While the baseball comments rage on, I just thought I'd mention:
It wasn't a great movie, or even a good movie, but it was better than it had to be, and it kept me entertained after a really long work day.
Owen Wilson does his Owen Wilson thang, and there was good yukkage. I resented being called upon to sympathize/identify with the Kate Hudson character, who was rather controlling, and to villify the Matt Dillon character, who was just trying to do the right thing, but Hollywood and I have an understanding that if it makes me laugh*, I overlook its emotional tone-deafness and lack of insight into how people really interact.
*I feel obliged to add that it's not a total laff-riot or anything, just a few good warm-hearted chuckles, mostly due to Owen Wilson's delivery.
