Top critical review

I didn’t expect much going into this, but it was an ok movie, with bright performances and scenery to match. This film does look good, even if the comedy doesn’t always work. Sometimes the romantic elements of the story get in the way of the action, but most of the time it works. The two stars, Jennifer Aniston and Gerard Butler, work well together. Sadly, they're not developed that much in order for us to care a lot for them. The action is competent, but you don’t go into a movie with the words romantic action comedy glued on throughout expecting city destroying action, ala Michael Bay. The thing is, it tries to be tense, but it fails because you don’t care a lot for the characters. For all its faults, though, this is a nice little romantic action comedy.
