Along Came Polly - 3

This film is too hyperbolic to be good. The film exaggerates the difference between those that over plan life, and those that cannot commit to anything. Reuben (Ben Stiller) is a risk assessment analyst who discovers his wife is cheating on him- on their honeymoon! Polly (Jennifer Aniston) is a waitress who doesn't plan anything out and lives day to day. This film has no surprises and it all works out with very disjointed events. Some of the best scenes are when the film gets serious when Reuben's wife (Debra Messing) returns, or when his friend Sandy (played hilariously by Philip Seymour Hoffman) is awkwardly trying to be helpful. Overall a badly made romantic comedy.
