I had one of those 'money off' vouchers for my local Vue cinema, and I noticed that it ran out on that very day. I decided to take advantage of the last chance I had to use this, and browsed around to see which films were in that I had not seen. Despite reading one or two negative reviews, I...

ProSweet and touching, great cast, enjoyable watch

ConsNothing really

As usual, I found myself on my weekly library run and had to browse the DVDs which are conveniently located by the check-out desk, and when I spotted this one on the shelf, I knew it would be one that both me and my other half would enjoy sitting down to watch it. After all it's probably from our...

ProNew, Rom-Com, good story

ConsNone

Yes, Definitely! Just recently I have found that a lot of romantic comedies are quite rude and crude and have a lot of unnecessary sex scenes. I also find them quite predictable and that they follow the same script as all the other movies. Definitely, Maybe was different though, I really liked it...

Product Information : Definitely, Maybe (DVD)

Manufacturer's product description

Ryan Reynolds and a bevy of excellent actresses star in this smart and touching romantic comedy about a little girl trying to understand her father's complicated history with women. Will Hayes (Reynolds) is in the midst of a divorce and his 11-year-old daughter Maya (Abigail Breslin) wants to understand what went wrong with her parents' relationship. She begs her father to tell her the entire story of how he met her mother. Will begrudgingly agrees, but changes the names of everyone involved, leaving it up to Maya to decipher who in the story is her mother. Thus Will begins his tale, weaving a romantic and amusing maze of missed connections and bad timing with the likes of three beautiful women: Summer (Rachel Weisz), April (Isla Fisher), and Emily (Elizabeth Banks). Will bounces from relationship to relationship, misunderstandings and confusion thwarting him every step of the way. Who will he end up with? Which woman is ultimately right for him?.<BR>Reynolds has long outgrown his VAN WILDER days, and does an excellent job of holding his own with the talented Fisher, Weisz, and Banks. The film is certainly a stand-out romantic comedies. The women are intelligent, well-drawn characters, and the relationships are painted with a funny, but realistic eye. DEFINITELY, MAYBE is a smart and sexy take on the complexities of love while sending a very positive, honest message to children of divorce.
