A generic, predictable movie that is a decent watch. A decent date movie.
"You can't fix a brain with crazy ideas." Alice (Biel) has everything she wants in life. A job she loves and is good at, a loving family and a boyfriend who has just asked her to marry him. Right after the proposal a freak accident happens and she is shot in the head with a nail. With her life falling apart around her she sees Congressman Birdwell (Gyllenhaal) on the TV and thinks he is the answer to her problems. This movie is pretty much exactly what you would expect it to be. Funny in parts, pretty predictable, little generic but at the same time not a terrible movie. Every once in a while it's nice to just put a movie on without having to think about it and just enjoy yourself. This is that type of movie. There really isn't too much else to say about this one. I liked it enough, but wouldn't watch it again and nothing to rush and see, but I have seen worse. Overall, a generic, predictable movie that is a decent watch. A decent date movie. I give this a B-.
