One iffy scene

We watched it with our 14 year olds and the only scene that was iffy was when they talked AT LENGTH about different places to have sex, and what the main characters "liked in bed".

This movie seems to start out okay, but when it would get to the parts that were supposed to be funny I would just cringe or not laugh. Robin Williams character is the small, very slight saving grace (if you could even call it that) of this movie. The couple just ends up bickering the whole time, mainly for stupid reasons. And in some cases, not very many, this could be seen as charming and create some good chemistry, but here it was just annoying. I watched to end to see if it would get better, but nothing really changed. There are some cute moments, but other than that I just ended up being slightly irritated.
