Our Score
An all-star cast, including Jennifer Aniston and Scarlett Johansson, talks relationships in this Sex and the City-inspired comedy. Oddly though, it's the less well-known Ginnifer Goodwin who stands out here as the outgoing but lonely Gigi. Her quest to discover why she never gets a second date leads to bartender Alex (Justin Long), whose blunt assessment of the situation - neatly encapsulated in the movie's title - only serves to convince her that he is "the one". Their dynamic provides the real intrigue here, as everyone else in Baltimore seems to be overwhelmed by banalities. So, Aniston wants commitment from long-time boyfriend Ben Affleck, Johansson seduces a married man (Bradley Cooper), and Jennifer Connelly is the wife who takes him for granted. Drew Barrymore ups the kooky quotient as a hapless online dater, but with too few funny moments, there's an awful lot riding on the charms of the attractive cast.

Summary

Various Baltimore residents contend with romantic difficulties and misunderstandings. Unlucky-in-love Gigi seeks advice from a cynical yet kindly bartender, while her co-worker is unaware her husband is having an affair. Romantic comedy, starring Ginnifer Goodwin, Justin Long, Jennifer Connelly, Scarlett Johansson, Bradley Cooper, Ben Affleck, Jennifer Aniston, Kevin Connolly and Drew Barrymore.
