Witty and Clever
Great characterizations by actors who clearly play ensemble well. Not only the leads but the supporting players are well-fleshed out and thoughtfully integrated into the storyline (unlike, for example, extras playing space fillers). There are archetypes - especially the needy momentary girlfriend - but archetypes are based on truth, and a needy, strangling semi-significant other is not a rare occurrence (unfortunately - yeah, I've been there, seen that). The self-centered buddy whose world view consists of the universe rotating around his ass is also not a big stretch - neither is his coming through in a pinch. The plot lines are clever and realistic. The humor that suffuses this movie is genuinely funny and uncontrived. I recommend highly!
