Now problems do arise, especially with the finale, which dives into a predictable and very sappy area. The film also does feel a bit contrived at times and you’ll find youself in familiar territory on more than a few instances. And it’s a shame, because for a while it seems like the film is going to sidestep those issues that plauge most romantic comedies. For a while it feels fresh and new. But by the end, we’ve entered cliche city and it does hurts the film. Lastly, Emma’s character is a bit underdeveloped, which is in no part Portman’s fault, rather its due to some weak scripting in that regard.
