Great movie for date night or girls night!

I love romantic comedies and this film delivers. Shemar and Nadine are talented and fun to watch on screen. Bill Bellamy is hilarious! My girlfriends and I laughed throughout the entire movie. I think it was fine for kids over the age of 16 unless you don't allow your teenager to watch PG-13 films than you may want to leave them at home. It's refreshing to see a truly great romantic comedy. Plus, Shemar is insane to look at on camera. Wow just wow!!!
