This movie fits the mold of a romantic comedy perfectly. Stiller does well and has some hilarious moments. Jennifer Anniston supports his purpose and does well on her own, also.

For me, the standout role was played by Phillip Seymour Hoffman. From the equivocal sex and relationship advice he gives to Stiller's character - to his commentary on the basketball court (screaming out "Let It Rain", "Iceman" and "Raindrops" while his gut comes flying out of his shirt, for example), he is hilarious. Hoffman also gets to speak the most memorable line of the movie when he tells Stiller's character that he just sharted and that it is indeed time to leave the party.

I recommend this movie if you're a fan of most Ben Stiller movies. It's a movie that will remind you of a dozen other romantic comedies, but it is worth the viewing.

If one is a fan of Ben Siller and one enjoyed him in the films, "Zoolander", "Meet the Parents" and "Something About Mary", then one will enjoy this light, fun filled comedy that does not take itself too seriously. It revolves around insurance risk-assessment analyst, Reuben Feffer (Ben Siller), who marries the woman of his dreams, Lisa Kramer (Debra Messing), only to lose her on their honeymoon, when she betrays him with the very buff Claude (Hank Azaria), the scuba diving instructor with a seriously deranged French accent.
Returning home from the honeymoon, alone and forlorn, he runs into an old childhood friend of his, Polly Prince (Jennifer Aniston), who has gone from being a math geek to being a totally free spirit. They begin dating, even though they appear to be total opposites. Let the games begin! There are a lot of jokes in the film, often scatological, and sight gags. The path of true love certainly does not seem to run smoothly when one is plagued with irritable bowel syndrome and one's girl-friend is fond of hot, spicy food.
Ben Siller is funny in a hapless, hang dog sort of way. Phillip Seymour Hoffman, as his best friend, Sandy Lyle, also adds to the humor, lowbrow though it be. Hank Azaria is very buff and over the top in the role of the sexy, scuba diving Frenchman, Claude, with the laughable accent. Jennifer Aniston is a terrific in the role of Polly, a total natural, playing it straight and always charming. The rest of the stellar supporting cast, Alec Baldwin, Debra Messing, Bryan Brown, Michelle Lee, and Bob Dishy, all contribute to the success of this comedic effort by writer-director Jerry Hamburg.

I caught this film while channel surfing after I'd finished "My Super Ex-Girlfriend" on Pay Per View. After watching a few minutes I thought, these are the same characters.

If Uma Thurman's G-girl didn't have any powers in "Ex-Girlfriend" she'd be a lot like Jennifer Aniston's ferret-loving Polly Prince. Ben Stiller plays a risk assessor for an insurance agency who's just as dorky and introverted as Luke Wilson's "Super Ex" architect. And instead of Rainn Wilson ("The Office") as the boorish best friend dishing out bad relationship advice, "Polly" has Philip Seymore Hoffman ("Capote") as a washed-up child-star slob, egging Stiller to slap Aniston's rear during sex and ask "Who's your daddy?" It's this exchange that sets up the film's conflict: Aniston, repulsed by the comment, boots him out of her apartment. Stiller then has to learn to see Polly through his own eyes and prove his love before he loses her in the third act.

"Along Came Polly" is as safe, generic and cut-and-paste as a romantic comedy can be. Surprising, since director/screenwriter John Hamburg provided plenty of laughs in "Meet the Parents," and "Zoolander" was at least somewhat original, if a little stinky. That's not to say "Polly" isn't beyond repair: there are several amusing sight gags involving Aniston's blind ferret and Stiller's indigestion; Aniston and her salsa instructor give Stiller several opportunities to make light of his inadequacies (something he's a master at). Bryan Brown ("FX") is entertaining as Stiller's potential insuree, an Austrailian millionaire who also happens to be an extreme sports enthusiast. And Hoffman gave me a lot of laughs when he tried to be the lead instead of Judas in the Hell's Kitchen community theater version of "Jesus Christ Superstar."

So, "Along Came Polly" is worth a shot if you catch it on TV, but ultimately forgettable. Actually, the soundtrack is better than the movie, though it's still nothing to swoon over.

This film had a certain humanity which surprised me. The script was a bit tired, and it is consistently amusing without ever verging on hilarious, but all of the characters (especially a mad Austrailian hedonist businessman) are somehow more relatable than your average romantic comedy cast. It may have something to do with the way that the characters in, say, American Pie or There's Something About Mary suffer so horribly, often because of their own stupidity - which there is some of in this movie, but on the whole they seem more like real people. That is not the stuff of first-class comedy, and Along Came Polly never approaches the class of American Pie or There's Something, but it does have a certain redeeming value because of this that makes it watchable. Never has Ben Stiller's usual hapless character actually seemed so pitiable.
