This review is from: Stuck In Love [DVD] (DVD)
I'm surprised people are referring to this movie as a 'romantic comedy' - that's pretty misleading. This is solidly in the drama slot - albeit a story about (mature) love.
As with any well written drama, the writer (also the director in this film) risks alienating us from his main characters. At times, we really do wish the cheating ex husband would just give up trying to get his wife back and move on with his life. Even his kids want to tell him to give up. It's a grinding process and could so easily bore us, but Greg Kinnear's quiet persistence finally wins us over... and his ex, who has already started a new and seemingly fulfilling relationship? Watch to find out.
