Review: Along Came Polly

Ben Stiller is clearly THE man for romantic comedies these past few years, and of course, as a comedian, it’s all deserved. In any movie he’s in, there are at least a few laugh out loud moments. You can safely bet your grandma’s set of teeth on that.
Same goes for this one. Along with Philip Seymour Hoffman he sets the tone. A couple of supporting actors, and you have yourself a movie. The characters are well defined. The romantic relationship, however, is not so well endowed. It’s going too fast, while being very predictable, so it feels unnatural. While the pace at which things moves is okay, there’s no real story to speak of. That leaves you with only the fun moments that are scattered all over.6½.
