It seems that most women reviewers hate this film?
This movie is far from being anything great, but it has some fabulously quirky moments with an offbeat wit that will be surprisingly enjoyable for some., For others I suspect is going to be mildly gross, which is the only reason I can come up with as to why women often tend to hate this film (sometimes really HATE it). On the other hand, guys seem to find it humorously diverting. So when I say gross, I'm not talking about dirty jokes or lurid sexual content, no... but it has scenes where they objectively bring up bodily functions, a discussion on spit, stuff like that. Not extensively, but enough that it's going to be too much for some, and for those who thought they were perhaps going to find a harmless and cute Sarah Jessica Parker romantic comedy, it's going to be too offbeat and somewhat odd, even though it is at its core a romantic comedy.
I would also mention that many people aren't going to find the character of Joe to be an attractive lead male. Average looks aside, he is always wearing odd hats and clothing, and there are a couple of scenes where it plainly shows that his teeth are in dire need of whitening, especially being on camera. Oh, and I shouldn't forget to mention that Ben Stiller as artist Bwick Elias is humorously wacky as usual, but not what you would expect as a boyfriend for a young Sarah Jessica Parker who is cute as a button in this film. So it is these factors that probably don't go over well with the typical romantic comedy crowd.
As a movie, this is actually better for its parts than its whole. It is a silly premise that barely holds up as an excuse for a plot, but at the same time, this is not genuinely a plot driven movie. It's more like a month in the life of two people who are roommates and have known each other since college, and who are trying to find an excuse to push each other to find real relationships as they near their 30s (hence, the premise). If you are ok to take it on its own terms and aren't put off by its style of objective humor, its certainly watchable.
