Had been let down by Gervais' "Invention of Lying", but was very surprised by how much I enjoyed this; on a comedic level and on a deeper, more profound level as well.

The apartment, the air conditioner,

The Art is the work of:

So memorable, that I had forgotten that I had even seen it before. Oh well, it's an okay movie.

I thought this was a fun well put together movie. The storyline is fresh and interesting, the script is well written, and the acting is fantastic. This is a must for fans of Ricky Gervais as he does an excellent job as usual. I would recommend this to fans of darker romantic comedies.

Great premise and well executed. Ricky Gervais uses his dry British humour to great effect in the film and the overall message of kindness and humanity for others was a nice concept in a romantic comedy.

This was an absolutely wonderful movie. Excellent. It's rare I say that. Maybe I liked it so much because I wanted to like it because of the premise and the stars (Ricky Gervais and Greg Kinnear) and it actually didn't disappoint. Gervais' other film - The Invention of Lying while good WAS a bit of a disappointment - but this movie was positively great. The ending could of went two ways and took the safer one but it was still satisfying.

This movie is a refreshing change from the tired and true romantic comedy formula. Ricky Gervais is hysterical, and Tia Leone is charming. A great light comedy.

"We just get the one life, you know. Just one. You can't live someone else's or think it's more important just because it's more dramatic. What happens matters. May be only to us, but it matters. "
