Really outstanding romcom, even if you don't like romcoms

I am not a fan of romantic comedies (romcoms), but this one really hit home. It was funny, fresh, and original. Parents: there is a lot of really strong and explicit sexual material here. I'm surprised this wasn't R. There's actual sex scenes, partial nudity, and explicit sexual references, all accompanied with language. What I would have rated it: R for Sexual Content and Language. Bottom Line: This movie is perfect for a date night, and then any other night. Thanks for reading! - Movie Man
