(Quoting Bishop Jeremy Taylor) “Marriage hath in it less of beauty but more of safety, than the single life; it hath more care, but less danger, it is more merry, and more sad; it is fuller of sorrows, and fuller of joys; it lies under more burdens, but it is supported by all the strengths of love and charity, and those burdens are delightful.” – Ben Holmes

Brief Synopsis – When he encounters trouble on his way from NYC to Georgia for his wedding, a man meets an eccentric woman and they decide to travel together by any and every means possible.
My Take on it – I was surprised when I found this movie featuring Ben Affleck and Sandra Bullock since I wondered “How could I miss a rom-com with these two???”
I now know why…
This movie was horrendous!
Usually rom-com are fun to watch and I felt this one was just torture.
This movie was supposedly hyped as being a road movie like Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987) which baffles me even more since there is truly no way of comparing these two movies that are quite distant from one another when seeking entertainment value in a movie.
Skip it (even if you LOVE either of these actors)
Bottom Line – Terrible Rom-com. Hyped as being somewhat reminiscent of Planes, Trains and Automobiles (1987), but doesn’t come close.
Rating – Razzie Worthy
