Not a romantic comedy
This is hardly a romantic comedy. The comedic part is simply not there - no witty lines, funny subplots, or even any physical comedy. Yes there is the romance - a love triangle. The trouble is, we only root for Dan (the husband) and not for Saz. The main trait of her character is her narcissistic ways. She is flighty, confused, and indecisive. She treated Dan like dirt and blamed their problems on him. Example: she made out with Alex, and eventually slept with him; but when she came back to the house and found another woman in the house with Dan ( all was innocent: she was a coworker staying over for a day), Saz flipped out on them, threw things and walked out. Talk about throwing stone in a glass house. Yes, we all knew that she would get back with Dan in the end, but the whole time I found myself hoping Dan will find someone else, because Saz just does not deserve him. The storyline is pretty straightforward without much texture or subplots. So, the audience is left with watching the movie amble toward the inevitable and undesirable conclusion (that is, Dan took Saz back). I elected to try this movie because I like romantic comedy, and found a movie that's not funny at all, with a romance that I cannot buy into. The only positive I can say is that Michelle Ryan is a looker. Too bad she was cast into such a bad character.
