Worlds? Black Dahlia? How about Pearl Harbor? I gave Catch and Release four out of five stars because of the slight predictability, but otherwise, I found the story to be entertaining, the cinematography quite lovely, the soundtrack gorgeous, and Kevin Smith, Jennifer Garner, and Juliette Lewis very good in their parts. I was skeptical when I rented it, but enjoyed myself from the beginning to the roll of the credits. I like films with characters I feel I might actually KNOW in real life, can imagine them living next door to me. If you want a sympathetic movie experience about PEOPLE in the real world, forego Transformers this weekend and rent Catch and Release.

It is truly a shame that this movie didn't get more mainstream attention ... this was a great date movie ... the writers and producers allowed its story and characters to represent the sweetness, pain, innocence, hope and joy that are 'real-life' ... watching this movie you could relate to the characters and the story in a way that few movies allow. Welcome back Jen ... it's great to see you back!

I rented 3 movies this weekend and this was by far the worst one I seen. It was pointless and stupid. Don't waste your time!

I had high hopes when I saw previews for the movie. It definitely disappointed. The movie was entirely predictable - down to the last scene on the beach. So many of the scenes came out of nowhere... who buddies up to the woman that her fiance cheated with??? No self-respecting woman would do that. My friend and I were rooting for the roommate who pined for her... not the loser who screwed someone in a bathroom at his friends funeral... there were no redeeming qualities for him. When it became clear this is the loser she would wind up with (very early in the movie... predictable!), the movie lost all interest for me.

I went to go see this with a friend that wanted to see this movie. This movie is really good to go see with your friends. Kevin Smith did an amazing job in playing Sam. Also, Jennifer Gardner did a good job in her character. This is one movie that I cant wait to buy when it comes to DVD. This movie was worth going to go see.

I usually love Jens movies but this one blew. It tried too much too soon and didnt go deep enough at all. Each character was barely there and there were some ridiculous, unneeded subplots. It didnt work at all and none of the characters had enough chemistry. If you get a chance to see it at the dollar theater, go for it...but its worth no more than that.

I found this movie to be very enjoyable! All the characters were awesome. Jennifer is just a natural. And the men were hilarious (not to mention handsome). It was a clean, hilarious movie!

An enjoyable movie with a decidedly different twist. Part of the movie was a comedy, part was very touching. The unevenness of the reviews here probably have to do with the fact that is a very atypical romantic treatment. . . which deals with the genuine trials that accompany the death of a loved one. . . and the questions that inevitably come. Did I truly know this person at all? Since I have lost a loved one, I related to the questions and the feeling of disillusionment. If anything, the timing of the new romance-- coming so soon on the heels of losing someone she loved-- is a bit suspect. But since the time line is not specified, I could cut them some slack. Jennifer Garner is terrific. And the mens roles are far from stereotypical. I really enjoyed the movie and recommend it.

Three of us saw this last evening, and while there are some slow parts, its a good Chick flick. The guy with the beard (dont know his name) made the show - he was extremely funny and made the movie that much better. Jennifer Garner did well but shes much better at comedy than all the crying in this movie she did! All in all, it was an ok movie and worth the 10 to see it in theatre.

I knew it was a chick flick, but managed to talk my husband into going based on the trailer. Big mistake on my part. Some of what I saw in the trailer wasnt even in the movie and what was there was pretty lame. The story was unbelieveable, the acting was bad, and it couldnt even keep the interest of the three 12 year old girls sitting behind us. I wont get him to go to another chick flick for quite a while. Not even a good rental in my opinion.

This movie was great! Jennifer Garner did look a little plain, but Timothy Olyphant is to die for! The movie is not like any other, but that does not make it bad. It is a different kind of romantic comedy, but the romance and the comedy are definitely there. I could not stop laughing in some parts, and in the other I simply wanted to switch places with Jennifer so I could be kissing Timothy. I would definitely recommend it, but go with an open mind.

OMG, where to begin? Jennifer Garner first of all cannot carry a movie, it was just plain awful from beginning to end. Poorly written, boring, sloooooow, not even worth a rental. If I could give it less than 1 star I would. Maybe just the point off one star if that tells you anything.
