The purpose of our double date? His & hers movies. The boys went off to see Thor (which, fyi, was apparently a let-down) while we went into SOBO. The movie we'd been waiting two years to watch!
Verdict? I cannot give a one dimensional answer. It's not a light, romantic comedy. Although John Krasinski (aka Jim, from the Office) is hilarious and was fully capable of providing much needed comedic relief. However, it's such a gray area (best friend sleeps with best friend's fiance)- you're torn!
Do you feel sympathy for the cheats? Do you feel sorry for the bitchy best friend? Do you want a happy ending? Do you want them to be found out? Ah! I was pulled back and forth in absolute emotional agony.
I think that if you have read the book, watching the movie is a great continuation. But, if you haven't, it may seem a bit far-fetched, and well, silly. So, my recommendation? Read the book. Watch the movie. You won't be sorry!
PS: I would like a reason to glam up a la Salma. Those waves. The dress. The ruby lips. Gorgeous.
