Still, where this film has trouble is deciding whether it is a crude comedy or a romantic one. The jokes often seem out of place and unnecessary. Fleeting scenes of drug use and bathroom humor may be efforts to appeal to the boyfriends in the audience but, while at times eliciting a laugh, put this viewer on guard. If I hadn't been forewarned I would have come expecting a simple romance. I may have been repulsed beyond. As it was, I accepted it and completely enjoyed myself.
This was an interesting take on the story of two people separated by geography but bound by a perfect friendship. With previous success in the blending of romance and crass humor proved by films such as Knocked Up, this trend may be becoming more widely accepted and overall you still get a fulfilling romantic comedy with genuinely funny parts and the occasional urge to shake your head.
