John Krasinski (The Office) and Maya Rudolph (Saturday Night Live) star in the heartfelt film that explores the comedic twists and turns in one couple's journey across contemporary America.

Featuring a remarkable soundtrack and an incredible ensemble cast – including Jeff Daniels, Allison Janney, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Catherine O’Hara and Jim Gaffigan.

    Its a movie about real love and real life and real problems. It was well acted and it had a great soundtrack. It's quite simply an enjoyable and in the end, a happy movie about a couple who made it in love.
  • Beautiful

    By Dunnigan
    Simple story, done brilliantly. I didn’t know it was a Sam Mendes movie, but the end was unexpectantly powerful, and I wasn’t surprised to see his name at the end. Very well done. The acting is suburb. A very touching movie.
  • a lovely lovely love story… completely worth it.

    i don't write reviews, but… this is an amazing story, and deserves a review. the supporting roles are ALL exceptional, and John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph prove that they don't just straight comedy. this is very sincere, very sweet, and really funny. if you have any doubts, give it a shot. it's worth the rental.

  • I love this movie!

    By EllaFitzgerald
    This movie is simultaneously hilarious and moving. I both laughed out loud and cried during the film. It's all around fun and heartwarming, similar to the way Little Miss Sunshine is. If you liked LMS, you'll love this movie as well. John Krasinski, Maya Rudolph, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and Allison Janey offer incredible performances! :)

    Maya Rudolph is the sole reason to watch this insufferable big screen sit com. She is so sweet and honest in comparison to the cast of cliche characters around her. I like John Kasinski on The Office but his character is thn and one dimensional. The worst is Maggie Gyllenhaal who is some sort of Earth Mother from Hell who has a pychotic episode of a stroller. I hope that Maya Rudoph is given better films to appear in. I think she can be a potentially strong actress if given the right role and film. Perhaps husband P.T. Anderson should try employing her in his own films to showcase he talents beyond her comedic skills.
  • Love and Understanding

    Fabulous movie about a couple who get and support each other. They go on a journey together and are there for each other. Music is excellent.
  • The Relationship I Hope to Have!

    By LPB143
    The chemistry between the two was amazing. I loved Krasinski's character and how well he treated his girlfriend. His character was so likeable, sweet, and dorky. This movie is well worth the money I am so glad i saw this.
