    Jane Fonda (yay) and Jennifer Lopez (nay) are in this film. I saw it over the weekend.

    It's not appallingly bad as Michael Vartan is really good looking and it was nice to see Jane Fonda back on screen (even in a light film like this).

    Jennifer Lopez doesn't really suit romantic comedies - her character in this is a carbon copy of the roles she played in Wedding Planner and Maid In Manhattan.

    I'd give it a 6 out 10.

    I watched it last night again on DVD. It wasn't as funny as when I saw it in the cinema. One thing that irritated me was Jane Fonda seemed to spend most of the time putting on and taking off her glasses

    I'd hate to go to the cinema in the US.

    In Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Robert Downey Jr. narrating makes a plea for Times Square audiences to shut up :D

    this is on the tv. i believe this will take the tally of the times i've seen it up to 5-6.

    I actually think this is quite good, I've seen it half a dozen times, it's always on TV.
