Short Review

Rated 3.0

Three co-workers (Jennifer Connelly, Jennifer Aniston, Ginnifer Goodwin) go through various romantic complications with their respective husbands, boyfriends and casual dates. Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein’s script (from Greg Behrendt and Liz Tuccillo’s book) is a PG-13-rated, road company Sex and the City (the city here being Baltimore), agreeably bland, and blandly directed by Ken Kwapis. It amounts to a lot of pretty people (including Ben Affleck, Drew Barrymore, Justin Long, Scarlett Johansson, Kevin Connolly and Bradley Cooper) wearing pretty clothes, going to various picturesque and trendy-looking places and doing mildly amusing things. The movie goes down easily, all the while promising a level of depth and insight it never quite gets around to delivering. Empty calories, maybe, but tasty enough.
