When Joel (Paul Rudd) and Molly (Amy Poehler) meet, it's hate at first sight: his big Corporate Candy Company threatens to shut down her quirky indie candy shop. Plus, Joel is hung up on his sexy ex (Cobie Smulders). But amazingly, they fall in love, until they break up about two thirds of the way through, and Molly starts dating her accountant (Ed Helms). But then right at the end...well you'll just have to see. (Hint: Joel makes a big speech and they get back together.)

It is an hilarious, silly, smart, knowing parody… full of so many telling details and throw-aways that it's almost an embarrassment of riches. And - like the best of true parody - it's obviously made by talented folks who know and harbor at least some affection for (perhaps against their better judgement) the obvious cliches - and slightly more intricate tropes - of the genre they're sending up.
Whether we like it or not, many of us have incorporated Nora Ephron & Rob Reiner's romcom sensibilities setting the standard for a certain sort of demographic (this one most notably follows You've Got Mail, but makes references to others every ten seconds)… actually, almost any movie with any sort of 'romance' ever set & filmed in Manhattan… I could go on… into our movie vernacular, and this one speaks to all of it in its own borrowed terms that missed nothing. The soundtrack, the camera shots and angles, the performances, the stock set of best friends and relatives, the settings, the cutaways, the UWS, the plot arc… and, Oh my God, the dialogue & script… a lot of affection and attention went into this film, and elevate it beyond a long sketch into more than a spoof.
Just as I did with Airplane!, I will definitely look forward to viewing this again because I want to catch everything that may have been too fast the first time - and because it's made by my kind of knowledgable film geek with a similar sense of humor and irreverent reverence.
