Twentieth Century Fox just ran this clip on Gossip Girl this week:

This movie looks about as enticing as a blueberry enema. I liked it better when it was called Jerry Maguire.
Saw it last night. Boring and sad. Every good moment is in the trailer. But the shallow critics will think it’s art.
I’ll wait for the cam version to hit online and then… I won’t bother downloading. Seems like recycled material.
I saw it last night and I enjoyed it- very charming , funny, and extremely sexy. Jake Gyllenhaal has never been more appealing and confident than he is in this film. Jake finally becomes a ” man” in this movie. And, Anne Hathaway is very good in this movie- her best since “Rachel Getting Married”. The supporting cast is wonderful.
Thanks, flack! You’ve changed my mind entirely.
So I’m surprised to see this mentioned elsewhere on the site as a major awards contender…really? Who on earth thinks mountain an awards campaign around a romcom is a good idea?
And no, it’s not a drama or even a romdram– it’s a romcom. You can tell because the guy has to chase the girl down on her chosen-mode-of-transportation-out-of-town (usually an airport, here a bus). This is the romcom equivalent of guy-walking-away-in-slow-motion-as-something-behind-him-explodes (does he turn around? NO!) in action movies.
Movies that feature either one of these scenes (let alone those that showcase them in their trailers) do not win awards.
When it really comes down to it, Gyllenhaal is no a leading man – unless the character is somehow very unusual. The sooner he realizes it, the better.
As a supporting character, he is interesting and eye-catching. As a lead, he is flat boring and repellent.
Edwin ( or anyone else) , why comment on something you have not seen ? Once you see it, then give an educated opinion.
who thinks calling out the girls name is clever? It makes you look like a deranged retard. plus do you really need that stupid ploy if you’re a young doctor? please stop trying so hard
He’s not a doctor. He’s a pharmaceutical rep in training in that scene.
I’ll have to go with Jenny’s previous suggestion and advise you to see the movie first if you’re going to try to tear apart the particulars.
it was terrible and sexy…
