All I really ask for of a romantic comedy is for it to be honest and realistic. Maybe that's what I want because they tend to be melodramatic and idealized, but this is fully funny, charming, well acted, honest, and realistic. These characters act like real people; do you know how rare that is? Their discussions are engaging and dry, and their problems are relatable. James Gandolfini's part is so good considering that it's rather different than his previous work, but I saw him as Albert, not James. (And yet again, he will be missed.) Despite the film's semi-sudden heavy handed nature towards the third act, it's consistent in its realism and overall well made, thanks to the acting, writing, and directing. And that's really refreshing. 8.8/10, great, two thumbs up, far above average, etc.
