Along Came Polly
In case you don't know, Along Came Polly stars Ben Stiller and Jennifer Aniston and is about a risk analyst who's wife (Debbra Messing, Grace of Will and Grace) cheats on him... on the first day of their honeymoon.
For a comedy, this movie has very deep characters with real personalities that really work. It's not something you find often. It's rather funny, too with a great plot. Overall it's very enjoyable. The only thing I didn't really like is that Philip Seymour Hoffman, whom I normally like (he was enjoyable in Almost Famous, Patch Adams, and The Big Lebowski), was too much like Jack Black in this movie. It was like he was playing Jack Black playing Sandy Lyle (the movie's character). Maybe it's just because it's a part that JB would normally play, but it was still annoying. But like I said, it's a good movie. Although it's hard to feel bad for Ben Stiller's character towards the end when he has to choose between his wife or new "fling." When you have to pick between the two most attractive women on Must-see-tv Thursdays, it's pretty much win-win. :-)
