    It’s facile to say the book is better, but the directing here is so limp the characters never have a chance to break out. Misses all of the humor with a dour tone that just didn’t play at all. 

    With these actors and this script it could have been really something special. It felt like they wanted it to feel real more than they wanted it to have feel.

    Ryan Renyolds has more charm than any human should be assigned.
