[during his job interview]
I'm a people person, very personable. I absolutely insist on enjoying life. Not so task-oriented. Not a work horse. If you're looking for a Clydesdale I'm probably not your man. Like I don't live to work, it's more the other way around. I work to live. Incidentally, what's your policy on Columbus Day?
Really? The guy discovered the new world. I'm afraid to even ask about Victory Over Japan Day.

First of all, let me start off by saying I am a big fan of Owen Wilson. That said, I am no longer a fan. This movie was so painful to watch my date fell asleep in it, i fell asleep in it, most of the theatre was restless and laughter was non existent.
The storyline.. well, id bag it out, but there is none. It is the worst conceived piece of tripe i have ever watched. Michael Douglas was totally useless in this movie and Kate Hudson was just there for eye candy. Her lines were lame and didn't consist of anything more than "oh" "no" and "come on" ****Spoilers so please beware**** What was the deal with not seeing Mandie in this film or Anna? Seriously? This movie was great for starting conversation on the way home between my date and I as we quickly and easily dissected this piece of garbage someone called a film. This has indeed prompted me to get out the old camcorder and make my own film. It may suck, but at least I wont rip $15 out of your pocket to see it.
