A few points on "How Do You Know?"

  • I really hate this type of romantic comedy. The awkwardly put together empty scenes, the obnoxious stalling of the inevitable ending, the painfully dragged out comic relief from a random supporting character, etc...
  • This is hands down the worst character of Reese Witherspoon's career. She's unbearable, and her need to vocalize canned motivational/inspirational sayings is painful.
  • Paul Rudd is the only thing worth a damn in this movie, and he's the only person who ever generates a decent laugh.
  • Jack Nicholson and Owen Wilson are completely wasted.
  • The script is as indecisive as Witherspoon's character. It's also equally insufferable.
  • This was written by the same man who gave us Broadcast News. That's just tragic.
Grade: D-/F
