An enjoyable rom-com with a pretty solid plot. Nothing amazing or gorund-breaking here though.

Bought if for my girlfriend (honestly!) and watched it her. The film follows Jennifer Aniston's character (Sarah Huttinger) who hails from Pasadena, California but has always felt like the black sheep of the family, and is unsure whether or not she is biologically related to her family or adopted. Following hearing a rumour her deceased mother had an affair, she sets out to find the truth once and for all.
Without spoiling the movie too much, her search takes her on a roller-coaster of emotions, temptation and epiphanies about life, love and the usual introspective stuff, all the while seemingly leading her husband to be on a wild goose chase.
I don't normally bother with this type of film, but decided to give it a go. It is pretty funny, the humour is typical of Aniston, and has a strong supporting cast in Mark Ruffalo, Kevin Costner et al, but this is nothing amazing and is one of those films where one viewing is more than enough.
