What a disappointment. I laughed precisely three times. If you don't pay attention to the words, the dialogue might actually sound witty and entertaining. This is a testament to Clooney, Zellweger, and Krasinsky because if you happen to pay attention to what they are saying, you'd realize that the dialogue isn't witty at all. In fact, some of it doesn't even make any sense.
This movie is all over the place. Sometimes it's overly dramatic, sometimes it's cartoonish. It is very rarely funny and it's certainly not a "screwball" comedy. There was one "screwball-y" scene that could have been saved for a live action Looney Tunes movie starring George Clooney as Bugs Bunny. If they had advertised this movie as a light drama, and most of the attempts at witty banter had been removed from the screenplay, I might... might have given it a good review. Unfortunately they didn't and it wasn't... so I couldn't.
