Romantic comedy starring Ryan Reynolds. Will Hayes (Reynolds) is a 30-something father who is in the middle of a divorce when his 10-year-old daughter, Maya (Abigail Breslin), asks him to describe his life before he married her mother. For Maya, Will recounts his past as an ambitious young politician. He also recalls relationships he had with three very different women, changing their names so Maya has to guess who the woman is that her father finally married. Is her mother Will's college sweetheart, Emily (Elizabeth Banks)? Or his longtime best friend and confidante, April (Isla Fisher)? Or is she the free-spirited and ambitious journalist, Summer (Rachel Weisz)?
The latest romantic comedy from the Working Title production line, Definitely, Maybe got a little forgotten on its original cinematic release in early 2008. Yet beneath the covers here is a smart, enjoyable film, that does Ryan Reynolds' potential as a romantic lead no harm whatsoever.
The story of Definitely, Maybe is mainly told in flashback, as Reynolds' daughter in the film (played by Little Miss Sunshine's Abigal Breslin) quizzes him as to how he met his mother, who hes in the process of getting a divorce from. Reynolds' tale follows three failed romances, and the film holds back on revealing the answer to its mysteries until pretty much the final reel.
Deftly written and directed by Adam Brooks (who previously had scribing credits on Practical Magic, Wimbledon and Bridget Jones: The Edge Of Reason, among others), Definitely, Maybe has several factors in its corner. Firstly, the script is witty, well layered, and engaging. Secondly, the casting is good, too. Reynolds is in good form here, and Elizabeth Banks, Isla Fisher and Rachel Weisz turn in fine performances as the three women in his life. And finally, while only slightly outstaying its welcome, Definitely, Maybe achieves a satisfying balance of wit and romance, and then manages to squeeze in a great Kevin Kline cameo on top. Can't be bad.
It may not be talked about in the same breath as other Working Title successes such as Notting Hill and Love Actually, yet Definitely, Maybe is very worthy of DVD discovery. With good rewatch value too, it's a recommended buy. --Simon BrewSee all Product Description

This isn't your typical Rom-Com as its not altogether that funny, it's more a light hearted detective story and it's all set against the boring sounding backdrop of the American Presidential Fundraising campaigns of the 90's. What we get is a general overview of Dad's roller-coaster love life as he gradually builds his career. Despite this the film is surprisingly entertaining mainly due ro the contrasting romances as dad falls in and out of love as we unravel the threads of the story through to its climax [forgive the pun -too much Kevin Kline]. What's good about this film is that no-one comes out of it unscathed as all show some nasty traits With plenty of twists, turns and broken hearts, this is sure to please most but it can be easy to lose your way but Maya is usually there with her questions to put you back on track.
The single disc features multiple language choices at the start, has a short film on aids then goes to main screen choices, Bonus material is 3 behind the scenes documentaries and about 4 deleted scenes. So who is the mum, just who did he marry and who does he end up with? Well, you need to see the movie to answer those. This probably, definitely, maybe, should be on your to see list.
The story is very honest and uncomplicated. Although billed as a romantic comedy, the writers have deliberately not made it a 'laugh out loud' type film, instead concentrating on good drama and injecting it with lots of subtle humour that works well. The film never goes down the route of over-the-top sickly sentimentality, but instead shows how real people can sometimes get things wrong and how easy it is to derail a promising relationship.
This is a very good romantic comedy that successfully combines a genuinely engaging storyline with plenty of good humour, a winning formula that should even win over the romantic comedy sceptics, check it out.
It's bittersweet in many places, seeing how easy it is for life to get in the way of relationships, or for the timing to be wrong, but I absolutely promise you will finish the film with a warm glow for the rest of the day. It's not cloying, or saccharine, and gives a real impression of just how complicated love can be - but also how enriching and life-affirming.
It's interesting, insightful, funny. I think i spent a lot of time on the edge of the sofa, interested to what happens next. No Spoiler here, but the end is how films should finish. I finished watching this film and instantly all i wanted to do was watch it again.
If you want a great film that you could probably watch a number of times and never get bored, BUY THIS FILM.
ohh and if you are a guy, the presence of Isla Fisher and Rachel Wiesz is never going to be a bad thing.
Ryan Reynolds (Just Friends) stars as Will Hayes, a middle aged man who is coming close to a divorce and when his daughter asks about her mother, Will takes a look back at the past years of his life.
Don't judge the film by the trailer because there is so much more on offer. Though the trailer for the film would give a sense of predictability and humour, the film was a delightful surprise with its great precise dialogue and dramatic scenarios, giving an account of true realism, of real life and its complications with married people, and couples.
The plot is consistent with excellent twists and turns as Will dives deep into his relationship past, and there is always that great creativity about who it could be.
Unlike a lot of other rom-coms, this 2008 film actually invites the audience into it, trying to make them guess and wonder who Will may end up with, and who the mother of Mai could be, which makes the film very unique and rather not the same old "Will he get it together with her?" There are a few clichés there, but still it maintains a more realistic drama approach to differ it which made me enjoy it.
There are a few great one liners and a few chucklesome moments, not as funny as other romantic comedies, but that isn't the point of this film. The point was trying to maintain a realistic approach of relationships, which it did spot on.
There is great acting from all involved which goes brilliantly with the direction and settings used by director Brooks.Read more ›
