I knew nothing about this film, only that it starred Tina Fey whom I love, but it turned out to be a wonderful surprise - an absolute gem from start to finish, with flawless performances from all the actors involved. Funny - and moving in parts, particularly the scenes with Portia's mother (an excellently, prickly portrayal by Lily Tomlin.) It didn't go in the obvious directions in could have done, but took some surprising twists and turns I found immensely satisfying, and the story ended on a nicely upbeat note. The mark of a good film is whether or not I care about what happens to the characters and I really did. Good writing, good acting, good story.
