  • Poster: C-

Review:

Painfully rote, unimaginative and overly sentimentalized. It's a perfect fit for the companion film, just not a very good design.

  • Trailer: C

Review:

Insert attractive male A and pretty female B in slot C. Add unnecessary complication D into burgeoning relationship E. Mix in jealous ex F and snarky mother G and voila. You have another particle board desk that will fall apart after any measure of use.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
