From Amazon.co.uk

Opposites are forced to attract in Along Came Polly. Ben Stiller is a newlywed insurance risk-assessment analyst whose wife (Debra Messing, in a throwaway role) betrays him on their honeymoon. His uptight, play-it-safe lifestyle (which includes acute aversion to germs and irritable bowel syndrome) makes him seemingly incompatible with the spontaneous, free-spirited Polly (Jennifer Aniston), but writer-director John Hamburg (whose writing credits include the previous Stiller hits Meet the Parents and Zoolander) is determined to give them at least the appearance of romantic potential. No such luck. You will, however, get a few laughs from supporting players Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bryan Brown, and Alec Baldwin. The film is a dose of featherweight fluff that could've been better and could've been worse--surely no pairing of Stiller and Aniston can be a complete waste of time, right? Faint praise, perhaps, but fans of these mainstream funny-folk will enjoy this movie as a lazy weekend distraction. --Jeff Shannon

SAFE READING - NO SPOILERS

John Hamburg wrote and directed this film with Ben Stiller, Jennifer Aniston, Debra Messing, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Alec Baldwin - a great cast who play their parts convincingly.

I am not going to write much more as, without giving the story away, there is not much mroe to write. It is no classic but it is enjoyable and, for Stiller and Aniston fans, a good purchase. It does have its strenghts.

Since watching it, I have never eaten another peanut on a bar!

3.0 out of 5 stars good 29 Jan 2008
By sean paul mccann VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
Along came polly is very slapstick in nature,that cant be ignored but it handles it well and can be classified as a good comedy first and foremost,secondly it has a romantic underbelly which will appeal to some while others find it a little too sickly but nonetheless this is good stuff.
The film belongs to ben stiller,he hams it up as a man who loses his wife on his honeymoon and is just so nice about it almost,he has a friend played with a real sense of brilliance by philip seymour hoffman who also brings laughs and an equal sense of humilation to his character,jenny aninston plays the free wheelin love interest who follows no rules while stiller is a man that accesses risks in his everyday life so they make for a somewhat forced couple but interesting at the same time.
The film contains some good laughs and a cringe worthy stance as well but when the sust settles this film has no real harm attached and should pass some time with few regrets,3 stars.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Stiller's Best 12 Aug 2004
Format:DVD
Along Came Polly was an entertaining film, but just wasn't an amazing one. Ben Stiller has made some good films in the past, and so perhaps comparing to 'Meet the Parents' is a little unfair. However I thought that the plot was a little weak, and the funny bits not as impressionable as in Meet the Parents. I think Ben Stiller's character should have played out to a larger extent, the fact that he analysed every situation no matter how trivial. I really did not see much point in the ferret! And the romance which was the main feature of the film did not really bowl you over either. The film itself was actually very short aswell. Overall it is a film worth seeing but not one you will particulary want to see again or one you will particularly remember

3.0 out of 5 stars Appeals to some... not to others 1 April 2007
Format:DVD
It was ok- hence the three stars. Typical romantic comedy in that it was funny in places, with a gorgeous leading female and the ultimately predictable ending, but that's why we watch them!

If you're a fan of Ben Stiller's OTT and somewhat slapstick performances you'll love it - *Look out for the smelly bathroom scene!*

If, however, you prefer comedy to be bit more subtle and sharp, to be honest this probably isn't the film for you.

It's on par with "Meet The Parents" and I enjoyed watching it, just as entertainment for a few hours, but I think there are better romantic comedies out there! Jennifer Anniston I think, is better in "The Break Up" for J.A. fans.

Summed up, I would watch it on Sky Movies as light-hearted entertainment, but having watched it once, I don't think I'd buy the DVD (unless Ben Stiller rocks your world!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Supremely funny! 3 Mar 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I am not usually a fan of Ben Stiller films (bar 'Meet the Parents') but Along Came Polly is an exception! The storyline is nothing special, Stiller plays Ruben Pfeffer - a risk assessment analyst, whose world collapses when his wife leaves him on their honeymoon for a scuba-diving French nudist. Ruben then bumps into an old schoolfriend, Polly Prince (played by Aniston)a commitment-phobic, indecisive free spirit, whom he eventually falls for. The road to happiness is by no means straightforward for Ruben, and the situation isn't helped by his interfering mother, and some seriously inappropriate advice on dating from his best friend, and ex-child movie star Sandy Lyle (played by the sublimely talented Philip Seymour Hoffman).
The storyline is definitely not the strong point of the film, but the cringeworthy situations of the characters are hilarious, and if you are the type of person that can relate to that sort of humour then you are going to love this film. From Ruben's interfering mother, his wife Lisa making him feel guilty for her own infedelity, to Sandy's performance in an amateur dramatics revival of Jesus Christ Superstar - these are all really cringeworthy moments, and you feel embarrassed for the characters at the humilation they are often subjected to, maybe because they happen in reality.
The key to enjoying this film is being able to appreciate indirect humour, the laughs are found within the helplessness of the character's predicament rather than slapstick silliness. I can only compare it to the British series "I'm Alan Patridge" - it's an acquired taste, but if you can grasp the humour, it's a real winner!

4.0 out of 5 stars fun is a risky business! 31 Dec 2004
Format:DVD
This is a romantic comdedy full of fun! It was better than I had anticipated from seeing the trailors, and is definately worth a watch!
The story is of Reuben (Ben Stiller) who lives his life scared of anything that could posibly go wrong, accessing risks for a living. He marries 'the perfect woman' Lisa, who leaves him on their honeymoon for hunky french nudist scuba-diving instructor Claude. Reuben returns home and when he bumps into old school friend and model pupil Polly Prince (Jeniffer Aniston), he is sure she is a sign to move on. Polly, however, is now Ben's opposite, always living on the edge, unreliable, unpredictable, and certainly not risk-free. But after spending time with Polly, the real Reuben begins to come out of his shell. All is going well until Lisa returns home and wants to get back together with her husband. Now Reuben faces a choice... and we have no doubt who he's going to choose! The film is predictable, and sometimes embarrassingly funny, but it's great inspirational light entertainment, not to be missed!
The stars, including Danny DeVito, sparkle in their roles!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unfortunately
there is once again a toilet scene with Stiller, say no more. The rest of the movie is charming with some unexpected twists. Overall an OK way to spend an hour and a half.
