    Went to this tonight, partly under duress.
    Was actually quite surprised by it. Quite an entertaining couple of hours. Yes, it's just a rom-com essentially but they all seem to have such fun doing it.
    Crikey, but Charlize Theron is a good looking gal and she has some serious comic timing.

    I would go see it again as the script has too many jokes to get first time round.

    I thought it was shíte myself as did the 10 or so other people in the screening. I didn't hear anyone laughing at any point. Just another boring & unfunny Seth Rogen comedy.

    Different strokes I'm sure. The almost full cinema I attended liked it. The joys of cheap Wednesday.

    Seth Rogen once again nails his Seth Rogen impression. Film is very funny and Theron and Rogen play off one another very well. I enjoyed it :)

    Saw this last week and loved it, admittedly I'm a big Rogen fan but so maybe a tad bias but thought it was really funny. Charlize Theron was great in it. Few scenes really made me laugh. Thought O'Shea Jackson Jr was great too. Definitely looking forward to giving this a rewatch.

    Haven't seen it and probably won't, as my trips to the cinema are limited. But I have to say the advertising campaign is appalling. Neither the posters or radio adverts give any indication what it's about, or that there's anything funny in it. It sems to rely purely on a few stock quotes from reviews and the pulling power of the two leads, and Rogen got old a long time ago.

    Might track it down in future though, since folk here like it.

    Theron and Rogen have good chemistry

    Saw this at the weekend and was pleasantly surprised. Really sharp one liners, Likeable characters and some genuine chemistry between Rogan and Theron. A film that just leaves you with a nice feeling, which is actually pretty rare.
