You know the lead characters will get together, but the road to happily-ever-after in this romantic comedy is less predictable than you might suspect from the trailer. Your Place or Mine (a title that also doesn't do the story justice) certainly follows the formula -- from meet-cute to separation to realization to togetherness. But more interesting is what happens along the way, as a lonely businessman bonds with a stifled teen boy and a sensible single mom takes a pause and rediscovers her own goals and desires. The settings -- colorful California and elegant New York City -- are also attractive.

Witherspoon and Kutcher have been scripted a good mix of comedic and more earnest situations to act out, and they're bolstered by a great supporting cast. The deadpan Tig Notaro plays the straight-talking LA friend, and a droll Zoe Chao is the overly confident (and overly convenient) millennial sidekick in NYC. Steve Zahn appears in a goofy role that feels like something we've seen from him before, and Jesse Williams is memorable as Debbie's aspirational love interest. There are some funny lines about Debbie's "Saran Wrap parenting" and "Gen-X earth mama" style and involving Peter's attempts to "rebrand" the unpopular Jack. The result is an unsurprising but agreeable romantic comedy whose cast is likely to prove the main draw.
