Not for everyone, but my wife and I found it hysterical
September 19, 2018
There were moments in this movie where I laughed so hard I couldn't see straight, and that is damn rare for me. This is not a typical romantic comedy so much as misanthropes thrown together until they grudgingly enjoy each other's company. This movie isn't about two people falling into a romance, so much as two hurt, lonely, bitter people re-discovering the hope that romance might actually exist. Keanu Reeves doesn't make my list of favorite actors, but he is viciously funny throughout this movie. Winona Ryder nails her role as well, trading snide, sarcastic zingers back and forth with Keanu Reeves. Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder are the only ones with dialogue except for overheard t.v.s.
If you go into this movie wanting a traditional romantic comedy you will be bitterly disappointed. If you are looking for snappy, often hysterical, sarcasm delivered by two perfectly cast actors, you'll enjoy this.
